33 and raining.  I think that I'll run a little later.


We went to see Anchorman 2.  Meh.  

At times the movie went off the rails and cross the line between funny and offensive.

Run done.

Time to make the stollen -- and finish wrapping the gifts.

In other news, Elf returned to the North Pole to make his final report.  Naughty List or Nice List, which will it be?

√ Yoga tonight

After my back decided to act up this weekend, I decided that I needed a massage sooner rather than later.  Next available appointment is Saturday.  I snapped it up.  (I suppose that I could have called the other place to see if Jill had anything sooner but I did not.)

Bond Park-Black Creek Greenway-Cary Parkway

Nice run. I felt a lot better than yesterday on it. I would have liked to have seen a faster pace but it was definitely zone 2 so it is what it is. I'm not sure that I've ever done more than 30 running miles in a week until this month. The last two weeks have been 39 miles each. I'm guessing that I'm getting some fatigue built up.

It was 69 degrees, humid and blustery (18 mph wind) when I started the my run this morning. It was nice to run in shorts and a t-shirt!

Olive Chapel to Kelly Road and back

Ack! I was so happy that I got some decent runs in earlier this week despite being sick. Now I'm starting to feel better and this happen :-/

On the up side, it's the week before Christmas and I ran in shorts.

8x 30 sec strides with 30 between.

I woke up this morning with a really stiff lower back.  This is odd considering that I have had no stiffness at all since starting this run focus.  In fact, I was starting to think that the bike was the root cause of any hip problems that I had in the past year.  Then bam! SI joint (or maybe L5/S1) stiffness.  I did a dynamic warm up before my run this morning but still experienced some discomfort during it and I wonder if I was having a hard time striding out?  Then later this morning I did a good round of stretching.  More stretching and rolling is on tap for this evening.


More Manatee Mailer stuff today!  So fun!
