My run felt good, so once again I think I am ready for Sunday.

This afternoon an old friend gave me some disappointing news and that made me feel tired too. Maybe I'm reacting to the return of cold weather and the fact I have a 50k race in 4 days time.

The morning was nice and brisk and I had a good run to start the day. I just have to stay loose and in balance for the rest of the week.

I did run early and it was cold and very windy out, the day was cold and windy, but with lots of sunshine.
Spent a few hours chatting with friends and family in various parts of the world.

This afternoon is cool and rainy, it was strange because while walking home it had the distinct feel and smell of Autumn. Maybe it was just a Deja Vu moment.

Got my laundry done. Sorted out some old clothes, some for recycling. some for the bin.
It was also time for me to finally do my taxes, my last US ones for a while at least. I will get a small refund.
This afternoon watched the FA Cup 4th round replay between Arsenal and Cardiff. Eduardo made his comeback after being away recovering from a broken leg he suffered a year ago. He scored 2 goals and Arsenal won 4-0. Nice game to watch.

I did chat with my cousin in Croatia and found out that one of the people in my group on Facebook, was actually a neighbour in the village there.

Hey it's Valentines day! It's also FA Cup 5th round and in most of the games there were draws, so there will be replays.
Wolves continued their bad patch and lost at Burnley, they are still top of the Championship, just about.

I have been noticing that my computer keyboard as been acting a little funny lately. It is an old one I have been using for about 6 years. I have a new one that came with my computer that I bought about 18 months ago. So I decided to switch in the new one. Lo and behold everything is work much faster. First of all I think it is more compatible and also it's just more efficient.
Utpal is back from his trip ( he was in Bali ). He is majorly jet lagged but we did go out for a run this afternoon, though he mostly wanted to walk.

There is very strong wind out there this afternoon, but it is still quite mild.

Well this morning I woke up with a sore throat and during the day I was sneezing a lot, though I must say, it did seem to get a little better as the day went on. The fact that we are supposed to have fairly mild weather all week should help.
However this also happens to me when I am preparing for a race and since I have a 50k coming up in less than 3 weeks maybe that is the reason. Could it be psychosomatic or something my body is doing to slow me down a little.

I did a search on Facebook for people with the last name Jakovic and sent out friend invitations. So far I have about 15. I am interested to see how it goes.

My final note was; My running streak ended today
4 years 6 months 8 days.
I don't know why but that is what I wanted to post today.

I need to file my taxes and hopefully I will have the time to do that tomorrow.

Once again the Sun was shining when I left work this afternoon and the snow is already disappearing off the sidewalks. Maybe it will be gone by the weekend.
Tuesday, February 03, 2009
The forecast was for it to start raining last night then turn to snow later and accumulate about 1 to 2 inches. It did not rain and the snow did not start until after 9 this morning. As a result it has snowed all day and we have about 3 inches of fresh snow on the ground at the moment.
While out running this afternoon I was reminded of one run I had in Slovenia, it was nice.

I have not been watching the Super bowl the last couple of years, but decided to watch it last night. I thought it was a good game, was not too impressed by the adds. Glad it went down to the wire, when it had looked early on like it might be a blowout.

It's been almost 3 months since I went out to Shea stadium and quite a lot has changed. You can see from the photo that about 3/4 of it has now gone. While I was there taking photo's I met another gentleman doing the same. He got quite emotional when we talked about the history of the place and we took each other's photo's, with the stadium in the background. I ended up running about 11 miles. Meadow Lake was almost completely frozen with just a small section on one side where a few ducks were keeping it open. When I started out it was 1 or 2 degrees below freezing and as I finished my run it was 1 or 2 degrees above.
