I WAY didn’t get up to run this morning. I didn’t get up until almost 0740. I did have a little bit of time to chat with Ryan while I was getting ready though, and that’s always a nice way to start my day! After breakfast I headed to the band hall for formation and a long day of not much. I had a few little supply things to do but that was it. I finally got a stapler and tape dispenser and sticky notes for my office. After lunch was more of the same, and then I got my horn out for an hour and did some playing. It’s still not pretty, and today was kind of frustrating because I didn’t really hear any improvement. But I know it will take time and I’ll get it back eventually. I just need to remember baby steps.
After work I accepted my punishment (given by me) for not getting up and going running this morning. Thursdays are one of my nights where I go home and shower and have lots of time to stitch. Well, I came home and changed into PTs and went for a 2.74 mile run (in just over 30 minutes). At least it had cooled off to 113 (from 116). After I got back, I changed shirts since you can’t wear sweaty PTs in the chow hall and grabbed my weapon and headed to dinner. I had lasagne and applesauce and a Gatorade. Then it was back for a shower and hair-down time and stitching. I did manage to get an hour and a half in, but I could have had over 2 hours if I had gotten up this morning. Oh well! I also had nice chats with Ryan, D, R, and
. Now I’m finishing up e-mail and message boards and heading to bed. I will get up in the morning to run as I’m meeting up with a friend (not NJ) at 0530.
