    I'm ahead of where I need to be for the Burlington run as I've been keeping to the schedule I prepared when I thought I would be running a full marathon on May 1. I'm going to make some adjustments to my plan in the weeks to come so that I don't peak too early. Additionally, now that the ice, snow, and cold of winter is hopefully in the rear view mirror (I know I'm jinxing myself) I need to get my ass on my bicycle because I have my annual charity ride on May 14 and I haven't ridden in many months.

    Recently finished a 3.4 mile run with wifey. At the moment she's a little intimidated by Saturday's six miles, but she's going to be fine. It's always harder looking up at the next big run.

    I definitely don't think you bored her.....probably charmed her to pieces, the whole lot of you! Hope you're all caught up on the sleep now.....just think, Daylight Savings Time starts in a few weeks! It'll feel like coming out of hibernation!:spaz:

    Yeah, I got a good night's sleep last night so the bags under my eyes are not as puffy and I'm feeling more rested. As long as I don't do anything stupid tonight I'll really be in fine shape tomorrow. :D

    I can't wait for DST; March 13 is the date and it can't come soon enough.

    Always glad to help a friend and yes, you are an easy peasy guest. :tucool:

    As we were getting ready to run today wifey asked why we hadn't run this past Saturday and I had to remind it was because we were up so late on Friday. :lol: :tucool:

    Thanks about the food kudos; it was pretty hectic that night with all of dear daughter's friends over which also caused me to dramatically change my schedule midstream, but I'm glad you enjoyed it. DD has asked me to make the caramelized cauliflower and broccoli for the past two nights :lol: and the leftover chicken and sweet potatoes never made it past yesterday.

    It was a good day for you today and I hope tomorrow goes even better. :tucool:

    This could be a new JSF challenge. "Who can get Déjà to come and stay and for how long?":D (of course, I say this as I do think I am winning, thus far ;))

    I hope I don't meet the same beheading fate that he did. :scared:

    With an offer like that you're going to have forum members bashing down your door. Maybe. Or not. :) ;)

    Looks as if I'm going to have to come up with some new incentives for Deja to come back if I plan to win this one. Whatever I come up with, it's going to be tough to top Choppie's generous offer. :lol:

    Now there's an attractive offer. :confused: :lol:

    Update

    Today would normally be a cardio day, but since I've run the past two days and I think I'm going to just do some stretching and then spend some time figuring out what type of lifting I want to do for the next few months.

    Have a great day!

    I was hoping to be at the gym by about 7:45 after taking dear son to school, but my oil burner isn't running and I have to wait for a repair person. I have a suspicion that my oil company missed a delivery and the tank is empty.

    TGIF!

    The tank is inside in my basement and has a very hollow sound when I tap on it. When I called the oil company a remark was made that "we have a ticket for delivery for you." so I'm hoping that this will be a quick fix and I can be on my merry way to the gym shortly.

    It wasn't the oil level that caused the problem because although it was low there was plenty in the tank. It turned out to be some small internal furnace part that failed. It's all fixed and the house is starting to heat up.

    I'm off to the gym for a delayed workout.

    oil heat is warm heat. the house i grew up in had oil. i remember the oil man coming and the smell of new oil from the truck. a warm house. :dreamy:

    heat pumps have no character.

    It puts the lotion in the basket?:eek:
    Never been in a house heated by oil. We have the basic gas forced air heaters out here in Colorado. Hot water heaters are the bomb though.
