      I'm babysitting a friend's three-and-a-half-year-old twins overnight. After grocery shopping, dinner, and their bedtime routine, I did my ab work and push-ups. At the gym this morning, two of the trainers/managers commented that I should consider entering figure competitions and asked me if I'd be willing to be photographed for promotional materials. I was flattered, but completely shocked. I have trouble seeing the shape in which I am; all I see is how I can improve. For various reasons, including my vehement hate of being photographed, I said no.

        Bad Ass

          Hi dailies:

           

          Weezer - shorts in the 20's?  Yikes!

           

          D - I'll trade ya some 30's for your 80's a couple times a week

           

          Baboon - no knuckle lights on the treadmill, unless you turn out the lights

           

          Scotty - glad you and everyone else are OK

           

          Lily - nice tempo run, and on a full stomach.  Mine had turkey meatloaf and baked potato with no ill effects Smile

           

          Heidi - good stuff, looks like the rest week didn't bring you down any.  Is that bout with being sick all cleared up too?

           

          10.9 with roughly 5 at tempo, 6:45 pace overall.  A Mexican restaurant near my work caught fire today, hopefully no one was hurt.  Looks like the building is a write-off.

           

          Can I send you the bad humidity we have?  I can just send you that, now that you ask.  75 dewpoint and 90% humidity coming your way, Federal Express next day!

           

          I ran and I was so soaked that when I got into the supermarket, the cashier asked me whether it had been raining long.

            13 miles, including 5 MP miles, in at 8:20 overall pace.  I felt really great tonight even though my calves were sore from yesterday's run (that's the thanks I get for the week off) and this was a pretty fast overall run for me.

             

            You're fast! Your overall pace is about equal to my 5K race pace! Smile
