Yeah so, if you haven’t already noticed, the Garmin Connect site has been down since yesterday and over-privileged athletes near and far have taken to the web to launch a full-scale hissy fit. It’s kind of hilarious.
And that’s just today. The wahs go on and on and on…
This is something I like to call “first world problems.”
I mean, yeah, it was slightly frustrating that I couldn’t drool over my splits yesterday, but then I poured myself a glass of clean drinking water from the sink in my kitchen, took a hot shower, and then sat down on my comfortable couch with my good-looking husband to watch satellite television and drink beer.
So, a little perspective, eh folks? Not that I don’t complain about stupid things all the time, but this one struck me as particularly absurd. (Although I do love that last entry: COOKIES.)
Anyway, about that beer…
Last night I drank Swamp Ape, a nod to the elusive and stinky creature that is apparently Florida’s answer to the sasquatch.
This 10% ABV Imperial/Double IPA is intensely sweet with tropical fruit and incredibly smooth; I looked down after a minute and was surprised to find my glass already half empty. (And don’t give me any of that “oh, Marie, but maybe it’s half full!” crap. A half empty beer means the other half is already inside of me and that is never a bad thing.)
This was Beer #2 of Beer Trade #2, and DBR was nice enough to include a second, bonus Swamp Ape in that shipment. (I was tempted to crack that one open last night too, but regained my composure at the last minute and decided to hold onto it).
Running update: weird foot problem is still a problem. It’s frustrating because it doesn’t hurt while I’m running; just after. Kind of like a hangover. Plus, I’m running faster than ever, so it’s been easy to downplay the agony that proceeds it.
But I have to stop being stupid. I need to increase my flexibility and build strength without aggravating the foot. So today, I’m forgoing my Tuesday run in favor of yoga. Hmph. Seems the hippies finally got something right.
