I almost feel guilty about my long delay in writing on my blog. All 3 of my blog friends have been on the edge of their seat waiting for me to post something. Relax, I'm blogging at last!
This afternoon I started my run by walking for about 100 meters up the hill. I stopped and pet my friend the horse, and then proceeded to run down the trail to meet my sister. Suddenly I stopped to pee. I didn't think about anyone being around. Why would I? 5:30 pm on a warm Thursday evening, lot's of people on their bikes, hikers, runners. As I knelt down to do my thing, I remember thinking, what a scary sight my white butt would be to anyone coming up behind me. I laughed to myself. I pulled up my shorts and stood up quickly and glanced around me and much to my surprise there was a guy walking up the trail in perfect shot of my bare butt just 3 seconds before. I was mortified! He never gave me eye contact and didn't say a word. I was soooo embarrassed.
I am going back to work after being on medical leave for 4 months with my shoulder injury. It is going to be hard to be back at work. I have enjoyed my time off so much. If I buy a lottery ticket within the next two weeks, AND WIN, then I could avoid going back. Oh, if only I was rich.......I could get use to not working. It would not be a problem for me. I love my job, but I haven't missed it at all.
I have been slowly trying to get my fitness back. Stumbling along the dirt trails wishing my legs didn't feel like they weigh 100 pounds each. I keep telling myself that it is suppose to hurt getting in shape. The only way to get faster and fitter is to push myself. Tomorrow I am going to run 16 miles and hopefully, I will have a decent run. Hopefully, my legs will float and my breathing will be quiet. I hope I will be smiling!
