Getting My Groove Back

I know I’m an addict. I’m craving a run so badly right now. I’m feeling much better, and I’m giddy with anticipation to go tomorrow morning.  This is the worst time of year not to be able to workout. (I’ll let Jaime break down the reasons why for you)

Leading up to the surgery, I had my best week of running in a while ….32 miles in 5 days! I haven’t seen that kind of mileage in quite a while.

I knew I wouldn’t be able to workout this week, so I pushed it hard last week. It still wasn’t enough to stop me from turning into a lump of human mush, and the feeling is unbearable. One step forward, two steps back. Time to get back into the groove.

I’m in the minority, but I like winter so much better than summer. It’s supposed to be sunny and in the 40’s this weekend. Perfect. It would be nice to get in 7-8 miles on Saturday and Sunday, but you know what they say about the best laid plans…..we’ll roll with it and see how it goes.

Ever since we started dating in 2003, we’ve traveled around the country to see Dave Matthews play. This was the first year we didn’t make it to at least one concert. We sorta made up for it by seeing the Dave Matthews 3D movie last night. There were 3 other people in the entire theater with us. We knew we were going to a part of town where there wouldn’t be many DMB fans, but still. The ticket taker asked us who “Dave Mathis” was.

It was great though. We were free to stand up and dance around like bunch of loons. We brought E with us and it was a blast. She was a ham. Clapping and bopping along. Most of the concert was stuff from his new album with a medley of old songs at the end. They also played a cover of “Burning Down the House”. It’s been part of their playlist the past couple shows we’ve attended, and I think it’s a fun tune.

Little Miss E would concur.
