My ankles are very tender as a result of my race on Saturday.  I have been doing some nice hills on occasion, but when you're trying to run all out, it sure does work them over.  It took me a little bit before they felt okay.  I just did my three mile loop this morning.  Typically that involves running on the east side of the canal.  But "they" are putting a sidewalk in, so I had to run on the west side.  That should make it nice.  I wonder if they're gonna do the entire length of the canal where I run.  It's probably about 0.6 miles.  If "they" are, I should probably good game "them."

It all started last night when I went to rent Dinner with Schmucks at the Redbox.  I took little Emily with me.  She is so observant about everything that we take for granted.  She makes me appreciate things more.  The movie was funny, but it seems every movie I watch nowadays  I have to put the disclaimer in that it was also irreverent, and I wouldn't let my kids watch it. 

I ran the movie back.  That means instead of heading east like I normally do, I went west.  This allowed me to get to the corner of Pueblo and Lindsay at the exact same moment this gangsta looking guy got there.  Now, I'm not saying he was a gangster.  I don't know.  But I am saying that he is what I imagine a gangster would look like.  So, he stopped when he got there, and I wondered if he was going to cross the road with me.  But I also noticed that the light was blinking so maybe he was going to wait for the next signal phase.  However, when the light turned green for me to cross, he crossed too, only he went the wrong way.  Luckily the cars were watching him, and let him pass.  Conclusion: all gangsters are morons.  Not schmucks because I just learned what one of those was, but morons.

Tonight was group run night.  I wanted to do the 6 mile loop since I missed yesterday.  I pushed the stroller on the uphills.  Good workout.  My legs were burning.  Better drink my Results and Recovery drink.  Get yours from an Independent Beachbody Coach today!

Hee hee!

It must be Spring.  Last night on my run a little baby bunny ran across our path.  Today in the canal there were a bunch of ducklings with their mother.  All baby animals are born in the spring, right?
