- 6:30 to 7:00 — Bike commute.
- 7:00 to 9:00 — Eat, read from Chronicles of Narnia, read from The Dragon Keeper, read short story written by eldest daughter, check under bed of youngest son, do dishes and sundry chores.
- 9:00 to 10:00 — Run 6.57 miles.
- 10:00 to now…sit with barely enough energy to hold my head up, wonder if it is a problem that my legs are asleep from the knees down, and wonder how long it will take to fall asleep.
