Bad luck + Fatigue = Impromptu Rest Day

Apr 14: Day 61

Today: Run, 5 minutes Z1, 15 minutes Z2, 10 minutes Z3, 15 minutes Z2, 5 minutes Z1

Weight: 173


Many of you who have read this blog over time know I have a mini Aussie.  She is the sweetest thing in the world and I love her to death.  How could you not love this at first sight?

Those were the day I took her home.  Now she is still just 9 months old, and still a puppy.  While she has been really, really good for the most part accidents do happen.  Yesterday, as I was heading to bed early so that I could at least have a chance to get my run done in the morning, I found her on our bed, looking guilty.

And a trail of pee randomly splattered on my sheets.

Since she was there, I sternly told her “NO! BAD!”.  Which of course led to her having another puppy moment, and peeing some more.   On the bed.

I led her to her crate so that she could have a time out and I could clean up (actually that’s an exaggeration.  Being the mostly well trained puppy she is, she was already on her way there herself by the time she was done peeing the second time).  I wasn’t exactly mad, but it was really frustrating because now I wasn’t going to get to bed early after all, I had to clean up the sheets.  In addition, she had hit my pillow so I had to clean and air that out and use a different pillow for sleeping.  Which needless to say, produced yet another toss’n-turn night.

NOT my lucky day.

So I didn’t get up and do the run.  I had thoughts about doing it tonight, but now the bad weather is setting in. If I am EXTREMELY motivated I may do it tonight on the treadmill.

But my inclination is to just call it a rest day and start fresh tomorrow.  What do you all think?

Have a great Friday folks!  Cheers!
