not much time..

to post, or to do much of anything. meh.

I can happily report, however, that I have run for at least 30 minutes each day in February, including today. Me & Miz T have been spending a lot of time together. After a few days of gorgeous spring-like weather (we’re talking mid-70s, with light breezes and fabulous sunshine), we’re back in the 30s and 40s with fog and drizzle and just yucky grayness. I’m thinking I need to add another column to my running log to track when I run outside and when I run on the TM. But in any case, I have done what I need to in regards to the February running thing, and I’m feeling good about it.

I’m also almost done with my swimming lessons. Yesterday I worked on the freestyle stroke some more, using a kickboard to stabilize me and give me some “safety net” feeling while I worked on the arm movement. It was amazing how quickly the half-hour flew by, too. And I wasn’t nearly as sore last night as I was on Tuesday, probably because I wasn’t as tightly wound. I really am getting the feeling that the more time I have to just practice, practice, practice, the less onerous it will become.

It’s Friday! It’s Friday! That’s all there is to say about that!

Here's another quote I read today about running: Running well is about doing it day in and day out. The great thing about running is people who work hard will improve. If you just run every day, even if it is beginning with a quarter mile, then half a mile [etc.], you will get better and you will get faster.

So watch out for imrovements to come!
