    I've added Let the Great World Spin to my to-read list.
  4. December 2020 in review! Total mileage for the month: 327.3 Nov. 30-Dec. 6: 75.1 Dec. 7-13: 70.7 Dec. 14-20: 73.8 Dec. 21-27: 77.4 Dec. 28-Jan. 3: projected at 72 Races: None this month, but I think there will be some 2021 racing!

I didn't time anything involved in this but my average for the entire run was 7:33. De

  8. I was working on my December post and realized that I never posted November here. And I can't let Loopville die!

    Odd October

    "And Then There Were None" was the first Agatha Christie I've read, but I agree it was timeless! And, I guess the year isn't over yet (for either of us)...

    They do, but the most frustrating part of my current issue is that it's not even an injury; it's irritation based on the shape of my hip bones - the same hip bones I've run with for most of my life without even knowing I had an impingement. Also I have the malformation in both sides but pain only in the left. Why it popped up is anyone's guess, and while it's nice having physicians tell you that you did nothing to cause it, it also makes it much more difficult to treat, but I am trying. Sigh. Thanks for the well wishes!

Total mileage for the month: 220.2 Sep. 28-Oct. 4: 67.8 Oct. 5-11: 81.1 Oct. 12-18: 69.1 Oct. 19-25: 21.8 Oct. 26-Nov. 1: 1 (it was a pain-free mile - I'm just being super cautious and waiting until Monday, Nov. 2 to truly try to start back because I cannot need 4 months off again) Yes, I look odd and don't care! Races: I'm pretty sure 2020 is going to remain the year that I ran only one actual race (the bronchit

    You have such an amazing attitude!!
  13. I asked her multiple times if she would instead go backwards and turn 11, but she kept saying no.
  14. My library had books 1-11 of that series and then I read the final 2 as ebooks. I also hope your knee starts behaving!

I strained my hamstring between lifting on Aug. 27 and my Aug. 28 tempo run, and 3 days of easy running wasn
  16. Since I start every week day run at 5:00-5:30 a.m., it is really not a big deal!

    Hey, look. I'm running.

    Eh, cross-training is pretty worthless. 😉
  18. The idea to run a 20k time trial started because I was registered for the Dam to DSM 20k race. I'd entered long before it rescheduled then turned virtual (before COVID and even before my hip issue!). The virtual race window was August 31 through September 7 and I planned to run a hard 20k on September 5, but due to being overly cautious with a hamstring I tweaked lifting I ended up just running an easy 20k that day. The hammy was back to 100% just a few days later, and for some reason I still wanted to run a 20k, so Christian and I both asked our coaches to schedule it on Friday, September

    This painting stuff sounds exhausting.

    Haha, I love finding those perfect phone setting spots. Most of mine are taken with my phone in a little nook where you put your hand to open the hatch back of my car.
