I have not seen my husband in a week. He walked in the door today to me getting off the treadmill wearing flourescent yellow shoes, black and red shorts, a light blue sportsbra and an orange bandana! Wow-was I lookin' good!! I would post a pic but I wouldn't want to scare anyone!
Joe decided to do a P90X video within about 15 minutes of coming in the door. This was totally OK with me because we understand each other when it comes to making time for working out. Here is where we differ! When I'm sweaty and gross the last thing I want to do is touch someone else! Why is it when Joe is done working out, he always feels the need to try to hug and kiss me and wipe his sweat all over me. Somehow, I think he thinks this should be some sort of turn-on-like I'm super attracted to sweaty stinky men??? So not working for me!!!
Anyway, here are my weekend happenings:
Max ended up having a friend sleepover on Friday night. I was one of 6 girls and I'm still getting used to the crazy boy thing! I have to say I love the fact that there is not nearly the drama with boys! Yell, punch, push, YES but drama NO!
We got up early Saturday morning to head to Grand Forks with Ryan for hockey. Max's little buddy's sister is on Ryan's team so he came with us. Ryan also had two teammates riding with us. We shipped Reese off to meet Joe in Fargo/Moorhead for her tournament. Ryan's team won their game 7-0. Ryan had two AAA coaches watching her play this game and she was extended an invitation afterwards to play on an elite team that would play 4 major international tournaments. Tournament #1-Boston Marathon weekend!! Now, I know I do a lot for my kids and I can argue myself to death about the fact that I deserve things for myself but at the same time I carry a ton of guilt about the fact that I am going to turn down this opportunity for her to do something for me. (In my defense, we may have turned it down anyway as I'm not sure we want her playing hockey all year round.) Joe said not to even tell her and she would be fine. I hate these kind of situations. I can't win.... Anyway, as if the doctor ordered, the phone rang today and she was invited to play on the MN Selects North team in a tournament at the end of March! We can make this one and I said "Yes" which made me feel better!
I've really got to stop this rambling all the time and get to the point which is running! After my super long treadmill run I was thoroughly content to take Saturday off from any exercise! Too bad I was so busy I couldn't really relish in it!! It's been said that running is 80% physical, 20% mental. I'm thinkin' it's closer to 50/50 for me. I felt great about pulling off the 20 on Friday and it totally inspired me. I felt very confident in my run today and went progressively faster finishing 10 with my final 3 @ 6:31. A few months ago it would have taken me way longer than one day to recover fully from a 20 mile run. I honestly felt no effects of that run and my legs felt strong and refreshed from the day off-not to say I wasn't expended in this run though! I did a good home weight workout tonight so the legs will likely feel like crap in the morning!
After I got home from my 20 and yes I posed next to my basement garbage can!
I can't believe tomorrow is Monday and I have to go back to work! I need an off off day!! I am back to my morning schedule and will get up and do my 8 at 5:00 am. So far, I have only completed one day of my Boston plan doing what it told me to do! I love to be a rebel!!
Have a great Monday! I'll be catchin' up tomorrow!
