Some of you had to bear with me and my complaining during my last taper week prior to Portland. This time around, in prep for the Ottawa half this coming Sunday, the taper is a cinch! Now you just have to listen to me complaining about some wicked head cold I have!! It’s ok, could be WAY worse. So far it hasn’t dropped to my lungs and really, it’s forcing me to take it easy this week – I don’t even WANT to run. So my attitude is that I’ll be all better by the weekend and fully rested to rock the race!! 🙂 Right??
Last night, for dinner I had homemade burgers. I don’t enjoy making them – getting my hands all in the raw meet is gross – but it’s always worth it in the end! It was also my first bbq’ing of the season! One question: HOW does my bbq get so dirty over the winter when all it does is sit under its cover below 8 feet of snow??!! I couldn’t even bring myself to take a picture of it before I cleaned it – it was so yucky! I was discussing this with my friend, Brad, yesterday: Sometimes I think I eat burgers just so I can load on condiments. I was missing hot peppers yesterday but otherwise, had a good layering of tastes!
Woke up this morning feeling ROUGH. Felt like my head was going to explode from the pressure. The day was beautiful, but I could barely hold my eyes open while walking Abby.
Abby can be an excellent walker when she has something in her mouth – and it’s even better when she has more than one!
I wish I had this on video. We had gone through the entire walk without a full throw down pose. Then suddenly she sat and wouldn’t move. And then VERY SLOWLY she threw down into Dead Dog Pose. I laughed out loud.
