|We actually have street drains now. We never did before...just ditches that filled with rain water.|
Just a little November through May project to finish up three little blocks, that's all.
Anyway, so no posts lately. Or no posts of substance. The truth is, there just isn't all that much substance going on here.
For one thing, I missed running for OVER A WEEK, unintentionally. It happened like this:
- Tried mild speedwork, so decided to take the day after off. I'm so responsible now.
- Then I realized that my final swimming lesson was coming up, so I went to the pool for the next three days to practice, so I could actually get something out of my exorbitantly priced lessons.
- Then I started thinking that my left leg felt kind of achy, so I didn't run for a few days. I'm telling you, SO responsible now.
- Then I slept in.
- Then I had early work meetings twice.
And all of a sudden, ten days had gone by. And then when I started back running, I didn't do much, because I realized that if I were going to gradually increase my strength training by following Coach Jay's progression, I should also slowly progress running, or I would get injured from too much running and not enough strength.
In other words, I am doing no interesting running at all, and have nothing to write about, unless a slow three miles in brutal humidity is somehow fascinating to you (although I did step on a large snake during my run this weekend, so that's interesting. I can't believe that snake couldn't get out of the way any faster.).
But I do have a new street, so that's kind of cool.
