"Help! Help! What is happening?"
First the microwave stopped heating. Fortunately we had one just like someone used at college and we were soon good to go again.
Next the dishwasher washed the dishes but didn't dry them. So far we've done nothing. We'll see if it happens again (glass half full) or if we can live with it.
Third the crock pot stopped working. Dinner was supposed to be cooking away when I realized there was no smell. A touch to the side determined there was no heat. The dish is in the oven and a new crock pot will be bought soon. I can't live in the winter without my crock pot.
So that's three and it should stop now.
2. The top of my foot was swollen and hurting so I didn't do my run Monday night. As I thought back I realized I had stopped to loosen my shoelace more than once but it never occurred to me that it would become an injury! So no run Monday or anything, a swim Tuesday instead of a run and home sick Wednesday so nothing again. Is this really what I should be doing a week and a half before a half marathon? I wasn't going to taper because it is just a half on the way to my A race. I won't run again until Sunday and that will be a week. I'll probably swim tomorrow. I'm using this sick day as a way to extend my non running time hoping that will get rid of the top of the foot pain once and for all. I haven't been wearing shoes that tie in a bit so it's hard to tell how it is. It is definitely better but I don't want to bring it rushing back. I could squeeze a run in after my swim lesson on Saturday but I think I'll give it a solid week and then try it again.
3. The other day a friend kept using the words a false tri or some such nonsense to describe a sprint tri. She seemed to think it wasn't a real tri. I tried to compare it to a 5K, 10K etc being real races and not false races but she didn't get it. I had to drop it as it was really irritating me to no end. When I do my tri believe me it will be a REAL race.
