Or as my husband thought I said, achy as a whore. Sheesh - why the hell would I say that? He cracks me up! Today was my first real workout in a week. Pathetic huh? I really took a break after that 10k. I finally started my 5k to faster program (just a couch to 5k program that I changed from walk/run to run/run faster). The first day was HARD! I was kind of surprised at how hard it was. I did it on the treadmill since it was so frigging hot out. Anyway, I started with an incline of 1 and a speed of 6.0 - I did that for one minute and then went to a speed of 4.0 for a minute and a half. I just alternated for 15 minutes (it was supposed to be 20 but my son was being obnoxious).
We had a rather exciting morning - and not in a good way. My daughter got cut pretty badly and I had to rush her to the ER for stitches. Thankfully it was only on her hand and it should be better within a week - but still. I was really very upset about it. I'm not looking forward to putting neosporin and fresh bandages on it tomorrow - honestly - I'm kind of freaked out about it. When you're a mom though, you do what you have to do! I'm just thankful the cut wasn't worse and that it was only on her hand. Long story short - she had gotten ahold of my husband's measuring tape - she must have been holding the metal tape part and then pressed the retract button. I swear, if there is something you don't want your kids to have - they will find a way to get it anyway. What a scary morning. I'm just glad she is ok, my poor baby girl!
It also appears that my son is coming down with a cold. I swear -when it rains it pours. I hope it clears up soon and that it doesn't pass on to anyone else. Who are we kidding. I should be sick within the week. I swear, my son has no immune system. That child gets sick monthly.
I think I'm going to add a few days of easy jogging to my weekly workouts. I just think I need to kick it up a bit.
Sorry I've been gone so long. Some things have changed around here which should lend to me being able to get more things done in a day. That SHOULD include blogging! I hope I have not lost any readers!!!
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful night!! -Monica
