Hopefully I will be able to pick up the program again by Saturday or Sunday. I have every intention of completing all 90 days of it!
In the interim, I've also not been able to run, which of course bothers me more than anything else. Hope to turn that around by the weekend too. I need to get going in a hurry because Kathleen and I have signed up for three 5K races over the next few weekends, starting on May 9 with the Summer Kickoff 5K in Clear Lake.
We had a nasty surprise on Tuesday morning when heavy rainfall caused a nearby creek to spill water into Memorial Drive which rushed down the main road through our townhouse complex. By 700A that morning we were looking out on what appeared to be a small river flowing down the road. Unfortunately it was not without consequences: our sons' cars (neither of which is worth that much but still in pretty good shape) were parked in the worst spot where the water reached a depth of probably close to 3 feet. The result: several inches of water inside both cars. We're still assessing the damage but it doesn't look good. In more than 10 years of living here, we have never even had an accumulation of inches of water in the driveway, never mind feet... And that was through Tropical Storm Allison, Hurricane Ike & many massive downpours over the years.
The 'river' which had taken over our complex driveway flowed all the way down towards the other end of the complex, where it drained back into a bayou.

The cars which got flooded were parked on the right hand side of the road, where the water happened to be the deepest.
