My Week In Pictures

J and I have been sick this week. There has been a lot of coughing and sneezing plus some tons of tea and cough drops. Thankfully there is a ton of new TV on this week or I may have been bored out of my skull.

Not me but a reenactment of the week.

This happened while getting into my car this morning.

Broken Glasses

The glasses I need to drive, that I do not have a backup for.

I can't believe the drink stayed on the car bumper

This drink stayed on the bumper even when they drove over train tracks. Land Rovers have magic bumpers?

Tail jumped right into the dryer and laid down.

Crunchie Candy Bars

Crunchie! The most delicious candy bars in the whole world. Cannot wait to eat these.

How has your week been? Do you go stir crazy when you are sick?

A Day Of Rest

Lazy Saturdays might be the best kind. Today I slept in and did not do one ounce of anything that wasn’t relaxing.

I caught up on some TV. Hello Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle, I love you but hate that I have to wait until January for new episodes.

I practiced with the fancy new camera.

I used this tutorial on how to create custom user profiles. It was fun to play around with the different settings.

My running clothes are in the washer so I am less stinky for my race tomorrow. The Garmin and iPod Shuffle are charging. I should be ready and rested to race tomorrow.

Yesterdays comments proved that many of us have difficulty relaxing before races. It can be difficulty sleeping or just a stomach full of butterflies. I have no solution to this and everyday I get closer to my upcoming Half, the more nervous I get. Taking today to enjoy myself and be unproductive is definitely helping. Trusting that I did enough, worked hard, and am prepared to the best I can.

This did show up in my email today.

Makes it much more real.

Long Run Saturday

Long Run Saturday has been a success so far. I actually woke up early enough to beat the Florida heat and humidity. The torrential rains last night, made the humidity that was around much more bearable.

I have run in Celebration before but usually start off further from town. This time I was able to run through the wooded areas and it was glorious.

Bridge through the woods and swamp.

It wouldn’t be Florida, without palm trees.

Obligatory Garmin shot.

Garmin Time

Seven miles! My longest run in a very long time. Long enough to make me feel ready for the 15K in two weeks.

Sadly, this run was amazing minus one thing. I forgot my fuel at home and home is far enough away that turning around was impossible.

I ended the run at Starbucks because I was starving.

Non-fat latte.

Two Moms in the Raw bar. I had never had one before but it was pretty good. Would eat it again.

Did you get a good workout on in today?

Any thoughts on raw food bars? Good or gross?
