I didn't run Monday as per my schedule. I had run Friday, raced a 5k Saturday and did another 4k on Sunday. Shins were complaining a bit. So I was good to me. Massaged myself, used analgesic cream, didn't run. Now I feel ready to go again. ... Read more

Organizing
Saturday, November 30, 2013      2 comments

Trying to get my art room/computer room/tack room organized. Since I left my old boarding stable where I was for two years, I went from having a whole room to store my horse gear in, to just a 2' by 2' wood box. It's been sitting in my living ro... Read more

I went out running yesterday. It warmed up from Sunday. Ran alone. My co-worker had call in sick last Thursday & Friday. He'd said he would take it easy Monday but he'd go out Wednesday. I don't think he'll be able to do 5 & 1's. But I don'... Read more

I'd like to try running with a metronome. It's supposed to help one increase speed. I have looked at a couple of free apps but so far I haven't found one I like yet.... Read more
