It's still raining.
It's been raining for over a week straight.
and I feel like napping.
Today is a "rest day" (with the exception of the 1 mile I will run for #runstreak")
Matter of fact, Lola and I were on our way to an epic adventure to Chuck E Cheese's when she conked out on the floor. sound asleep.
guess what? I am going to join her.
Let it rain.
1) So the whole nap thing? Yeah--last night I started feeling a bit of a sore throat coming on and woke up with more throat thickness and a touch of sinus congestion.
I hate getting sick and so I think a nap is the best thing I can do right now. Along with drinking copious amounts of fluids and hot, spicy food! Bring on the green tea and jalapenos!!
2) I had my body fat measured yesterday via caliper by Lisa at work. So comparing that measurement to my fancy, schmancy Tanita BC-1000 scale and they were pretty dang close (15.7% via caliper and 17% via scale). I am really surprised that my body fat % was that low--I was expecting a higher number. I am not super pleased with the way the booty looks right now, (especially in that awesome video of me crossing the finish line of the Polarbear Tri two weekend ago-Thanks for that Joe!!) but apparently, it is not all fat. I guess having a size 22 ass at one time will leave things a little less "perky" back there. But Lisa did not seem surprised and said I was actually very lean and the "fat" that I showed her is "skin". Hmmmm. I still wanna drop another 10lbs....
The Ride of Silence...
Tonight we number many but ride as one
In honor of those not with us, friends, mothers, fathers, sisters, sons
With helmets on tight and heads down low,
We ride in silence, cautious and slow
The wheels start spinning in the lead pack
But tonight we ride and no one attacks
The dark sunglasses cover our tears
Remembering those we held so dear
Tonight's ride is to make others aware
The road is there for all to share
To those not with us or by our side,
May God be your partner on your final ride
