Rest days – grrrr!

Running

So far, have had an excellent week in the running obsession!  Decided to start getting back my “long run” on Sundays, so I got in a 4 miler.  Not the sort of long run I used to do, but everyone has to start somewhere, right?!   I had a lovely experience of a fellow runner giving me a sideways 5 as he passed me for the second time.   It’s always great to get encouragement from other folks out there on the trail.  That is the one bonus of running on the trail rather than on the roads, I reckon.  Anyway, I made really good time on my 4 miler – much better than I expected to, actually.  YAY!  It wasn’t intentional, it just happened.

I was listening to a recording of David Tennant & Catherine Tate taking over Jonathan Ross’ radio show from April of this year, maybe that helped contribute to my lack of concentration on the pace?!  LOL  Anyway, I know that I must have looked a bit strange because I was laughing so hard during parts of it.  I posted this one online earlier this week, but I lost it on this song…

The other bit that sets me to laughing out loud is the recording of Chain Reaction, in which Catherine Tate interviews David Tennant.  Hysterically funny!  I was also happy to hear that a certain someone shares my opinion of Star Wars.    The funny part is even though it’s just an audio recording, you can so easily “see” the expressions on his face when you hear him in this.  If you’re familiar with him, that is.  LOL

Rest days – grrrr!

So after 4 on Sunday, I ran both Monday and Tuesday, yay!  This morning, however, I woke to a shin that was complaining to me a bit.  Not shouting at me, thankfully, but complaining enough that I knew I’d best take a rest day today.  *sigh*  I’m back to the point of hating rest days at least!  LOL  I did get in my pushups at least.  ;)

I came home to 3 DVDs from Netflix waiting in the mailbox.  All 3 are older Doctor Who DVDs – I’m trying to catch up on all the old episodes that I missed over the years.  That’s going to take some doing, I have to admit!  It was difficult as a kid to find reruns on PBS of Doctor Who – it was pretty sketchy when it would be on.  I eventually gave up over time.  :)

Knitting

So I’m making slow but sure progress on my Milky Way scarf.  I absolutely LOVE how the colors are pooling in this!  It’s just gorgeous!!!

Well, first we have the usual Great Dane camera hog shot, of course:

And here we have a shot at how the colors are pooling – awesome, isn’t it?!

Today’s Ravelry Search

So, next week is back to school for the manlets here.  I’ve got some online friends that have kids already back to school & many more going after mine go.  I have mixed feelings about it this year, as the manlets are both now officially in high school (sob).  :)

Here are some selections from today’s search – click the pics to get to the pattern page & remember, none of these are mine!
