Uncomfortable

Thankfully my friends took pity on me and didn’t dare me to do anything idiotic on Monday. However, I ended up doing something stupid all on my own. We went for lunch at the burrito joint nearby. All three of us slathered on the tabasco sauce, but I was the only one stupid enough to get a soda with my meal. I was burping up bubbles of fire through my nose for the rest of the afternoon. It was not a pleasant experience. They dubbed me the Dragon. Bastards.

Anyhoo, last night I hit the gym for spin class and yoga. I really need to rethink my Tuesday exercise regimen. Yoga was once again fantastic. Spin however was not. The later evening spin class is taught by this woman with a motor mouth and not too much going on in her noggin. I’m sure she’s a very nice person, but she sucks as a spin instructor. Sadly there’s too big of a time gap between the first evening spin class (with a different instructor) and yoga, so I’m just going to have to schedule a run on Tuesday mornings and attend yoga at night.

Speaking of running, I haven’t done any of that since my crampy run on Saturday. Boy this taper sure is relaxing. I’m so going to bonk during the half marathon on Sunday. At least after this I only have shorter distances races on the horizon.

Before I go, I have to say the comments from Monday’s post were hilarious. To appease Glaven’s need for more kinky videos and pay tribute to Footfeathers’ entertaining story, here’s Part 1 (of 5, I think) of Discovery Channel’s Anatomy of Sex. I believe the part FF was referring to happens between the 1:35 and 3:37 minute marks.

That’s it for me today. Catch you guys later.

I miss tapering. I may just end up taking my Christmas tree down then when I have more energy/inclination.

Yummy soda/tabasco burps. I had taco/beer ones last night. I think I singed some nose hairs.

Lily on the Road said...

OY, tabasco & soda?

Have fun with your taper, at least you'll be over your PMS by the time of the race (I hope), when does Chia arrive?

Heather said...

Enjoy your taper!

BLAAAAARRRRRRGGHH!1! I'm at work and can't watch the kinky sex video yet because one of my co-workers is in the room! But I'll be back to it later, dragon breath, I can assure you.

You know, there are worse ways for those fire-bubbles to emerge from your body. If you're anything like me, you will train your body to purge itself THAT way so you can get back at those wise-@$$ friends.

That is Glaven-approved revenge right there, sister.

p.s. Thanks for the kind words at my blog. best I can do. I don't know how to react to such things!

No, your extended taper means you're going to have large carbohydrate reserves and tons of energy for your race on Saturday. At least I hope so, because that would give me license to slack off a bit.

Sucky spin teachers suck. Good luck this weekend!

Roisin said...

The spin class at my gym meets right around 6 PM, which is generally when I'm down by the weights. And apparently, everyone likes to be there early to get a good seat, so they sit on all the equipment and STARE at people. Please don't do this.

Anywho, good luck this coming weekend with your race! I'll light a candle or six.

Big fat burritos are the BOMB for the week you're having, hormonal-wise.

LAUGHING at your dragon picture!

Ted said...

Oh that just remind me something.... I sure miss five alarm burritos these days. There aren't any good burrito joint around here. Dang it !!! I miss doing the fire spitting these days !

Count of Monte Christo said...

I could do with a bit of dragon-breath to make my colleagues happy :-D. It'll pass, I am sure

Enjoy the race on Sunday! I'm sure you'll rock it.

carpeviam said...

Ugh...the hormonal gods were having their way with me this week as well. Acting atypical! You certainly deserved the burrito. How were its effects during spin class? ;)

MCM Mama said...

A nice taper will just make you run better! Good luck on the race.

Those burps don't sound like a lot of fun...

Blyfinn said...

Dragon. That sounds like you have great friends. I would have gave them each a little fire ball of their own to keep.

The Laminator said...

I should have thought twice before clicking on kinky videos...great, now I'll have balloon sounds in my head for another 24 hours...

Great job on your, ummm, taper!

Marcy said...

HAHAHHAHAAA I remember watching that show awhile back. I love how the scientist dude is all "At first you have to remain still while you're in the insertional position" Could you IMAGINE doing that while the homeboy was watching. Dang!

footfeathers said...

I'm flattered and a bit embarrassed that people (and my dog) know I viewed disguised porn.

There are five parts to this show? Can't wait to see the climax....

I find late night spin class tough. If the instructor doesn't teach a good class, I find it hard to keep my HR up. Like everything else in life, some instructors are good, some not so much.
