Awesome August : Day 9

So, this is an embarrassing story...

Back in June I was doing a Cardio Challenge at work and during that month I managed run nearly all of the 150 miles that I challenged myself to run.  Due to some sickness and a vacation at the very end, I officially logged about 140 miles.  So close and yet so far.

Anyway, the challenge ended in July while I was in Hawaii.  What with the jet-lag, my weird mouth problem, antibiotics, and then birthday stuff, I somehow forgot to go back to the gym at all for a month!  Seeing as I was really getting in the groove of working out again, this was quite a blow to recover from.

And, honestly, I didn't recover very well this morning. 

Here's the scene: it's 6am at the work gym.  I don't have my regular water bottle with me because I'm a dumbass... I do, however, have a paper coffee cup filled with water.  I'm taking it easy on the treadmill because it's been a while, and it's a good thing, too because I haven't run very long before I start getting tired.

And then I go to get a sip of the water.

And my foot falls right off the edge of the treadmill.

And the water goes flying all over me.  And the machine.  And the mirror in front of me.  And the guy next to me.

The guy turns and says, "That's one way to wake up in the morning."

Oh yes.  That's how graceful I am. 

But I finished my run and did my weight work out.  And check me out, I'm back in the workout groove!
