Jezzabel's Pool Parties

7:00am: I felt really refreshed and ready to hit the ground running this morning. I think my little cat nap helped yesterday coupled with getting to bed early. My lungs are still feeling a little tighter than normal though. My mucus seems to be thicker but I am still able to get it up and out. The good news is that it is mostly clear with it being yellow occasionally. I'll just have to keep my eye on it and make sure that the color doesn't get darker or the crap gets harder to get out. I'll also really focus on doing activities this coming week that really make me deep breath. If my foot holds up, I really want to try and run .6 miles straight. I haven't been running consistently for a while now because of my foot. It seems to feel great for a couple days in a row but then feel strained for four days after that. I may have to look into making some changes with my shoes or inserts.

My walk went well this morning though and my foot had little pain. It was perfect weather without a cloud in the sky and a cool breeze. I must also point out the J Bell is becoming a better and better walkee (is that even a word?). She doesn't try to sniff every 3 feet and responds well to a little tug on the leash. She still has a tendency to pee about 8 times, but I'll continue to work with her on that.

Total Distance: 2.1 miles Time: 36'58"

Mandi and I discussed taking the rest of the day off of working out. One, to rest my foot, and two, to rest her knee. After church we headed to Dukin Donuts for our breakfast sandwich and coffee and then up to her place, well, her parents (sorry Nancy) place to lay out by the pool. Nancy, if you are reading this, we saw 3 dead mice and one dead bird in your pool, not sure what you want to do about that. One of the mice looked like he died after taking a dip in your hot tub, he was just chillin on the ledge in between the tub and pool. First thing I'll do is tell Jezzabel to stop inviting her friends over for pool parties when you're not home and you'll have to tell us where to go from there. Anyways, so far it's been a very nice and relaxing Sunday. Later on, we will head to Wrigley Mansion to listen to some of our friends play with their band. There is a chance that we'll walk later, and if we do, I'll add it to the blog.

Total Distance Walked for Day: 2.1 miles
