I'm ashamed to admit that I ended up taking four days off running, although I did do some long walks on a couple of the days. I was just so low energy and blue, I couldn't bring myself to lace up. But today I did two easy miles - my heart rate was way up despite the slow pace, so I suspect there's something physiological to my feeling bad, probably anemia (been an issue for me off and on since my teens). I will begin a round of supplements today, and see if that helps. This break is putting a serious dent in my training for a 10K, so I will either move that back a month or go ahead and run it without intent to race.
Today is "catch up" day - the house is getting a layer of grunge to it I'm not particularly pleased with, laundry is backing up, etc. I just got back from the grocery store and tea with a friend, so the day is off to a good start.
Neil Gaiman is my new favorite fiction author - I'm reading Anansi Boys, on the advice of my daughter, and love reading fiction that I have to work to keep up with. The last time I remember adoring an author was my first P.D. James novel, only she turned out to essentially write the same book over and over. Gaiman, according to his fans, changes what he's doing almost every book, so should be good for a longer fling.
I promised to read one of JMan's Terry Pratchetts after (they do all look very good), and then will give 21stCenturyMom's Goetzee a whirl. That ought to take me to the start of school, when I'll be reading things with titles longer than my blog entries.
It's a gorgeous day. I will try to get pictures of something, anything, up later.
