Strikes Again!

Good afternoon – I’m posting during my lunch today.  A morning post just did not happen. I’ve had kind of a stressful past two days, so I’m feeling a little grumpy and I know that’s not the best time to be posting on my blog, but what can ya do?

Anyhoo – for a quick recap of yesterday I’ll start off with my delicious oatmeal breakfast yumminess with banana and peanut butter.

Doesn’t that just look divine?

My workday was super busy yesterday, so I squeezed my lunch in kind of late in the day. I had the leftover chicken dish from dinner the night before. Yum!

Good lord I hate florescent lighting. Afternoon snacks, an unphotographed Chobani yogurt and a new flavor of KIND bar.

The cranberry almond was really good, but a little bit sticky.

Towards the end of the day, my work started to spiral out of control. I had a lot to work on and it needed to be done asap. I ended up getting out of work a little bit late and then was so upset when I walked outside and big fat raindrops landed on my head. I check every morning and the forecast was clear. If it even hints at a chance of rain I bring gym gear with me to work. totally screwed me yesterday. So I went home tired from work, stressed and then upset by the rain. Needless to say, I didn’t make it to the gym for any kind of run. GRR!

I was starving when I walked in the house, so I made a pre-dinner snack of Triscuits with melted cheese and then I spooned a little salsa on them. It’s kind of like eating nachos.

I also poured myself a glass of much-needed wine. After my pre-dinner snack, I made a big salad for dinner with romaine lettuce, carrots, cherry tomatoes, cheddar cheese, raisins and walnuts. I drizzled balsamic vinegar on-top.


Oh but my struggles do not end there my friends. I happened to glance outside a little while ago and see that it looks eerily dark. Mind you, I checked this morning as well before leaving work, and then around 10:00 a.m. and my local forecast was all clear. Plus – do you think I learned my lesson and brought gym clothes just in case – Nope!

I just checked the website again and now there are thunderstorms forecasted for on and off between 3-6 and then 9:00 p.m. and on! How, why, what – that’s not fair!! Theoretically, I can try to squeeze my run in between 6-9, but I know in an hour it’s probably going to tell me torrential downpours for the whole night. Darn you – I am shaking my angry fist at you!!

Lastly – I’m running the More Magazine Half Marathon this Sunday and just guess what has to say about the forecast…You got it – RAIN!! Not even showers or drizzle – solid Rain! Should be fun. I was also planning on tacking on some extra mileage at the end for my last 20+ run – looks like it’s going to be a wet one. 😦

  3. did it to me too yesterday!! WTF. I was so shocked to go into the rain because I read that website religiously every morning. Good luck at the half, you will be awesome no matter what the weather.

  4. I’ll think nice, dry thoughts for you this Sunday! I checked this morning and ended up getting caught in those thunderstorms on my jog home from work at 3pm. I couldn’t believe it!

  5. It’s funny how the weather men can get it wrong so often. And it’s always when you need them to be right. Sorry your run got thrown off. You’ll manage to make it up though. 🙂

  6. Well hopefully’s prediction for Sunday is about as accurate as the morning forecasts the past couple days. 😉

    Weather is such a pain in the butt though….. but it is good to get some rainy runs in too…. never know what weather will show up on race day!

  7. Aw, sorry about the weather! :/
    Those strawberries do look delicious!

  8. Good luck on the half! I actually like running in the rain.. as long as it isn’t a downpour! I hope that your day/weekend is less stressful and that things have calmed down!
