We had the day off today. Like completely off. Like I could have slept in as long as I wanted and I got to wear PTs all day kind of off. So what do I do on my day off? I get up early and go run a 5K. LOL It was fun like they always are, and this one was pretty scenic, too. It was around one of Saddam’s man-made lakes and I got to see some new sights. It was a little short at 2.95 miles (vs. 3.1) and I finished it in 30:15. It didn’t start until 0700 so it was already starting to get warm. During 5Ks, I usually don’t take in any fluids. But I did today – they had 3 water stations and I got cups of water at the 2nd and 3rd ones.
After I got back I enjoyed the rest of my day off (not that I didn’t enjoy the race). I took a leisurely shower and then came back to my room. I did stuff on the computer for a while and then I stitched some. Then I was tired, so I took a 2 1/2 hour nap – right through lunch. LOL Then I stitched more in the afternoon, and I had 4 hours on 3 projects by the time I went to dinner with my friend SB, our bass player from Joyful Noez. We had a nice talk during dinner and then he walked me home since it was dark out. Once home, I stitched for another hour on project number 4 for the day.
I’d have to say that it was a very good day!
Here are the cross stitch projects I worked on today.
