Three Things Thursday

Three things.

1)  If you'd told me as a kid that I would be spending my summer vacation getting up at 5:45am to run, I would have told you to stop smoking crack.  I'm just sayin'.  (of course, today I slept in).  And, probably TMI, but I'm having some GI issues running this week.  I don't know if it's just getting home from our trip, or knowing the kids are in another state, or what.  But it's interfering with my milage.  I might just go ahead and take a rest day tomorrow, do some biking, or light swimming, to see if it helps.  I don't know what else to do.

2)  My kids are at the beach, and I am here.  This is like a 4 day date.  Every thing we do feels like a date.  "Want to eat lunch?"  OK, it's a date!  "Want to watch Deadliest Catch?"  OK, it's a date!  Fun stuff.


3)  I'm the kind of person who can comfortably wear a bikini to the beach, even though I know it doesn't cover any more or any less skin than a bra & skirt running outfit, but cannot wear said bra & skirt running without feeling "nekkid".  It's 85 degrees.  It's 50% humidity.  It's 10:27 AM.  For today's run, I am standing in my kitchen half dressed and FORCING myself out the door.  My training plan says 3 miles or hills.  I suppose I should decide before I start the run which I'm going to do, huh?  
OK.  Hills and 3 miles it is.


the proof.

Haha I feel the same about No. 1 & 3. I would have never guessed I'd become a runner. And I also sport the bikini all the time, yet would never run in a sports bra. I see people do it at the gym and it amazes me!

You look great woman! :) Hope the GI issues clear up quickly.

LOL...you know as far as running is concerned, "Poops-a-lot" is like my middle name. I can tell you where a bathroom or potty spot is on just about any route in the Richmond Metro area. Trust me, I know it's tough, but be happy it's not a permanent thing for you.
As far as #3, I hear ya. I fight with myself - I am over 40 and don't need to bare my midriff; do I have "done-lap" syndrome...ugh, but I love how it feels!
