Unintentionally took a rest day yesterday. I honestly meant to get my feet on the street for another 6 miler, but just got caught up in one thing & another. Besides, it was really cold most of the day & I’m just not equipped for temps like those! LOL
Today I did get a very late run in, though. I didn’t get out there until mid afternoon or so. By the time I got going, it was just over 70ºF, so it was almost a wee bit too warm. I did my recent favorite run – the 6 mile bridge run. This run takes me down the trail for 3 miles, up & over 3 bridges. It’s an out & back trip, so it means 6 miles and 6 bridges. Today’s bridge run was a bit slower than the the last couple, but mostly due to a bit of soreness on the balls of my feet – due to my feet needing to toughen up a bit with the Vibrams. I’m still running in them – hoping to build my feet up so I can wear them for the next half marathon.
My favorite gift
Everyone that knows me, knows of my huge love for Doctor Who. I loved watching it as a kid, but it was really difficult to catch in the States. They played reruns on PBS, but I don’t remember it being a set in stone schedule. Catch as catch can. I finally gave up & stopped trying to find it. Fast forward to last year when a friend convinced me to give the new Who a try. It took about 3 episodes before I became completely addicted once again. My first Doctor was Tom Baker, as he was for so many. But David Tennant is absolutely my Doctor… followed closely by Peter Davidson. :)
So my favorite gift this year? My sister has paid attention to my many Facebook statuses where I commented that I was watching Doctor Who… and this was one of my gifts from her… my first Doctor Who t-shirt – YES! :D
Today I finished the youngest manlet’s punk vibes socks – finally!! He’s got huge feet, so it felt like forever to knit them this time. It doesn’t always feel like that, but it did this time. LOL
I cast on a hat for myself, hoping this one will work for me. Some of them just don’t look good on me at all.
