So close!!!

AHHH! the end of the month is Thursday. According to my ticker, I have a little over 7 miles to reach my goal for the month. I've been sick since Thursday and have had NO energy what so ever. I'm waiting for Abbi to get picked up for gymnastics and then will be heading out to the gym for a quick run before work tonight..I'm hoping to eek out at least 3 of those 7 miles...wish me luck!

Gym or couch?

That was the question I was asking this morning. Guess who won?? Yep, the gym!! A few years ago the couch woulda won-not today and if you look at my ticker, you'll see I'm almost to my June goal! It's only 45 miles, but!!!! Woo Hoo!!!

Yesterday I ran 5 miles and felt like I could run 5 more. I was too worried about dinner and picking up Drew from his friends house tho, so I stopped at 5. Today I just ran 3.1, again I felt great-woulda ran longer but again was worried about Drew at his friends and I had to make sure I was home in time to meet Abbi after gymnastics.

Both yesterday and today, I was FREEZING after my run. I sat in the sauna and shivered, I had actual goose bumps! What is up with that? I'm usually hotter than hot but not yesterday or today. Is there something wrong with me? Scary! The sauna temp was 180* and I had goosebumps. That does not seem normal to me.

No Bueno

Due to extremely busy schedules, I'll be missing the gym today and tomorrow- unless I hit it at midnight after work. I'm a little crabby. I think it's because I need to get some "me" time.
I ran a mile yesterday at the gym then grocery shopped all afternoon. I hate grocery shopping. It takes me a good 2+ hours to get it all in. I wish I was an extreme coupon-er too. I spent a little over $170 for the week and it was for lunches, snacks and 3 nights of dinners. DISGUSTING!
I came across a coupon for $1 off band aids at Target today. Target has band aids on sale for 84 cents, so I'd make money-but I don't need anything else from Target so I'd end up spending more money in gas and other crap I don't need just to buy band aids... AGGRAVATING!

Back in the saddle again

I'm BAACK! Ran 5 miles today. It was easyish hardish. I'm following a 1/2 marathon coach app and it said to complete at least 5 miles in 1 hour 15 minutes. I finished 5 miles in 1 hour 49 seconds. Felt great to accomplish it too. I would have liked to be a bit faster, but I didn't want to push it too much and risk injury. Tomorrow is a rest day. Thank goodness! I will go for a walk tho. Need to get that exercise in somehow, so I'll take the kids and head for a stroll.

Ain't nuthin but a...

G thang. I love Snoop. I love his music. I love that he has, "puff puff pass" Tuesday's on Twitter. every.single.Tuesday. He makes me :giggle:
I was listening to him while on the the treadmill today. I must have been having too much fun, because by the time the song was over, the guy next to me looked at me like I was a freak and moved over one row. HA!
To all my (as read, only 9) followers, what do you listen to while running?

What a waste of a month!

Whew!! May was super crazy busy! between sick kids, birthday's, mom's day and parties I put in 2 runs. Just 2 runs!! My ass does not thank me for this. gross! Buuuuuut (no pun) June is a new month and I am for sure back into the groove! Ran yesterday at the gym and while it wasn't pretty, I did manage to choke out 3 miles in 30.02. I'd like to speed it up a bit- so I think I'll work on that once I get the cobwebs really off the Asics.
There's a few races I'd like to run this month too. The Race to the Taste is the 26th this year. I'd love to run it with Ken, but we'd need a sitter for the kids..... The Old Canal Days race is June 18th. It's close to home so totally doable, but will I be ready by then? That's 16 days away. This course has hills too....can I do this? Yes I can! I'll be signing up (if it's not too late) by the end of today. I really really really want to run Rock n Roll 1/2 August 14th. I haven't found my courage for that one tho. There is still time. I can still train. Maybe just maybe that'll be my first 1/2

OK big kids are off to school and the kitchen is all cleaned up. The laundry is going to wait-the little girls and I are off to the gym!

Happy running!
