For the first time since the Army-Navy Game (December 2), I skipped a long run this weekend. Before that it had been last May 2007 that I didn't run something near or more than 10 miles.
It felt great.
I went to a Tampa Rays-Florida Marlins baseball game in St. Petersburg Saturday night and I didn't get home until midnight. Then I stayed up watching a stupid movie until 2:30 a.m. I am a strong believer in having adequate rest before attempting strenuous efforts like long runs in 80 degree sauna heat.
The Rays won, 4-1 in a good game. The stadium was full up as it was Hispanic Heritage Day or something like that. The stadium PA announcer spoke Spanish all night so I missed out on the free condo giveaways and whatever else he was talking about. Thank goodness the scoreboard was thorough in its game details.
