Today was an awesome day. I got Robert to school without any problems and he actually didn’t complain when I told him I wasn’t going to stay until the bell rang, so I got an extra 5 minutes back at home. I rode the bike to work again and had a great, although a little chilly, ride. I wasn’t nervous at all while reading award citations at formation this morning or when I was briefing some Soldiers on stuff. The Specialists that work in Admin got the hutch taken off my desk in my office so now I can see the whole office and it’s a lot brighter in there. One of the Specialists got my dry erase tracking board put up. I got an NCOER (Noncommissioned Officer Evaluation Report) done and sent up to First Sergeant for Review and his Senior Rater comments. I got my tracking board updated. And I got out of work at a decent time and picked Robert up from Child Time on the bike on my way home. He liked that.
Then he got ready for soccer and I got ready to run, and I had an awesome run while he was at soccer practice. I did 60/120s today after a warm-up loop around the park. 60 seconds fast at between 7:30 and 8:30 per mile and then 120 seconds of recovery at between 10:30 and 11:30 per mile. I did that for 4 laps and then a cool down loop. My total distance was 3.45 miles and my total time was 34:38, an average pace of 10:03 per mile!!!! It started raining just as Robert and I were leaving and then we went to Quiznos for supper. I don’t think I even knew we had a Quiznos here, but I saw it and we went. Then it was home for some relaxing and Tivo and after Robert was in bed, I crocheted for a while.
