All of this blizzard talk on the news (ie: twitter) has got me craving a frozen delicious treat! I asked the boy ever so sweetly to bring me a blizzard to work since I was stuck working late. When that didn't work, I attempted to bribe him with highly coveted bribery items. And when that still didn't work, I used brute force. Just kidding. Can you imagine these t-rex arms causing anyone any harm ever? Perhaps after I lift weights twice for the year....then we'll talk....
Anywho, after work it was off to the ol' gym to get in a b.a. tempo run. Now I must mention that my gym is rightnexttoaDQ. And in the 2 years that I've been a member there, I have gone to DQ exactly zero times after a workout. If you know how much I luuuuuuuuurve ice cream, you realize this is quite the feat. Well after tonight, I still have that streak in tact, because I hit up DQ before my run. Yup....that's how I roll.
I wasn't positive what time the store closed and knew I would be running long after 9pm, and realized that if I didn't have a blizzard before I went to bed I would likely die. And cry. Perhaps die whilst crying. Either way, it wouldn't be good. So I hit up the DQ before I hit my gym. Good thing it's a gazillion degrees below zero so my blizzard could stay all nice and frozen in my car waiting for me.
But of course heading to DQ/the gym couldn't be an easy task, it had to be an adventure. YAYZIES! I think I've made it pretty clear that I'm d-u-m-b when it comes to cars. Well surprise surprise I also suck at driving them. If I ever get me lots o' monies, you best believe I'll be paying someone to drive me around. Anywho, while traveling to DQ/gym I got stuck behind a car trying to make a left hand turn into an apartment complex. Sadly, this car was on flat ground just north of a nice little mini-hill I needed to climb. Snowy roads+tires that aren't made for snowy roads+not so great on snow driver Jeri = wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
And wheeeeeeeee = the sound of my tires spinning.
I had to pull some crazy turn around maneuver to back track and get turned around once again, gain some momentum and make my way UP and OVER the little hill. Car success! Ack. How many years til I can afford that driver??
I had a pretty rockin' tempo run, so I guess all was good in the 'hood. I did 5 miles with 3 at tempo (8:06, 8:12, 8:02).
