Anyway, as I was sitting in the chair talking to the dental assistant (who is also awesome, I love them all there) I kept having flashes of this post that I read yesterday. I love Josh's blog, but seriously, that is something I didn't need to read right before going to the dentist. Well, it wouldn't have been bad if it was just for a cleaning, but I didn't have any time to prepare for a crown. I've had lots of crowns done (no insurance for most of my 20's and lack of proper teeth hygiene - my own fault), but I've always known that was what I was going to the dentist for. Yesterday I felt like I had no time to mentally prepare.
Anyway, nothing bad happened, although the temporary crown didn't get filed down enough so I can't chew food properly and have to go back this afternoon to get it fixed. Which is actually very frustrating, but not their fault.
After my dentist apt I came home and forced myself to go for a run. I seriously didn't feel like running. I hate running in the heat. But I also don't like waiting till 7 or 8 to run. So I've been going around 5, but that is probably the warmest time to go. When I looked at the weather at 4 it said 72 degrees, at 5, it said 75 degrees. So yeah, not the best idea to go in the evening. (I realize that 70's is about 10-20 degrees lower than most of the country, but my body is acclimated to western WA weather.) Anyway, when it's that hot, I think the sweat wears down the Vaseline I put on to prevent chafing. This is the second time that has happened, both times on my longer late afternoon runs. =(
I ended up going just over 7 miles yesterday. I totally should have and could have done 7.5, but I was feeling hot and tired at 7.2 so I stopped and walked home. Halfway home I was wishing I hadn't stopped and had just finished out the 7.5 miles. Oh well, I still got 7 done. Today I'm thinking I'll do 4.
I have been trying to up my middle of the week mileage because I haven't been able to do long runs on the weekends lately, but this week I will be able to do a long run on Saturday, so I'm going to keep my daily runs shorter than I have been.
A couple weeks ago I posted on my personal page on Facebook (link goes to my running page) that I wanted a new wine glass. I saw it advertised in Runner's World and thought it was awesome. I wasn't serious when I asked who was going to buy it, but apparently my mother-in-law took me seriously because she bought it. It's pretty awesome. =) The below picture is after my run and shower.

as well, I got that probably 10 years ago
and it didn't fit a year ago, and in fact now
fits better than when I bought it. =)
