It’s Wednesday already? How did that happen? This week seems to be flying by…
We are back from Venice. Yes, I know, it WAS a short trip. We got there around 7:30pm last nite and by the time we unloaded everything, it was dark.
And if you know anything at all about me or have read this blog more than once or twice, you know that creatures such as this and this tend to
find stalk me. So it was no surprise to anyone when they heard me screaming my head off around 8:30ish last night because this little creature wanted a ride on my head:
Yes. That IS a tree frog. And later in the evening he decided to jump on my leg, at which point I decided that outdoor Halloween decorations in a rental house aren’t really all that necessary and I abandoned that task and promptly went inside. Done.
I got up very early this morning and while MacGyver and our friend Brian worked on the boat enclosure thingy, I escaped for a 9 mile run…and it was pretty epic. Here’s a view of the water from the Legacy Trail:
There were 4 manatees swimming there this morning and it was so serene.
If I had the new Garmin Forerunner 620 I’m sure I’d have all kinds of stats to share with you but Garmin isn’t caving in to my shameless plugs….I need that new Garmin, any ideas?
And don’t suggest that I purchase it because in case you didn’t already know, MacGyver is also known as Little Bird, because he is Cheap, Cheap!
After I got back to the house this morning, Hank decided that I didn’t get enough miles and he put his leash on and attached the handle to my hand and took me for a walk.
I planned on taking a gazillion pictures but Hank was a little frustrated with my pace and so I put down the camera and got to movin.
After we got back to the house, MacGyver went to get the boat and then we came back home. So, yeah, it was a very short trip.
And now, I am trying to re-arrange my training schedule because it’s not enough that it’s crazy hot here we may also be getting a tropical storm or hurricane. And even if we don’t MacGyver wants to go to the Cabin this weekend.
We really need to finish the walls and MacGyver wants to install some electrical outlets..(you know cause we only have a generator and no power). Men have totally different priorities than women. I would prefer a working bathroom myself, but MacGyver thinks a toilet chair behind a hill is perfectly suitable. Go figure. You have no idea how constipated I am every time we come home from there. And don’t get the wrong idea, I have no problem with going #2 outside, it’s the rattlesnakes that freak me out.
Anyway, whatever we’re doing, training must be modified. I have a 15k in around 11 days and then it’s half marathons and marathons for the next several months! I can’t lie, I’m pretty excited about it!
Do you ever have to modify your training schedule? Ever had a tree frog on your head?
