Westward Ho

I'm on my way to San Francisco, where I'll be sure to wear a flower in my hair. I'm attending a ONE-day meeting, but whatever! I need to make the most of my time there by making sure there is at least one RBF meet-up. So, on Friday night, I will be spending the night with none other than 21st Century Mom, in her humble abode. God only knows what we'll get up to.

So far we have big plans! She thinks we're going on a 10-mile run. I have agreed (in my head) to five miles; I figure I can pace her the other five on her bike. Other plans include hot fudge sundaes and wine. That's as far as we've gotten. (I mean really, what more is needed?)

In running news, I hate running. Sunday I went back out and re-tackled the Mother's Day 10k route because it kicked my ass on Mother's Day, and it's not nice to kick mothers. I'm determined to show that trail who is boss. I finished it Sunday in the exact same time as I did during the race. So either I a) wasn't really racing on Mother's Day, or b) I was really racing on Sunday. Either way, I'm gonna show that #$!%!@^ it can't treat me like this.

Yesterday was back to the stationary bike to try to build up some leg muscles. And today a 4-mile run that felt like 400.

Does this %$!# sport ever ever EVER get easier???

Happy Tuesday everyone.

Easy for you to say, Bob!!

And heck no, Oldman, if I took the redeye back on thursday, i'd be useless in the office on friday. See the logic?? :)

But, yes, sometimes. The hard part is not knowing when it will happen. Like this morning on my what should have been 5 miler...????? Uh, three...and it was an ugly three. (Sing, the sun will come out tomorrow....blah blah blah)

I'm writing this at 4:54 a.m. Is it wrong to be craving a hot-fudge Sunday right before my treadmill workout?

Have a great time in SF.

if there were such a person who thought this was easy, i don't think he or she would live long to brag about it. you are doing great out there!

Juls said...

I hope you enjoy your visit here in sunny (hopefully) California. I've got 20 miles on Sunday - after your 10 miler, you could come down and run with me too. :)
