Wasted weekend

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

I either picked up the flu or food poisoning yesterday, so all my plans for the day went out the window because I felt like crap. On the plus side, I watched a lot of TV and got a lot of extra sleep :)

Molly and I went for a walk yesterday, and a short run this morning. We didn't go too very far either time, since yesterday I felt like death warmed over (I was hoping fresh air and activity would make me feel better) and while I feel much better today, I'm always a little cautious the day after being sick.

The funniest thing happened with Molly yesterday. The Engineer let her out in the backyard and then watched to make sure she did her business. She was out sniffing and then all of a sudden she looked up and then started running full speed, terrified, back and forth alongside the fence. (If it weren't for the fence, she probably would've gotten miles away). The Engineer then heard other dogs bark, and then noticed a kid in another yard pointing at the sky. So he opened the door, and heard a hot air balloon above our house making a loud "WHOOSH!" noise. He then called me over. Once the fence blocked Molly's view, she darted up the stairs and barreled into the house. I'd never seen her in such a hurry to get in the house. We both cracked up, especially since we had no idea where she ran to in the house. We thought she might have run all the way into her kennel downstairs, but apparently she stopped at the top of the stairs. And thus ends another chapter in the story of the wuss dog.

A case of the giggles

Is it sad that the highlight of my day was the 20 minutes or so I ran with Molly before she needed to poop?

Molly is so not excited by all the basketball watching that has been going on here lately. Or maybe she's just mad that I put a t-shirt on her. Who knows?

This will end probably tonight, so I'm going to enjoy my temporary victory!

6 mile warm-up?

Molly and I ran 6 again today, but today was much nicer since it was in the 40s for most of the day and almost all of the snow and ice has melted. Funny thing about Molly, though ... I don't know, I think 6 miles is a decent mid-week distance. But for Molly's it's like it's just a warm-up. At my parents' house over Christmas, they laughed when I'd bring her back from a run and she'd still be bouncing and raring to go. "Aren't you supposed to be tiring her out on these runs?" they'd ask. Yesterday we got back home, and I let her loose in the yard. I got dizzy just watching her run around - she was running laps, but diving into the snow while running around.
