Last night after writing my post, I decided to mess around with the color scheme on my blog. I think of my "team" colors as red, black and white (mostly because those are the colors on my bike), so I thought it would be appropriate for my blog to match those colors.
What I didn't intend to do is change my header photo. Actually, I did - but I couldn't find a suitable replacement, so I decided to leave it how it was. You probably noticed that the header photo is gone. Because it disappeared. I don't know why.
That pretty much ate up all the time I had planned before bed, but I still wanted to do some reading. So I did. Around midnight I turned out the light and tried to sleep. I couldn't. So I read some more. It was finally around 1:30 before I finally was out for the night.
This of course meant that I got up later than expected - around 9:30. I was shooting for 8-ish, but didn't want to set my alarm for a Saturday, that would be ridiculous! I got going on my run after a morning shooter (watered down juice and a half scoop of whey protein). It was cold.
I finished my 7.1 miles in 1:13, a little slower than I would have liked, but I stopped a couple minutes to help a kid on his bike who had gotten lost. The good news is that the tendinitis in my foot feels pretty much healed. This was the best "long" run I've had since the marathon in May.
I had hoped to be back out on my bike by around 1:00, but seeing how it's just 12:30 now, and I just finished my lunch of italian sausage with onions and grilled potatoes, mushrooms and zucchini on the side (I took the sausage out of the freezer last night - the vegetables I bought yesterday), I'm now thinking that time might be closer to 2:00. Which I guess is fine, since that should be the warmest time of day.
