2 Times in One Year

My 2nd time this year...I made it to the gym before work.  I really didn't think it was going to happen.

The alarm went off at 445.  McMenamin was sleeping soundly in the curl in the back of my knees.  Snooze.  D's alarm went off about 5 minutes later.  McM got up and ran around like he always does (this is D's normal time to get up). I remembered D moved his schedule so he could run in the morning. I concluded I was not a morning person and hit the pillow, but not before I reset the alarm. D got ready and left.  I closed my eyes.

The guilt settled in.  I closed them tighter.  McMenamin came back upstairs and made out with D's pillow.  The clock was now reading 520.  I was going to get up at 539 (that's where it landed, and I was not going to get all anal on the alarm).  I thought a little more about meetings at work. I thought I was already awake. Could I make my 930 meeting?  I got up, turned off the alarm, and got ready for the gym.

I think I shocked D by showing up.  I got in a .5 mile warmup, and did the 4.5 miler at 4.9mph.  I really pushed the last 1.5 miles. My legs are still talking to me about it.  I slowly did my .5 mile cooldown.  Then I came home.  The bed looked nice, but since it was 730 and I usually leave for work at 705, I knew I should get ready.  McMenamin was so happy I was home.  Scuttlebutt just laid in his crate looking at me, like "Why are you here?"  I left at 8. Managed to be at work by 905.

I ran 3 miles Saturday. Nothing exciting about it.  D and I did find a bar with a dog park attached.  I think McMenamin and Scuttlebutt really liked it.

Having a Great Time

So Happy

Don't worry McMenamin. I still will show you love, too.
