Thursday run

So, I haven't been getting in the runs I wanted to. Tuesday night was crazy, Wednesday night the family goes to church and has cheap food (and fellowship for the non-atheists in the family – namely everyone but me). Marlana had me go grocery shopping after that while she and the kids did the fellowship thing. No running that night.

Thursday, I got to go for a short jog after I got home. It ended up only being 20 minutes because I had to take our trash to the dump (ah, the joys of living in the country) after Marlana got home with the SUV with trailer hookup. I maybe got ¾ of a mile in.

I plan on getting home relatively early tonight so I should be able to go for a run. We'll see, though. I have a ton of work to do and I've been procrastinating all week.

I've also been thinking about posting rebuttals to a column in a trade newspaper I get. This guy is a fool about technology and he's supposed to be the expert. It's behind a paywall so I have to think about if I want to break that paywall (copy and paste his column) or what. We'll see. That's just one more thing that I don't have time for.

My wife got on my case about spending too much time plugged in to headphones or the computer, so we'll see about that, too.

First run of 2009

I woke up in the middle of the night with a horrible charley horse so I thought, "this will be great - I can get out of my first run that I blogged about here yesterday." Then it felt better throughout the day, so I went for a jog while my wife slept and the kids played. I put my run up on Apparently I did better than I thought - 4 miles, 11 minute pace.

I broke the rules pretty solidly from the ideas I was sent by Raulgonemobile. Oh well. I plan on running tomorrow depending on how sore I am from today's excursion.

Brain dump

So, these are things that are like Twitter posts or Facebook status updates but I have too many to really utilize the service efficiently.

  • They took away coffee cups at work. O RLY?
  • I'm going running tomorrow. Considering that I'm getting to that point where I have to breathe hard just to move about, I'm not optimistic. Somebody's gotta keep me to task. 
  • Overheard at my call center job: "If you want this done right, you'll stay on the phone with me. Otherwise, another customer comes in." I love high quality customer service.
  • Overheard talking to a customer: "Did you hear what I asked you? DID YOU HEAR ME?" Way to treat the customer.
I thought I had more than this but I don't.

Oh well.
