Three Things Thursday

1.  I’ve still got the sickies.  On Tuesday I thought I was on the road to recovery and I was feeling much better so I went to our weekly group track workout and busted out a great workout.  And when I went to bed that night I was still feeling better than I was on Sunday or Monday nights.  Then I woke up Wednesday and BAM!  Full blown sickies all over again.  Boo.  I am feeling better today than I was yesterday but I’m going to skip today’s run and wait until tomorrow to see how I’m feeling.  I’d rather skip today & tomorrow with the hopes of feeling better for my long run on Saturday.

Tuesday Track workout:  10x 40 second sprints with 2:20 recovery.  Sprint paces = 7:34, 7:32, 8:01, 7:06, 7:30, 6:28, 6:30, 6:51, 6:28, 5:54.  I thought I sweated out the sickies; I was wrong.

2.  I didn’t post a WIAW post yesterday because all my photos needed to be downloaded and edited and I just didn’t have the energy to sit at my computer to do it.  I spent the day laying on the couch, cuddling with the puppy & the kitty, watching hours upon hours of shows on my DVR and then a movie on TBS.  And eating.  Lots and lots of snacking when I’ve got the sickies

3.  There was a big reddish-brown spider in the shower with me this morning.  Eeekkk!  He was hanging out on my wash cloth and luckily I noticed him then proceeded to throw the wash cloth down and jump out of the shower until I could wash the spider down the drain.  I’m terrified of spiders … so needless to say I had a quick shower after that because I couldn’t keep my eyes off the drain, knowing that the spider was going to crawl back up at any minute, and I felt like I had spiders crawling all over me.  Not exactly the peaceful, long, hot shower I was hoping for. 


Are you afraid of spiders?

Holy crap. That is TERRIFYING. I don't know that I'd be able to shower either. I'd have to draino the hell out of my drain until I was satisfied he was disintegrated by the chemicals. Extreme? No.

Feel better!

Oh no, sorry you're sicky!
Spiders, hmm. I wouldn't say that I'm afraid of them but I wouldn't INVITE one to shower with me!

spiders are so creepy aren't they ;) I am sorry you're still not feeling well and on top of that you had a crappy shower. I hope you feel better xoxoxo

I hate snakes but in some ways spiders would be worse because they get more places. If a snake was ever in the shower with me I would have a heart attack.

Feel better.

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I loved that story too--it's so true. Feel free to share!

Spiders don't scare me-- I'm bigger than they are. I just step on them. :)

Oh--feel better soon!

spiders don't bother me unless they are the big hairy ones. Snakes, on the other hand, terrify me. Can't even look at pictures of them.

Hope you are feeling better soon, BCWCC! xoxo
