8 instead of 10...:( and TV talk


See that red spot on my big toe.  Open cut right by the nail and it hurts.  That is what it looks like today.  Sunday morning it was a lot worst and I had 10 miles on the schedule.
I covered that with some band aid thinking it would all be fine.
I did not make it 1/2 mile before I knew that this was not going to be a fun run.
It was awful, every step was painful...at mile 4 I turned around.
So my long run ended up being just 8.
I thought I would go back out later in the afternoon but I didn't.  I could barely walk for the rest of the day.
I rested Monday and helped at the school.

Today It hurt less.  I triple on the band aid went for 5 miles.  It was a lot better than Sunday.

So I got just one long run before my next half marathon.  I am running the Los Angeles Rock n Roll HM.  It is going to be a Halloween race.  The kids are really looking forward to this one.  I wanted to go alone because they will have to get up so early and I feel bad about that but they want to come see the costumes and the bands.  After that one I will get this :
I won a giveaway on Neon Blonde Runner's blog.  This really cute shirt:
 
I really like it!
 
TV Talk:
Do you watch a lot of TV?
What do you like this fall?
 
I watch some.  A lot less than what I used to though!
My favorite shows right now:
 
1. PARENTHOOD:  If I could watch just one show it would be that one.  It is that good. 
2. REVENGE
3. MODERN FAMILY
 
And in the Reality Category...
The Amazing Race and The Voice (just for the interactions between the coaches it is worth watching!)
 
In all the new ones....well so far I am impressed....I have Nashville on Tivo and it is supposed to be OK...so we will see!

I continue to "work" on my little in home buisiness
I added Digital photo Cards to my list of products.
I made some samples for the Holidays





 

I just saw that I am 12 miles short of 1000 for 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Even with my less than great summer training.

Do you watch The Middle? Almost as good as Modern Family, almost.

I hope your toe feels better soon. Yuck. The Rock Encore medal is awesome....

Hope the toe feels better soon! I am not much of a TV watcher. I used to love watching Desperate Housewives on Sunday night and then it went away. I watch the 4am news and a few shows here and there. I love the Rock Encore medal. Maybe one day I can stay injury free long enough to run more than one Rock and Roll race in one year!

Ouch on the toe! I hope that heals fast!

Ouch... smart for cutting that run a little short! :) I love that your boys want to come to the race and see their momma rock! :)

Cute shirt!

I love fall tv. We are watching Amazing Race which we love (and Survivor). I love Modern Family and the Middle. Also new this year - Go On and Ben and Kate. Thank God for DVR!

I'm sorry about the toe, but wow--1,000 miles! You are awesome!

I haven't forgotten about my card order. My husband was out of town last week and now we're getting ready to go to Detroit so I still haven't had time to go through my photos--but I will next week.

I will say hi to Canada for you! The Detroit Half goes into your homeland.

Ouch!! I hope that heals quickly.

I'm running the RnR too - I think I'm stalking you :-) I was hoping to get the Heavy Medal thing too, but I had to back out of the San Diego race, bummer.

Congrats on 1000 miles! Awesome!

I have a full marathon this weekend, talk about being behind in training. It seems like it's always something isn't it!? But yet we forge ahead for those pretty medals! And I love that one with the guitars. I'll be anxious to see how big it is. I use to never care about medals or what they looked like but for some reason now I do. Probably has something to do with race cost :)

I was going to tell you, I'm going to be taking photos of all my kids in the next week or so so maybe I can send you the images and you can make me some Christmas cards!? I would MUCH rather send my business to you than a large company. I'll shoot you an email after I take them and then we can go from there if that's ok with you!? :)

Hope your toes feels better soon!

Great job with your milage so far this year. I have been watching Revenge, The AMazing race, Survivor, and Greys Anatomy.
