    I feel your pain! I just started back up at my University and have to plan on leaving hours before my class to avoid crazy traffic πŸ™

    Way to stick with your run even though you weren’t feeling it! I hate working out when that time of month rolls through, but I always try to force myself through it.

    Back to school traffic is brutal. I’m very thankful that my morning involves just watching the traffic (from the comfort of my home office) instead of driving in it.

    University students go back to school on the 6th here, and I am cringing at the thought of increased traffic already. I think your day of relaxation sounds lovely (and very necessary too, given the circumstances!)

    I’ve totally had days like that – especially walking around NYC in the summer time when all the tourists are here! At least you had a fabulous breakfast to come home to πŸ™‚

    Great job sticking it out on the run. It’s so easy to turn around early isn’t it?! Constant battle with me. I wish I would have known about those mole skins… I got nasty blisters from a 7 mile run on the beach earlier this year and It was rough to walk for a few weeks after!

    Great job finishing out the run! It’s so tempting to quit early sometimes but you never regret the extra time it took to finish the workout when you’re done. πŸ™‚

    Those peaches look fabulous, I think I have a craving now.

    Oh no, I’m sorry! I know that sucks…the monthly visitor and all its baggage is a real pain..sorry it snuck up on you! Seriously well done though for ploughing on with your workout regardless, and having a delicious healthy breakfast as well! I hope your day looks up and you feel better soon! :-)xyx

    Lady cramps blow. I’m really regular and always look to see ahead when I’ll be having my monthly visitor and plan marathons and races for when I know I won’t be having it.

    People say that exercise helps with cramps, but all I ever want to do is curl up on the couch under a blanket with a heating pad on my stomach and sleep.

    Yuck! Cramps=:( all of the hls granola I’ve tried so far has been fantastic. You should try the chocolate stuff if you haven’t already… It’s super yummy and chocolate always helps this time of the mOnth!

    I took an unplanned rest day last week for the same reason. Just could not get out the door.

    I think the strange weather here is not helping anyone’s moods. Going from tons of rain to tons of heath/humidity, is enough to drive anyone a little mental.

    Good job sticking to your plan and finishing out your brick. Sometimes it totally sucks while you’re doing it but the pride you feel after = worth it.

    Gosh do I ever feel your pain. My town is 80,000 people and 40,000 of those are students at the university. Classes started yesterday and I almost hit 4-5 different students that don’t realize that (a) you can’t just walk out into the middle of a busy street without looking and (b) bikes have to stop at 4-way stops, too.

    Hopefully it calms down for both of us soon!

    I love Aleve even more than Midol. 2 Aleve lasts me most of the day and completely eliminates the cramps!

    I hear you regarding all the back to school nonsense. In fact I blogged about it yesterday after a Syracuse University student almost crashed into when I was running. A walking crash but somebody could have gotten hurt. But yeah the traffic round here has totally picked up and it does make it a more stressful workout dodging all the cars

    I know what you mean about the traffic-I’m a senior at USF and the absolute worst part of college is the awful bumper to bumper traffic on Fowler and Fletcher-ugh!

    Also: do you go to the trailhead at the parkway and 54? My Fiance and I are moving from Carrollwood to right off of 54 (sprinting distance to the trailhead) on the 15th. I love that we’ll have the trailhead there for running/biking and we’ll have a pool as well, but I’m still a little bummed about not being near a gym. Do you know anything about gyms in the area or some sort of group things? It’s not the gym that I’ll miss so much as the social aspect of the gym. (I’m currently lusting over an unlimitted monthly pass at Namaste Yoga in Lutz, but at $100 it’s seems soo expensive!)
