Bit of a boring nothing post before the weekend!! I've been rambling about too much running crap when in all actuality my other life is SO much more exciting.....
*Actually got up to watch the Royal Wedding. I was 5 years old and even remember what I was wearing when Charles and Diana got married. My aunt had a VCR which was almost unheard of back then and she taped it and I watched it probably 100 times. I'm also Canadian and remember singing "God Save the Queen" every morning after "O Canada" in school. The music in the wedding-ahhhhh! GOOSEBUMPS!! I'm not one of those "National Enquirer" types who is even remotely interested in the lives of wealthy socialites but this is different!! I DO appreciate the beautiful tradition. Fun for my girls to see!
*Snow in the forecast for tomorrow.
*The wind ALWAYS blows from the NESW in Minnesota
*I am back at work and getting readjusted to my routine. Early morning running again. This will take some adjusting as although I get up early my motivation to run just isn't there. I can go to the gym, even bike, but running....I'm working on it.
*Leaving on a hockey trip this afternoon. My break from the travel went WAY too quickly! Now, to add to the hockey we have J.O. volleyball and baseball. Also trying to fit swimming lessons in here.
*My husband recently changed his work and is not traveling as much so this is a HUGE blessing.
*I lost my phone in the water on a 4 wheeling ride through the gravel pit. I am now painstakingly trying to get all my contacts back.
*Reese is running the mile for gym class today. I want to hide in the press booth above the track and watch just for fun. Still considering this....
*I am still undecided about racing a HM. This distance, which used to be my very favorite, seems very stressful for me right now. Every distance seems stressful. I'm leaning toward racing the 10K I'm running with my hubby the weekend after instead. If I can get my head in the right place, perhaps I will run both all out.
Was planning to run long today before the weekend but arranged to run with Katie on Sunday afternoon instead. (To clarify from my past post, Katie has not run races due to social anxiety-hates crowds (she OK'ed me to say this) She was a high school track and cross country star.) ANYWAYS, this put me back on track for my threshold run (3 miles easy, 3X10 minutes at HM/10K pace w/4-min. active recovery, 3 miles easy). Off to run:)
Big shoutout to Julia at her birthday half!!! I always love to celebrate my birthday with the torture of a HM-ha!!! Caroline, Happy Runner, Ginny and the MANY others-Good LUCK!!!!
