So I took Monday and Tuesday off from exercise, got a lot of work done and was able to catch up with old friends for dinner each night. Lots of fun. I have to admit it was tough to get up and run this morning, but once I got started I felt pretty good. Today the intervals went up to 3 minutes and 5 minutes. I was struggling at the end of the last 5 minute run, but I got through them all. No pain during the run, but the knee is sore again. Just sat here in the hotel room for 30 minutes with ice on my knee, now I'm into the shower and off to the office.
Seems like the hurricane is going to miss Florida, so I'll be able to get out of here ok tomorrow night. I was on the phone with a couple of people back at the office in Georgia yesterday when the earthquake hit. They all noticed the building moving and were a bit freaked out, but when I called my wife, she and the kids hadn't felt anything. Pretty crazy to have a quake that big on the east coast. The movement was actually really shallow, so that's why it was felt so far away. The paranoid conspiracy theory part of my mind wonders if there was some type of experiment gone awry at some secret government laboratory, but I left my tin foil hat at home, so that thought will be quickly erased by the mind control satellites.
If all things go well, I'll be home Thursday night and will run again Friday and Sunday. Saturday will be our first soccer practice. Oh, and my dad and step-mom are coming to visit this weekend too. Keeping busy!
