Boss is out of town for a few days and a former coworker came in to help out with the gigantic mounds of filing that have stacked up, so it's been a nice, quiet, dull sort of day here in CilleyLand. Sadly, the sunshine has gone away and the clouds are moving in, but I guess you can't have everything!
My knees is feeling 110% better today. Still a smidge stiff and I don't want to run stairs any time soon, otherwise knock on wood it will be fine for tomorrow's run. With only six weeks or so until Eugene, I need to stick to the training program now more than ever so my ancient, decrepit body had just better get with the program!
I stepped on the scale for fun this morning, and after I cussed it out I let it go. The result that is. Damn scale won't leave no matter how many times I take it out to the woods in the middle of nowhere. I don't know where it's getting the bread crumbs, I really don't. I didn't like the number on the scale, but I'm still having a turkey burger with tater tots for dinner. Neener.
Since I muffed my knee yesterday, of course I decided it was time to sign up for a few races in April. I'm going to fit in the Spring Burst 5K for the day before the Race for the Roses 1/2 marathon, and then the Earth Day Advantage 5K for the weekend before Eugene. These are some of the approved races for the running league I belong to.
I was shining up my home treadmill in preparation for listing it for sale (anyone in the CilleyLand area want a great 2.5hp mid-range treadmill, let me know -- perfect for the walker or 'soft' jogger in your life) and since the track was down (it folds up to save space! has a heart-rate monitor and pre-programmed workouts with a 0-12% incline!) I took the opportunity to hang a bunch of race bibs; I hadn't put them up since Halloween. Now with these upcoming races, I definitely need to find a new wall, or maybe put them into a scrapbook. Anyone have any suggestions or links to suggestions of what to do with race bibs? I think someone makes blankets out of them, I don't want to do that but I'd like to do something. Maybe I should just google it.
Break time over! Enjoy your day!
