Stress and some runs

Yesterday, following the writing of my entry, I did end up getting in the three miles that I had scheduled.  The rain did not stop so I was trying to decide between running on the treadmill at my home or running on a treadmill at the gym.  Eventually, going home won out because I usually get ridiculously sweaty running, and my own shower always wins over a gym shower where you have to wear flip flops, etc.  So, home I went around 11:15 am.  I got changed into my working out indoors clothes (I had packed and brought to work stuff for running outside, since that was my initial plan) and hit the treadmill.  I am glad to sneak a workout in on it every now and again, and I am glad that J does as well, because we bought it for each other for Valentine's Day last year (we're nerds like that) and it was a fairly pricey gift!

3 miles later, I exited the office (where we keep the treadmill) I was a sweaty wreck and was greeted by a little grey furball (Teek) who hopped the baby gate to go upstairs when she heard me on the treadmill.  I have to be honest, it is kind of nce to be greeted by someone who is grinning and thrilled to see you (and literally jumping up and down!) when you smell and are beat.  Into my own shower I went. 

After working the rest of the day, I went back home and cuddled up on the couch with the dogs.  I was just exhausted from pretty much being up all night the night before.  I had the tv but was mostly just laying there with my eyes closed.  There were leftovers in the fridge from the dinners that I made on Sunday and Monday, and J had already agreed to leftovers, so I was not in a hurry to cook anything.  When J got home, I got up, made us both plates and heated it up in the microwave. 

After we ate our meals, we both took our tired butts up to bed.  J rented a movie, but just for one night, so we needed to get it in!  We watched "30 Minutes or Less" which turned out to be pretty funny.  The cast definitely made that movie. 

Another 3 miles was covered on the treadmill this morning.  Woo hoo!  Up to 9 for the week with a 7 miler coming up on Saturday morning!

Its a stressful day at work.  I definitely feel like I stink at my job right now.
