Poor night's sleep and stomach is off this morning. Plus it's Monday. Not a bad weekend. Busy but didn't get a lot accomplished. Nice to see parents but so sick of guilt trips. Ah well...

Parents visiting this weekend, which is good and bad. I guess I like my routines and get anxious when they change. It will be fine, except for all the guilt trips. Very tired this morning.

Planning pacers for last 26 miles of my big trail race in August. Never had to rely on someone for a race before. This will surely stress me out, but it's nice they want to help me get through it!

Enjoyed my radio show last night. Warm run this morning at 5 am. Chiro appt today, then may go have dinner at a local brewery. Feeling more positive today; early morning runs help with that!
Jeff M

Also, I really should not post here when I first go online in the morning. Mornings are always lower times. I wonder if I posted twice a day, how my perspective might change?

I kicked off with yoga & then chores bright & early this morning & feel great! I think the twice a day post is a great idea.

Jeff M

I was doing yoga in the morning last year, Manda...it was far easier to face the day looking forward to yoga than running (esp since that's hard to do dehydrated), but I can't find time to fit yoga in anymore...

I wish I ran in the morning. I'd feel much more productive! Yoga is a nice gentle way for me to ease into the day though. At first it kinda felt like a chore, but now I look forward to it & find myself doing it much longer than when I started. 💚 it!

I ran under a dark (ish) cloud this morning, it was nice to have some shade for once, I managed to run a bit quicker. Maybe not as quick as a run last week, but more evenly paced.

Did not sleep well last night. Running-related foot issue hurt. Heard a bang (probably fireworks) and immediately started fearing my neighbor/friend shot himself. Too hot, then too cold.

(Saw neighbor's lights on this morning, so all is ok, I guess.)

Foot hurts. Feeling kind of ill. Have far more work than I should today, and have to lead a stupid meeting, so that's stressful. Going to be a long, difficult day.

Ran a few miles in crazy humidity yesterday, then five miles cooler this morning. Blisters healing. Having my floors redone today, which means dog outside all day and working at home.
Jeff M

Eager to get that done. Stressful when the normal routine is disrupted. Worried dog will be barking all day long. But it's just one day. We can survive it. Will be nice when it's done.

Good run last night...legs not too painful, and blister a bit better. (Alliteration!) Going to be HOT, which means running super early. Blah. Roger Daltrey concert tomorrow! Woo-who!
Jeff M

Also, got super-fast fiber optic Internet yesterday at home, which means I can finally cancel Time Warner! No more regular TV, but I don't watch that much anyway. All Netflix and Amazon for a while!

I meant to run early too today, but didn't wake up until 10, so that was that....

John T

Fibre is great (despite most fibre in the UK is poor - I get phone line rental-74Mb/s fibre-free weekend calls for just under £24 a month) Enjoy! Asper, just delay it for a day or try the evening if you have enough energy.

Jeff M
29 Jun 2018 ·

Yeah, when it's hot, running has to happen early or maybe late, in the dark. But if you miss the time, get out and walk or something...the heat is good for you if you don't overdo it!

Chiropractor adjusted my back and asked about the race. I didn't bring up my breathing issues, but he started telling me about systema breathing and lent me a book. I needed that at that moment.
