Thanks everyone for your comments and messages about my grandmother. It has been tough but my family is doing well. I have decided to stick around Baltimore until Monday since I do not often have no major school obligations and some one who does not mind watching the pets. So I will miss my grand prix race this weekend, which will probably eventually cost me the overall win, but I never expected to get it anyway and will be more than happy to settle for second or third.
Got my first workout in in 2 weeks. I was a little over zealous and planned on doing a 9 mile run with a 3 mile tempo in the middle (I figure I need speed and distance really bad at this point). Bad idea. I did my easy 3, did about 2.25 hard, and then just jogged home, for a total of 6. Still much better than nothing. I only have track meets coming up, until a 5k in 2.5 weeks, so I have a little time to get it back together. I may run a 5k here in Baltimore in Saturday as a workout.
