Tuesday Afternoon

It was a moody kind of week and I only managed to run on Tuesday afternoon after work. I ran okay but had a sense that something wasn't right; and, in fact, it wasn't. The excess of the weekend had taken some sort of toll on me and I was dehydrated and unable to run much less walk and do anything strenuous. What's that about?
So I've been following Susan's example and eating ice cream. I feel great now. Maybe even put a pound or two on and I couldn't care less. What I would care for is some sunshine. That's what Florida is supposed to have, right? I haven't seen it since last weekend. So dreary. I might as well live in Connecticut for all the good this is.
Well just in case it really is Florida I went out and bought a new 6-seat patio furniture set with umbrella. I'll be firing up the grill sometime really soon. I can just feel it.
Running? Oh. Well, I saw one of my running pals at the bar last night. Does that count? Maybe I'll be a good boy and go out tomorrow for an Easter egg hunt.

I always see those patio sets at the store and think about buying one, but the bugs are so rotten here, I'd need the screened porch version. Maybe I should get one of those for eating icecream in this summer.

At least you don't have snow. Icecream, sounds like a good idea. I think I will go have some now.

I know, this weather is preventing me from getting started on my Florida tan, too... Muggy and rainy and humid but none of the sunshine that this state is famous for. I had an off week, too. Made an ice cream pie myself this weekend and that mitigated things somewhat. Hopefully next week will be better...

Everybody's eating ice cream. It must be in the air. Next week will be better for you. It always is. A long walk with the dogs counts, you know. Seeing your running pal at the bar-- does not!

My favorite ice cream is green tea. Though I haven't had any recently. I know what you mean about the sun - we finally had some this afternoon, so I threw on my running shoes and snuck out of work for a quick 5-miler.
