So after yesterday's ride and short brick run, my legs were feeling pretty good. I didn't have to spend the last ten miles out of the saddle because of a painful hoo-area, and was actually feeling pretty darn buff. So today I decided that my legs just had NOT had enough torture for one weekend and thought "Well I'll go out and just run as far as I feel like it, and when I feel I can't run any more Roy can get the car and I'll go home." Of course I should know myself better than that by now. My long run for the week was 18 miles and the "Freak Tory" is not going to NOT do 18 miles, by GOD! 88th I figured I'd just cut over to Starbucks and do about six miles. At 116th I thought nine miles might suffice so maybe I'd just do that. But would I stop? No, my inner freak kept going. Turned around at ten miles, back towards 116th, figured that would be 14 and would be "enough" but no. Decided to run it in to Haggens and call it a day, figuring that would be around 17...but if I was THAT close, why wouldn't I just run past half a mile and run back. Somehow Dude (Garmin) paused himself at mile 17.17 so when I looked down a bit later and it was STILL 17.17 I grrrrred, turned him back on and kept going for a total of 18.34.

My legs and I have filed a legal separation. I tried to coax them back into the house with an hour long soak in the tub and a german chocolate brownie, but no. I think a divorce is pending.

I think tomorrow shall be a rest day....

Slow wet run. It's always such a bummer the day after a REALLY nice day when it rains. It's like "No FAIR!!!"

Decided to bike into work today to see if it would be reasonable to ride in the morning. I am TERRIFIED going over the bridges leading out of town! No way I could do them in the morning in the dark. Too bad, too. The distance isn't bad (about 13 miles), and it's just a mix of rollers and flat, with two big hills, but doable. But not being able to see the holes in the bridge, or the side that drops into traffic makes it a no go.

Went to the mall and had my nails done and brows waxed. Sipped coffee then headed home. Hadn't been time enough for cleaning fairies to do their magic, so rode across town for lunch.

Not too bad considering I walked a little at the beginning and the end and biked 31 miles this morning and had a massage between miles 3 and 4. I was going to walk home but I was so HUNGRY I couldn't wait that long!

One of those beautiful cold/warm runs. It's about 45 out, but the sun is out. So it's too hot to wear a jacket, but too cold to run in a tank, so of course I wore a jacket and a tank and alternated between jacket on/too hot and jacket off/too cold. But oh well! It didn't snow or rain so I'm not complaining (even if it's hard to type because my hands are still frozen). Ran with Dash who kind of petered out the last mile and a half and is now snoring on the couch. Poor buddy!

Rest day!!

Didn't feel like one, though. I went to the bank. I deposited my check, opened a savings acct (new bank acct so this was the first deposit...not like I don't have savings), opened a Cd. Then went over to Trader Joe's, shopped there for a bit. Hopped over to the sporting goods store, realized it was really more a FASHION goods store and left. Picked up bread at Great Harvest. Made a Costco run. Went to the grocery store. Picked up Rock Band for my wonderful husband (who deserved it). Came home STARVING and heated up some LOs. Put away the groceries. Did the dishes. Cleaned the kitchen. Watched Oprah for awhile, letting Suze Orman make me feel guilty for not having 8 years of emergency funds socked away. Picked up Roy. Played Rock Band for two hours and now I'm pooped! Fun day, though!
