Ups and downs

Something is happening to me. I reviewed my 2006 stat file (courtesy of Dead Runners Society) and see that my weight has gone up. From January through May I was around 149-150. Then school let out, summer vacation and gin & tonics kicked in and I went up to 156 by the time I left Rhode Island. Within two weeks I steadied and fell to a range of 153-154 for four months. Since the week before Thanksgiving (two weeks after MCM) I have been on a steady climb up to 156-157 and the holidays are just about to begin. I never fret over my weight because I've never had to but this is peculiar.

Meanwhile, on the track and streets of MyTown I am moving pretty fast. One of the 1200s I did on Tuesday was a third fastest at the distance and Thursday's 5-miler (43:35) was the second fastest of those I've done. So either I have been undernourished or I'm in pretty good running shape.

Now if I could just keep the clothes fitting comfortably we'll be alright.

Dream follow up - No I was not naked; in the dream or in the bed.

If you weren't nakid, then my professional opinion is that it was just a dream, and means nothing. Darn.

That is a five miles is crazy fast and I'm going to come beat you up because I only weight 20lbs less than you and I'm half as tall.

And you aren't allowed to mention dreams on blogs unless you are completely nakid. I don't make the rules, that's just the way it is.

You're the only person I know who can gain weight and actually speed up! I wonder if it'll work for me. I'll find out soon enough, as the holiday parties get underway.
