Creature of habit here.
So I did the logical thing and immediately changed into my running clothes. Potentially taking a tree limb to the head sounded better than spending a full hour on the treadmill. I know you agree.
The plan was to do the first part of my run outside since I didn't want to stray too far from home. I ran for 35 minutes then took it to the 'mill. That's another mini-mind game I play with myself. Instead of breaking up my workout evenly I often do it this way....knowing I'm more than half way done when I switch to the less favorable activity (even if it's only by 5 minutes) makes it seem less daunting.
I had a big salad for lunch and toiled away on some more work before going to get Emily a little earlier than usual. Now we're cozing up for the night. Flashlights are out and I cleaned out the walk-in closet underneath our staircase in case we need to hunker down inside there later. Hopefully we won't.
I thought I was safe when I moved to Atlanta....no blizzards. hurricanes, tsunamis or earthquakes here. Alas, we've got tornadoes.
Stay safe tonight kiddos.
