No, not the kind where you throw your arms up in the air and scream as you go barrelling down a hill, though I have felt like doing that many times this week. Everything has been all over the place. I had two dogs then I didn’t have two dogs…I had a crazy unreacheable deadline then I didn’t have a crazy unreachable deadline…I couldn’t run more than 2 miles and then I pulled of a great 7 mile mid-week run. I am really hoping next week is on the boring side of life.

Tomorrow I am going for my first long run in 3 weeks I think? Ugh! My lower back problems were successfully treated by stretching the hips as often as I could (thanks Nat) so I was able to start running again. With my yoga I didn’t think my hips could possibly be tight, but I guess I pushed myself a little too hard in a class or two and instead of opening them up I sent them in reverse. Lesson learned, moving on!

I had been out of the loop just long enough that I knew I didn’t lose any endurance, but my legs were going to be tight trying to get my mileage back up. My plans for tomorrow are 9 miles and since I already did a 7-miler this week it should be a piece of cake. Might be cake made with rocks and cement, but it will still be cake. My run will be part of Nancy’s 8 on the 8th, even though technically it will be 9 on the 9th. But we have been there done that already. 😉

Oh and the olympics start tonight! *commencing happy dance* However *finishes happy dance* I can’t help but have flashbacks to a documentary I saw on Gretel Bergmann when I see some of the ways that the host country is behaving.
