Running Chick in Hair, Stupid stuff, Training

I salvaged a lackluster running week with a 6.5 miler this morning and then another 2.5 with Josh for a 9 mile day. It was nice and cool today, unlike earlier in the week. I swear, I almost died on Monday when I ran down to the Nara Trail to meet Josh. It.Was.HOT. Once we hit the trail, it was cooler, but I was feeling the effects of that run for hours afterward. Yuck. I ended up with just over 17 mile this week, which was pretty amazing since mostly all I did was sit around soaking up the a/c in my house. I hate to say this, but I am ready for this heat wave to be over.
Here’s the excitement that happened in the last week in RC world.
We worked at the Copperman Triathlon in Copper Harbor last Saturday. Our location was called “Fake Lake”, which I never knew existed until Saturday. Here’s a little video of our station by way of Josh and his new video camera thinger.
On the way back home, an obligatory stop at the Jampot for some goodies.
More narcissism from yours truly.
We stopped at an estate sale in Lake Linden and found that we’d parked next to an old Bosch Brewing Company building.
Then we came to a screeching halt by this old International truck which Josh said I needed to take a picture of.
The Cool Thing of the Week was a tie between this fancy new burr grinder that Josh got me. I think he got tired of hearing me bitch about my old Mr. Coffee grinder and not do anything about it. Note that my coffee now lives in a hopper. A hopper. Someone get the Intervention folks after me.
…and this fancy new bracelet that Josh also got me. It’s earthy and pretty, just how I like my jewels.
Dumb Thing of the Week is me having to write Josh’s c25k intervals on my arm because I simply cannot remember them no matter what. CRS, I has it.
WTF of the Week. At least it was really early so there wasn’t much traffic out to be killed by the falling load.
I'm Old Moment of the Week.
Most Visited Place of the
Yums of the Week. Salmon on the grill and sautéed mushrooms and Vidalia onions with thyme.

Since I'm a gimp, I have nothing newsworthy to report on the running front. But, I did get my hair did! Two hours in the chair and and way too much money later, here's my new color. Actually, colors because I think there's three different ones in there. I think my stylist did pretty well, considering that I give her no input whatsoever other than to tell her to make my hair not look like crap anymore.On the running front, my calf seems to be doing pretty well. I'm not sure if it wasn't as bad of an injury as I initially thought (although not being able to walk certainly had me assuming the worst), or maybe I just took care of it the right way for once (12 hours of continual icing and Ibuprofen, (and booze) followed by two days of light stretching), but in any event, it's feeling good enough to attempt a run on the treadmill tomorrow. I hope it doesn't fall off. That would be unpleasant.
