After taking Fri and Sat off from any physical activity, I figured I was due for a nice run this morning. Weather was beautiful, about 70 degrees, nice breeze, patches of sun....so off I went. Yeah, I got about 3/4 of a mile and had to give up. Evidently, the time away turned by legs, shins, even ankles to mush and they just couldn't handle it so I gave up before I even really started. The shins hurt, even my quads hurt a little (shoulders feel good though!) so I'm a bit disappointed right now. I wanted to enter a 5K on Feb 24th but really wanted to have more mileage under my belt before then. Not sure what I'm gonna do. Maybe I will go to the gym later today and take it out on the ellipse.
Okay, I feel better. Got that rage out that I've been carrying around all day today. Feel so refreshed now! On another note, here are some goals for the week:
1. Clean house top to bottom. Parents are coming into town on Thursday and got to show them what a good little housekeeper I am. It's funny how even though I'm 30 years old I still want to impress my parents. This will be their first time seeing this house and I can't wait to see their reaction. So much nicer than the apt. we were in last year.
2. Give Wilson (my dog) a bath and get him all primped and pretty for his weekend with the Froyds.
3. Get running and swimming in this week (at least 2 days each).
4. Pack for Disney. Yep, taking my parents to Disney this weekend as they have never been there before. I'm looking forward to taking pictures of my dad with Goofy and Mickey.
I want to squeeze a haircut in there too. Need to squeeze that in after work, which means turning the car off autopilot on the ride home and making a stop for a much-needed trim.
Advice please...do I run the 5K on Feb 24th or train a little longer and do a different one on March 8th? Suggestions?
