1. The half marathon didn't leave me with injuries, just some standard muscle aches, especially the quads. On Monday night, I had a cramp on my calves when I stretched in bed half-asleep. Ouch! I had difficulty walking, so instead of running that morning, I did yoga. It felt so good and much better!
Well, to be honest, I was tired and lazy too so it was very easy to talk myself out of that run.
2. The boyfriend and I used to live in Louisiana before our move to Arkansas. We still have a house there. Earlier this week, he received a call from our neighbor to inform us that a water pipe has busted in the house and the house is, well, pretty much flooded. Boyfriend left for Louisiana right after that phone call and yesterday, I drove down to deliver tool boxes and extra change of clothes and to check out the damage. That's home. My home. It's a small humble house but everything's so right about it. I didn't get back to Arkansas until wee hours in the morning and was just too tired to get up to go run.
