Feeling Virtuous

Ah! What a day! I am feeling quite good about myself today. I have accomplished a lot (something I don't often do).

Today, first I woke up early in order to clean the livingroom. Unfortunately, while doing this, I accidently broke the globe to an old oil lamp. However, after cleaning up the glass (and blood from my cut up toe) I returned to cleaning, and it now looks beautiful. And, having to vacuum up glass made me do a much more thorough job.

Other than that I took Hans to work, went to the post office, got a few groceries, prepared and packed a dinner, called a few clients, set my business up to accept credit cards, took Cody to the park, taught a lesson, had dinner with Hans (unfortunately not what I packed, we did eat out), and ran a show (last weekend of Annie). That was quite a packed day.

I have to say, though, my favorite part of the day was the park. Cody and I went to the park, and I decided to take him jogging on a trail. I'm really trying to get back into shape and build up my endurance, and I really needed to wear out Cody, so I figured this would be a great option. It really was. I think we both had fun running. Let's put it this way, it was more fun than running on a treadmill. Plus, I was able to run with my best friend!!!! This actually leads me to a few questions.

1) Does anyone have any good tips for building endurance? or Does anyone have a good running plan for beginners?

2) Does anyone know of any other exercises that will help when running (weight training, stretches, etc.)
