Runs on Coffee
- Jan 5, 2009
Having now tried both flavors of milk at Galaxy's Edge, I am willing to offer my reviews if people want my take.They aren’t going to want to go so I’m not going to make them walk, and hopefully the promise of colored milk for breakfast will win me a little bit of grace.
Obviously I'm biased, but I think this is the better new expansion to get previews to experience.I’m so excited! I missed out on the Pandora and Toy Story Land previews.
Will do! How many miles? Today’s 3.5 EA I ran outside and no swelling or stitches pulling. I also went to the gym and did a 66 minute back and bicep routine with no issues either.Sounds like a tough procedure. Hang in there. I'd consider dropping the 4x1 on Tues to an easy day as well.
I hope your incision/hole/whatever you call it starts feeling much better soon! That's kind of freaky, honestly.08/05/2019 - 08/11/2019
My watch died at 3.02 miles. I was doing 1 mile laps around the neighborhood so I finished the last lap with no idea of my pace.
- Plan: 4mi @ EA 11:44
- Actual: 4mi @ ???
- Splits: 11:40, 11:40, 11:37, ???
Today was also skin cancer removal day via the Mohs Procedure. I got to the dermatologist office at 8:45 and didn't get out of there until almost 3pm. The skin cancer ended up being deeper and wider under the first couple layers of skin. I had to go through two rounds of removal that left a deep quarter sized hole in my head. It was sewn up using a flap procedure by a plastic surgeon. I have a 3 inches of stitches on my head. So needless to say running and lifting would be out of the question this week.
I got barely any sleep. I had to sleep elevated and my head was throbbing all night long.
Woah....my face was so swollen and I had the start of a black eye. Still in quite a bit of pain.
I feel like I look like Frankenstein and the side of my head is so PUFFY. I'll spare y'all pictures. Oddly a good part of my scalp is still numb. Pain has subsided quite a bit.
- Rest Day
First day without needing to take Tylenol!!!! Swelling has gone down and I was feeling like I could survive a run.
I got up early to run before I took Eliana riding at 8am. At 5am it was 90 degrees and 97% humidity. Nope not happening. My treadmill is in our guest room and Rob went in there sometime during the night (he snores) and was still sleeping. So looks like running on the treadmill was out.
- Plan: 7.5mi @ LR 10:40 + 1.5mi @ HM Tempo 9:23
- Actual: 6mi @ 10:42
- Splits: 10:53, 10:41, 10:43, 10:42, 10:37, 10:38
I took Eliana horseback riding then I went to the cabinet store to design our kitchen layout. We were there for three hours, but we managed to pack in all the cabinets I needed. I also found the dishwasher we wanted for $250 off at Best Buy plus I had a $35 reward certificate. I also found the cooktop we currently own brand new on Ebay from someone who lived locally. The Ebay seller wanted $750 for it and I offered him $600. He took it! Woot woot! I love a good deal and saving money. We are hoping we can find our double wall ovens and range hood just as cheap. There's a Sears Outlet not too far from here I'm hoping to get to this week.
So back to running. It was triple digit heat today so I hopped on the treadmill. I managed to finish 6 of the planned 9 miles. My face was starting to swell up and my stitches felt like they were going to pull apart. It felt so good to get my legs moving though!!!
Here are photos and videos of the house as of Sunday.

Kitchen. We decided to save the money and not remove the door. We had to get creative with the cabinets, but I like saving money!

Blue or Green or just get both?Having now tried both flavors of milk at Galaxy's Edge, I am willing to offer my reviews if people want my take.

Toy Story Land has fun rides, but that's the extent of it.
Pandora is incredibly well themed. Flight of Passage is a spectacular attraction, but I think Navi River Journey is not worth the current wait times it commands. As for the land itself, I think it's interesting to walk around and see, but it is missing something in comparison to either Wizarding World or Galaxy's Edge.
I will say no more about Galaxy's Edge unless others ask me for my thoughts. I will keep those thoughts spoiler free.
And congratulations on the house!
This was just such a short trip there wasn't time to do too much plus the rain didn't help!!!Just read your trip review on "Amelia Island." That's my hometown, and I completely understand you sentiments. I also worked at the Ritz when I was a younger man, and it is definitely designed to keep you there at the hotel. Dolphins are a pretty regular site, and always awesome. They have a cruise downtown that takes you over to Cumberland Island, and if you get lucky the dolphins there push the fish onto the marsh banks, then beach themselves to eat the fish, and then roll back into the water, its amazing.
