A view from my side.
This week was a simple week. I had the week off and just took it easy. One of my errands was to go sofa/love seat hunting. Mine is a stereotypical male apartment right now, decorated in true minimalist style. The living room? The TV and sound system, of course. And seats for two. A recliner and a “dorm chair.” I do have a coffee table in front of the chairs and a matching end table in between them. And a lamp. Other than that…yeah, not so much.
But, no luck in the furniture department and with the season about to kick in, I won’t really care. Still, it would have been nice. Who knew it could be so complicated? Then, I remembered…the last time I made such a purchase, I had help from a lady friend. I called one, but she was out of town. I figure, without an outside opinion, I might end up with something…well…something “different.” So, that’s one I can safely put off till December. I’d kinda like something similar to what’s in the photo here, but well…I’m not really sure it works. (But seriously, what do you think?)
The only other thing I really wanted to do this week was get 5 runs in. I didn’t really care how far, I just wanted to be able to get back to a 5 runs a week schedule. I have been traveling quite a bit lately and while I did run while out of town, I’m back now and wanted to get back into the groove. Happily I can report I accomplished that goal. 5 simple runs roughly totaling about 23 miles. The temps were cooperative and I only had to deal with the rain once.
Team Camp starts Monday and then practice takes off in full swing the week after that. We open in 3 weeks with a tournament. Then slide into league play, hit a couple of more tournaments and end up at State Cup in November. Post season, well that depends on a number of factors that will become apparent as the season progresses. Since this was the last week before all of that starts, I thought I’d spend it focused on Living Room Furniture and 5 Simple Runs.
