Turn Of Events

Running Miles This Week: 30.

Huh? Robb is running?'s true.

There has been a shift to be sure. I've quit whining and started running to and from work. It's about 5K each way so that gives me 50K for the week or 30 miles.

My legs feel the worst. I thought my breathing would suffer but it's my legs that trouble me most - primarily the quads that area stiff. They mainly bother me on the stairs.

This is part of a personal challenge - a deal I've made with myself to run to work 30days in a row and it's worked out pretty well. There's a shower at the office and I keep some clothes there. What more does a guy need?

Frankly, I've been pretty low about not running and it feels good to commit to this and get back out there. Cool and wet this week. It's raining right now and 62 F or 16 C. Perfect running weather.

I'm back baby. I'm back.

So let me see if I have this right. You ran 0 miles last week and just up and ran 30 miles this week. Impressive.

Welcome back.

O.K. I could use some of your motivation right about now!

Great job on getting back at it!

What a great plan. You've got to get to work somehow and you definitely want to get home.

I hope you have a safe traffic free route.
