Ranting and raving

I've been might complainy lately, I know. But I have just a little more to do. I'll bullet it so the complaints will just fly by like they never happened.
  • It was already 74 degrees and 90% humidity when I left the house at 6:20 this morning.
  • I left the house at 6:20 this morning
  • My ankle is hurting almost like it did last week when I first injured it. Ugh. Also, the little muscles I think of as stability muscles (sides of ankles) are wicked sore.
  • It will be 100 degrees and humid today so I'm not sure how I'm going to run. Not to be a wuss, but I'm not sure that's safe to do and I'd rather not make myself miserable in the name of 3 miles (am I just making excuses?)
Now, some good things:
  • I am pleasantly sore all over my upper body from swimming. I'm kind of savoring the muscle soreness to try and distract from the ankle pain. And it feels oh so good to stretch. Judge me not, coworkers, this funny squirming makes me happy!
  • I have soup today for lunch and it's a new kind I have not had before. I'm in love with soup at lunch because it fits my cheap/easy/filling requirements so nicely.
  • I am looking at treadmills online today. I love shopping.
  • I get to go get prescription sunglasses today. I'm getting a consultation for laser eye surgery and will not be able to wear my contacts for 2 weeks. I have regular glasses but will need sunglasses for running outside
  • 3 work days and then 1 week of vacation!
  • I get to move into my new rental house (sort of) (sort of move in, not sort of a house) on Thursday! Hooray!
See, life is not so bad. I have more positive bullets han negative bullets. Positivity wins!

  1. I feel your pain on the heat and humidity. It is awful and it's true that it's not healthy to run when it is that hot. Swim instead for the amount of time you would have run? I have heard that or you could do water running. I've been told about it but when I've tried I always feel silly so I guess I'm not doing it right!
