Still too dark

by Joanne on November 1, 2008

Shane and I went for a 6 1/2 mile run this Sat. morning.  We were out the door by 6Am and the planned route was past the business park up the road that runs parallel to it – obv. forgot its name.  As we passed the Masonic home, the street lights were pretty scant, so we headed toward the post office.  It was quite an obstacle course and not one recommended in the dark.  We had to stay clear of on coming buses and smelly garbage trucks, cars with sleeping drivers… it was nasty out there!  We headed back down Culver and turned toward MVCC from the apartments.  There was a big, white cat in the middle of the pavement and I thought it would definately take off. It didn’t. It got up and did a big, vicious cat stretch – tail right in the air! Neither Shane nor I wanted to mess with that kind of a threat (darned halloween cat!). We ran to the other side of the street.  The run was pretty good, slow and easy until we got to the entrance of MVCC where a pot hole snuck up on me. I twisted my ankle.  Never done that before – I usually just fall flat on my face and walk around with various parts of my body being black and blue.  The ankle seems ok now. I’m blessed with strong ankles and a lot of flexibility so I may have avoided a nasty sprain.  We’ll see by tomorrow.

When we got home, I gave Shane a shower (every 2 weeks we get him squeaky clean), washed his bedding, and put a load of our own laundry in.  We are off to a very productive start.  I intend to make a Gluten Free Chocolate Cake today… if it comes out good, it will be on the Recipe page.  Also, I am making the Apple Crumble Pie so I can upload a pic. to that recipe. Thought I had one but so far no success locating it.

So today’s post run breakfast:  Weekend Omelette.  Make sure to check it out on the recipe page. It certainly is not for the “bird” like eater. It’s more of a “Hungry Mans” (in this case, woman’s) breakfast.  Note the piece of spinach roll?  That was SOOOOOO delish!  Ted bought it yesterday for Steve and Angela’s visit.   Yum!
