1. Today I’m having one of those days where I’d like to get back in bed and start over. So far today I’ve spilled an entire thermos of organic milk (at what that stuff costs per gallon, I do nearly cry over spilled milk), dropped my fried egg on the floor, and showed up for a chiro appointment and had no one be there. Not exactly a successful day so far. I think that should be a perfect excuse to curl up on the couch with a book and not move all day. Right?
2. This week I had to go to Annapolis for a meeting with a conservation group. I drove my Pilot because the potential for stop and go traffic was high (and did indeed occur) and my civic is stick shift. As I parked in a lot full of Prius, Smart cars, and Zip cars, I felt like I totally lost environmentalist cred. I wanted to put on a button that said “no, really, I usually drive a civic.” LOL
3. Running is going well. I can run my easy runs a bit faster and still have them feel easy. Four to six miles has become a breeze. My calf sometimes gets tight and the balls of my feet get a little roughed up when I run too many barefoot miles, but generally speaking everything is working right. So, what’s my problem? I have no desire to run more than 6 miles at a time. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Which would be fine, except I’m running the Blue Ridge Half Marathon in April. Ummm…
