Got up early to go running this a.m. Ran the whole track (which is about 1.3 or 1.4 miles) without stopping to walk, which is a first for me. Then did a second run, which was part walking, part running, and which included part of the detour into the woods.
Then I came home, showered, ate four scrambled eggs, took a quick nap, then went to the 1pm karate class. Then I came home, showered, ate some pasta and ice cream, and took a longer nap.
Now I've got some writin' to do.................
