Weather and the World Cup

Um, I’ve been sitting staring at the computer for a while now trying to think of something interesting to write about, I still haven’t come up with anything so bear with me.  When all else fails, write about the weather right?  Well we’re in the midst of a heat wave over here in the Northeast with highs in the mid 90s, but feeling like 100.  Because of this I will unfortunately be forced back inside a gym and onto a treadmill for the next few days.

Last night on the boring treadmill, I did a 5 minute walking warm-up followed by 3 miles at a .5 incline increasing my pace each mile.  Mile 1 at 6.2 mph, mile 2 at 6.5, and then mile 3 ranging from 6.7-8.0.  Then I walked for a few more minutes to cool down.  It was a good run, I tried to focus on keeping my stride how it is when I run outside and my shoulders relaxed and loose.  I definitely missed my Garmin and the outside.

I’m still feeling a little tenderness on the inside part of my right knee and the back outside area from when I hyperextended it stupidly two weeks ago.  So I think I will take a day off from the workouts tonight.  It doesn’t hurt to walk or run on, just when I press on a certain spot and when I bend my leg all the way so my heel is touching my butt.  I don’t think it’s anything that rest and ice won’t cure.

Dinner last night was burgers I had made with some leftover ground beef and pasta salad.

My burger with a slice of Provolone cheese, lettuce, ketchup, and mayonnaise.

Tri-color Rotini pasta with carrots, cucumber, peppers, cherry tomatoes and Mozzarella cheese.  After dinner, my sister and I sat on the couch watching the horrible programming that makes up summer television, Wipeout and Downfall.  I don’t know why, but I find Wipeout one of the most entertaining shows, I would really love to go there and play on the course.  I think it would be the most fun thing ever.  Downfall is a new trivia game where they drop crap off the side of a building.  I just played along and made fun of how much the contestants didn’t know.

I’m currently listening to the USA/Algeria game on my headphones at work, hopefully I’ll be able to control any cheers or screams.  GO USA!

  1. Good idea to rest and ice today!

    Your burger and pasta salad looks great!! Such a yummy and summery meal!! 🙂

  2. Mmmm…that looks like a great summer dinner! Yum!

  3. ha ha… your first sentence was how I felt when I was staring at my computer this morning. I not only blame the weather for crap workouts and funky moods, I also blame in on my lack of interesting things to write about. I really should apologize for my shit posts that come out from time to time…

  4. I always tell my students that when you have nothing to write about write about nothing and eventually you’ll write about something.

    If that makes any sense. Oh yea and GOAL!!!!!!!

  5. haha I remember in elementary school my teacher used to tell me if I couldnt think of anything to write, then I should write about having nothing to say and it would get the ball rolling. He was right – It always works.

  6. Ugh. Weather. Heat. People can disagree all they want but I can’t WAIT until Summer is OVA.

  7. Your television recaps are so funny. I never know what is on TV, but I know I can check in with your blog to keep me up on pop culture. I am also hiding in a library now to avoid the ricockulous weather. The heat hates me.

  8. It’s deathly hot here too, blah. I’m not looking forward to dreadmill runs when my training starts.

  9. Top Chef tonight….that is exciting! 🙂
