I am somewhat emotionally stunted when it comes to everyday life. I cry maybe once a year over upsetting things in my life. Instead I just keep it all in and let things build up. And sometimes I get angry instead of sad when sadness is the appropriate emotion for a given situation. Ask my husband. He'll back me up on this confession.
However, when something moves me, as in touches my spirit, my soul, I get weepy. This kind of emotional overload overtook me twice while on the elliptical today (because it is Grace's turn to be home sick). One of the times was when I watched this:
Now that I've made you cry, here are a few funny things to make you smile:
I should hang this on my mirror. And I should also resist the temptation to send it to certain other people I know on a regular basis.
And because, believe it or not, this started out as a running blog and I am still running on a regular basis, I figure I'll throw in a little about running.
Saturday I ran with Megan. I really like Megan. And the miles we run together really fly by. We ran eight miles together and then I ran the five miles home from our meeting point (where Scott and the girls dropped me off because they are awesome like that). I felt really good the entire run. In fact, it was one of my best longer runs in quite a while. I felt strong and nothing hurt.
Then Sunday morning when I got out of bed, I almost had to sit back down because my right calf hurt so much. It was sore all day. I stretched and rubbed it throughout the day, and it loosened up a bit. This morning it was feeling even better, so I did the elliptical for 35 minutes and then did a short 25 minutes on the treadmill. It is still sore but didn't hurt at all while I was running.
I have no idea what caused it to hurt. Has this ever happened to any of you?
I'll be babying it and really paying attention to how it feels this week because marathon training starts next month, and staying injury free is my #1 goal!!
