Reality Check:
I really needed that full day of rest that I took yesterday... It has made all the difference. I did things like read the paper, leaf through home improvement magazines, and stayed in my jammies all day...

Things that went right:
*I'm so jazzed right now because I'm very much back on track with my "casusal" running times. I ran my 2.5 miles in the neighborhood in 23:57. That's about a whole minute less than the last time I ran it. Not being in pain makes such a huge difference!
*I changed my schedule this week because it's going to rain tomorrow, so today was my run and tomorrow will be weights.

Things that need improvement:
*Shoes, AGAIN, but in the somewhat distant future. I must be the grim reaper of running shoe styles... I received a friendly little e-mail from Road Runner Sprots announcing that they're discontinuing the Asics I just bought and "hurry up, stock up and save 10%". I'm sort of back to square one, but at least I don't *need* a new pair of shoes right now. I'm still alternating with my Nikes, so the Asics will take me throught the marathon in June.
*Look at new light fixtures for the "new" master bedroom.
*Figure out new running routes in the new 'hood.

Hi Irene,
I've seen you comment in some blogs so I thought I'd come over to your place.

Good job with your running. It's nice to be painless while running!

See you later.

Your California neighbor.
