So the previous couple weeks I wasn’t able to follow my Disney Dopey Challenge (5k, 10k, 13.1, 26.2 in 4 days) training schedule due to some sudden weird ache in my knee. But since I’ve got it rested and taped up, it’s been much better. I was able to jump back into it the past few days, and that makes me happy.
This may change, as the weather here is supposed to go from righteous to growdy. Today it was 80 degrees (American) and sunny. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be in the 30’s and sleet/snowing. What? And then it gets worse. Supposed to get colder and colder and icier and icier. That could mess with my weekend training.
As you can hopefully see, I’m supposed to do 4, 9, 19 on Fri, Sat, Sun. This weekend is also the Dallas Marathon, and they came out today and said that if the roads are too icy, they will cancel it. That’s a bummer. Especially for all those people traveling here and all those who have done months of training. Here’s hoping the weather dude on TV is as accurate as he normally is (not very at all).
Anyway, since I’ve been able to run again this week, I was trying to be smart and take it easy. Take it a little slow. Well, when I got home from one of my runs and plugged the Nike+ GPS TomTom watch into the computer to record my run, it gave me the following message…
Yes, my training device is mocking me. It’s insulting me. It’s taunting me. Why? I can only conclude that it is a big stupid head jerk. I already know I’m running slower than normal…that’s by design you butt-clown!
Ahh well, I’ll get him/her back (somehow) soon enough!!!
How bout you? Ever been insulted by a robot? Do you think we’ll be able to run this weekend? How you doin?
