Still Running...

Though I have not posted about anything recently, I have still been keeping up with the pursuits of knitting, running, and working. :) Perhaps working is not so much a pursuit as a necessity.

Nonetheless, after two or three weeks stuck on Week 4 of the Couch-to-5K training program, I was getting frustrated. No results = no good. I decided to take a big rewind after the time change and begin again. This was one super-excellent idea!

I have been running again for about 5 weeks and finished Week 5, Day 2 today. That's two 8-min runs, for anyone who is keeping track. The mileage is steadily increasing and so is the total time running. Whoo!

/self-congratulatory post :P

The Way the World Works

I find, more and more, that I am disappointed with the way the world works. I am sad for a friend today; it does not seem fair that she has lost her dad suddenly and so close to the birth of her first child, his first grandchild. And all of this is in addition to her having lost her mom (also suddenly) when she was in college. WTF, universe?
