I ended up doing 1:10 on road and trail with a friend yesterday evening. Don't recall the distance, have to download from my Garmin.

Rest day for me today, as I'm meeting up with some folks to go to the Christmas Craft fair (I won't last very long there - I love looking at the stuff, but get bored/hot/tired rather quickly at these things) and then drinks and dinner. :)

In unrelated news, I woke up this morning and decided my hair was annoying me so I cut it.

Took a long lunch today and had ART, laser treatment, and RMT - all working on this *!*!*!* shoulder :roll: I'm glad to say it is finally getting better. Not quite 100% but a whole lot better than the pain of the last couple of weeks.
On my way home from work I went via the beach and ran 5 kms there.
TGIF for sure!
