Sluggish

I went to bed quite early last night to try and catch up on what's been lost by DST and other distractions. I woke up early enough to go for a run so I dressed out, had a banana and a glass of water; then hit the streets. It was still fairly dark out and very quiet. I headed south through Baldwin Park and found myself laboring a little with a congested feeling in my right chest. Since it was on the right side I ruled out a heart attack. Wait, let me think about that. Yes. Not a heart attack. Must be a strained muscle or something. I had it last night too.
Anyway, I poked around the Park and logged four miles in 36:05.8 which is just over a 9 minute mile pace. The banana kept reminding me it had not been in my stomach 40 minutes ago so I downed some water quickly to quell the vicious thing. The run was nothing special but the miles are in the book. Count it.
Congratulations to you Florida Gators on the basketball championship. Well done.

The time change is killing me too! I'm so very glad you didn't have a heart attack.

Thanks, Susan. I'm so sleepy this morning, I was trying to figure out DST--something to do with work, I thought?? LOL--it must be *my* congestion of the brain. good run David.

DST--I thought it was a pesticide. Nice job David. Keep tabs on that chest pain.

I thought DST was some kind of program you were in. Geez.

Yeah, that congested feeling is odd. Have you ever had a stress test? Maybe its time. Wouldn't want you to do a Jim Fixx on us.

Glad to hear you are not having a heart attack. I like your attitude - "count it."
