Cold Day

It is cold here in NC, much like the rest of the country. We're colder than some and not even close to as cold as others - and we would never willingly live in those colder places! I'm very glad our car doesn't tell us the temperature because I'm not sure I would have wanted to know this morning as we drove to Masters. We had a great group there and a lot of people joined us for breakfast afterwards.

I'm working from home today which is nice, and I can get a lot of things done without anyone bothering me. I'm huddled upstairs since our downstairs is quite chilly and probably won't warm up too much over the course of the day. Blame it on old doors and cheap windows - it is quite drafty down there. Doesn't seem to bother Tassie, who now has her full winter coat on. She's even sleeping downstairs now which tells me it's a tad bit too warm for her upstairs with us at night.

Training has been light this week, and thanks to Marit for the comment reassuring me that I wasn't being too wimpy after my spill on the bike, also known as "Jerry ran me off the road and no it had nothing to do with the fact I was talking too much and not paying attention" ;) I still can't sleep on my left side because of the hip, but I think I might get lucky tonight. I'm very much a side sleeper so this has been problematic for me getting good sleep (not to mention my predisposition for not being able to fall asleep very easily. Marty says I worry too much. I know!)

Tomorrow we'll probably get a run in at Umstead but I'm not committing to riding outdoors just yet this weekend. Beth runs when it's 2 degrees so I don't know what I'm complaining about.

Bri!! I hope you are all healed up soon and that hip feels better ASAP! I can totally relate about how not being able to fall asleep because of the crash is the worst! I struggled with that a lot when I had an accident - I sleep on my stomach and my ribs just KILLED me and I just couldn't fall asleep on my back!

Anyway - sending healing vibes! Have a great weekend!

Just think about the force that slammed into the ground - horrible! So only naturally you're going to be stiff and sore. Do what you have to do to feel better and to recover - be kind and gentle to yourself AND understanding! (Oh and eat plenty of cake... :)

Yeah - I don't know how Beth or some of the other die hard northerners do it with the cold weather. Bbbrrr! Stay warm and stay indoors! Eeks!!!
