4 x Hill
Well I woke up (by alarm) with my head feeling like it had been in a pressure cooker all night! I reluctantly got up only to find that my dog had diarrhea. As I am cleaning up the vile mess, the lovely dogs squats, and relieves herself of some more runny, smelly poo (it smelled like a skunk had sprayed)! I hate how diarrhea gets into the cracks of the hardwood floors : (
I get both messes cleaned up and make myself a tea. I feed Sadie (IBS pup) and she proceeds to throw up all over the kitchen floor... not just the food but a whole pile of yellow, gooey bile as well! I clean that up and start to drink my tea..... if I haven't mentioned it before I am not a morning person and this wouldn't have been pleasant on a good day. Couple it with this head cold that has started, and I wanted to just crawl back in bed.
I get a message that my running partner has cancelled because he is not feeling well. Yet another reason to go back to bed. I do muster up the energy and drive off to do my hill work in the crazy fog (picture above was taken 2 hours after my drive to the park). It's foggy but, warm!!! Almost 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Once I get going, I feel great! The trails are water logged piles of slush... my toes are soaked almost immediately!!! The paved path areas are sheets of ice so I slide across a few to get to the big hill. I find myself an alternative route up the hill as the main strip is ice covered (I forgot my stable- icers)..... by the fourth repeat I have created some real slick spots. The workout was pretty great... all things considered!
As I finished stretching and got into the car I realized how horrible I felt... went off to buy some NyQuil and lunch. That brings me to now. I have taken some NyQuil and will be heading off to bed for a few ZZZZZZZ's before starting P90X.
