I'm not going to whine. Well, maybe just a little. Occasionally my low back gets all tight. I'm not sure if it's related to tight hams and glutes, or is cause, or is effect. Whatever. It's just really tight over the last couple days, and today especially.
Ran only 3 K, slowly, with an eye to getting warmed up enough to do some stretching and core afterward. That was so so. If I try to sit cross legged I will slowly keel over backwards. This does not bode well for yoga tomorrow.
In other news, I am being tempted to start/join/enter/compete/participate(whatever the verb is) in NaNoWriMo. If I'm reading this right, there are 2752 people in Calgary alone that are signed up to have a go at pounding out 50,000 words in a month. I could never be part of anything that requires total commitment, long and solitary hours doing something other people think is crazy. Could I?
We visited our friends G&G and played the train game on Monday. We've been playing it with them, and other people for a long, long time now. This is the North American version, which I'm most familiar with. That means I win about 1 in 4 games. Linda wins most of the rest. We also have the EuroRails version, and Linda wins that one almost all the time. She is a ferocious competitor, though having met her family as they "play" various games, I can understand it. Don't even THINK the word Yahtzee with Linda around. Or Scrabble. I have never, ever won at Scrabble playing Linda.
Here's the board game at the end of the game. I'm the blue line, if you were wondering.
