Thoroughly enjoying this weather. Unbelievable that it's January. This morning I ran 10.19 miles. I wore capris, a l/s top and reflective jacket. I could have done without the jacket but wanted the visibility it provides. A decent workout. This afternoon, the thermometer on the north side of the house said 54. Yes, 54 degrees on January 31. So I decided to head out on my usual route for a six mile out-and-back. But it was soooo nice (but windy from the west) that I decided I'd go eight. (I go back and forth between 11th Ave SE/County 1 and Marion Road which is a one mile stretch). I looked at my watch and was running faster than this morning and was feeling really good so I decided to do the whole 10.19 once again. And when I determined I was running negative splits, kept at it as hard as my legs would allow. Was THRILLED to run the second 10.19 6:19 faster than the first 10.19. Yee ha!!
I woke up this morning after having one of those disturbing dreams ... that I was back in college (that was eons ago!) and it was finals and I hadn't been to class all semester, and didn't even know what classes I was taking. Thinking that means that getting behind on stuff at home is on my mind. But after yesterday and today, I'm feeling like I'm getting caught up. Still have a lot of work to do on taxes though.
It was so nice this afternoon that I decided to vacuum out my car and Eric's. Then I opened the garage door and swept out the garage. In January. Unreal.
