Droid X

I love my Droid X! I find I'm not on my laptop as much now, though. My Droid X is my mini computer and there are only a few things that my Droid can't do. For some reason, I can't create a post here on my Droid X. I'm hoping that the 2.2 update will fix that issue. I also can't view some Youtube videos and that too should be fixed with the update.

Check out the Droid X, although I read that they are backordered until August 4.

Sunday, July 18, 2010 I may not be running my first 1/2 marathon in September. The Rock 'n Roll is set for Labor Day weekend and so is my husband's 30 year high school reunion.

I found this out after I'd already registered, paid and started training. So, my husband thought that my run was more important and his high school reunion and wanted to be there while I ran my first 1/2. Sweet man, huh?

On my birthday, on our nice romantic walk on the beach, we talked about his reunion and my run. I decided that his reunion is much more important than the run. Half marathons are scheduled many times a year. If not this one, then another and I told that to my husband. So, I think we are going to the reunion.

I'll keep you posted...

Yesterday's run....
....was not good. I did only 4 miles and it was not an easy run. It was about 85 degrees out, but felt hotter because of the humidity. I really needed to start earlier. As it turned out, I started my run at 8am after not sleeping well. I've not been sleeping well lately either. Menopause? I think that is part of it. I was way too tired to run tonight too and tomorrow we are supposed to get thunder showers. I may be running on the treadmill this week. I'm hoping that this weekend I'll be able to break through the 6 mile mark. The route to the beach was nicer than running a circle around the neighborhood. It's nice to have the beach as my destination, but it's all in my head and I know it. I need to not think about breaking through the 6 mile mark. It makes it sound like it is a hard thing to do, which in turn I believe and that makes it harder then it has to be.

Six Mile Run...
The farthest I've run is in an 8K earlier this year. I find myself not looking forward to the six mile run that I have scheduled in my training. It was scheduled for this morning, but because I missed a run this week and ran Monday and yesterday, running 6 miles today didn't seem like a good idea. I've pushed it out to tomorrow and hopefully the thunder showers that were expected today, will not push out to tomorrow also. That would mean 6 miles on the treadmill, which would be very boring! I need a nice small flat screen TV on the wall in front of my treadmill. I wonder if there are running DVDs that have nice outside scenery that I would see on a country or city run. That would be cool. I have talked about wanting a small flat screen just for this purpose and my birthday is on Wednesday, so we'll see.

I'm hoping once I push through this 6 miles, that I'll see that it's not as bad as I'm anticipating. It would be nice to be on a more scenic run, so I'm thinking that I'll run to the beach like last weekend. That's 5 miles, then I'll run a mile along the beach. Maybe with the ocean view during the sixth mile, I won't think about how I've never run more than 5 miles before.

I just need to push through.

New vs. in blogger editors...

I've not blogged for a while and when I decide to blog, my editor remained in thinking mode with it's circling thinker swirling around. I went to blogger help and saw that there is an updated editor. I seem to have already it checked to use it, although, I don't remember opting for it. I changed the setting to use the old editor, and here I am able to create a blog once again.

It is amazing the anger I read in one second try post to the help area. I'm mean...get a life! You know, this
is a free service. I do think that someone should get back to the woman. I don't exactly know if it's a woman, but in the part that I read, it sounded like a woman.

So, you may ask, what does a woman sound like. Actually, it depends on my mood. If I had read that same post yesterday, I may have thought it a man's post. It's all perception. I think I'll answer her...or and suggest using the old editor until the new one is fixed.

I actually like the old editor...why change it??
See ya...
