I am sore.
I've spent the weekend sanding floors. It feels as if I've been doing squats and some sort of arms/shoulders work out all weekend, but with a belt sander. Weekend nutrition was decent and I made sure I had plenty of water. I had intended to do at least a 2.5 mile run in my neighborhood yesterday, but I ended up returning to the house for more labor intensive floor sanding. Older wood flooring does not sand as easy as "newer" wood flooring does, so it takes time. I did get to stay at the house long enough to see a gorgeous sunset. Today is an off day. I do have that Shelter Island 5K event this weekend so I do need to plan a couple of easy runs this week, just so that run isn't so tough.
It's unseasonably warm here today. In my neighborhood it's probably around 85 to 90 degrees and DRY... It's supposed to be getting a little cooler here and perfect for Southern California running weather... Is this global warming? Perhaps. All's I know is that there isn't enough lotion to make my skin not feel so dry and itchy...
Congratulations for those runners who participated in the New York Marathon yesterday! A shout out to Sister Smile for a fantastic finish!
