Sometimes I just have knee jerk reactions.
Wednesday night when I was at the gym it was monsoon type raining, which broke the humidity just enough to get me thinking I should outside run before dark...what's a little thunder and rain, right. I texted run buddy and she's like...run three miles in the rain, no problem. I ran over to run buddy's house, which is almost a mile from mine and off we went. You have to appreciate a friend who will lace up and get soaked with you. I wish I had thought to take a picture, we looked like drowned rats, but happy ones. I have to confess though, I took a quick walk break on the last mile on a very small hill lol. I had been at the gym, ran two miles warm up on the treadmill, and worked weights for almost two hours and done the leg press right before I left the gym. The last mile my tushie was so tight I couldn't handle even a small hill, but I still finished strong once it was flat again ")
My craziness continued into today...
We had a party day at work, I ate all kind of yummy food and dessert and I didn't even log it.
|This is Rufus who is finally going to get some sleep in his retirement and that's me loose in the world with no make up and twisted up hair|
|That's Sylvia - the lady who hired me three years ago ;)|
|Two of my fav peeps- our security guard and counselor- Trevor sure talked me off some ledges this year (and he thought he was there just for the kids lol)|
When I saw these pictures I started freaking a bit...some days I just can't believe how bad I leave the house looking...Driving home I was in manic thinking mode, go to the salon, cut the hair, get it dyed, wax the eyebrows, buy some new clothes lol
Then I got home and started being lazy because I had exhausted myself thinking about all the things I should be doing to make myself look a little more presentable.
An hour later I put on my running clothes and went to run on the treadmill.
Five miles later I didn't care about all that stuff, I was just happy I got a run in.
Then I got home and the euphoric feeling wore off a little after I showered, so I went to the store and got a box of hair dye, a new color, and now I am a little redder than I want to be. Dang, knee jerk reactions...
Moral of the story...I should have pushed out another mile and I would have been too tired to go get hair dye :)
Oh well, the stuff fades, I just have to walk around blazing red for awhile.
|This may be an exaggeration|
At least I have 11 miles of running in this week so far...
Ever had a knee jerk reaction to something you'd like to confess to? Dye your own hair? How's your week going?
I will be catching up with all my regular blog reading as soon as things calm down at work - last day for the kids is Friday the 13th.
