I have a girl scout troup coming to my studio after school to paint today. I don't really know how I got roped into this (Aspen doesn't even do girl scouts!), but I'm sure it will be sort of entertaining! I'm going to run it like a paint and sip - have them copy me doing a step by step painting. SOOOO... I've got to spend the day prepping the studio for that. Also, got the draft of the magazine article I got interviewed for last week and it needs a LOT of work. I swear, he just made up quotes!! So, I'll be spending the day working on making it sound better, while trying not to insult the guy.
I am ridiculously sore from yoga on Wednesday. Like, I can barely raise my arms above my shoulders. OW. Ow. Ow.
Reading a really entertaining book right now - As Good As Gold by Katherine Bertine. It's kind of old, but I'd never read it before and she cracks me up!

Tired.  Spent most of last night in the Children Urgent Care.  Poor little Zoe had 103 degree fever.  Was up and down most of night with her.

Feel a little beat up today, especially my arse muscles! Headed to the pool at lunch, and may try to get on the trainer tonight.

Running around 20 miles total this weekend. They're going to be easier runs, though, as next week the goal is to run mid 60s.

I had to do my run on the treadmill, as I am in a part of Austin that I don't know well and (I believe) does not have sidewalks. Glad to be going home tonight.

Workout was 4 x 30" strides, followed by 19' at endurance. The run felt on par with running outside, except for the monotony of being on the treadmill. My Garmin's calibration was almost spot on with the pace of the treadmill. That might be a first in the history of mankind.

Well, the too-early wakeup trend broke this morning, but that was only because I didn't get to bed until just after 11 last night (not because of Chase - he continues to sleep through the night, after putting him down between 7-8).  Late phone call with my mom.  Debated about forgoing the planned swim and getting an extra half hour of sleep...but I figured I'd be tired today regardless and had already packed my bag.  So, off to swim I went.  Kept it super easy as the purpose was just to do SOMETHING so I wouldn't feel like the day was a total waste, workout-wise.  Helped work out some of DOMS I have going on (mostly in my legs) from my strength workout on Wednesday.

6:17am:  Last night was all sorts of awesome.  Dinner at Rosebud was FABULOUS and the Wait Wait Don't Tell Me taping was just about the funniest thing I've seen in ages.  I would highly recommend both -- but especially going to see WWDTM. The show airs on Saturday mornings and is pretty awesome, but the taping is over twice as long and all the stuff they have to edit out is hilarious.  For anyone who stays up on current events (otherwise the jokes probably won't make sense), this is DA BOMB.  Oh -- and the radio show is national and also available to stream or in podcast form.  Go listen.  You'll like it.
I've got 3 workouts left to fulfill my GymPact for the week ... and if you do the math with me, 3 days to accomplish this (and you can only do one workout a day).  So, that means that I'll be doing something reasonably active once I get home.  I'm exhausted, but took in some caffeine and am managing to be vaguely coherent.  Let's h[...]

Another lunch time run. This was just a simple out and back on the canal trails--more of a recovery run.
