What a week. I think I picked up a virus in Las Vegas. I was stumbling on the treadmill on Tuesday, and by Wednesday I was asked to leave work by a concerned colleague. I guess sweating profusely through my clothing tipped her off that I was not feeling my best. I took a couple days off of running. So I hit the treadmill today and alternated walking and running to get in three miles. I’m feeling much better - of course that could be the wine.
Watching the Saints - WHO DAT? Fantasy football draft is tomorrow night and I’m up first. Decisions, decisions.
I “ran” two pitiful treadmill miles after work. Something weird happened towards the middle of my run - I stumbled over my feet and fell forward using my wrist on the handle bars to break my fall. I slowed down the pace and tried to shake off the embarassment, got into a good stride - and then did it again. I have no idea what was going on but I decided to finish off the run with walk/run intervals. The incline read 0 but I could swear it wasn’t level. I’ve never had trouble like that before - I’m sure it’s just a fluke.
In other news, I registered for the Little Rock Marathon today! My employer is very generous and set up a special code with the marathon officials which provides free online registration for all interested employees. It was the silver lining in my first day back at work since Vegas. That was an awesome trip and I’m so ready to go back. Perhaps I could get there for the Rock ‘N’ Roll in November. Hmmm….I’ll contemplate that.
Saturday was a day. We took the monorail up to the Westgate, then walked over to the Riviera (where a pool player convention was commencing), then Encore and Wynn. We had some awesome slot play at Wynn which fueled hours of blackjack play later at The Quad. Venetian and Palazzo were beautiful as always. We are heading home this afternoon - it’s been a great trip!
Three treadmill miles this morning at the hotel spa. It smelled like so much liquor in there. Or was that me? Anyway yesterday was awesome. Today we are off to The Linq, Venetian and Wynn. And thereabouts. Happy Saturday from Vegas!
