• Basketball
  • 45m

I had a nice plan for Tuesday. I thought I would run a few miles on the tready and follow with some strength training. Instead, I wandered onto the basketball court and played three games. I was simply looking in on the action when I was waved in. Most of you do not know this about me but I used to be a BB junkie. I would drop everything to play and play until I had no energy left.

Over the past few years my excitement for the game has dissipated. As I have focused on running and improving my fitness my game has deteriorated. I also get tired of playing with kids who think they are all-world caliber while playing in the Gilbert LTF. Go figure. The last few times I have walked out of the gym with some sort of injury. Last night was no different, some dude landed his elbow right on the top of my ear. Ouch! I found out later that I actually have a cut on my ear and this morning the ole noggin' has a bump on it.

So, If you hear me talk about playing a little BB, please talk me out of it.

I should have stuck to my original plan.

Hey, TDT is just a few days away.

ooh ooh ooh. I am so excited. I ran the Phoenix New Times 10k. I was able to set a PR at the 10k and finish with a pace just under 10 min per mile. This is one of my short term goals.

I really was torn between doing the training bike ride and the 10k. I chose the 10k because this was also my sister's first 5k race and I had some other friends who were running as well.

I hope everyone who rode is feeling good today (Monday).

It is a beautiful day out there.  I was able to get my behind outside for a run this morning. I missed the group run last night. It sounds like everyone had fun.

Yesterday was a good day. Shelley and I spent the day together. We went to lunch, dinner and the movies. We saw Dan in real life with Steve Carrell. I thought it was pretty good. A little slow in some parts but not bad.

Shelley got me a new digital camera to replace the antique that I was carrying around. I got Shelley a Coach purse and wallet. She loves it.
