Life | Lucy the English Bulldog


  • Lucy and I’ve shortly gotten adjusted to life with out Fred. I miss him tons, however it helps immensely that I’ve gotten common updates. Fred is prospering and that’s what makes all of it price it.

Oldie, however a goodie

  • It seems to be like I cannot be operating – not to mention racing – the Broad Avenue Run in 2 ½ weeks. I’ve had some aching across the spot by which I had a fairly extreme stress fracture seven years in the past. It’s probably a stress response – a precursor to a full-on stress fracture. Whereas I would be capable to run the race as a result of it’s largely an ache and never sharp ache, 10 miles of pounding shouldn’t be a wise thought – that’s how I wound up with a stress fracture all these years in the past within the first place. I’m bummed as a result of the race is a historic one in which you’ll just about solely achieve entry by way of the lottery (professionals and fundraisers are the exceptions, I feel); the percentages had been slim to be picked and but I used to be and now I can’t run it.
  • My objective is to be wholesome to run a Winery run in mid-Could; I ran it final 12 months and whereas I’d wish to be quicker this 12 months, that’s clearly not going to occur with any critical coaching on maintain. So, the power to run 4, pain-free miles will likely be my objective.
  • I signed up for a companion CrossFit competitors in New Jersey in early June; a good friend and I are partnering up for a Barbells for Bullies competitors. The group primarily helps pit bulls but additionally fundraises for all bullie breeds, so clearly it was a private trigger for me. I may care much less how I do. I’m in it for enjoyable. Really.
  • No actual trip this summer time; making an attempt onerous to economize to purchase a rental/home by November of 2019. I had hoped to purchase this November (my condominium lease is up every December), however I feel one other 18 months to economize is the smarter transfer, particularly contemplating I’ll want a brand new (used) automotive within the not-so-distant future and I’d wish to pay money for it.
  • Talking of saving cash, I began a brand new, part-time job this previous Friday. I’m working (very) part-time at a native vineyard storefront. It’s only a few hours a month – possibly as soon as every week, max. Clearly, I’m not in it completely for the cash, however it doesn’t damage, that’s for positive. I really like wine and mixed with the truth that it’s minimal hours, it’s a good match. I simply have to verify I don’t purchase extra wine than the cash I’m making from the job.
  • Lucy has her annual bodily subsequent month; we now have loads of work to do in 4 weeks to get her weight down…

    Yeah, all the things is presently a bit tight on Lucy…

And that’s current life in a nutshell.
