All of our snow was NEARLY gone. We could see much more ground than snow. But today, we awoke to 3+ inches of white crap. Here’s my newly shoveled front walk:
And here’s the neighbors stretch of sidewalk still unshoveled:
So Rural Girl e-mailed me and canceled our run for tomorrow morning. She’s afraid of the cold (it will be around 0), and I’m afraid of tweaking my knee on those uneven running surfaces. Dang. I was looking forward to that run.
Not doing the run means I’ll be fresher for the 5 hour spin class that a bunch of us are doing tomorrow afternoon. Now I have no excuse for wanting to quit early (which I will WANT to do!). I’ll be back tomorrow night with photos and a story of the long spinning session.
Last night, I worked at some of the nastiness on the bottom of my foot. Here’s what it looked like before I started:
Afterwards, I had peeled a lot off. It looked like I spilled fish food (the “flake” kind) all over the bathroom counter. Gross. And, while peeling some dead skin back, out came some pus from one spot. So apparently I was harboring a unknown blister under some of that. Double gross.
And I’m STILL holding on to hope that I won’t lose either of these toenails:
If I lose either (or both), I owe my wife a long backrub. If I keep them, she owes me. I think I can eek this one out! (no, probably not...)
OK, I think Pharmie and I are off to the Y. We’re going to swim (she’s doing a long swim, I’m doing shorter intervals), and then I think I’ll lift a little. Then we have the big 5 hour spinning date tomorrow. I’ll be back late tomorrow with a report on that hell-fest.
Have a good weekend!
