Saturday, March 23, 2013      1 comments

Okay, the 40:33 for the Emerald Miles was the gun time. I think it works out to about 13:02 per mile. Since my hospital stay in early September, I've not run 3 miles. Since my Dad went into the hospital in early January and then my breaking of t... Read more

Tomorrow is my father's visitation and Wednesday morning is his funeral. Less than 3 months ago, he was active, vital, and independent. Just before Christmas, age and cancer started to catch up to him. By the middle of January, he was in a skill... Read more

When I broke my collar bone, the doc told me no running. He didn't want the bone jarred. That was 6 weeks ago. He also told me there would be a 6 to 8 healing period for the bone. To me, that means 6 weeks. Friday was my 6 week check up. The bon... Read more

I'm really digging walnuts. There's just something about them. To me, they almost taste bland, but if you pay attention, there's a lot of tastiness going on with them, it's just very subtle. Used to be the only nut I ever et were peanuts. I know... Read more

It's amazing what a little sleep will do for you. I worked until 2:15am and got home around 3. Asleep around 4. Thing 2 had a snow day, so I didn't have to take her to school and slept until 1pm. Didn't have enough time to get my act together an... Read more

I'm fighting a feeling of no direction. I think it's got a lot to do with my dad. Next week, he gets moved into hospice. It weighs on me. The result is inconsistency and lack of focus. Friday, I took a day of vacation. I knew Thursday I had to. ... Read more

Last night, after doing mostly nothing except hanging with my Dad and my sister and my daughter, I found myself sitting on the edge of my bed and staring at my dumbbells. Next thing I knew, I was in the midst of 5 sets of 12 reps of curls. I had... Read more

Gym time is becoming more regular, but not nearly regular enough. I'm not getting in enough walking, but I'm getting in more and more. 2 weeks and I should be able to run. Cycling? Not sure. Depends on the strength in the shoulder. I have to con... Read more

I didn't get my sweetie anything for Valentine's Day and I feel guilty. But, I think she has been straying. Back around the first of the year, I started noticing Sybil and Stewie snuggling up to each other just a little too much. First, their ha... Read more

I almost ran today. I spent most of the day in bed, sleeping. My sleep habits have left something to be desired of late, so today, after I took Thing 2 to school, I crawled back into bed and slept until no longer tired. Then it was time to go ge... Read more

So I went to the orthopedic doc today. After taking 5 xrays the way they like to have them taken, he came in and talked to me about my dad. My doc is also my sister's husbands brother. Doctoring is a family thing with them. After the pleasantrie... Read more

Yesterday, I stunk it up at the Kings International CX race in Mason. God, was it fun... I had signed up for 2 races: the Mens Cat 4 going off at 9:45 (the juniors were on the course at the same time) and then at 10:30, the BMI Open (minimu... Read more
