Today was the day of all rest. After a not so grueling week, at least on paper, I had to take today off and I can already feel the healing.

Jen mentioned this morning that I might have had a not so perky run yesterday because of the two medicines that were injected into my body. How smart! It definitely could have been a variable in why my run seemed so… arduous. Anyway, a day removed from the shots and exercise is well worth it, rest days make you stronger, which is why most training programs have take 2-3 rest days a week.

So that means that I should make some concerted effort to run tomorrow. Perhaps 4 laps over at Lakeshore for a 8.8 total. Or maybe a trail run at Concord Park where the leaves will be changing. Nah, the photographic opportunities maybe to much of a distraction. We'll see though. Something will come of it.

Tennessee is playing Notre Dame tomorrow at 2:30 on NBC, that should be a fun time. UT's great defense with a stumbling offense makes for some trying time. Just this week after Spurrier handed Fulmer his lunch, the offensive coordinator took a different assistant job and let Phillip with the play calling. So here is the real test on whether it was all Randy's fault or if there is something up with the players and their inability to shine like their supposed to. Virginia is at Temple, so that won't be shown around here. Furman is at Georgia Southern, a typically difficult Southern Conference game. Green Bay is hosting the Steelers and looks like it will be televised here, I guess it depends on when Tennessee is playing Cleveland, so I might be able to watch some of that game as well.
