No joke, over the weekend I sent a message to the breeder I got Abby from 8.5 years ago and asked her if it was too late to return her. And I was part serious.
I left her for TEN MINUTES yesterday morning…TEN MINUTES. And when I came back, she met me on the stairs, looking guilty, with feathers coming out of her mouth. I was confused. The only place I have feathers in my house is my down duvet…
While talking to my mom yesterday, she said, “You know Jane, while you were in Africa, Abby had your father’s undivided attention. She had her own lazy-boy (seriously) and knew that anytime she wanted, she could get belly rubs and treats. She’s back in reality now and doesn’t like it”.
Yes, apparently living with me is like being in a concentration camp.
After some time apart, we reconciled last night and had some cuddles in front of the TV. But I have a feeling this issue we’re having is far from over…
Last Thursday night, TG (The Giant) was over with Dolly. The two furballs follow me EVERYWHERE I go in the house. This is them…as I’m coming out of the bathroom! Really? I was gone 2 minutes!!
Last week was our first real week back on the track. And our team is KILLER big & good this year!
I have a race in 2 weeks in New Orleans…will cross off Louisiana from my state list…but in terms of performance, it will strictly be treated as a long slow run…because that is how it’s going to turn out. lol
I have signed up for the Mississauga half marathon in May – this is the race that I PR’d on 2 years ago (breaking a PR I had set something like 7 years earlier)…so I’m going back again with the hopes of PR’ing again…but I HAVE WORK TO DO!!!
And I’m ready to do it. This is my overall weekly schedule for training. Will be training by heart rate again – hence the zones. And, although not listed but a vital part, this training plan includes at least 8 hours of sleep per night. I know this is crucial for me.
Meanwhile…Abby is planning the next non-food item she is going to eat in my house.
