Anybody else's pets snuggle when you're sick? Allie hung around a lot while I was sick. I just couldn't have her snuggling on my stomach.
Saturday was when my discipline was really tested. I'd been looking forward to Saturday's forecast all week. Mid-60s, and lots of sunshine. I would've run in the morning before it got too warm, but instead I did some easy exercises for my adductor, and then did an easy 4 miles on the bike in the afternoon. I got cranky too. I knew I was doing the smart thing and opting for the low impact test on Saturday, to see how I felt physically, but it didn't make my ego feel any better. I had the windows open in the house, and I was wearing shorts during my workout. I knew I could test myself on Sunday with my run because I did feel good on the bike.
Does anybody here watch Say Yes to the Dress? They had a bride on Saturday's episode who was running the RnR Las Vegas half, and she and her fiancee were getting married during the RnR ceremony. She was looking for a dress she could run in. The episode ended with footage of them running the race, and it really made me want to do Vegas again. I had so much fun in November.
Sunday I woke up to a couple of texts from my mom. I didn't get them the night before since I'd gone up to read in bed. I'm doing a book club March 18 and the book is a Gentleman in Moscow. Since I was reading early last night, I didn't get my mom's text until this morning. David Ogden Stiers passed away Saturday. The article I read said he's best known for Major Charles Emerson Winchester III, on MASH, but no, to me he will always be Cogsworth. The news made me tear up a little bit, and then I saw Sir Roger Bannister also died Saturday. Poop on Saturday!
Sunday I did run. The schedule had 3, and I made to 2.5. I'll put that down as a win after Thursday and Friday. I also used the treadmill so I could step off whenever I needed to. I have 3 miles again on Tuesday, and I hope I can get outside again. I've got the itch, and if I need more layers, so be it. It's sunny for longer at the end of day, and I can't wait for DST next Sunday. I will be incredibly groggy next Monday, and that always happens. The long day of sunlight will make up for it.
