The blog definitely fell down the rabbit hole while I made sure I was healthy enough for Pirates, Week 2. Our shows went well, and it was a lot of fun even when it illustrated exactly how overscheduled I am.
Saturday was our final show, a matinee immediately followed by strike. I left strike (with the unloading of the truck left) at about 10 p.m., but we had a ton of people and had made pretty good time. Part of me wishes I had stayed, but I had a race the next day.
Sunday was the Somerville Jingle Bell Run, a short 5K loop that I will run again when I run Ras na hEireann in March. I haven't really done much training with the show schedule completely sidelining my sleep schedule, but it wasn't bad at all. My pace was 11:44, and I was running with my bag over my shoulder. I could have run faster, but I was mostly concentrating on finishing well and in good condition. A group of us went to Sally O'Briens for brunchy goodness.
Monday, I spent the day at home. I was supposed to be knitting, but mostly I sat around and read some books. I finished Sanctuary (by Mercedes Lackey) and reread Trickster's Choice and a random graphic novel. Of course, I started another book this morning: As I Lay Dying. Quite a different choice from the other books.
Tonight I'll be knitting up a storm. I have a toe and a complete sock left for the sock gifts, and then I can go back to knitting my FIL's scarf. I'm about 20 percent of the way done (a bit under that, but not by much), and I don't want to take too long a break on the project. I am finally getting used to the rhythm of the project and don't want to lose that!
