Wednesday- 1 mile walk on treadmill
Friday- 5 miles on treadmill(more on this at the end of the post)
I’ve been gone from the blog world for a couple of days, so let’s play catch up!
I took J to a new library in Murray with some of our friends. They do a story/singing time and he really enjoyed it. The lady who was in charge was so energetic, it made me wanna dance around with scarves too;)
We’ve had a couple of friends come over to play. I love watching this age interact with each other, their conversations are hilarious!
We went to the park and ate lunch. Last week was snowing and this week it’s in the 60’s. No complaints here.
I’m back on the green smoothie band wagon. I’m trying really hard to eat better these days. I just keep finding Halloween candy, or I keep buying it, definitely one or the other. . .
here’s what’s in this smoothie:
Josh and I got a couples massage. Josh found a great Groupon for a couples massage from Utah Valley Massage Therapy. We both agree it was the best thing ever. We pretty much looked something like this, we’re so glamorous. . . not. They rubbed oils in my hair, I looked like a witch caught in a wind storm.
And finally, last night we went out to dinner with Josh’s cousin and his wife. Then we came back to our house and let the kids play all night. Seriously, they played till 10:30 without much of an argument. Such a great night!
Alright well now that we’re all caught up, can I say that all runs are not created equal? I’ve been slacking, like a lot lately. I had been craving a good workout so yesterday morning I was determined to run 5 miles. Well, it was hard, painful, and pretty craptastic(yes it’s a word). Just taking a couple weeks off, or running shorter slower runs makes it hard to move my legs fast or at all. Just like the green smoothies are back in my life, so are harder workouts. I need to recommit myself today.
Hopefully while your reading this I’m out running with my neighbor. I knew if I wanted another great workout I needed to get a buddy. =)
Thanks for letting me rant, have a great weekend!
Ever had a run that hurt your running ego?
What do you tell yourself to keep yourself training hard?
