CCM Diary: A Break from All Your Worries Sure Would Help a Lot

A bunny sighting would be a good omen for this weekend.  Sadly, it’s been quite a while since I’ve had a bunny run.  I went out early this morning with the hope of seeing one, but to no avail.  Maybe on Friday….

My first two miles this morning were at marathon pace before I slowed down a little for the last two.  I was pleased that I managed to hit my goal pace for once.  I probably should have run slower, but if I can’t recover from two miles at MP there’s no way I’ll be able to do 26 on Sunday.

My neck is feeling better.  There’s still some discomfort, especially toward the end of a night in bed, but it’s receding into the background noise of all my other chronic aches.

As the race approaches, all kinds of things are wrapping up.  Last night I finally worked my way through the last episode of “Cheers”.  I like to have Netflix on (no commercials!) when I’m stretching and doing self-massage.  When Ruth and I aren’t watching anything in particular, I don’t want to think about what to choose.  I’ve been using “Cheers” as my default show.  Each episode is a little over 20 minutes, so one show is long enough for my stretching routine.  If I’m working the foam roller (or goofing off) it takes two to get everything done.

“Cheers” was an ideal choice.  It’s mindless without being horrible (except for the last season), and since there are 275 episodes, it lasted for months.  Before “Cheers”, I was using “The Dick Van Dyke Show”.  Now I need to find another show.  Any ideas?
