it was a long day. I had to drive to another county to be a 'special prosecutor' [we share prosecutors and judges with our sister county when there is a conflict of interest with a defendant]. turned into a gas station and didn't realize there was a low curb - and I busted open the transmission pan [?] and the fluid leaked everywhere.
to make a long-and-not-particularly-interesting-story short, it's "only" about $300. to get it fixed, my boss took me back to work, and my husband picked me up.
the worst part: I missed running with my running group.
so: to the gym I went at 8:00p to watch The Biggest Loser and run 5 mi.
[ 5.10 miles in 46m 55s // 09m 12s/Mi ]
Comment from one of the contestants to another, whose bottom was getting sore on the bike: don't worry, it goes numb after a while.
what is my butt going to feel like after seven hours on a bike?
I dream about tris and marathons a good 2-3x/week.
Although they aren't reoccuring dreams, they are very similar.
running related dreams: the run has 'obstacles' in it --- running up and down stairs in someone's house on the course, making an omlette in someone's kitchen, finding my way around an unmarked - or not well marked - course. sometimes I'm winning [that's how I should know it's a dream!].
last night I dreamt J and I were running a marathon together. --- but we were running it in an aerobics room - in place. I finished the last mile on a track.
tri related dreams: not having goggles at the start of a race, having to run through the woods/ trails to find my bike -- and my parents and sister and J were there and no one had a camera and they were all leaving to go on a boat ride around the island.
two nights ago I had a dream that I was on the Columbia tri course. I had finished the bike and was ready to go out on the run. we had to have a meeting before going out on a run -- and the run was to the turn around point of the bike course. and for my finish time they used my watch time.
[I do have to say that tri/ running dreams beat the pants off of Bar dreams]
what are your tri/ running dreams?
