Quite the scary run I had this morning. For the past few weeks the shelf that holds my precious computer has been rather wobbly. I have been nagging (does it count as nagging if I was doing it in my head and forgot to actually tell him in real life?) Billy to fix the shelf (once again, in my head) but it never got done (yep, definitely my fault).
Today it broke at mile 1.8. My life flashed before my eyes as I had to grab the shelf with one hand and my computer with the other while I was running to prevent it from crushing me.
Luckily, I was able to stand my computer up on the treadmill and somewhat see the screen. Heaven forbid I run without my favorite tv shows. The computer covered the screen of the treadmill which made the time fly by and me go longer than I was planning for. Having enough time to get ready and look like a real person is totally overrated.
2nd scary thing that occurred: a spider came down from the ceiling. It was just a miniature one but it came fast and looked deadly. No picture, I was too busy fighting for my life. The joys of a home built in 1908.
Wow, I am good at making things sound a lot more dramatic than they really are but anytime something scary happens when it is still dark = way more scary.
Ever wonder what I eat throughout the day? I know you said no to that question but oh well. Here’s what I am eating this week:
Bfast: greek yogurt with cut up grapes and peaches.
Snacks that I eat throughout the day: 2 fried eggs with some ham lunch meat (container above yogurt), apples (I already ate one of them before the picture) with pb, clementines, and pineapple.
Lunch: A salad with veggies, grilled chicken and ranch dressing.
Dessert: TJ’s pb cups and skittles (Billy told me he was going to take me for a treat on Saturday and I chose to go to the store and get a ginormous bag of skittles….very wise Janae) and a packet of oatmeal or microwave popcorn is usually eaten at some point.
After school snack aka what I look forward to all day long is cottage cheese with grapes. PS you would need skittles daily at 2 pm too if you taught teenagers all day and don’t drink caffeine.
I may attempt some lifting of weights at some point within the next 6 hours but I am not making any promises.
Ya know how I am a drivers ed teacher? I wanted to share what a student made after we talked about texting and driving. Yes, this is a running blog but I am passionate about being safe on the roads…..no texting and driving!
Thummies is definitely a word….just go with it;)
What’s in your ‘lunch sack’ this week?
Had any scary things happen on your run lately? Have you ever run on a treadmill with ZERO entertainment…no music, no tv, no friends to talk to?
-Never. I always have at least 3 distractions at once.
When was the last time you ran on the treadmill? What is your maximum time or distance on that machine? What about the elliptical?
-As far as the elliptical….30 minutes and I am spent, it hurts my brain to go any longer.
