Today we had perfect weather here for me. Cold and sunny.
I was supposed to go for 5 miles, my third one this week. First 2 were easy and at HM pace. Today was supposed to be tempo.
Well it was not.
My younger son gave me the gift of a nasty cough.
I have decided to follow the "above the neck is OK" rule for once in hope that I will get better faster. I had some mild pain in the chest last night so I decided it is best to rest.
I hate those days when it is not planned to rest. I feel bad for not going for my run. I know it is 100% silly and that I am not a pro and one 5 miles will not matter. I just cannot help but feeling guilty I guess is the best word to explain it. Anyway...I am hoping that a couple days of rest will allow me to do my long run this weekend. That is more important than a 5 miler I think. I rest on Fridays always because it is a day of working at the school and tomorrow is an important one. It is the annual Jog-A-Thon! I love that day! It is so fun to see all the kids running and my boys both take this very seriously!!
I have a new obsession. It is British. It is brilliant. It is preventing me from doing my work at home and it has made me spend too much time in front of my computer screen but I don't care. This is my new obsession:
I love it.
I always thought it was on pay TV...last week I saw the first season was available on Netflix and I started watching it. I was done with the first season in a couple days and this morning I finished season 2 and even started season 3. I told you it is an obsession. Do you watch it? I love everything about this series. The actors are all excellent...just for Maggie Smith it is worth watching...! Anyway..I highly recommend this! What a treat!
Race pictures from the RnR Pasadena Half Marathon are available! Marathon foto is really fast. Most of mine were up on Monday! It is a shame it cost so much for them..this time mine are pretty good I think.
This is my favorite: On the Colorado Bridge
And a good one at the finish line: arms up no puking!
