Imprisonment, Track Thursday and Queen Abby.

Serious, folks, this was and continues to be an emergency.

This morning, when I got back from walking Abby, I found myself completely imprisoned. In my parka.

The zipper broke…while done up. And I could NOT get out of it. I actually panicked a bit. I finally managed to pull the coat up over my head. Ok, so the emergency of being trapped is over…but NOW I DON’T HAVE A PARKA AND I LIVE IN CANADA!!!

I will be heading to my tailor VERY soon and begging him to fix it right away.

Wednesday night I went out for drinks with a friend and we snagged this awesome table in this sort of private room that we had all to ourselves.

This is a great little spot in the summer because there is this huge window that they open…in the winter, it’s still a nice room because of its privacy, but that great big window is VERY drafty…

And I was lucky that Greg let me have the heater to myself!! Such a gentleman!! (LOL – or not a cold-weather wuss like myself!!)

Guess what I did last night?

Yup, last night was track with this being the result…

It has snowed a few times over the last few days – which I love…as does this one:

And each time we go past this hill she INSISTS on running up to the top and surveyingΒ her the land!

Happy Friday!!

      Oh, Jen, honey, I will NEVER understand your aversion to coats. My issue was that I was trapped and needed to run and shower still!! LOL AND, that my coat was busted in the middle of winter! YOU, are just weird with your aversion! LOL *hugs*!!!!

    Great post! But just some advice which I’m sure you’re well aware of, but I want to pass on anyway.

    The side stitch is from leaning forward in your runs and not keeping your shoulders back to straighten your posture so the lower parts of your lungs can expand when you breathe.

    I used to get the pains in my sides until I learned why they were happening. Even the slightest forward lean in your sprints and distance runs can force the rib cage to press into the core muscles which constricts the lower part of the lungs from being able to expand…hence, you get side aches. I’m sure your posture isn’t something you’re really thinking about while running, but your coach should be…and him just saying…”suck it up and work through the pain” kinda irritates me because when I coach runners, I’m always correcting their postures to help with their breathing and lessen the side cramps when they run. Next time you’re out there on the track, think about the position of your shoulders and whether or not you tend to lean forward in your runs…if you do, try keeping your chin up and straighten up your torso and it’ll relieve pressure on your core. πŸ˜‰

    It’ll be weird the first few times you do it, but trust me…once you get used to it and the lower lungs can expand freely, you’ll never get side cramps again…ever! πŸ™‚

      Lol. Thanks. My coach had more to say – but no one needs to read that, the suck it up part was him being funny! The stitch was because I was out really late the night before and drinking beer…and so yes, I wasn’t in my best form. Side stitches are not something I get often.
