Feeling funkish today. Could be the weather. Could be poor sleep. It's rainy here today - again. Flood warnings are in effect. Supposed to storm today, which will be kinda cool. Sleep wasn't the best. Kenna crawled into our bed at some point through the night. About 3 I took her back to her bed. Then about 5 Brad brought the dogs into the house b/c it was raining and they were spazzy and not wanting to lay down and let me sleep. We have laminate floors in the house and when they wander around, all I hear is the clicking of their paws on the floor. Drives me batty and keeps me awake.
Today is a run day. But it's raining. I was hoping to run outside today. I was going to run across the bridge and back for two miles... but with lightining in the air, that might be a bad idea. This is the bridge I would be running across. It's a steel truss bridge... and my luck, I'd be caught on the way back by a barge. When barges pass, the bridge swings open to let them pass (it's too low for barges to fit under it. There's quite the interesting history on this bridge. If you want a history lesson, google Government Bridge Rock Island, Illinois history. It's got quite the drama filled history and includes Abraham Lincoln as a lawyer).
Anyhow, I was looking forward to running across the bridge at lunch. Hot guy in the office thinks the lightning storms will be done by then and I could still run it, but not sure if I want to run in the rain - across a bridge with a steel mesh floor. Slippery! But it's so cool to see the river rushing below your feet as you run. Those scared of heights but also seek thrills would love it.
Rough morning with Brady. He's definitely 6 going on 16... eye rolls, disrespectful headshake, talking back. Ugh... I coulda slapped him. Didn't but definitely wanted to.
So, my day sucks thus far. I'm tired. I want to go back to sleep. And Monday's workout has caught up with me. Core is sore. Back muscles especially. I can't believe how weak my back is! I'm sure it's getting better, but still. It's a wonder my back muscles were able to keep me standing upright all these years!
Shit! I just remembered that they close the gate to the Island off of Government Bridge during the day, so unless I run to the other gate, I can't access Government Bridge, which means no running Government Bridge today (or any day) during lunch. *sigh* *hangshead* That sucks.
