Crickets?

First let me say that I must not have as active a life as the rest of you. I thought I was plenty dang busy over Thanksgiving break but I still found plenty of time to visit the blogs to see what you folks were doing. Crickets.

Well I raced and ate Thursday.

Went to the car show on Friday. Mrs. T wants the new VW convertible, the Eos, badder than she wants anything else about now. Son T wants his Sentra back in 18 months. Son C wants his first car - and not just any car - to impress the world. I just need to get to work and back. I may be heavy into the car buying business over the next two years. Ugh.

Saturday was a lazy day with some football watching.

Sunday I ran long with nine other folks. Just about all of them are in training for this Saturday's half marathon so the run was serious. I set my watch on timer/repeat so I could track 9:50 easy pace miles. I hit them perfectly for 8 miles then dropped the pedal and raced to the finish over the last two miles. Covered the full 10 in 1:37.

I am looking forward to the race. After my good showing in the 5K on Thursday I am hopeful for a strong performance over the longer distance. I'll be shooting for a PR to beat whatever the time is over there on the right margin.

Tuesday I'll do some speedwork and not much else before Saturday. I have to go out of town at the end of the week.

I hope you're all fat and happy from the holiday. It'll tide you over until Jon comes back online.

1:50 half mary is a pretty sweet time. Good luck on the PR this weekend!

Badder is a neat word. It's kinda like funner which isn't really a word and is my new favorite word to say. Anyone who wants a car badder - should have it I say.

I can't figure out why people are just typing fat. But okay, I'll play. Fat yes, I got fat.

I really need to stop commenting on blogs at 4AM.

Tell you what...you race this weekend and send all your speed to me for mine. I'm going to need it since I can't use my stupid Shuffle.
