Finally! It is finally back!! My runner's high that is....and maybe my blogger's high too (well maybe!). Marshall was ordering pizza for supper tonight. I knew that if I was going to eat it that I needed to run. So I made myself get on the treadmill while the pizza was on the way. I got in a quick 1.25 miles. Most of that I ran too. I pushed myself a little harder. I had a little bit of arch pain and a cramp in my side. So I focused on breathing, technique and drinking some water. It helped the pains go away and I was able to run more. I also got my MOTOACTV finally calibrated for the treadmill. Now I can make sure to use it more when I do my treadmill runs! I have a feeling that there will be lots of those this summer. It's been so crazy hot here lately. Course tonight was nice and cooler with a breeze. Made me want to get out and do another run. However there was some lightning nearby so that wouldn't have been a good idea. :)
Both of the boys aren't feeling good. Chest/head colds. Coughs, snotty noses, gagging from drainage, and wheezing cries. *sigh* Poor babies. I hope they both get to feeling much better! Already seems like a better day today. At least Corgan will take something to help. They're both a bit whiny lately too....probably just from not feeling good.
So ready for a new goal so I'm challenging myself to lose 5 lbs by the 21st. That's 2 weeks. I'm going to be strict on myself again. Eating much better, counting calories, drinking at least 95% water (the occasional coffee and tea....no carbonated drinks), and exercising regularly. I have got to get my butt back in gear. I think it will help my back and neck pain I've had for almost 2 months now.
11 weeks til Warrior Dash!!! I WILL commit to finishing an exercise program whether it be Slim in 6, 30 Day Shred or Couch 2 5K. That's another goal to have done before Warrior Dash. I would love to be down 20 more lbs by the WD. I can do it!!
