Talked to Doris last night: she is well and staying indoors to keep dry and warm. It has been raining all day in the Bay Area. She asked me if I watched the football game last night, I told her I watched the highlight and the 49ers won the game. Diana and Oralia called tp let Doris know that San Francisco won the game. The next game is on Sunday. She walked a total of 4325 steps today and step length was 14.2 inches with a symmetry of 82 %. I told her it is good that she walked to strengthen and improve her legs. The weather is cold and dreary that the dogs are staying in their dog house. I told her I attended and hosted the ACE Class today. I am just ready to clean up, and do some reading and ready for bed. As I will be a busy day tomorrow.

It rained all night and in the morning until 6:00 AM. The morning was dark and overcast, but it was cool cool and there was a slight breeze. I was able to get my walking in while there was a break in the rain. Completed 6 miles in 1 hour 16 minutes and 12 seconds. The average walking times were: 12 minutes and 9 seconds per mile (milla) or 49 seconds per lap (vuelta). The basketball court was damp and wet but was adequate for walking.

Talked to Doris at 9:00 AM: Doris is well, she said her ankle was hurting this morning and she applied some analgesic ointment and she is feeling better. She walked 45oo steps yesterday. I encouraged her to set a goal of 5000 step per day. I told her the email system was back online, but there is a long line. I will only reply to some of her important emails, but I will read all her emails. I told her I will have a busy day with GED / ESL and helping host the Real Estate class tonight with David Crisp. The weather in the Bay Area has been raining. I told her I was able to get my 6 miles walking in before the rain started again. The dogs are staying in their dog house away from the inclement weather. I told her it might be sometime before I could catch up on my journal entries and class reports.
