So on Saturday, even-though it was snowing 1 to 2 inches outside, I decided I was going to try to take my crazy ass out for a 2 hour trail run after my morning swim session.
So annoyance #1, I get there and the gates are closed, (okay, maybe I would probably be the only crazy one out there that day). But c'mon Mr. Park Ranger what is a little snow on top of the 4 to 8 inches a couple of days before.. I need to run on the trails!!!
treadmill. I was so unprepared for this, so I ran on the treadmill with my Gore-Tex trail shoes and no music to keep me company.
Like most of you, when I'm there at the gym, I'm there to workout. This younger lady starts running on the treadmill next to me. Magazine, Ipod, phone, and water bottle. So she starts running, but then at a specific time she jumps off the rolling treadmill, stops, turns her magazine page, takes a swig of water, changes the treadmill speed settings, and starts again. So after awhile this became annoyance #2, so I started to time this rest/interval event. So YES, every 90 seconds she would do this. Did I mention this was so annoying. I really wanted to say something, seriously what was the point of all this.
Another annoying thing (will call it #3) that baffles me is why people go into the pool by diving in, don't they know it is only 4 feet deep. They dive in and get out, usually in a lane where someone else is swimming in. Yes, this happened to me this morning during my swim session.
So besides the annoyance factor, it was an "okay" running weekend. Even-though it was a recovery week, I was only able to sneak in 7 miles on the treadmill on Saturday and another 15 miles on Sunday on the road. A little short of my total plan, but my legs where feeling kinda of tired this weekend.
But I'm glad I did get to rest a little bit, take my daughter sledding for the 1st time before the snow disappears by this weekend .
Also take her to the money pit I call "Chuckie Cheesier".
I can only hope when my daughter becomes a teenager
she won't think I'm not so annoying. I can only hope.
