Misc. stuff

Seems like I have a lot to talk about this morning.

First, I think I figured out what happened to my ankle. After the track workout last Sunday, Amber and I did some drills barefoot on the football field - the artificial turf feels really cool on your feet. Butt kickers, high knees, strides and crossovers. I think those crossovers - where you skittle sideways, alternating leg-in-front, leg-in-back - I think all that twisting did something to my left ankle. Fortunately, it feels fine when running forward. Maybe I'll get to rest it one of these days...

I won something! I answered some trivia questions over at Xenia's blog, and apparently got them all right (thanks, Google.) Full disclosure, though - I work in a library, and while I'm not currently a Reference Librarian (I'm a cataloger now) I have almost 10 years of search training and experience. Compete with that! Uh, anyway, apparently I'll be receiving a Popener (Papal bottle opener.) I kind of excited - the last time I won something was in Pinewood Derby in Cub Scouts, I think...

Oh, I ran this morning - 60 minutes. 9:00 miles. Kicked up the pace incrementally over the last 10 minutes, to 8:00, 7:30, and 7:00. Still trying to give myself some "dig at the end" power. Listened to audiobook, watched Sportscenter. Boring basketball and hockey right now.

Tsk. Unfair advantage. Maybe I should start handicapping these quizzes.

Glad I made your day. Have a good weekend.

Ha ha! Cool! Winning stuff rocks! Although I have complete faith that you had absolute NO problem finding the answers, of course. :)

I'm really sorry that you hurt your ankle while working out with me- after this next week you can rest it though!

Excellent job on the pace! You rock. Good luck with the ankle. :D
