Yesterday around 2 o'clock the ground started to shake a bit while I was at my desk. At first I thought it was my building working on something as our building is getting renovated, but then it really started to shake. I work 2 blocks from the Capital and thought for a split second that we may be under attack, until my coworker from CA yelled: "Earthquake!" My cube walls were really shaking and almost fell in and the building felt like it was swaying back and forth. Our building evacuated and while going down the stairs I had some lady panicking yelling "move it, move it."
Once home, some pictures had fallen downstairs and more pictures / nic nacks had fallen upstairs off our build-ins. There was glass all over the place from frames breaking and my poor kiwi was no were to be found. She usually meets me at the door or comes when I call her name, but I had to search for her. She was hiding under the bed and wouldn't come out. The poor thing was still so scared. So, I scooped her up and loved her!
I still really wanted to do Conte's Hills, but there was no way I was going to brave the traffic on such a crazy day. And riding my bike over there is not an option for me because I'm dead by the time I get there then. I thought and thought about it, but then saw my neighbors having an earthquake party. So instead of riding I pulled out my chair on my porch and joined them in having a beer and chit chatting. It was a great evening with good times and lots of laughs. It was nice to feel like I have a life outside of working out.
At least I did manage to run a 5k (splits were 8:06, 7:57, and 7:50..whoot) on my lunch before all the mayhem happened, so the day was not a total workout failure. I will def. be riding tonight after work.
How was your earthquake day?? Hope everyone was ok.
Happy Wed All!
