It’s storming here. There’s not a lot of rain like we normally have in the summer, but the lightning and thunder are ferocious. I actually like it, except when it knocks the cable or the Internet out, then it just pisses me off. Clearly, I have needs….
I got a new computer! I know, I know, it’s about time right? But here’s the thing, I have serious anxiety when it comes to learning a new system. It kind of freaks me out. So, the new computer has been sitting on the counter since we brought it home at noon yesterday. I did manage to register it and then I put in the security key for internet access but that’s as far as I got. I wasn’t even the one who took it out of the box and charged it up, MacGyver did. I am afraid of my new laptop! What the hell is wrong with me?
I don’t have the same reaction when I get new clothes or new shoes. I NEED to put those things on immediately. New shoes make me wanna run and jump.
Have I mentioned that I’ve been working on my planks? I’m up to 2 minutes now. That may not seem like a lot but I promise you it’s ridiculously long for me. I do 1 two minute plank in the morning before I run and then I do a series of 30 second planks for 15 minutes 3 times a week. I’m pretty sure behind that little layer of fat you might actually be able to see a 2 pack. It’s coming….patience and persistence, right?
Did you know that armadillo’s have really bad eyesight? Well apparently they do. I would know this because twice in the past week I have collided with them while out running. On Saturday I literally tripped on one on the Legacy Trail because he walked out right in front of me. This morning a huge armadillo came out of the woods just as I hit the path to Kapok Park and we ending in the exact same spot. I stepped on the back of his tail and then jumped over him. He scampered off into the sea grass after charging at me first. It was a little unnerving but it did prompt me to research them hence the reason I know they have poor eyesight.
What’s the best animal encounter you’ve had on a run?
Are you afraid of new technology?
How long can you hold a plank?
