First things first: my precious has died – an instant sudden death. It makes me so sad. I’m taking it to the apple hospital today to get a new hard drive. Let’s hope they can recover what is on the previous hard drive. That really stinks. All of my six children’s pictures are on that precious! I’ll be sharing a computer for a while. A PC – that’s even worse. Poor Susan.
I’ve been a bad blogger/commenter lately and not only because of the death of my precious. Mainly because the identity theft thing has kept me pretty busy. I’ve had to check my credit report several times a day to see if stupid criminals are opening credit in my name. I’m exhausted and had very little sleep worrying so much about this – worrying that it will happen again. Stealing is wrong and I can’t understand why people think it is okay. I’m so tired and I just want this to be over.
Michael took me to the symphony yesterday to take my mind off things. I was so tired I fell asleep about 15 minutes after I sat down. Michael let me sleep until he noticed I was drooling on myself – then he gave me a strong elbow in the side. The second half was much better and I managed to stay awake until the end. After the symphony we headed out to a wonderfully romantic dinner and I discovered that indeed a margarita is not a martini – but three margaritas are certainly a good substitute! I fell hard asleep in the car on the way home, and to Michael’s dismay no amount of elbowing or nudging was going to wake me up.
Wait – this is a running blog so let’s get to the running part! I did manage to get 35 miles in this week – but – 20 miles were done on Monday (a good 20 too), three on Thursday and 12 yesterday morning. I wasn’t happy with my twelve, but I did finish. The twenty on Monday wiped me out and by the time I hit mile 7 yesterday I was all kinds of complaining. My IT band was acting a little strange – not hurting just making some noise to let me know that it was there, my calves were cramping and my attitude could have used a little adjustment. I really have no idea what to expect in San Diego as far as running is concerned – I’m just really excited to meet all the other RBFers.
