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! ;)
