If the miles behind me could be put into words before you, you would feel my efforts, my struggles, my desires. Most of all you would see my joy. Watch me from afar run the trails and hills and miles upon miles and you will see ...

Proof of my lack of training

So as you can see from the photos, and, no, I haven't changed the blog to a "do-it-yourself" site, I have actually been busy on the house. From the glory of 1970's decor enroute to a more modern look. More to follow.

up to lately

I'll post some pictures in a bit but essentially I've been tackling a project the way I would training for a race - all-encompassing.  I've been doing the dreaded bathroom renovation.  Of course I pick the worst time of year what with Christmas almost here.  I had dreams of being done before the holidays so as they could be enjoyed thoroughly.  Now I have visions of paint brushes dancing in my head because that's what I'll be doing while everyone's home over Christmas.  My thoughts were to be done before or soon after December 25th and then hit the training hard but it's going to be back to square one as I haven't done much of anything the last few weeks.  I've ridden to work and back a bunch but not much running.  I still have lingering pain on the top of my right foot and the arch is tender after short runs.  Due to the project I haven't been for an x-ray or really delved into thinking of what it could be.  Suffice to say I didn't run for three weeks after Italy and when I went for 30 minutes it was pretty sore afterwards.  Seems to be when I land on the heel it hurts the arch.  Must be a sign to stick with the work in the bathroom.
