I am about to finish out the Couch Potato to 5K program for about the 4th time. That means I wog (walk + jog = wog) two and a half miles this week, then finish with three mile runs (or wogs in my case) next week. Their plan only has you running three times a week. On "off" days I walk.
This morning was an off day. Baxter, the Mr., and I headed out at 5:00 AM. We are two blocks from home when I see something dart across the street. Something about the way it ran caught my attention.
Me: Is that a skunk?
Mr.: Noooo... it's a cat. (pause) Nooooo...by gosh, that is a skunk.
We stop, rein in Baxter, and watch the little critter run through the Bed and Breakfast driveway.
Lovely. Just lovely.
And when I'm running by myself, do I pay close enough attention to animals around Tiny Town? No. Am I going to do better? I sure hope so.
Getting sprayed by a skunk would not be my idea of a "reward" for getting my exercise for the day.
And before I forget: Happy Birthday to the Little Big Brother today! His birthday present arrived the other night. His oldest son and my West Point nephew arrived home for summer vacation...finally!! His oldest daughter and summer chem student is due home later this week. Hail. Hail. The gang is almost all here, or it will be by the end of the week!
I'm off to the pool today. In this heat, the water feels pretty good--as long as I drink a lot of water, too!
Stay cool on this toasty Tuesday!
