First Day Back

Yesterday was my first day back. To running, that is. I’ve had some swelling and pain in my ankle that I just couldn’t shake for several weeks as I hobbled around the house.

Finally, I had a few pain-free days where I could get around reasonably well. I wore an old pair of running shoes with some great support and the pain disappeared. I guess the shoes I was wearing around the house were giving my much of the lingering trouble.

So yesterday I went for a run after about a month off and actually got in a sold two miles at a pretty good pace. I’ll take it easy and see how my ankle responds all week but I expect to get back to my normal mileage next week which is a nice change.

The weather was great for a run today – very mild for Alabama. I didn’t arrive home feeling like I’d gone for a swim instead of a run.

Today, young cat, Minou, is off to the vet for THE surgery. He was a foundling stray as many remember with part of his ear missing. We don’t need more stray cats in the area than we already do (no thanks to people dumping pets) so he gets the trip. He’ll be back and no worse for the wear in a few days. Then he gets put to work hunting all the chipmunks and field mice in the area.

I’m working hard on all my writing projects as mentioned over the last few weeks. I’ll share more about print on Thursday but I’m making progress on my new, top-secret novels as well as beginning work on some short stories that will make the rounds to some pro and semi-pro markets.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. The White Arrow is selling well and just got a nice 5-star review over on Amazon and has started getting several ratings over on Goodreads. That’s quite a nice start. Thanks again to all the readers!

That’s all for today. There’s just too much going on with writing to linger here much longer. Thanks for stopping by today, please leave you thoughts in the comments section below and I’ll get back to you.
