I ran 3 miles again yesterday. Again, not very fast, just more of a light jog, but I maintained it for 3 miles, and could have gone further. I didn't because it's not in the plan that I'm following. Well, ok, I did 3.1 miles to make it a 5k, but still...

I'm definitely on an upswing with the running. It's not easy, but neither is it impossible, and I'm feeling REALLY good afterward. I need to run 1.5-2 miles tomorrow to stay on target. Technically, the plan has me doing 1.5 miles today, but it's not going to work schedulewise. At any rate, I think a day of rest is probably not a bad idea here. Then on Saturday, I need to run 3.5 miles, and that'll be the week.

If I can keep this up, I really think I'm going to start seeing some better weight loss in the near future.

Tonight, we have tickets to the first Capitals playoff game against the Maple Leafs. We're in the 200 section. By coincidence, we're one row in front of Leah and Chris, which is all kinds of awesome. We're trying out a new place called The Smith in Chinatown that used to be a McCormick & Schmick's, but hopefully, the new place will be much better. I'm not doing a playoff beard this time around because 1. I really hate wearing facial hair of any kind, and 2. I'm not superstitious. Me growing facial hair isn't going to do anything to help the caps, and I don't need to look like a bum for people to know I like hockey. Too many people already think I'm way more of a fanatic about it than I am. Case in point, last night, Lisa was flipping between 3 playoff games while I was re-watching Twin Peaks on my ipad in preparation for the new series coming up on Showtime. I forgot how much of a crush I had on Sheryl Lee and Sherilyn Fenn back in those days. Oh, and Joan Chen...anyway, the point is, unless the Capitals are playing, and playing live for that matter, I'm not that interested in watching the game. By and large, I'm not really a sports fanatic, and probably wouldn't give a crap about the Capitals if I weren't married to Lisa. She got me interested, and I do very much get into the games, but I can't watch it all the time. I get bored too easily. Also, I'm not as invested in the playoffs as I used to be because the Caps have a bad habit of choking in the first or second round. In all likelihood, we'll face the Penguins in the second round, and we never seem to do well against them in the playoffs. Maybe this year will be different. I am always hopeful.

I've also been pleased with how quickly endurance comes back after not running for a while. I need to get serious about it as I'd like to drop a good 10 lbs before summer.

Good job with the running!

Also, good luck with the hockey match! I hope it'll be a great match, and that you'll have a good time at the game.

It's playoff hockey and I didn't even notice. lol. Neither did my husband. I guess we're not quite the fans we once were.
