Today’s post/report is not what I wanted to post but I will because I am being honest here. Saturday’s “last long run” before the big race was more like “Saturdays short run” – the weather was perfect and I was ready. My son wanted to be dropped off at the high school baseball field – cousin was playing a double header. I dropped him off there and left my car in the parking lot and set off to do the loop for 2-3 hours. I did two loops and could not stand it anymore. I went back to the car and got my fruit and more water and walked over to watch some baseball. My heart is just not in it anymore. I can’t wait for the race to be over with so I can do something different for a while.
If I had to guess why my heart is not in it anymore is I am gaining weight and anxious to start those diet pills and the new diet back up. I think I would enjoy it more if I was not carrying around this spare tire and muffin top!
I did go to the Susan G Komen Mid-Michgan 5K on Sunday and when all the others on the team wanted to go home before the race because it was raining a friend and I decided we would stay and walk it. We walked it and since she is like a momma giraff and I am more like baby giraff I almost had to jog to keep up with her. She had to slow down for me.
The fast walk really made me work and my legs got tired. I wish I had her speed at walking but she did say she does 2 miles and is done. I can keep going and going and going
Well the plan is to run into baseball practice (7 miles). I will leave about an hour before practice and arrive while they are practicing and hitch a ride home with hubby and the boy. Temps today are mid 60’s – nice!
Have a great Monday everyone!
