Be careful what you wish for because those wishing gods can really have a twisted sense of humor sometimes. We have really gotten a lot rain this week and not only does that make me not want to run but it also means I will have incredibly busy days at work because we have to test all our waste water and it really adds up when mother nature decides to drop a ton of it on us. Anyway all week I have been complaining about the rain... actually I enjoyed running in that light summer rain but this cold, windy, stinging rain is just annoying. I got up one morning at it was raining and cold and I finally said, "I wish it would stop raining." Well guess what? It stopped raining and started snowing. Yeah you heard that right... one of the worst four letter words I can come up with at the beginning of October, SNOW. Welcome to Northern Wisconsin. The leaves aren't even off the trees yet and I had to run in snow. It got a little slick and I took a good slide on my stairs but at least I didn't fall. It is all gone already but I will be very careful about sending out wishes in the near future.
I also realized I forgot to account for the Hot 100 goals on weigh-in day so I will do it now:
Goal #1: Be 200 pounds or less by the end of the year (that is a 2 pound a week loss). Still doing good on that one... only 17.6 pounds to go. Although the idea of holiday meals are starting to scare me a little.
Goal #2: Be able to run 10K. I am doing pretty good with the four miles and my pace has improved (back to the 3.5 mile pace) so this week I want to up that another 1/2 mile.
