I read Amy's description of her half marathon yesterday and just had to wonder. I can only imagine what that type of run must be like. I had a hill workout scheduled this morning and drove to our nearest "hill' which is a causeway. For those not familiar with causeways, they are just bridges that connect the barrier island to the mainland. I don't know how to work the elevation feature on my Garmin, but it wouldn't matter, because if you want a hill workout, it's either bridges or treadmills. We started at a nearby park and then went back and forth over the causeway until we got to 11 miles. Some workouts make you feel like you could conquer the world and some you just survive. We made it painfully through but were all dripping and panting by the end. Gatoraide has never tasted so good!
I treated myself to a southern style chicken biscuit after and I could still eat another (but I won't). Bedroom cleaning was going on when I got home, and tears were flying. We've just finished off the offending room now, with only minor casualties. Now I need to decide if I'm going to be good and go prep the bathroom for painting, or really bad and go finish my quilt top. Decisions.......
