Here I am feeling annoyed that my favorite blogs don't have enough to read. I mean, they blog daily, but Im annoyed that the ones I like don't have anything new to read. Not annoyed...surprised. Bored. And Im thinking; if there are readers they should blog a few times a day. Even if they figure they need to make up funny things to write about. I am demanding LOL. (they write lots. They dont owe anything.)
And I realise I am only writing about once a week. I get it. Im a Hypocrite. I owe a blog post. Even if no one is reading it.
Bless me for I have forgotten, It's been 5 days since my last blog post....
I will give some Hail Mary's and a post about what's been up.
Re-read last few posts. That's what's been up.
Is it possible I just have nothing to say? I mean, everyone is saying it already! I just write to keep track of my workouts. Which I am also still doing on the MapMyRun training log. But sometimes I just wish I had more witty things to say.
Friday morning started with Holly's hockey practice at 7 am and I think it is nice to start the day with a skate at the rink while watching the sun come up (red sky warning and all that). We skated a lot and then I got the kids to school with their breakfast and muffins and I went to work.
We did get the snow we were expecting last week. It snowed after school and lasted til evening, got about 3-4 inches which is just enough to make things slippy. The cold moved in quite solidly and we had -12 for wake up weather on Saturday. After hockey scrimmage in the morning, I took my running clothes along and was able to go right out from the rink; skipping that home step makes the run far more likely to happen. There is something about going home that is like a black hole; I go in the house and never come out ;)
So I went right from the rinking thinking the side walks would be better than the roads; I dunno...they were pretty unpleasant! They were cleaned up by the rink by a plow, and that left beind a bit of snow over ice; Then on the main road out they were not cleaned at all! For about a km it was full snowfall. I know, only 3-4 inches but it was smooshed about and slippery and shifty. Fun! Then back on cleaned sidewalks, but they had been cleaned by a sweeper type cleaner, which only removes the looser snow and left behind everyone's footfalls, which were stuck to the cement. Everywhere someone stepped a couple of inches of snow remained :) It was just so much fun. My hips ached by the time I got to the car, not to mention the cold with wind chill. I was happy to finish 9.8 km but it took 1:02:45. Ugh.
The rest of Saturday was a blur of hockey game, house cleaning, kids over, and early to bed.
Sunday morning was sluggish; I had a terrible headache, and it was worse laying down but bad sitting up. After everyone was off to church and hockey I went out for a short run (6.5 km) up the hill and back, then ate and went to my hockey game. We lost that game but I did score a goal and it wasnt a bad game although I have a feeling the other team was just toying with us. They likely could have scored more on us.
There was no soccer this week, so after Annika's game (they won 7-2) we were able to go to Holly's game across town (they won 5-1) and then after a period of the highschool game we went home.
Monday comes too early. It's long day at work and there was no chance for a run. But I did get to skate at Annika's hockey practice so at least there was that. another early night.
Tuesday morning I was awake early. I took the kids to school and met friends for a run. We ended up, with the rain and ice and someone's wonky knee, walking a fair amount and on that ice I suspect it was a good thing. It warmed up to about 10 C during the day and rained and rained. I saw my osteopath after work and she did something nice to me knee; it's feeling pretty good tonight.
So plans for tomorrow include an afternoon run, and work. Not much else at the moment. The kids might have more plans ;)
