The Good, the Bad & the Fun!

The good – I ran a great 5 miles last night. It was super fantastic. I felt strong, had no leg/knee pain (just some initial stiffness). I did my 5 mile Terwilliger loop (i.e. hills) and finished in 57 minutes (I feel okay with an 11:26 pace on those hills – I know I was much faster on the flats/downs of course).

The bad – in addition to my bike getting stolen yesterday, when I got back to work after my run, I found out that my hallway gets locked at 6:30 PM. I got back at 6:32 PM. I had a key to my office but not my passcard to the hallway (I used to run with it, but it got sweaty). I finally found a friendly janitor who let me in, so I finally got my stuff & got to go home.

The fun – BREW REVIEW!ย  WOO!ย  So – This Friday, August 28, we will be having QUITE the crew showing up at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall (1945 NW Quimby). The architect & I will plan to show up shortly after four to try to snag some spots for the giant group!

Tonight is going to be a super intense homework night. This is the last week of my 2nd class, and I have my final project due Friday. Tomorrow night is not going to be a good homework night, so I have today & Friday pre-beer to hammer it out. So – wish me luck! (I will also be doing my PT exercises tonight during breaks from the writing.)

    Bummer about being locked out, it’s happened to me before and I had to call to get the door unlocked.

    As for brew review, I boycott b/c you chose NW =). I actually don’t know what are plans are for Friday.

    Good luck with homework, I don’t envy homework!

      I left it up to the will of the people! And, since you won’t be carless after all, I figured it wasn’t SO bad.

      I hope you guys can make it.

      I think I’m going to do the run like hell 5K again – although I do love me a half marathon, but it’ll be three weeks post full marathon, and I do want another go at a 5K PR! ๐Ÿ™‚

      I love running Terwilliger – and really need to start doing that more often! It’s almost as much fun as trail running – just a little too short.

    Yay for a pain-free run!

    Good luck with the homework. I may make a guest appearance at Lucky Lab but not sure. Have fun!
