post-run ramblings

FYI - When you live in Nashville, TN (Ok - Brentwood, TN to be specific), it makes a really big difference if you run at 5:30 AM as opposed to 8:00 AM (which is when I ran on Sunday). I made it about twice as far this morning - despite the complaints from my thigh muscles.

Lunges are brutal!!! I started them up last week after many months of no lunges. I eased into it, I stretched, yet I've been in pain since Wed (probably didn't help that I did a few sets on Saturday while still in pain from the last session...). Whew - but they're soooo good for you - so I'll endure the pain and hope for the best.

My friend Katie is back!!! It is such a treat. I saved her some Swedish chocolate. I've got to remember to give it to her today. :)

Btw, why is it "the best thing since sliced bread"? It should be "the best thing since oatmeal"!! Today I'm having it Scandinavian style with lingonberries. It's quite delightful. Too bad I'll be running out of this stuff in a month or so. It is available at Harris Teeter, but at a highly overpriced rate. Hmmm. I guess it would be worth it.

So - field trip today. Should be fun. I love North Carolina. I want to live there, in fact. Just wish I was here to greet my family as they return from their 3 month Europe stay. I guess I'm officially giving work highest priority... (I'm kidding, mom!!!!)

Well, the oatmeal is all gone (whaaaahhhh!) and I have a meeting that I mandated in exactly one hour, so it seems I should get going...

Until next time...
