Been a while

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

It has been a while since I last posted.  No, I didn’t go for a run that night.  Actually, took a full week off of running, but did 2 sessions of yoga, and did a lot of stretching of the legs on top of that.

But then I got back into the swing of things.  Went for 5 miles last Friday at work.  Followed that up with 7 on Saturday.  Add to that 1.5 hours of gardening at the church, trying to get some flower beds up to snuff, tailgating and attending the OU-TCU game, and I had a full Saturday.  Topped off the weekend by mowing and edging, re-routing the electric fence to save the garden from a dog who apparently like tomatoes, washing both cars, vaccuming one, and swapping car seats.

Instead of resting Monday, I went for 4.5 at lunch on Monday.  I was extremely beat down after that. And tonight is supposed to be B-ball, but I’m feeling much better than at 2:30am when Abs woke up and wouldn’t go back to sleep.  And she started walking yesterday.  Not long before I’ll have my very own running buddy.

Its the most wonderful time of the year!

Its the hap, happiest season of all.  Today starts the very best of all sporst seasons.  Sure, Tonight’s games, even this weekends games aren’t the marquee match-ups of the year, but College Football is finally back.  On a local level, it means being able to listen to the Sports Animal radio station again, as there is some honest to goodness news to be talked about. On a national level there will be great games for 3 months to come.  Someone finally summed it up in a perfect manner for me.

On another note, I got a run in last night.  It wasn’t much of an effort as I was beat from lack of sleep and a long couple of days at work and getting the house ready for the weekend.  But took the pup and headed out for just a tad under 4 miles in 36:15.  Felt good to get a run in, but I hit the bed hard and tired last night.
