Last night I really dodged a bullet. It was database-maintenance-weekend, which usually means I have to pay low-to-moderate attention to stuff from 6pm to 6am. This time I was trying something new, and it turns out I'd made a mistake. Luckily (happily oh my god whew) I caught it pretty quickly and it was fixable, but I ended up paying rapt, tense, stomach-tightening attention to stuff straight through the night except for 2 45-minute naps.
Round about 9am things had settled enough for me to go out for a very poky 6 miles. It still gets to the upper 80s or low 90s during the day, but we've had some dry air come down from heaven and this morning was just wonderful. I was relatively unsweaty after 6 miles. It was like happy-to-be-alive running, only today it was happy-I-didn't-totally-screw-up running.
I was supposed to run another 4 miles this afternoon, but I think I'll move it to tomorrow afternoon. I had a nap, and now I'm having a beer, and in a little while I'm actually going to go to a party. Wow. I haven't been to a party in months.
