Gorgeous Day

Today the weather report was saying a chance for thunderstorms. Mostly tapering off by noon...so far we haven't had any rain. Hopefully the chance has passed too becaue it is absolutely gorgeous out. Sunny, no clouds, very light to no breeze and upper 70s...it's one of those days that comes along in mid-spring to early fall, before summer's humidity hits and when the sun is fantastic feeling, even if it is upper temps to some people...yep, today is one of those days. I was out at lunch. I almost didn't come back. I just hope that it stays till the end of the work day. Another 2 hours and I'm out of here and heading home for a run. In fact, I have everything with me...it's almost tempting to make a jaunt through Highland Park on my way home instead of running at home...hmm...I think I have my garmin, at the very least I have a watch of some sort, if I head out and back for 20 minutes each way I can know it was a little over 4 miles...heck, 18 minutes each way would give me about that, even on the hills...what a nice thought. Outside, on trails, softer turf...I think it's just what I need.

Yesterday was nice too, but it was windy. I had to take yesterday off, still being good like I have been. Saw L last night and he massaged some stuff into my leg to try to loosen it up more. It's medicated lotion, along the lines of IcyHot but much higher end. Anyway, when he worked on things most tight pain areas were only about a 3 or 4 at most (he asks what it is painwise on a scale of 1-10), one spot (and what I think is causing my tight hamstring) was a 7 or so, but the rest felt fine, even areas I thought might be bad weren't as tight as I thought...so I'm excited. Progress might be still going on. Now I need to work on the weights, that's for Monday (or maybe this weekend), losing the weight I have gained and focusing on getting a nice base to build on starting in December or so. I have posted a tentative 2008 schedule...we'll see how ambitious I am.

What a great fall day! I hope it stayed nice for your run.

Looks like a good 08 calendar! Good luck! Maybe you'll have to add Hood to Coast at the end of August???? :)

I think you'll learn to like weights... or at least the affects. :)
