The morning gym gods were against me today. I went to bed late and had the alarm set for an early a.m. run. I hit snooze only to convince myself the short 4 mile run needed to get done on the dreadmill. My site I was at doesn't like to do any of their work and has a lot of major issues that only causes me stress. So my short runs keep me sane and when I don't get them done it's not pretty...It was early and there was a tropical depression so no way I was running outside. This brings me to reason #792 on why I hate weekly business trips. Possible tropical depressions that lead to possible hurricanes. You may be asking yourself really how many times does one get in the middle of a tropical depression. Well only three times...but enough to know it would be better if it was zero.
So anyways the gym gods...The same treadmill I had used only 13 hours earlier was broken. I hope my big butt didn't break it but you never know. I think I'll just blame somebody else's big butt ;) Then I thought aww what the heck I'm up so I'll do the stairmaster. No dice, the right foot stepper - broken. So okay, the recumbant stationary bike then....not so much. So at 6:30 I went back to the room to do sit-ups and push-ups. Very exciting I know. Even though I was delayed into Atlanta due to the lovely weather and mechanical issues I still made time for that dreadmill. I ate dinner late and now I can't sleep but I got it done.
I am supposed to run tomorrow but I think I am going to switch the routine up and take the day off b/c of my traveling schedule. I would like to do something rather than nothing but I also value what little sleep I have been getting lately. Friday I am going home to Ohio for my 10 year high school reunion (yikes!) so I'll get an outside run done before I have to sit in a car for 6 hours. I'm sure I'll have plenty to report after this weekend of my crazy family and people from high school I haven't talked to in at least 5 probably even 10 years!
