I should be running right now

But I don't feel like it! It's just been one of those days. We had a few too many beverages little too much fun at our BBQ yesterday (which was re-located to my father-in-law's place at the last minute due to excessive construction activity next door... argh!) and I wasn't feeling too hot this morning. It was a long day at work, a long commute with more traffic than usual, an hour-long wait in the walk-in clinic for test results (everything is okay), a trip to the grocery store, and now I just want to sit my butt on the couch and do nothing! I should probably eat some dinner, too...

I'm technically in recovery mode before kicking off 5 in 5 (or maybe 6 in 5?) with the half marathon this Sunday so an extra rest day isn't going to kill me.

Not much else to report. I hope your Tuesday was better than mine, and if not, I hope you're vegging on the couch! At least we're one day closer to another weekend.

hmmm, Tuesday that seems more like a monday, the downside of a long weekend. Sounds like it was a good weekend, but glad you're allowing yourself the break, it's well deserved :) See you thursday!

You deserve the rest! I forgot that Ottawa was so soon. Are you trying to set yet another record in it or just enjoy the sites?

I hate traffic. Unfortunately I tend to get stuck in it often on my way home:( You have another half this weekend. You kill me.

Focus on the positive-- You got to hang out with friends-- have a few cocktails, eat some good food. You've been working hard and deserve it!
