I’m sorry, I can’t come to the phone right now because my whole body feels like it has been put through a meat grinder. Will someone please bring me 3 Advil, then open my mouth and shove them down my throat for me? Kthxbai.

I met my friend at her house and we decided to just walk/run in her neighborhood. She said it was hilly. She did NOT say it was mountainous.

I didn’t do the 60/90/60 training last night because we walked at a fairly brisk pace (and by fairly brisk, I mean our walking pace was truly faster than my jogging pace) and there was no way I could’ve ‘jogged’ up any of those hills. No way in hell. However, I did run non-stop for a half mile. (so what if it was down hill? It was still a run.)

By the time I went to bed last night, I couldn’t move. Today, I’m actually a lot better. (Thank you, Advil!) I’m going to do a lot of stretching and see if I can find my old Yoga DVD (and thank you Barbara for that suggestion) to see if I can make this pain go away.

Until it does, I’ll be singing “Just put one foot in front of the other…”

I’ve heard over and over that the pain will go away eventually. I’m holding onto that belief like it is the holy grail…

BTW: I’m also blogging over at The Knight Agency blog today about Vampires if you guys wanna go check it out…

    Sorry HZ. You are truly brave. I won’t be venturing out for more than a dog walk for quite a while in my hilly town. Did you want to give you friend a smack? Good luck today. I’m taking the day off from running. Too much pain today. Legs on fire.

    Dude, just remember not to do too much or you’ll set yourself up for failure. Just getting out there is HUGE, just making good eating choices is HUUUUUGE. Don’t kill yerself. I’m proud of you already. I want to be on your team too but I have to find a 5k.

    KJ–nah, don’t want to smack her. LOL I actually feel better now that I’ve been moving around. And as much as I’m kevetching about being sore, the fact is, I feel better. I can handle a few sore muscles. :)

    Savvy–I’m proud of myself and I’m not overdoing it. I just like to moan sometimes. LOL Hurry up and find a race. My friend asked me if I wanted to try the Jingle Bell 5K here in LR which is in December. I may go for it!

    You’re a better woman than me. I am feeling proud of myself for moving but I’d give a small smack for not warning me about those hills. Heck give me a track on day 2. But she’s a smart friend with the warning I’d probably not come out. Give her a hug instead.

    Do you think Ruby would be a good jogging buddy?

    Wombat is a good friend – he’s part NaughtyPants, so Pulls like crazy on the leash. I let him haul me through some of the rougher circuits. Is that cheating?

    Savvy, I’ll admit that looks almost too miserable for words…but at the same time, I think it would be a blast! YAY!!!

    Bunny, Ruby will be a great running buddy, but I’ll have to be up to running the entire time because she doesn’t do ‘walk’

    HZ you are awesome! Congrats on your run (whining or not)! WOOT!

    I’m telling you Advil, the Breakfast of Champions has saved my butt!

    WHAT? is CK unfamiliar with the BEST CHRISTMAS SHOW EVER TO BE CREATED? Santa Claus is Coming to Town is LEGENDARY. Your homework assignment is to watch that movie.

    Young ‘uns today…just don’t know what quality awesome is.

    BEST Christmas show ever to be created? The freaky clay people???
    You are very very strange.

    Strange perhaps, but she’s not wrong. You may be too (snif) young to know what a great TV special is, but that is one of them.

    Connie…it’s actually my 2nd fave of the holiday flicks…the first being THE YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS….

    Uhm I was feeling for HZ’s pain until she claimed that Santa Claus Is Coming to Town was the BEST CHRISTMAS SHOW EVER TO BE CREATED.

    Hellllooooo?!?!! WTF! Everyone, and I mean everyone in the whole freakin’ world knows, KNOWS I tell you, that the BEST CHRISTMAS SHOW EVER TO BE CREATED is A Peanuts’ Christmas. It has the best music ever – thanks Vince Guaraldi. This is my absolute favorite sound track from said show


    except it isn’t Vince Guaraldi Trio, but I love this version.

    All right I still feel bad for your pain.

    The jinglebell 5K is fun. We ought to do it as a group! And wear our Santa hats!!

    Mia–I never really got the PEANUTS thing. I did love it’s a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown…and then I watched it as an adult and went, “hm.” The Year Without a Santa Claus and Santa Claus is coming to Town…I can still watch over and over and over….

    Birdrunner, I think I’m gonna go for it. Why not? Let’s get our Jingle on!

    My favorite of those Rankin-Bass specials is the one with the Heat Miser and the Cold Miser. (I’m Mr. Heat Miser, I’m Mr. Sun. I’m Mr. Green Christmas, I’m Mr. 101. They call me Heat Miser; whatever I touch, seems to melt in my clutch. I’m too much.)

    And now I’ll be singing that all day. My daughter, Ms. Thang, will be thrilled.

    Connie, I’ve been singing it all day…that’s from A Year Without a Santa Claus. BEST HOLIDAY MOVIE EVER!

    Oh my, not understanding A Peanuts Christmas. Hmm, well, I still love you, but….


    I am on the phone with CZ and she just spent $50+ on DVDs. I’ll let her tell you all of the ones bought today.
