I'm standing here on the ground.


Distance: 4 miles
Route: To Parkside Blvd. and back.

Exhausted all yesterday, got to bed reasonably early (shot for 9, hit 9.45 - damn you, sexy POTUS) with a non-alocoholic beverage as my nightcap. Still, woke at 5 AM thinking ... what? No. No, can't do this. Long day today, first night of rehearsals, reports due, must rest, have solid, clear concentration ... so, of course, my mind was spinning and there was no way I was going back to sleep.

So I got up. Tomorrow morning is the Friday of Running. If I can make tomorrow, then I get a day off. That's how we do this.

Managed to run another morning in the windbreaker, when it dips below freezing again I will require something warmer. Took it easy this morning, I have been pushing it. Shins stinging, my left knee burning. It feels good to run. Sometimes it feels bad to stop.
