Today was supposed to be week 1, workout 3 of the Couch to 5K plan. When I got home from work today, I discovered that my husband had finished insulating half of the garage and was also washing a load of laundry. I was so overcome with amazement that I forgot I was supposed to go running. We set a date night and had a really nice time together. It's nice to have him back on Friday nights now that football season is over. Too bad that wrestling season has started and I will be losing him again to late practices, frequent meets, and overnight tournaments. :( At least I'll be able to stretch out in bed :)

High point of my day: Husband brought me lunch at school. My students were amazed by the difference in our heights. He's about 6'4" and I'm only 5'2ish on a tall day. Some of my students remembered him from two years ago when he brought me lunch then. I'll post about school another day.

Low point of my day: House smells suspiciously like cat pee when we get home. After letting Bentley outside, I walk into the laundry room to discover Doozer peeing on the carpet in front of her box! The little shit! At least she was peeing in the laundry room and not somewhere else. Only 1 week and 4 days to her declaw/spay operation. Hopefully she calms way down after that.

Hoping to take another run tomorrow after my seminar. I realize I actually need to post about running since that is why I started this blog in the first place :)


  1. Hi there!
    To answer your questions:
    Beachy is about 6 or 7 years old. We rescued him and we think he was probably 1 at that time.

    We don't run with him often because he gets in our way but I'm thinking of trying to train him so he knows the "heel" position. He really does like to go for walks and runs, he just needs to learn to do it properly so he doesn't trip us.

    I'm in California so our winters are pretty mild compared to many other states.

    The tights I bought are the Roadrunner Sports brand and they are the Pro Velocity Ultra Windfront tights. For California winters they are fine but for Illinois winters you may want something with more protection.

    Good luck with your Couch to 5k program! With some consistency progress will be quick.\.
