Today my goal was to just run, to feel strong and to keep everything under 10 minute pace. I am loving the cooler temps, but still not loving the morning.

I can only do my run tonight if I get my school work done first.  Sadly, actual work is really get in the way of stealth school work in the office.   Jerks.

Skipped the gym, grabbed my yoga mat and headed down to the edge of the Hudson under the GWB and did some plyo, pushups, burpees, PT exercises, skipping, abs and stretching. It was a sunny and lovely day.

So now I need to figure out specific training programs. Since I am just aiming on finishing, I don't need a really intense plan, just one that will get me to the distances needed within the time needed without hurting myself. The last condition is the most important one.
So, can everyone see all that data at the bottom?   I would like to think not, but ... oh well, it is what it is (for now :) ).

Work a Little Harder

"The best & most beautiful things in life cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the heart." Helen Keller
Today is a late work day, so I had a 3.5 mile run at the park on the calendar. Plans need to be flexible, especially when awakened at 3:30 am by the sound of the storm. Fitfull off and on sleep after that. I finally got out of bed around 6 and headed out to get it done as early and cleanly as possible in the neighborhood. Good thing I did, it looks like the rest of the day will be rainy, overcast and gray. 80* at the beginning of the run and 90% humidity made it nice to cool off here:

10:33am:  What a morning.  Got up early to drop the dogs off at day care... so I was driving my truck... sooooo... I forgot my US Steel Mill drive-in pass.  DOH.  To get inside to my office, I would need to pay $25 for a replacement pass.  So - I came back home and am working from here.  Not the worst thing in the world, but I hate it when my day gets messed up like that.
I will say that the house is quiet without the pooches around...
Started watching the Ken Burns show about the Roosevelts -- Teddy, FDR, Eleanor -- and am already fascinated.  Of course, it's 13 two hour episodes, so I've got some quality TV time ahead of me.

Just Enjoy the Moment

John texted me last night as I was leaving the gym.  Said he was going to call when he got back to his room from dinner.  I waited up.  BIG mistake.  At 11:30 he texted again saying he had just gotten back to his room.  Really?  I am going to bed, I waited up and now it is wayyyyy past my bedtime.
Might take the bike out for a little ride once the coffee wakes me up. ***Done, gorgeous day and nice ride.  Completely enjoyed it--with the exception of my keester in the saddle part.  Not loving my saddle.  And I suck at climbing, but that is cause of a lack of real bike riding for most of the year.  THAT will change next season!
Miss Thing called me yesterday.  She went to an open house to try and get transferred into the nursing program at Longwood.  The person leading the program was NOT in the least bit encouraging.  She was pretty upset.  I reminded her that we had talked about coming up with a Plan B all along[...]
