you're stepping on my foot

i've had a HELLISH two days of commuting and sometimes i really hate having to depend on public transportation... last night, metro shutdown 2 stops from where i get off because of an 'emergency situation', so trains were offloaded and people were told they can take a shuttle bus... right! i never saw one in the 30 mins. i waited so thankfully, eric wasn't too far from where i was stranded and he came to get me (i treated him to dinner at baja)... then this morning, there was a fire in one of the tunnels so trains were sharing a track and things were delayed yet again - it took me almost 2 hours when it should only take me 45 minutes... ugh, i wish i lived closer so i could drive sometimes - at least i could listen to the radio... :-o

now onto bigger and better things... i have decided to start the C25K program when i get the go-ahead from my doctor (t-minus 12 days) - so many of you are doing it so i thought it would be a great way to get back into jogging... so if you're unfamiliar with the program, here's where you can find out more information --> www.coolrunning.com... and since i hate the way their table looks - i redesigned my own and can email you a copy if you'd like (pdf)... :o)

i'm happy the week is almost over even though eric's heading to pittsburgh friday - i get to catsit norman again so i guess that's one plus... i may go shopping w/a girlfriend - she is newly pregnant and in the need of some clothes but other than that, my weekend is free... i will also be seeing my niece, hopefully, just don't know when yet - my brother seems to not know how to use the telephone...

happy thursday...

Ugh, I feel bad for your Public Transit situation, doesn't sound fun at all! And I hope no one has really been stepping on your foot... I'll be starting to C25K in a couple weeks, April 2nd, so we can kind of do it together! I wish you all the best with it... I've given up on the program before, but I'm determined this time.

Take care,
PSG

ha, your brother sounds like many of my friends. i admit to having phone phobia sometimes. :)

hope your weekend is restful.

I love reading your blog! I would love it if you would forward your chart for the C25K.

I am not a fan of phones either- how about an email to the bro?

Thanks!

hey girl,
that sucks about the transit situation. on the other hand though....sometimes i would love to be able to sit and read my way to work rather then drive. mind you, with what you said about yesterdays commute i am happy enough alone in my little car, singing way out of tune to my own music.
good for you on running!

HI Jodi, I found your blog through your comment on AngryFatGirlz. Just wanted to comment on C25K. Good luck! I did that program last year and made it to running 1 mile at a time, which was a big accomplishment for someone who weighed almost 200 pounds. I'll be starting it again soon. Have fun running!

thanks for your comment Jen, I will maybe just chalk up my weight gain to retaining water....who knows. I guess I'll have to wait till Monday to see :)
