I'm glad I crossed a few things off the list but something needs to change. For a recovering type A personality like me, a half-completed list is crazy-making.
Of course, part of the trouble is that my lists are often too long. The other is that I underestimate how long some things (read "quilting projects") will take. I suppose the answer is better planning but that feels like a whole new project and I really don't have the energy to take on another one.
While you're thinking that over, here are a couple of photos from Sunday's run. As you can see, it was a grey dreary day, but it was also still and mild, so perfect for running.
On the upside, both my weekend runs - an 8k at tempo run on Saturday and a 14k LSR on Sunday - felt great. The highlight came on Sunday when I spotted a pair of massive bald eagles high in a pine tree near the river. I wish I'd taken a decent picture. They really were spectacular.
Despite my general grumpiness, I seem to have landed on a cheerier note so let me sign off here and get back to work - right after, I strike "write blog post" off my list. ;-)
Happy running and writing, friends.
