CHECK!!! HOLY CRAP! I ran FIVE MILES today! I didn't stop even once! I'm SO excited! I was honestly starting to think I wouldn't be able to do it. I hate when your head gets in your way sometimes! I am really quite sore right now, I'm sure tomorrow is going to be really bad! It's a good kind of pain though! It hurts so good! My new running shoes were awesome! They felt so comfortable and very nicely cushioned! I'm thinking I found myself my new favorite running shoe company! Thank you Brooks!!
I'm starting to worry that I may not be ready for this 10k in two weeks. I think I'm just psyching myself out a little. I need to knock it off! I think the fact that I ran so slowly today has me worried. Today was very hard. I really had to push to get to the 5 mile mark. I'm hoping I will be able to add 1 more mile by the 28th. This is the first time I'm feeling any doubt. Please tell me I'm just being silly?! What's one more mile? Right??
Oh how I wish I could just sit down with a good book right now and put my feet up. Alas - we were lazy bums on Saturday. We didn't do a damned thing. It kind of felt good. Now I have housework piled up to my armpits! UGH. Maybe I will be able to find a good movie on TV and I can sit on the floor and fold the fifty million loads of laundry that we washed yesterday. The folding is the crappiest part if you ask me! OOH I have to throw in a load of diapers too. We can't go around with an undiapered baby now, could we? (yeah, I know some people do it - but I'm really not into the whole "evacuation communication" dealio - I breastfeed and use cloth diapers and wipes, that is as granola as I get!)
Well, I'm off. It sounds like the hubs is having a rough time with the kids. In his defense - his back went out and he can't get to the chiropractor until the end of the week. His neck is really hurting. Poor guy!
Thanks for reading!! Have a WONDERFUL night!! -Monica
