It’s sad to say that yesterday’s highlight was watching J’s face when we showed him our Elka Seltzer in the water…(horrible phone quality, I know. but by this point you don’t expect anything less=))
It was pretty cute ha.
The hubs caught the cold =( but at least I’m feeling so much better and can return the favor and tend to him. I am definitely getting my run on tomorrow and I can. not. wait!!!! I’m sure any non-runner reading this thinks I’m a total nut, in which case they would be right;) My mom is just as excited for me to be able to run again, she’s gotten 3 extra calls a day for me to vent about life(which is usual) but now she gets the added sob story of not being able to run.
Let’s get on with it, we all know I didn’t reach my goals this week=( On the brighter side, I have a brand new week ahead to start over. That’s what I love about Sundays, we get to think about our past week and decide for the new week what we(I) can do better.
1. Make the healthy dinner that my cousin so kindly posted on my fb wall, (thanks!) last week that I failed to make.
2. Get a tempo run, and a longer(okay I’m gonna say it, 14-16 mile) run in. I have been really wanting to run more than 13.1 miles for awhile just to see if I can. I don’t know why I get so nervous about it, but I feel like if I say it to more than myself I am more likely to do it.
3. Plan a better family night. Every Monday we try and have a family night that has a lesson(spiritual), and activity, and we usually have a treat=) With our little family of 3 every night is basically ‘family night’ haha so I’m trying to plan a structured family night with a short lesson and activity geared toward J.
I want to know your goals, what are you working on?
How did you prep for a first time longer distance?
Anyone race this weekend? How did it go?
