I did spend most of the week in Wisconsin, but I started it in Iowa, so I'll count it. There were only two work days this past week, which were both a rush to get things done. I should write a blog post about the word rush sometime. Anytime I feel myself rushing I take a step back, because that's how accidents happen. Regardless, it was a pretty productive two days.
I drove the Honda Insight to my parents house and back, which I'll set up a blog post about tomorrow.
Spending four days with my family was quite nice. Everyone is doing well. I mean I knew that of course, we talk, text, and email plenty. We watched a couple movies, played some cards, went to church twice for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I think I speak for all of us when I say we slept more too. At least my sister and I slept more than normal. While I could go into what presents I received and those I gave, it seems very materialistic to write about it, as if I would be judging the gifts. It was good, I received more nice things than I need and I gave a couple things that will certainly be enjoyed.
Somehow I managed to run 20 miles over five days. Early in the week I felt like I tweaked my left peroneal tendon which had hurt before so I took an unplanned day off and kept the runs under five miles. However I have been doing a number of foot and ankle exercises, and some ankle massage, and I think that it's all coming together. Soon enough I expect to be healthy. I'm in the fragile part of an injury recovery. That is to say, I think it's healthy, I don't feel any pain, and I'm ramping up my normal training again, but I do feel a weakness in the area. Whether the weakness is the fact I don't normally work the muscle, or perhaps the actual super compensation muscle building, or even the surrounding area, I don't know.
It was a good week, a restful week.
