Running around

After my injury hiatus followed by enthusiastic holiday reading, training starting at the beginning seemed like a good idea. Now I'm at the end of the beginner 5k training, and doing okay. I'm not setting any land speed records, but since the real prize I'm heading for is "middle aged discipline," I'm doing great.

Next, speed work! Sprint until you want to throw up! So. Much. Fun.

Something else that came from discipline (and redoing until it was right)? That's right!! The ribbed sweater is done, done, done.

It's an "Action Sweater" (apologies to Mr. Izzard) -- I can run the obstacle course that's the yard:

I like how curvy it looks from the back. All in all, I'm really satisfied.

Jeez, you made it UP FROM SCRATCH. I just read back to find the very wonderful pattern.

(If this wasn't a family blog, I'd say some of the nasty words I've learned from my teenagers.)
