Where did that week go?

It was spring break for son C last week. He took Mrs. T's old car to southwest Florida beaches for the week. Said something about staying at some frat brother's grandmother's house who had a chef to fix their meals. Beach clubs. Parties. Sounds like what a spring break should be.

The cost of him taking the car was I had to drive the stick Nissan and Mrs. T drove the Audi all week. She never put the top up nor did she stop smiling.

Meanwhile I worked like a dog and ran every day. I haven't done that in a long time. Shorter distances and lots of fast running. Thursday was less than two miles and comprised more of those run-for-one-minute-at full-speed-or-until-your-lungs burst. I did five really well. The sixth was just red-line material in the last fifty meters.

The annual sidewalk art festival was this weekend. It consumes the park were my Sunday morning group runs from at the start. I arrived a little early and parked a block east of Park Avenue. Any art festival goer would pay large sums to park that close. The crowd that showed up to run was mostly fasties but it was a big crowd. I ended up running with Chris, the stalwart. His hammies were hurting but we took our time. It was near 80 degrees and 100% humid.

After the 10-mile run I took in the art festival. Crowds were thin and they kept their distance from this frothy wet runner, until I cooled down.

WARNING: Cadet porn could return this week. West Point is off and three of them are due in here by Wednesday.

At least you're not working in Volusia County these days... It's nice when you get runs in everyday.

The thing with running with Fasties is that you end up becoming one also!

After my 10 miles last night on the Mall I got on the Metro in my drenched running outfit and stood against the furthest door, but still everyone in the car kept looking at me disapprovingly as my cap bill dripped sweat onto the floor. Maybe I just shoulda run the 10 further miles home.

Nice way to end a 10 miler. Keep up the fast running, but hopefully not the working like a dog.
