It decided to get cold last night. Our apartment is cold, my office is cold (the air conditioner is stuck on, but at least I have a space heater in here today), outside is cold. Seriously. The weather channel says it "feels like" 44 and we have a frost advisory for tonight. And it was 70 last weekend! Can't we ease into this???
I did get out and run this morning. 5mi with 4x800. I did the first and third 800s at 8 min/mile pace and the second and fourth at 7:50 min/mile pace. Not great because I was aiming for 7:30 min/mile. Problem is that I had no idea what that was supposed to feel like. I ran fast but not hard so I guess next time I have to go harder so I'm actually struggling at the end, not just wishing I could stop. I will also put the blame on the wind because it was really going.
So how did I give my phone a bath in my purse? I was carrying two plates of cookies into our leader meeting at youth group, and I put my water bottle in my purse so I'd have my hands free. What I didn't think about was that there's a tiny hole in the top of the bottle so air can come in. Well, that means water can also go out, which it did. I didn't figure that out until water was running down my leg. At that point I dumped the contents of my purse all over the floor. So wet + smacking into the floor = demise of the phone.
We did get new phones yesterday, and I have the same number so anyone who reads this who knew I had their number before... I don't any more so if you could e-mail me with it I'd be super appreciative. (Thanks to Jessica who already did). We had our phones for 2.5 years so we were due for an upgrade and got a pretty good rebate offer. Since we don't internet or text with our phones we were able to get a pretty cheap model. The guy was kind of pushy on the extra features but not too bad. The only thing that was a little over the top was trying to persuade us to get a second car charger when we only have one car. Oh well. My ring tone is called Whistling Wizard. That makes it all worthwhile.
