Well, I feel good this weekend. I was able to run 10.2 miles on Saturday and 5.5 on Sunday. I have felt a little tightness in my hip and glutes, but NO PAIN!!!!! I am so happy about the no pain thing. I also spent a good part of the weekend studying for my promotion board next week. I am so excited and a lot scared. I really want to do well and put myself in a good position for promotion. If all goes well, I should see a promotion around October or November time frame. It would be nice to get it in December also, so Frank could be here for the ceremony. OK, I am putting the cart before the horse. My boss is gone all this next week and the schedule is slow, so I will be studying a lot at work. My board is on Friday.
Everything else is going good. The kids still don't have their rooms clean and they still don't listen. It is amazing what they think they can get away with while Dad is gone. They are finding that mom is not willing to do too much for them right now. I guess all of this is minor in the whole scope of things.
I am able to talk to Frank every day or every other day. I also get to see him on the webcam pretty often now. He is doing well and is staying very busy.
I don't have a major run calendar going right now. I am doing the 1/2 marathon on Fort Lewis in September and of course we have the San Francisco Marathon in October. I will probably sign up for more marathons as the weather cools. I don't like running in the heat of the day. Maybe I will add a few stars to my Maniac profile this next season.
Anyways, with all things as good as they could be, I am signing off after a positive, productive running week.
