Selpt in a little late but got out for an easy 3. Spring break feels good.

Met out in Washington Fields with some of the team in the afternoon. We went out on the trails and did 10x:30 on the way back. Kinda hot out. 

Something that grazed kale today: I'm quite certain that many a species munched on the leafy vegetable today, rich in vitamins K, A, and C. Kale has been increasing in popularity recently because of its special health benefits, and people across the nation are adding more of the cruciferous vegetable to their diet. According to the Washington Post, even the President dined on kale salad on Thanksgiving.

3 miles in the morning.

8 in the afternoon on the AZ Strip with some of the guys. Felt alright, calves bugging a little.

Something that blazed trail today: Today, I blazed trails, literally and figuratively. And I'm sure many others around the world made tracks through wild country.

Met as a team in the morning for the workout. The 3200 guys were doing 400 repeats, but me and Joe did the same workout as last monday. Some shorter quick stuff with good recovery. Tough workout, but I felt better than last week and I think I was a lot more relaxed too. 

3 later in the evening. 

Something that glazed well today: Around the country, hundreds, nay, thousands of bakers in donut shops glazed extremeley well, gently cascading the sugary glaze over the dough like a sweet, delicious waterfall.

Did 4 in the morning because I thought I would be late for practice in the afternoon because of work. Calves were hurting pretty bad.

4 more in the afternoon with some of the team. Only 5 others showed up today, still fun though. It's all about quality, not quantity. 

Something that braised whale today: Whale meat is consumed in many countries around the world, including Japan, Greenland, and Norway. Some native Alaskan communities also eat the meat. I'm not sure if braising is the most popular way to cook the meat, but it is prepared in various ways, and braising could very well be one of them.

Yesterday about halfway though the run, my knee started to hurt a little bit. Later that night it would hurt anytime I bent my left leg while putting weight on it. It still hurt this morning so I didn't do the morning run, and just did 3 easy in the afternoon instead of the workout because I didn't want to chance things. It felt alright with the easy stuff, it only hurt when I would put weight on it at a certain angle. 

Something that traced braille today: Fingers. But not just any fingers. The fingers of the blind. Although they are unable to see, they are still able to read. "How?" you may ask. The answer is braille. Louis Braille, the French inventor, musician, and teacher of the blind (who was blind himself from the age of three), devised the system of raised writing in 1830.
