I came across this series from Running With Spoons recently and thought today would be the perfect time to join in.
Similar to my sporadic Join Me for Tea posts, here’s my brain dump for the week:
– Cold. Relating to both the weather and my health. Tuesday night I came home with a swollen gland and the beginnings of a sore throat. Yesterday, during our day off due to ice, it escalated into a full-blown cold. The JA has it, too. Forgive us for our snotty noses, achy bodies and general crankiness for the next few days.
– Speaking of achy bodies, I printed this bad boy earlier this week. While I haven’t bit the bullet and officially signed up, it’s happening. Giving myself a challenging race will keep me motivated during the remainder of winter. Even with my cold, I pushed myself out the door this morning to get my run in (and allow my legs to recover) before barre tonight. It’s going to be a long road if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Send me good vibes & feel free to chime in with any training tips!
– Puppy update. Watson’s doing well with his heartworm treatment. However, his shots start the first week in March and he’s already getting antsy. Things will only get worse as the weather warms up. He’ll be on sedatives for March and April but not fully recovered until November. Poor pupalup will miss out on a whole spring/summer of extreme activity. Pray for us all.
– I need a phone intervention. My iPhone hasn’t been able to back up in 10 weeks because there’s not enough storage. Why? Because I hoard pictures. Any good apps/suggestions on how to keep this under control? And don’t suggest Instagram. That’s part of the problem.
