There were branches down everywhere though; I opened my front door in the morning and all I saw was tree. Weird view. Luckily nothing fell on my car, although branches got some others.
Plus my allergies were in overdrive. I don't know exactly what I'm allergic to but when it rains it's worse, I thought I was going to die, the claritin wasn't helping. I complained to the guys at work, and they were like, "Dammit, stop whining and go to the doctor!" so I am. Have an appointment in like an hour here.
I don't like depending on drugs, especially perscription drugs, to live life. But I can't breathe. Yesterday I was so sick I couldn't even think... I think the whole non-breathing thing effected oxygen to my brain. How did people live before perscription drugs? I asked a friend once how people ever dealt with life without things like reading glasses, and he was like, "Simple, they never learned to read." good point. but you can't not breathe.
I did have an awesome run last night though. Did the five mile with the group in the park, and I won! It's not such a big deal to win on only my second time, but it's something. I started first too, so it meant running by myself the whole time... no one passed me, I didn't get to pass anyone. 56:31 was my time, which beat my last time by like a minute and a half, so go me. I don't think anyone else beat their times, which is why I won... start times are based on personal bests. too hot.
every other run feels really good. saturday I was miserable... had to push myself hard to make 25 minutes, then finally stopped because I was seeing dark spots, which happens. I think the running group helps a lot. When I see people running behind me or at me (it's a down and back, so you see everyone after the turnaround point) I have a sudden urge to look good running, think about posture and form, look strong and run fast.
I did some sprinting in track so I've actually worked on running, which is rare. Distance runners look like hell a lot of the time. The way some of them carry their arms or position their feet is just so counterproductive. I had a similar conversation with a baseball player once... "Some of the guys on your team run like old women, why don't you guys work on running form?" he looked at me like I was nuts. basically implied that they have much more important things to work on. I disagreed.
Alright, to the doctor with me.
