Over the river and through the woods

I’m at my grandmother’s house in Pompano Beach, Florida for the weekend. I arrived yesterday morning and am leaving tomorrow afternoon. Let me tell you, it is hot here!

I did about 5 miles this morning and am not used to running in the heat at all. I had to take some walking breaks, although that was mostly due to their not being sidewalks at certain points along my route. I hate it when that happens. I do not feel comfortable running along the side of the road or in the grass. Is there a website that shows running routes and indicates whether or not there are sidewalks? Seriously, I think I’m on to something here if there isn’t. I use Gmap Pedometer or Map My Run to find routes but haven’t noticed if there is a feature that shows if there is a sidewalk. Anyway, I did my walk/run and took a nice, long shower.

I will be back in Atlanta tomorrow evening. I decided to do my long run on Monday since I have the day off. I’d much rather do it at home than do it here. Speaking of Monday off, I’m really thinking of scheduling a massage for myself. I have this sort of dull, nagging ache in my left shoulder/upper back. It comes and goes but it’s been bugging me for a while now. I think it’s probably from bad posture at work and using the mouse (I’m a lefty) all day. I just feel like I have a huge knot there that I can’t seem to get out. I need to think of a massage as a necessity sometimes and not just as an induldgence.

  1. woah, you use the mouse with your left hand? i’m completely left handed in every other aspect but with the mouse i MUST use my right. i think i was trained that way!

    also, my grandparents used to live in pompano beach, too.

  2. I’m actually an ambidextrous (I know I butchered the spelling of that) mouser. But I do prefer using my left hand. It’s funny though because I know a lot of lefties like you, Sarah, that use their right hand. I do use scissors with my right.
