Current Thoughts without a Current Update

One of my current thoughts is about running. I joined a community education class called "Couch to 5k." Ha! I don't think I have been hanging out on my couch much, but since I started dating S (Feb. 2007), I have hardly run or done any kind of exercise at all. (Nevermind all that has happened since then!) Anyway, S has agreed to watch little Boo while I run 3 times a week and try to find some other kind of non-jolting exercise for 3 other days a week. So far, I have been doing pretty well in the class. In fact, I have already finished the "canned" running program!

I got an email from my teacher today, who said: "You are much more advanced than everyone else." In other words: "You should not have signed up for this class!"? Well, it just so happens that, as a sports-induced asthmatic, I can build up quite a bit of endurance, but I am painfully slow. I used to run for an hour on most days back in 2006, and I would get in about 5 miles, if that gives you any idea how slow I am. As it is, I have gone jogging with a number of people who have claimed to be slow and NONE of them have EVER been slower than me! So that should give you an idea of how "advanced" I am! I do really enjoy running though. Now my teacher is preparing a specific program for me to do "speed work" and the like. I think that will be VERY challenging for me.

On another note, I am currently marvelling at how much faster the songs on Boo's high seat toy go, now that I have changed the batteries. Ha! I have gotten so used to singing along slowly that it is now quite a challenge to keep up with the notes. :) And Boo is very entertained by my singing variations of his name to all of his tunes. I better get my tongue moving faster here!

As to what is REALLY on my mind (Boo's upcoming surgery)...I decline to write about it at the moment. I will update on this sometime soon, either here or on his carepage. Honestly, I have just repeated everything about it to so many different doctors and therapists lately that I just don't feel like typing it all out. Don't worry, it is not too serious, nor is it too soon (May 11, so far). I hope you all are well!

Good work in your running class! By the way, I think you were always faster than me when we ran together. So feel good about that.
