Rainy weather always gets me a little stir-crazy. Indoor time can be a novelty...it's a great excuse for catching up on DVDs and snuggling under a doona but after a few hours, I'm ready to move on.
Yesterday I decided I'd had enough of the freezing, rainy weather stopping my daily jog so I took on Mother Nature during a break in the downfalls. Never a good plan, I should know by now that I am no match for Mother Nature.
I failed to take into consideration the enormous lentil burger I had inhaled for lunch and about half way through my run I had a killer stitch and had to stop to walk. Of course, at that point it started to pour with rain so I was left pathetically half walking, half running, looking like a drowned rat!
Today I am feeling a cold coming on and I am reminded not to mess with Mother Nature.
So I am daydreaming about suddenly being transported into the lovely court yard above with a handful of girlfriends, some cruisy tunes and a few pitchers of margaritas. Mmmmm.
