The Casa Xntrix has been repaired. They finished up the last of the stucco work today, and I followed that up with a bunch of painting, and cleaning up of their mess. Have a few more things to do outside, but in general, the outside of the house is squared away. Two of my near bye residents are also experiencing the same problem I had, and have contracted to get their houses either partially or fully re-stuccoed. Those jobs and the new I-Hop are gonna make a good christmas for Lopez plasterers.
Since the stucco folks were here the last two mornings at 7:30 playing that polish christmas music mexican music and blocking the driveway with trucks, I ended up running the race sunday, a longer run yesterday, and a shorter easy day today for three run days in a row. So, NOW I will hit the gym tomorrow and friday, and run short on thursday, in preparation for my race saturday. Had a few minor sore spots monday after the race, but feel pretty normal today. So, 10K of crazy hard trail will be in the cards on saturday.....

Just completed 40 years of running and racing distances from 1500 meters to 50 miles. After 4 back surgeries, surgeries to both feet, having my knee and ankle broken after being hit by a truck, and having had meniscus surgery in 2011, I have limited my competitive running to races I can complete in an hour or less. I think I have used up all 9 of my running lives, so I am hoping to stay injury free for a few more years! My goal now is to try and run 4 days a week with two days of quality work, and to supplement that with three days a week of weights and bike intervals at the gym. The Combination of Year/Kilometers (40 plus years and over 110,000 kilometers) have enjoyed their full effect on me orthopaedically.
