RUN: 8x440 @1:23, BCC PL

It was chilly tonight at practice. It was a long-sleeves&should've-worn-mickey-gloves type of night. I had stayed an extra 1/2 hr at work (to 'make up' for this morning), but it turned out all fine. I sort of ran by myself, but it was good for focus. 1/2 mile warm up (very even 9-min mile pace), then I did my 440s@1:30(goal) w/2min rest inbetween... here were my times - 1:15, 1:20, 1:24, 1:21, 1:22, 1:25, 1:24, 1:15

So it was pretty even-ish. The first four were easy, then I could really hear my feet pound for #5-7, then the last one was kind of messy, but got through it. Doug was cool tonight. I'm feeling more at ease about the getting back into running... I'm running 3-4 days a week,... will probably try to get in a run on Saturday and Sunday... maybe not the Sunday morning at 7am deal, but I will get the miles in at some point.

Work was okay today... a bit dragging at first, but picked up towards the end. I'm getting more face time with my boss (and boss's boss)... not sure if that's good or bad, but I think it's better either way. I'm 1/2 hr ahead of "schedule", so I'll either get in late tomorrow, take an extra-long lunch, or head out for Orlando earlier (depends on whether or not I have plans with my guy).

Tonight, I'm heading up to Merritt Island to go see Babel. I'll be home around midnight, so yeah, that's crazy... no drinking until after I get back. I "punched" it last night and passed out watching tv... (still don't know who got eliminated on Top Chef)... and the sugar from the half-pint of sorbet I also ate probably didn't help in the waking-up, turning-off-the-tv-and-lights, and stumbling-to-the-real-bed, but it was really good sleep nonetheless.

Here's a picture of the culprit:
And while we're at it, here are pictures of the tub of hummus that was my dinner (along with almost-an-entire-bag of tortilla chips)...and a whole fryer that I rubbed with mayonnaise and italian seasoning (it smelled really bad... and is currently sitting in my fridge until it's too nasty to eat and acceptable to throw away (boo (woo)))
Anyways, I've got to grab the dinner I've heated up (fish sticks!) and get ready for the movie!

I'm hiding a comment response here. Know what's more popular than running and dogs? Poker! (The game.) Brawnonymous/ Shawnonymous posted a link in a poker chat room. Don't know why - like it's HIS blog or HIS dogs. Puh-lease.
