I did a crappy three mile-ish run. The first 2.2 miles were good, I did them in 17.7 minutes. And then I got a stitch in my ribs to end all stitches. It was more ventral than the usual side stitches and didn’t go away until I had walked about a quarter mile. There was also construction and a hint of rain that kept me from my usual four mile route. The weather is making my hands hurt. But my back feels better than it has since last Tuesday. Guess the run served its primary function.
Called Oma this morning to see how she was. She seemed to be in pretty good spirits, actually. We talked a good long while. The stress test okayed her for bypass surgery tomorrow morning. My brother called before I went out for my run to commiserate about being laid off from his job. In retrospect, he wishes he hadn’t moved to a place that required a year lease. Huh.
Competitive league may not happen for me, not due to being pushed out by lots of strong female players, but because there aren’t enough women playing. As of Sunday night, there were four of us, and Sharon dropped after hearing that. I have to accept the fact that I will never be able to predict the habits of the females of the species. Need to update PHX-ations pages. Keith again mentioned me taking over some of the VOTS html duties. We’ll see how that works out.
Yesterday, I cleaned up the apartment a bit, except for dishes, and continued work on the wiki. Will probably do the same today, maybe with some Rifts reading / Folly-giant-killing mixed in. If I get kinda ahead on the wiki. I’m not sure about working on a manuscript in wiki form, but I really shouldn’t be afraid of such changes.
