Sorry about this whole day late thing! I had yesterday off and wound up getting in a REALLY long run – but that’s this week’s training, not last week’s, so more on that later.
Speaking of this week’s training, if you follow us (mostly me) on Twitter you may have suffered through a fair amount of me kvetching all last week about the broken treadmills in my apartment’s gym. Yes. BOTH broke at the same time. I had to do THREE of my runs outdoors. I know I already touched on the subject once, but I think this week is going to have to include another treadmill vs. outdoors post, with multi-pronged arguments and charts. Okay, not charts. Probably.
Anyway, the treadmills were finally both fixed by Thursday, just in time to save me from the outdoor-run-ruining DELUGE of rain that assaulted the Baltimore-Washington area for many, many days. Thank God for small miracles, at least!
|Ah… sweet treadmill.|
Let’s see… musically… um… I’ve been digging on Flogging Molly’s “This Present State of Grace” lately. Um… This music segment was a lot more fun when Moon was involved. Which reminds me! Her mom is, in fact, responding to treatment! So hopefully Moon will be around more again soon!
