Run, Run, Run

I actually had a chance to run 2 days in a row! Woohoo!

Yesterday was a super short treadmill run. The kiddo did not want to go to sleep, so it was after 9 pm before I had a chance to hop on the treadmill. It was the perfect excuse to watch the silly girls on The Bachelor get all catty over Andy, the Marine surgeon with the big pecs and big teeth. Trash TV at it's best, um worst, and the perfect distraction from the boring treadmill. :-) I don't know what's worse - the fact that I enjoy watching this crap, the fact that this guy has a fan site, or the fact that I know this guy has a fan site.

Running Stats
Conditions - treadmill
Distance - 2 miles
Run time - 22:06
Pace - 11:03

Today, I was actually prepared! I remembered to bring my running clothes to work and managed to fit in a quick loop around the park before rushing home before the hubby had to leave for work. It was humid as hell!

I started my loop at a pretty good pace...at least it felt like a good pace. I forgot to charge the Garmin, so who knows. I brought my shuffle and it turns out Bad Religion makes for some good running music! I stopped at the water fountain on Memorial and walked just a tiny bit. Near the tennis courts, I ran into June who was finishing up some speed work. I stopped once more for some water at the stretching area and finished my loop. I hope jogging to my car at the pool made up for the extra .1 to make 3 miles. Oh, and both yesterday and today my shins decided to protest. I think it's time for new shoes...at least I hope that's all it is.

So that's it...nothing too exciting. I have to be at work by 6:45 am and I have a dentist appointment in the afternoon, so the chances of running tomorrow are slim. By the way, I really don't like going to the dentist. I am a big ol' chicken, so send me some healthy gums and teeth vibes if you don't mind. :-)

I'm just glad Psycho Stephanie is outta there. I see a "goodbye" in Amber's future next week.

But I didn't know about the fan site.

Good luck at the dentist. I love my Crest toothbrush that has the battery in it. It has a lot more zing in it than the Oral-B one I had that finally wore out.

Barbara - Stephanie got on my last nerve. But, I heard Amber was in until at least the final 4...apparently, the Bachelor crew was at her school in Sugarland filming her class when she and Andy were on their date here.

ok, ok, ok, I admit to watching The Bachelor. I'm not necessarily pulling for anyone at this point, but I too am glad that Stephanie is gone.
