Last week I was on a roll....this week I ground to a dead halt. Monday was supposed to be Fit Ball. I've been in a course these past three days and the course doesn't finish until 4:30. Of course when you are on a course that is when crises at work happen. Needless to say I didn't get out of the office early enough to rush home and then rush to Fit Ball. It was provincial election day on Monday so I was going to go vote, then go for a run. Except as I was leaving the office I got a frantic call from my bro to help look after my gorgeous niece. How could I say no to that? So I headed over after doing my civic duty and spent some quality time with Avery. We hung out and watched Project Runway and Girlicious (all totally appropriate shows for child development), noshed on pizza and played.
Tuesday...well, there was no run over lunch because said crises still weren't solved, plus we don't get a long enough lunch break to fit in a run even if I weren't fighting fires. When I left the office I wasn't really up for running, all I wanted to do was unwind. My solution was a little retail therapy....does that count for cross training? I attempted to find some totally running inappropriate shoes with no luck but I did walk out with two blazers from Benetton well marked down from a massive sale.
As for tonight? Well, no running tonight either. Neil and I are off to a local wine store for a port tasting and who is going to want to run after that? Hopefully tomorrow I'll get back at it since my course will be over and I can try to run over lunch...
