I won't be doing much running during the next week to 10 days. My wife and I are driving into Oregon and Washington to visit her brother and my sister. We're taking her 89-year-old mother with us. I hope to do a few short runs during the trip. This trip should give me a good rest which help pull me out of the slump. Rest is the cure for slumps that is recommended in the running literature. We head north and west tomorrow.
