Heading out the door on yet another weekend trip-5 hours in the car one way with just me and my girls since Joe is traveling with Max for his tournament in another city. I just thoroughly enjoy paying for hotel rooms in 2 different cities the same weekend....I really do love hanging out with my girls though!! I ADORE my son but I'm looking forward to just relaxing and not getting shot in the head by a Nerf gun, a flying floor hockey puck or getting my insatiably thirsty boy 47 drinks while I'm trying to run on the treadmill. Nahh-he's a good boy for the most part and knows not to bug mom when she's getting her run on-ha! Speaking of drinks I found a gallon of milk in the cereal cupboard this morning. Yeah-I put it there.....
They caught the little punks who tried to cripple me and leave me for dead. Not really but sounds more dramatic when I put it that way and I get more sympathy from my family when I rag about the huge thigh bruise I'm now sporting. I am having some weird feelings about this. I was SO pissed but now I almost feel bad or guilty. The driver may lose his license for a hit and run and I'm not sure he's a "bad" kid or just panicked. He obviously needs to learn a lesson but at the same time I don't want to screw up his life here. It's not my fault-I need to stop feeling upset. My husband has NO sympathy for this kid.
Joe made it home at midnight last night. I rarely go to bed before midnight. I put the kids to bed and waited for him since we seemingly never see each other and have to split up again today! He found me fast asleep in my fleece gopher pants with a huge hoody on, a ponytail, and wearing my teeth bleaching trays. LUCKY guy! I truly had intentions of changing out of this before he got home and at least brushing the bleach off my teeth....
My massage was heaven yesterday minus the fact that besides the thigh bruise I also tweaked something on the left side of my back apparently. I was slow moving this morning. I'm not injured, just sore and I could still run yesterday. I'm feeling better here now but decided to make today my off day and run the hills of Duluth tomorrow.
I have lots of thinking to do this weekend. Potentially a few hours on my laptop researching in my down time at the hotel. I am 16 weeks out from Grandma's this weekend and think I'm going to cross over to a marathon training plan. I'm still planning for a half in hopefully the next 4-5 weeks. I also think I will post my planned weekly workouts at the beginning of the week on here so I feel a little more accountable to them. I've sometimes broken down my entire week and paces afterwards. I keep a running log and could post from that...Not sure if that's very interesting. Still thinking about this.
Again, this was a random nothing post! I will be posting the food post next week.
Good luck to all those racing this weekend!
