Seven miles @ 8:29 with Jo (where we solved all of life’s problems in 60 minutes;) and then a 20-minute lower body strength workout.
We had another loooooooong night together, but once morning hit, she was feeling a whole lot better, and her temperature dropped (it was 104.5 on Sunday!).
A friend of mine dropped off this bowl of goodness. It meant the world to me. It inspired me to be better at doing this for other people because it made me feel special.
You know there is a lot of sickness going on over here recently when the 1-year-old mimics taking his temperature.
Skye was attached to me for most of the day…
But she also did a bit of playing too. This train was the one that Andrew had around his Christmas tree when he was a little boy so it’s everyone’s favorite.
A 3 hour nap!
And the focacia bread from TJ’s makes excellent grilled cheese sandwiches to go with some tomato soup.
PS this is Beck’s absolute favorite thing lately. He loves us pulling him around the main room on this blanket.
I signed up for my first marathon because Megan was doing it, and I wanted to do it with her. Running ONE marathon had always been on my bucket list, and it seemed like the perfect time to do it because I could train with Megan. Over the years I had ran a bit here and there with my sister, but my focus at the time had been on teaching spin classes and doing the elliptical (next to Megan or my friend Ali). I thought it would be a one and DONE (ps my first training plan is HERE) and then get back to my regular fitness routine. I did all of my runs for the marathon on the treadmill (except for one 5 mile outdoor run) and made all of the mistakes possible on race day… but I finished and knew I was hooked on the marathon.
I ran another marathon just 7 weeks later. I went straight from a casual fan to 100% letting it consume my soul:).
5,395 (an educated guess;) pairs of running shoes later, and running will be a big part of my life until I can’t run anymore. It just took that one race to change everything about my thoughts about running.
Speaking of marathons… I got an email yesterday asking if I wanted this picture (I just took a screenshot of my face… the real picture is big) from my last marathon. Ummmm no, I think I will pass ha… that marathon hurt so so bad.
What got you hooked on running? Did you guess you would end up feeling the way you do now about it?
What is your workout today?
Does sleep deprivation feel like torture to you? I have no one to empathize with over here because the amount of sleep I got the last few nights is what Andrew gets on his good nights, ha.
