Managed to avoid running for yet another day. I think it takes almost as much willpower to take a week off as it does to train hard. I did 5.25 miles on the elipticccl device and walked another mile on the treadmill at 4.2 mph and 5 % elevation.

Ann and I are going out to dinner tonight. Our regular babysitter grew up and got a career and we haven't found a replacement. But my mother-in law is in town so we're taking advantage of that. It's been a long, long time since we had a date.
