I know I have not posted in almost a week. Sorry about that. I guess I just needed some time to recover from my Grandmother's passing. I'm a lot better now. I hope I didn't lose all my readers! Just give me a shout out if you're still here!
Even though I took a week off of posting, I did not take a week off of eating well and exercising. I did back off a little bit - but not TOO much. I have a race on Saturday which I am REALLY looking forward to. PLEASE pray that someone buys my stuff on craigs list so I can buy some new running shoes. I'm getting a little anxious about that. I'm sure I'll be fine - I'm just being stupid I guess. I'm just getting this sneaking feeling that if I don't get some new shoes soon, I'm going to get an injury. :-/
I did do my first run on a track this past Saturday. That was pretty fun - I've never done that before! The only drawbacks were 1. the track smelled gross - I guess it was a rubbery/tar-ish sort of smell (yuck) 2. There were a LOT of young people there and I felt like I was being gawked at. 3. There were CRAPLOADS of flowering trees hanging over the track and my allergies were going INSANE There were some nice benefits to it though: 1.My son sat with my hubby and daughter in the bleachers and I could hear my son yelling "GO MOMMY GO! GO MOMMY GO!" LOL while I LOVED that, it was a tad embarrassing! HAHA 2. Since the other people there were only playing football in the center of the track, I could just put my head down and concentrate on running. 3. It gave me practice running against the wind but keeping the ground level so it didn't make it TOO hard. All in all, I think I'm going to do a once a week run there if possible. I really liked it!
As for my 10k training, last week sucked hard. I have decided to wait to start the program until AFTER my race this weekend. I plan to do this: 3 mile run today, weight training Thursday, day off Friday, race on Saturday!, day off Sunday, 10k training program Monday. I've got this!
I had better get going - writing in the morning is not an easy task and I hear my baby girl waking up. I'd better get her before it turns into a major meltdown!
Thanks for reading (I really hope you all didn't leave me!) Have a WONDERFUL day! -Monica
