Hit me with your best shot

Last week I got in a measly seven miles. Bah. This week, I’m shooting for twenty. To amuse myself, I thought I might make this into a sort of game and have you all guess how many miles I’m actually going to run this week. Winner gets bragging rights, because I can't be arsed to provide a real prize at the moment.

My running week is Monday to Sunday so I currently have a big fat zero. I’m planning on running tonight, but I also have an appointment to shove a gigantic burger into my mouth later this evening. Looks like I’ve double-booked myself. Oops. In the interests of fairness I should also inform you that Aunt Flo is visiting me and I’m hopped up on ibuprophen.

Sexy, no?

Have at it in the comments. I’ll let you know who ‘won’ next week.

Before I sign off, I would like to invite you all to join me as I stalk Jess’ blog today for news of baby Norah’s imminent arrival. Best wishes for a speedy delivery, Jess.

And because I’ve just mentioned babies, I’m posting this pic for the sole fact that I think it’s adorable and feel the need to share.

Raging hormones allow me to disregard the fact that this creature has the ability to tear my face off. Nice.

Have a great week, everyone. Catch up with you when I can.

Later gators.

HUH, No prize??? LOL

I'm not even going to begin to speculate, between Aunt Flo, burgers and you posting pictures of baby animals, my whole week has just been thrown off course...LMAO

I'm gonna set the line at 17

Carolina John said...

yea i'm stalking jess too. that baby is going to be huge!

Lauren said...

I'm going to go with 16. Running loses out to a juicy burger every time.

Roisin said...

I'll take the cheetah over an actual human baby any day.

Good luck with hitting 20 miles this week!!! You can do it, even if you have to walk it, you will get it done.

Count of Monte Christo said...

I have all faith in you and will go for 20 Miles.

Never thought I would say this, but a human baby is extremely amazing, even before it has actually arrived.

Jamie said...

I'm going to say the full 20! Good luck getting there!

X-Country2 said...

I'm going 21 becuase you're an over-achiever like that.

Viper said...

Nine miles. Good luck proving me wrong.

Theresa said...

25 miles. Come on, you can do it!

carpeviam said...

Dammit. XC2 beat me to it. I was going to say 21 as well. I guess I'll "one up" her and say 22.

MCM Mama said...

I'm shooting low - 10 miles. Why? Because that's what I'd do if AF was in the house. The rest of my time would be spend communing with chocolate.

Flo is visiting? I you mean Flo Jo, then I'm guessing you do about 65 miles this week. 'Cause Flo Jo is DEAD and all, so you'll probably run like hell to shake her zombie ass. Good luck.

The Laminator said...

Hmmm...between Aunt Flo and the burgers...18 seems like as good a number as any.

BrianFlash said...

Lucky 13.

Robert James Reese said...

I was gonna be inspirational and say you'll for sure hit the 20, but everyone else seems to have done that already. But, I don't want to say anything less than that, so I won't guess. Consider this a non-entry.

I'm sorry, but by the power vested in me (by my current delusionally megalomaniacal state of mind), I have no choice but to shut this illegal gambling site down and take you all in. Many of you will of course be summarily executed, as stipulated for in Teh Secret Section Double-Q/12[sub-niner] provision of Obama's Marxist-Leninist-Trotskyite Socialist Medicine Law (the same part that institutes The Death Panels), which says (and I quote):

"F*ck you, citizen!1! YOU DON"T HAVE THE TOP LEVEL SECURITY CLEARANCE needed to read this provision!1!"

[Wake up, people!1! OBAMA IS GONNA KILL US ALL!1! And you're all wasting time betting on Xenia's mileage for the week?!1? DO something!1! THESE RUMORS AREN'T GONNA SPREAD THEMSELVES!1!]

In conclusion, please report, in an orderly fashion, to the nearest Obama Secret Death Camp. (N.B. The punishment for illegal knowledge of the whereabouts of an Obama Secret Death Camp is ...

(... Wait for it ...

(... LIFE. But if you survive longer than a couple weeks, Obama will come and kill you personally. (Pfffttt! That p*ssy Bush used to have Cheney do all his murders for him!))

Double-bookings - hate it when that happens, because the gigantic burger usually wins, which then lands me with yet another appointment with self-loathing later on.
