a) I did nothing interesting yesterday. Nothing. I ate leftovers, ran 3 miles on the treadmill, and worked. Stop the presses! Most exciting day ever!
b) I spent the hours before I climbed into bed (at, um...9 pm) snuggling with my babies. I just couldn't tear myself away from the little guys!
Right now it's noon on Saturday, and it's already been more exciting that yesterday. Another early morning wake up call so I could meet with the running group at 6. Some new additions to the people I met on Thursday, which was really nice. Believe it or not, I can be pretty shy around new people, so today was big for me because I was chatting away. I ran about 11 with the group, walked a bit with them, and then took off for 4 on my own.
I finished up with 15 miles in 2:25, or about a 9:39 pace. The final four were at 9:09 or below, which is what I need to run next week to get a sub-2 half marathon. That's my goal!
Once again, I made the ultimate mistake of going grocery shopping after a long run. Seriously, dumbest move ever but I NEVER LEARN. Go in in for salad stuff and cat food, and end up with this:
I have no one to blame but myself. But oh my gosh the most fantastic pairing.
If you have a blog, do you write everyday? Do you ever force yourself to write a post or comment?
I think that if I write a post when I haven't done anything worth noting--it's going to be dull. And of course there are times when I would just rather watch a movie with my husband, get some work done or play with the cats than blog!
I have a question for the early risers--either for long runs or every day. When do you go to bed?
This week I have had a few 4:15 am wake-ups, and today was 4:45. For me to wake up at that time and NOT need a nap afterwards, I have to be in bed by 9! Are you all going to bed that early, or are you continually sleep-deprived?
