Lazy Saturday

Hi, friends. As you can read from the title, I have done a whole lot of Jack Squat today. I was able to get in a good three and a quarter mile run yesterday. That is officially the furthest distance I have run barefoot to date. My feet and legs did fine. I did get a little soreness in both Achilles and my right ankle, which is why I have decided to take today off.

20170906_185644It has been a mostly uneventful day. Last Wednesday I discovered that there was a huge hornet’s nest on the back eave of our house. There must have been dozens of the frickers in it. It has been a miracle that we haven’t been stung to death. As much as I hate to kill things, these creatures are simply too dangerous to leave be. So, I reluctantly planned my assault. Following General Tzu’s advice of “attacking my enemy’s weakness,” I decided to use poison on them first thing this morning, while they were still near paralyzed┬áby the cooler temperature. The attack was swift and effective. They went down with no resistance.

And that was the most exciting thing to happen today. We do have a Tennessee Vols football game to watch this evening. The folks around these parts take college football very seriously. It is almost a religious experience for a lot of my neighbors and my wife. I enjoy it somewhat, but what I really love is watching Denice get so excited about it. She loves her sports.

Last week I did terrible with my eating. I did manage to keep it to one meal a day, and that at least kept┬áme from gaining weight. Next week I am going to do much better. I have a good eating and exercise plan and have every intention to execute it flawlessly. I really need to get my weight down. There’s a reason why you don’t see a lot of fat runners.

If you would like to help keep me honest with my training, follow me on Twitter. If I’m doing what I’m supposed to, you should see a tweet every day that says I ran at least one mile. If I didn’t, feel free to call my lazy ass out.

Till next time.
