The Comeback

Today I ran a slow 3 miles. 

I kept one hand on the treadmill and I took a couple of break to drink.  The gym was a SAUNA!!  Here in Southern California we have been hit by really heavy rain...I mean a lot of water.  Some people had to evacuate their homes...that's how much water..!  I guess they decided to put the heat on at the gym and it was a bad idea and it turned into a Sauna...not easy to run in a sauna when recovering from the FLU...but I did 3 miles and I am happy with that I hope tomorrow will be less shaky on the legs, still feel like Jello!  I stepped on the scale...minus 7 lbs...hopefully I get it back in a few days...

Wow-7 pounds is a lot! Glad you made it through the run. Our gym was a Sauna today too. I had to move inside from an outdoor run because of the snow and had to run on the treadmill in a long sleeve thermal shirt. I about DIED!

Love the ornaments!! Merry Christmas!

Joyeux Noel! (I did take two years of French in college, so I know un peu)
Thanks for linking the 2011 Challenge. I am so in!
We watched "It's a Guy Thing" with Julia Stiles, your recommendations were awesome. Unfortunately, the boys came home early, so we lost our girly movie time.
