Something terrible happened last Saturday in Holland. Saturday around noon a guy of 25 years old walked into a crowded shopping centre and started to shoot randomly. He has used 3 guns for about a 100 times. After he shot 6 people dead and wounded 15 people he walked into a supermarket where he committed suicide by shooting himself. Something like this doesn’t happen a lot here, in fact I can’t remember if it ever happened.
They say he was depressed but I don’t understand. I can understand that people are so depressed they don’t see a way out and the only way is commit suicide. But what I don’t understand is why you have to take people with you into death, people who did nothing to you. I hate this guy for that. He had no right, no reason to take the life of these 6 people.
Saturday after my long run I didn’t do much more than move around the house. Those long runs really ask something about my legs. I started icing after a run a few weeks ago and that helps but on the day itself my legs are really stiff. I looked like a really old woman when I walk up and down the stairs. I watched my favorite after long runs shows Saturday afternoon: Glee and Modern Family. That’s getting a Saturday tradition. Saturday night R. and I watched the latest Harry Potter which we had not seen yet. Can’t wait till the final movie comes out.
Yesterday it was a beautiful day, warm and sunny. R. was working on his motor bike at home and I sat in the sun, did some cross stitching, watch some other tv shows (Private Practice and Desperate Housewives) and Bella was working on her tan.
Early morning run. Not much to say about it except that it was a good run. I had planned to run outside the village but as soon as I came outside it I ran into a wall of fog. And the last time I ran in it in the dark without streetlights it was spooky. I turned right and ran through my village instead. Don’t like that but preferred that above a fog run.

I’m very satisfied with my running last week, highest mileage in a week ever. This week it will be higher and after that the mileage is going to drop for a while.
