Time to shift gears (sports and professional)

Sports: ok, time to gear up for something else (what?) I am thinking about a fall marathon or 50K (latter in early December)

So, I need to walk more but I need to build up gradually.

Today: 4.5 mile walk (28:37 for 2.1 miles, 5:17 extra lap); about 1:03 total and I focused on form for 2/3 of each lap, relaxed for 1/3. Then weights; rotator cuff, pull ups (15-15-10-10); went very well…showing off for Sue? incline: 10 x 135, decline: 10 x 160, military: 2 x 50 (barely got it up, 10 x 45, 15 x 40, then 10 x 180 machine, rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110 machine, plank, head stand, knee stretches..and goblet squats: 2 sets of 6 x 30, 6 x 40, 6 x 50…good depth..minimal pain when I “sat back.”

Math: trying to get myself to do the hard work to make an article worthwhile…there is a reason I balk. I need to force myself to learn new things throughout the academic year.

New photos from last weekend: no, I am not in them. Crystal ran about 7:30 mpm, and the other photo shows some 6:20-6:25 mpm runners (30 years ago..or more for me)
