Random Friday...

...surprisingly, I haven't done a random post in awhile so here goes!

*Finishing up week 5 of my half training, things are getting easier and hardier at the same time. After one official month of training, the aches and pains are finally setting in. My shins have been killing me this week, thankfully only when I run and my right hip/right buttocks is KILLING me!!! Ugh...I've stretched and stretched and stretched and no relief. I'm going to try a foam roller later today.

*Monday night, I had an awesome 7 mile run (and then all the above aches and pains started). Matt and I went to Fleet Feet to buy me some new running shoes. You know for running to be a sport that requires just you moving your legs and running, all the stuff you can buy for it really adds up! So far I've only spent money on the new shoes and race fees. Anyways, since Matt has to be as cool as me and I set the bar high, he *had* to get a new pair of shoes too-you know for that one 5K a year he runs in. *insert eye roll* I don't know about your husbands but my husband likes to think he knows EVERYTHING about ANYTHING and in actuality, he doesn't. The lady at the store was really nice and didn't call him out on anything even when he told her he currently ran in Sketchers (FYI-he doesn't and I had to explain to him what Sketchers were), he wanted to run the 5K in 20 minutes (umm...yeah right!) and then listen to me maybe freak out when he spelled my name wrong (really? almost two years of marriage, going on 4 years together and you STILL can't spell my name right!?!). Anyways, it made for a good office story the next day. Adie and I have been calling them Matt's princess shoes.

*Wednesday, I got in my car to go to work and my car wouldn't reverse. Yeah...turns out it's something in my transmission so now my car's in the shop for a week and I'm having to foot a $3,000 car bill. Really? If it's not one thing with our cars, it's another! Matt told me that night that he was proud of me for not freaking out about it. OH! And Linda (best man's mom and our good friend) is letting me borrow her Sebring convertible while my car is in the shop! SWEET!!! Top down ladies and I'm cruisin' the town! Funny, Matt and I carpooled for over a month and the one week my car's in the shop, we both work this weekend, opposite hours and since his truck is a manual, carpooling/sharing isn't an option.

*Wednesday after we dropped my car off, I missed my walking date with Sarah so I decided to go for a run around the neighborhood (bad run from the bad day not to mention hips and shins screaming at me). I was sitting in the backyard pulling on my shoes talking to Matt while both dogs were in my face asking if they could go with me. I look down at Shadow's belly and freak out, "AH!!! There's a giant tick on him!!!" Shad and I walk down to the garden and he rolls on his back for us to look at it, I look again, "Oops! Sorry, it's just his nipple." My bad!

Okay, hope everyone has a great weekend! I'll be working all weekend so feel free to drop me an email or leave me a comment to keep me entertained. Tonight is a hot date with my sis and niece...H and I have to sneak off to make her Mother's Day gift! If we finish it, I'll post about it next week. Bye!

Yeah, there is nothing better than seeing a big ugly tick on your dog--or finding one that crawled off the dog and onto a little kid.

Enjoy your weekend.

Your post cracked me up. I am a fellow "runner" (ok I dabble) and can only imagine what the scene was like in Fleet Feet as your hubby claimed to be a runner...who runs in sketchers! Hilarious! Boys are so silly. A+ for effort! :) Ticks on dogs freak me out...I'm constantly checking my pup for them as we take lots of walks on the trail. Ugh...gross! Happy Friday!

Ugh I was JUST talking to my mom about all the ticks they've already found on their dog. I'm scared to bring Monte up there!

Adie said...

Gross about the tick er nipple! ;) Skechers oh geez! Good thing he now has princess shoes! haha!!

Krystie said...

yikes, what a week! I'm glad it wasn't actually a tick on the pup. I would have freaked!

Oh, dang. I laughed my butt off about running in Sketchers. That's too funny! Guys can be such interesting creatures, eh?! ;)
