Topping off the tanks

Tuesday was a day to run easily, top off the training tanks and focus on Saturday's little 5K. I'll go again for a jog on Friday morning and stay fit in the garage gymnasium (all 20' x 10' of it).

In the meantime, state assessment test results came in from the capitol. The state showed gains and so did we. We even outgained the state average, to close the gap between our slightly lower scores here in Urbania and the 66 other counties. All is not perfect as our three worst schools appear to have gotten worse. Opportunity transfers are hell, among other things. We soldier on.

In the face of that I'll be in retreat on Friday for a 3-day weekend prior to next week's 4-day weekend. I need some chill time. Don't you, every once in awhile?

Garage gym? I'm completely jealous. Although I could gain quite a workout by de-cluttering our garage, I'm sure. Enjoy that chill time .. it does a person good!

Yes, do enjoy the chill time. You deserve it. And use your new speedy times tomorrow in the 5K.

Hey, I have a garage gym too. I love it...no waiting in line, no muscle heads screaming while trying to bench 500 pounds...

Good luck on your race!

Heh,heh. When I think of a garage gym I think of that guy in American Beauty, lifting weights, smoking pot, and telling his wife to stuff it while he's working out. :D

Seriously, though, good luck with your "little 5K" on Saturday.

Definitely a fan of the gym at home, mine is in the basement. Nice escape sometimes!
