I took last night off from my scheduled workout. I was going to do a reverse brick (5 mile tempo run followed by 30 minutes on the trainer). But as soon as I got home from work, I figured I’d skip a holiday party to stay home and cook Pharmie some Thai Curry and some homemade Guacamole (weird combo, I know) because she was having a tough few days.
Then I got to thinking that I CAN be taking it easy this time of year. I’m a week or 2 away from starting my half marathon training, and there’s no reason to over-do anything right now. My heel is a little sore, and I should just concentrate on building strength while letting my aches and pains heal up a little. Right? Right.
I shouldn’t do anything stupid. Like intervals on the track covered in snow. Yeah, that was probably unnecessary.
In brighter news, there is a random sign all over one of the schools where I teach. They say “I BELIEVE IN STEVE.” Everyone was asking me about it yesterday. I had NO idea what they were for. A staff member asked how she could get a fan club like that. And one of the maintenance guys told me he believed in me so much that he wanted to give me a hug. He actually chased after me to try to hug me. Weird.
