I've been pulling my running act back together in fits and starts over the last three weeks, but this morning was a triumph. I'm sure I'll be OK for a 5K with a decent time on 6/15, and am going to go ahead with plans to run a slow 10K in late August. Maybe it's the endorphins talking, but I feel great.
Following on my 7m yesterday I did a 5m today at, check it out, a minute faster pace than the last time I did this same run 6 weeks ago. And it was a "regular" run, no significant push for speed.
The rest of life: We have not seen the prom queen yet, she spent the night at a girlfriend's. This afternoon both moppets have a recital. Tomorrow the neglected child (the one who didn't have a milestone birthday, relationship troubles and first prom all in the course of three days) and his sixth grade class are off to go camping, with some of the big kids (including his sister) in charge and minimal adult supervision...just enough to keep it from turning in to Lord of the Flies, I hope. I'll be there for dinner both nights (it's only a half hour away, and I'm in charge of the food), so should get some good photos and see some fun stuff.
After that there's the seniors' graduation, which is a community event, and then the last day of school picnic, which is another community event, and then - my GOD what will I do with myself for the summer?
