It was cold during my 5am run this morning, but with no snow I could still go outside to run! It was 15 degrees Farenheit (-10 degrees Celcius). I feel glad I did it!
Today, when the alarm went off, I was still very tired. I had nightmares during my sleep. Fortunately, they were not remaining in my mind and I could not recall what they were about. I have nightmares occasionally as I suspect we all do occasionally.
We went to a museum yesterday to see a craft show and to see the museum and one of the new interactive parts of the exhibit had a "jam" room with guitars, drums, and a keyboard. It was near the end of the day when we got to that exhibit. I am proficient at clarinets and saxophones, but only can noodle one or two songs on the guitar or keyboard. But we jammed along together and had a lot of fun. I even tried a bass guitar which I have never played before. Surprisingly, it was easier to figure out the basics than a regular guitar! It was a lot of fun! I ended up getting a blister on my thumb from strumming, but it was worth it to have the fun of trying them all out. I am thinking I need to bring more music back into my and my family's lives.
I do not know what to say, do, or think. My stomach hurts, and I literally feel like I could vomit.
I am not sure if I am wrong or not so I am asking for opinions. I happen to not really be fond of the various electronic games that damn near everyone plays all the time, so maybe I am too sensitive, or maybe I am correct in my feelings. I really do not know at the moment:
It was really pleasantly warm today at 5 am for my 4 miles. It was 59 degrees! It was raining a bit, but that wasn't too bad as I usually am completely soaked in sweat regardless when I am finished anyway so it did not feel that different. My dog despises rain, however, so it was a solo this morning. Since I ran 4 miles every day in October, that meant when I looked at the log I keep, I had ran 124 miles that month, which when I thought about it was surprisingly nice to see!
