i was happy when i got home, to have finally taken that first step getting back into running again. a few hours later i could already feel parts of legs starting to ache. i'm sure i'll be in a world of hurt tomorrow. but it's all worth it. exercising is one of those things i do that feels horrible but i'm always glad i did it. if i don't hurt too much tomorrow i may try running again. normally i'd only run every other day (to let my body recuperate), but the kind of low impact running i do (3 miles at a slow pace) probably means i don't need that much recovery time. besides, i really need the exercise.
i realized i wasn't receiving some of my e-mails. this all started because i ordered a wii fit from meijer.com last night ($90 in stock with just $6 for shipping) but never received the confirmation e-mail. there wasn't anything in my mail app inbox nor in the junk folder. so this morning i became curious and went online into the admin tool of my mail server. sure enough, i found the confirmation e-mail filtered into an archival junk folder, as well as a few other non-junk e-mails. if i didn't get so much junk mail sent to my e-mail address, i wouldn't need all this e-mail filtering. it just makes me more aware that every once in a while i need to go online and poke around my mail server to make sure essential messages aren't being trashed.
in the late morning i went with my father to the supermarket to pick up some groceries. he also gave me some chinese meatballs with rice which i ate for both lunch and dinner. i finally finished god of war. i still have grand theft auto to work on but i find that game too hard. there's something about free-roaming sandbox games i don't like, and there's no way to set the difficulty level so all the missions feel too challenging. i think i may take a break from gaming (until the wii fit arrives).
