I took several days off from running, sad to say. I’ve had a multitude of reasons for it, but all of them valid! I swear! :) I am back to it again, though. Still keeping the mileage low, focusing on expanding the number of days. Once I get back to steady daily runs, I’ll be able to start lengthening the mileage again.
This morning’s run was pretty much uneventful. Got out the door a bit later than I meant to, I fell back asleep while I was star gazing out my window. LOL
I’m nearly done listening to The Resurrection Casket during my morning runs, so I’ll have to decide what audiobook to listen to next. I’ve read that David Tennant is going to be recording another one, which has me really excited. I’ve got all 4 Doctor Who audiobooks that he’s done so far & I completely love listening to them during my runs. :D
So my father asked me to knit him a shopping bag for his Kiwanis Club last Thursday. Apparently they are going to a convention or meeting where they used to sell handmade items. They use the proceeds for their various projects around the community. They’ve lost a number of their crafting members though, so haven’t been able to participate in the past couple of years. So I’ve been focused on knitting up a couple things for that. I’ve completed 2 shopping bags for him now – using the Ilene pattern, which is completely my favorite shopping bag pattern! It is perfect & I cannot recommend it enough. Anyway, I knit up 2 of them so far. It used to take me a week to finish one, but my knitting has finally gotten faster now, yay!! I can get an entire bag done in one day, if I knit all day. w00t!
I’m also working on the Milky Way Scarf with the sooper sekret mean girls’ yarn. It is SO gorgeous & knitting up wonderfully! I am loving it so much, the yarn is so soft & the colors are stunning. :) I’ll be able to post pictures of it in progress this coming weekend. Yay!
ROFL, no kidding?!
Today’s entry in The Runner’s Book of Daily Inspiration is all about how incredibly hot it is in August. The whole page is filled by descriptions of how hot it is. Not one word about running until the final sentence: “There’s only one answer: run very early in the morning.” ROFL! No kidding, really? It just totally set me to giggling this morning. ;)
