I am alone
in Chama. This is the view from our place here..
Hartley got called unexpectedly back to Albuquerque last night. His mom is in the hospital. Doesn't appear to be anything serious (she fell-no broken bones-a slight chance of a blood clot). So here I sit, waiting for the delivery of our new dishwasher, washer and dryer. Oh and heater repair guy. This is all a result of the flood/freeze we had here this spring. It is slowly but surely becoming a newer version of our 10 year old mountain home.
We did hill repeats yesterday about 12 times. I bonked at the beginning. I learned a long time ago to bring gel with me, no matter how short of a run i am doing..So when I got that "feeling"-lightheadedness, feeling like all the blood has left my body then I know-eat a gel. It helped and we had found the steepest hill in Brazos to do the repeats but after one we decided to alter our workout and do less steep hills in the area. These dang suckers are hard!! Run uphill 2 min, then jog down for one min. I am tired today so the only training I am doing is some weights and stretching. Didn't want to ride my bike alone up here-just scares me a little. I have my Sweet dog, Mocha, sho wouldn't hurt a fly but sounds really mean when she barks so i feel safe being at the cabin alone..
