I was bad. I did not do my long run yesterday. In my defense, I did have one of my really bad headaches! I am still struggling with accepting my slow speeds, too. I find myself dragging my feet getting out the door because I know my run is going to go SO slow. It’s frustrating, not picking up the pace much. I know first hand that it takes some time before the pace starts making improvements, but it is still so frustrating to be THIS slow. LOL
I have shaved off about a minute per mile in my pace – I really should be very happy about that! But it is really, really difficult to be happy about it when I was hitting an 8mm pace when I was struck with the shin injury. That is SO much faster than I’m running these days.
Ah well – a really slow pace is still better than no pace & sitting on the couch, right?? :D
I’ve been super busy still in this area. Getting ready for the hols & all, of course. I’ve finished up something like 8 projects in the past couple of weeks. Both knitting & crocheting, of course. Still, I’ve got so much left to do! Yikes!
My biggest hurdle right now is sorting out what to make Dad. He just got a good sized afghan for Father’s Day, so he doesn’t need another one. He also got a hat & slippers last year… and he doesn’t wear socks! We live in Florida, so he rarely wears sweaters I’m at a bit of a loss for ideas, I”m afraid. If anyone has suggestions, please, please – comment!!
12 Working Days until Vacation!
I’ve got quite a bit of vacation time coming up, which I’m really looking forward to ~ I need to recharge the batteries big time! Loads of running, knitting, crocheting & reading is on my agenda for the time off. Yeah, yeah, ok… and yes, loads of Doctor Who watching! I must admit that I am rather glad the manlets will be at their father’s house when the final David Tennant special is shown. I already know I’ll cry & I’d rather not do that in front of them. They already laugh at me & my Doctor Who love as it is. ROFL!
Originally I’d hoped to get away to visit my friend in Hungary… unfortunately, life got in the way & things became too expensive, so the travel nestegg was wiped out & the trip canceled. One day, I am totally going to get out there, though!
Well, I’ve got to manage a trip to Hungary (to see Anett), one to Australia (to see Bill & Brigette), and one to England (to see Kate & Charl) & Scotland (just because I’ve obsessed over it since I was little!). Not sure how long it’s going to take me to get all of my visits done, but I’m determined to get them done one day! ;)
Today’s Ravelry Search
Tried a search for ideas for Dad, but it didn’t turn out so well. So let’s go with something else today! Remember, these patterns are not mine & are all on Ravelry, just click the picture to go to the pattern page.
Happy Monday, all!
I can’t believe there is no such a weather when someone would wear socks, there are thinner sock-yarns out there, there are sock yarns made mainly from cotton…
How about a bath puff? Sun hat? (crochet, white cotton, etc)
I bet you can find a pattern for a baseball hat…
:) Yep, no matter how cold it gets, he won’t wear socks. Bath stuff is a definite, though. I’ll make him another soap sweater for sure, he likes those. I’m not sure about the baseball hat idea… initially I thought no, but he does have one that he wears now that I think on it. Hmmm…
Wow! 8 projects. I am jealous
Best of luck at Gulf Beaches.
If I do see someone knitting and running at the same time, I’ll be sure to say, “Hi”. :-P
ROFL J! I’m a heavy multi-tasker, but I’ve yet to quite manage that combo. ;) Good luck back atcha – I’m assuming you’re going to be there?
Yup, unless I oversleep, but that’s highly unlikely.
I’ll be the one in the white hat and yellow shirt with the Garmin 205. It’ll be like one of those Where’s Waldo games.
ROFL – yeah, you really know how to narrow it down, doncha?! :P I have no clue what I’ll be wearing, other than my pale purple running hat. So I guess I have no room to talk about being a bit vague, huh? he he he
