It’s been almost a week since I’ve had a proper run. Last Thursday’s tempo was an awesome 7 miles, well except for the ache in my shin area. Friday I went to my doctor (who is awesome and happens to be a triathlete) He did an xray but thankfully did not appear to be a stress fracture. He said lay off it for a week. No spinning either, that aggravated it as well. Then the very next day, Saturday I ran just 3 slow miles in remembrance of Sherry. I had too. After that run my shin was yelling at me not to be a dumbass. Stupid. Dumbass. So needless to say I’ve been having manhattans and a micro pitty party. The weather here has not been helping my peppy attitude either. I can deal with overcast and rain but it has been foggy and every god dam “living” thing is brown. Brown wheat. Brown trees. Burnt brown grass. Brown tree bark. Ugh. So dead. So lifeless.
Sunday I surprised my son and took him skiing for the first time. Really I was in search if the sun.
Oops! Whose bright idea was this??
Otherwise I have been swimming about 3 times in last week. 1600 yards or about a mile each time. I think I’m kinda slow takes about 30-40 minutes I guess but I stop a lot and look around. Don’t ask at what. Swimming has been great, I really enjoy it. Perhaps a triathlon this year?!
We are headed to Seattle for a potential pretty cool business meeting and soon as we return I plan on getting back to my first true love.
