Have you ever seen Go, Diego, Go? Why must the children in this show yell when they talk? Oh, and then they encourage the viewers to yell back at them. I mean, freaking Diego even says, “Everybody scream!” Hey, here’s an idea, how about, NO. Let’s not everybody scream.
But T Junior is sick, therefore, I’m basically letting him watch television all day and eat animal crackers for every meal. Hey, it’s what I’d do if I was sick.
Because my treadmill is so loud, I had to turn this Diego clown up to 35 so T Junior could hear it. And there was no way I was running without music, so I had my speakers on, too. Between Kelly Clarkson, the stomping and whirring, and that screaming cartoon child, I’m surprised we’re not all deaf.
Luckily it was an easy day. Yep, “3 easy” on the plan. I walked a half mile to warm up, ran 3 at about a 9:30 pace, and then walked a half mile to cool down.
My left shin and calf are pretty tight, but that usually happens after I run on the treadmill. I ran on that thing two days in a row now. I must do something funky with my stride on there. Luckily, T Junior’s fever seems to be gone and I can get back to some outdoor running — especially since we’ve had sun the last two days. Of course we did…on days I couldn’t even go outside.
Crazy that the cooooold photo below is from six days ago:
What I DO like about this picture is that both feet are off the ground. That’s pretty cool.
What are you doing this weekend? I will be running somewhere new! What do you eat when you are sick? I usually go for toast with lots of butter. Man, I love toast.
Ha, I hear ya on Diego. My son has been sick too so he has been watching too much t.v. Plus trying to get my runs in on the TM (in my garage) has been tricky so I’ve been using the T.v more often. Now he is in to Cailou…almost more annoying than Diego. This weekend I have a 22 miler and lots of laying around. How’s the writing going?? Are you still following your cool writing training plan? 🙂
My husband finally has Saturday day off so I plan on hanging out with him and watching Lord of the Rings…I now we are total dorks but I haven’t seen them in awhile(probably will only get to watch 1 since Miss Bean usually has other plans). I plan on running 3 tomorrow and 7 on Sunday and its supposed to be nice 🙂 If I’m fighting off a cold I eat chicken noodle soup, toast and 7up. This is what I ate when I was younger so it just has stuck with me.
I saw the SUN yesterday! It was a miracle. The TM makes my shins and calves super tight too, I wonder why? I hope T feels better soon so you can leave the house!
Dude, Wonder Pets kick Diego’s ass in the annoyance department. Do NOT ever introduce them into your house. EVER. You will regret it!
