National disaster at my house this morning. Only about 1 T of oatmeal! I go thru oatmeal faster than Hugh Hefner goes thru girlfriends. Not a good way to start the day. So I mixed every little crumb into some yogurt with a fresh peach and some almonds. It was good. The dumb thing is I went to the store last night to pick up a few things and oatmeal was on the list. I think I must be a real blonde or the hair dye is rubbing off!
Nobody to run with this morning. I decided to do a interval run on the treadmill at the Y. It went well. I got in a quick 3.5 miles of fast/slow and some hills for good measure. Hopefully tomorrow I will be back outside for a long run. Just have to track down some unsuspecting soul and convince them a long run is really good for you at 5am on a Saturday. Who needs to sleep in anyway??
Last nights training meeting was good. Think I will sign up for it. It's 18 weeks long. They will do track work outs, week day runs and a long run on Saturday. They plan to have monthly speakers on things like nutrition, avoiding injuries, proper fit of shoes and all things running. On the longer runs they plan to have water/gatorade stops. I think I was the oldest person there. Everyone else looked in their 20's or 30's. Yikes. They are having one more info meeting before they start, so maybe some other old fart will sign up.
Time to get on with this oatmealess day! Lets make the most of it!
