This week was the 10th week of 2018. A bit of a grind; nothing really special to report.

I was able to get up at 5am for 5 of the seven days, but discipline deteriorated by the end of the week. Life is hard… mkay.


For the second week in a row I ran all seven days right away in the morning. One day I went 0.16 miles, but I showed up so I’m still counting it.

Mid-week I was concerned about running too frequently. I was overly tired, but I believed from stress and poor sleep. Taking a break from running would only exasperate that. After doing some research and getting this awesome response from twitter, I decided to keep going. As long as I take it slow and monitor for injuries, I should be ok to run every day.


Meet Ups

On Saturday morning I drove to Tysons for the NoVA Linux Users Group and it was everything I hoped it would be. The topic was AWS Cloud Formation and it was very in depth Next one will be on my birthday, so I may have to miss it. They will be discussing security, so I’m hoping I can go. I hope to be a regular.
