I spent Monday working on a few back end pieces of this blog. I did a couple of hours of work, making sure that each and every post was in a category. After that was done I started making sure each and every post had at least one tag. I have over 1,400 posts so this took the majority of my time last evening. I kept thinking I should be writing but I wanted to finish. I did not. I managed to get totally through 57 of 71 pages of posts. I will work on finishing off those last pages tonight.
All that work is part of the 28 Day Blog Challenge I last wrote about. I am also in a plank on five out of seven days of each week from February 4th until March 4th. I used to participate in the Twitter #plankaday. When I started that challenge, I was managing a one minute plank. It was not pretty but it was getting done. Yesterday’s and today’s planks were only 45 seconds. I know I will get to those one minute planks again and am hoping to up my time in plank to two minutes or two minutes and a half.
On top of all this, I haven’t run all miles I am supposed to run since last Thursday. Last Friday was a rest day which was good as I had a lot of appointments and other items to do. Saturday I managed to get in five of my eight scheduled miles. It was very cold outside so I opted to run inside. My calf muscle started to bother me. I could barely walk when I was done. I didn’t run my scheduled ten mile long run on Sunday. Monday, I did manage to walk three miles. Today, though, I was scheduled for four miles and didn’t get it in as I was busy at the high school with a fruit delivery. While helping to carry someone’s fruit order out, my sore muscle felt even worse for some reason. I was not carrying anything very heavy. It was dark when I got home. I opted to not run four today.
My life is getting back to normal. I will run tomorrow. I will finish up the day four piece of the blog challenge. I will manage, before March 4th, to do a two minute and a half plank.
