“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Catching Up

Since I generally like to post about how I feel, things that I see or that happen, or that I learn during my runs, I haven't been posting much recently.  Not because I haven't been running, but because the most exciting thing I've learned while running recently is that Nickelodeon shows Full House reruns at 5:00 & 5:30 a.m. on weekdays...

It's just not fun to write posts about treadmill runs - there's only so much you can say.  And it's boring to read it over and over again, so to save all you wonderful people from the monotony, I haven't been posting on weekdays.

If you're wondering, though, I have managed to settle into a schedule nicely:
  • Monday & Fridays
    • Sleep in 'til 6am, begin normal day;
  • Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursdays:
    • 1st alarm at 4:30am.  Roll over & eat a mini Clif bar and drink a glass of water.  Lay in bed until next alarm goes off;
    • 2nd alarm at 4:45am.  Get out of bed, wash face, feed cats, get dressed & get ready to run
    • Start running (or elliptical if it's Wednesday) by 5:10am, finish by 6am;
    • Begin rest of the day.
  • Saturdays
    • Up early (actual alarm time depends on distance to be covered).
  • Sundays
    • Sleep in until I wake up on my own.

So that's it.  I'll probably only be posting about once a week - after my "long" runs on Saturdays - for a while, unless something unusual happens during the week.
