The Incredible Hulk and a Drippy Ceiling

Guess who did 240 push ups yesterday?!

Aw yeah.  Do you like my pants?

I ran over to a short but steep hill for this workout:
4 x (run up the hill, 30 push ups, 30 lunges/leg, run down the hill, 30 push ups, 30 lunges/leg, 25 tri dips)

This workout was power-packed with push ups and walking lunges, and it was challenging.  The lunges were harder for me than the push ups were; by the third circuit, I stopped for a breather every few lunges.

Monday: 7 miles in the morning.  No shin pressure or crazy legs!  This run had a slow start, but then I got moving at a decent pace– Lately I feel like all I can do is crawl for the first mile or so of every run before my legs wake up.  I was pretty sore from the triple-digit lunges yesterday, but my arms took the push ups surprisingly well.

This evening, there was a reception for a visiting prospective faculty member held at a current faculty member’s house, and all AuD students and staff were invited.  It was beautiful outside, so we mingled, talked, and snacked in her house, on her deck, and in her backyard.

She had THE COOLEST BACKYARD KNOWN TO THIS EARTH.  Treehouse with suspension bridge, giant rope swing, zipline, trampoline, and balance beam, just to name a few treasures, all overlooking a picturesque ravine.  I didn’t really get a chance to talk with the candidate, but I did get a chance to play with the kids and go down the zipline!

Here’s Andrea on the zip line platform, getting ready to jump.  She was a little nervous, but she did a great job!  This picture does not do justice to the height factor.  It was scary up there!

Lauren and I were welcomed back by a steady drip of water from our bathroom ceiling into our tub.  We called emergency maintenance, and while we waited an hour for him to come, the problem got worse.  The steady drip picked up speed and started coming from multiple spots on our ceiling.


We were not amused.


The maintenance man came and ended up cutting out a patch of drywall from our ceiling to investigate the leak.

Awesome.  He replaced a piece of plumbing that was rusted/moldly/most likely the root of our problem.  Let’s hope this water problem is solved.
