|Maybe I'll paint him next|
I'm still toiling away on the landscape cabin picture for the girl at work. I love trees now! I've swapped my hatred for trees to hatred for cabins. Trees are just fabulous now that I'm really good at them! I'll show you guys my work on the painting when its completely done. Hopefully, by this weekend, but that will depend on my sanity.
I had an awesome weekend. I ran 9 miles with Frank at the rec. It might have been 10 since I had to count on my fingers. The rec no longer lets you borrow lap counters, but they are available for $10 at the front desk (a string of obscenties followed learning this news). We followed up our rat circles with a nice long dip in the hot tub. Ahhhhhhh...
Saturday night, Tony Stark and his doll went to a Halloween party (party shmarty, I just wanted to do the makeup!) And Sunday, after some wedding dress hi-jinx (I couldn't resist) we made the long trek back to Dayton, stopping in Akron to drop off my 2 paintings for the auction.
|And they say you'll never wear it again|
The base is practicing security drills all this week, which makes going to the gym tricky. Will the gate be open or won't it? My Type A schedule does not appreciate this disruption. It took me the entire 30 min drive home from work on Monday to reset my brain from bike mode to 9 mile outdoor run mode. I ran my 9 on Monday, 7:46/mi avg pace. I think I might be coming to terms with my new regular pace of 7:35 - 7:50/mi average. Gone are the 7:20/mi runs of my single days. And right now, I think I'm ok with that. I just want to be able to run (and now my actual hip hurts!). And sub 8s aren't too shabby.
Anyone else having a disgustingly injury-filled year?
