3 Things Thursday - Random Edition

Everyone seems to be doing editions today... bandwagon + me = Three Things Thursday the Random Edition.

1)  Not quite a week into my "new year", and I'm not exactly on track with my eating.  I am considering (don't tell H) going through the house and throwing away all the cookies and candy with the excuse of "I thought it was bad, and didn't want to risk the kids getting sick off a bad hershey's kiss".  What do you think?  He totally doesn't get why I 'just don't eat it'.  My thinking is along the "set yourself up for success - If it's in the house, it's a lot easier to snack on junk than if it's in the trash".  I'm just sayin'.

2)  We received some startling news in the past few weeks from my child's Md and it's really knocked my head out of the game.  i.e. - I freakin' showed up to a run w/o shoes.  I have been playing it close to the chest, and finally told T.  But just so you know, when I know something for sure, I will share with you all.  Until then, if I seem somedays spacey, well, that's why.

3)  Whoops!  I forgot my rest day!  (Has this ever happened to you?)  I was sick last week, so the day I finally felt better was Friday - my typical rest day - and I finally ran.  Then I ran a family 5K on Saturday, and knocked out an easy 11 miles for my long run on Sunday.  Monday T was kid free, so Kc & I joined her for a hill workout.  Tuesday I always run, though I wasn't "feeling it" for some reason and bailed at 4 miles.  Yesterday is a mid week 10 miler, and I hate to miss it because it gives me a chance to see & run with IronJ (who has been re-named b/c she needs a cool name that reflects how cool she is).  And today it's Thursday, and I always run on Thursday so I knocked out another 4 miler - again, unsure of why 6 miles was sounding SO impossible....  Dude, 6 miles was "sounding impossible" because today was your 7th day in a row and you're coming back off a massive cold.

AH! I always worry when I see something about kiddos. Thinking of you and sending healthy vibes. As for the rest day - just take two next week?? I am living and dying these days by my T-made Tri plan and if it says REST, I REST. Next week I start on my 5 milers so I should be able to join your posse for at least one soon! :)

p.s. toss the junk and drink some tea.

Michelle said...

I sometimes just ignore my planned rest days. I've done 10 days in a row of running and tomorrow I WILL REST (even if I have to force myself.....)

Rene' said...

Thinking of you friend! Kid stuff easily throws you for a loop especially from an md. Huge hugs coming your way!!

Pam said...

Praying that all is well with your kiddo. I've seen way too much bad news in blogworld lately.

Alex said...

Sending good wishes your way!!!

Men don't get it. Maybe put it in your car! Is it worth walking to the car?

joan said...

Thinking about your & the kiddo! Hope all's well!!

I, also, need to ditch some sweets... big time!

Julie D. said...

shoot, G. Our kids are everything...of course you are going to show up to a run with out shoes. Praying all is well or will be well soon!! Hang in there.

Amanda@runninghood said...

Hoping all is well with your child! Sounds like a good reason to show up without shoes. I have so much catching up to do on here...I'm so behind with blogs. I always enjoy yours though.

Julie said...

That totally happened to me yesterday. Swimming at the gym was like swimming in pudding. I couldn't get my body to move...and then I realized I haven't taken a day off in 11 days!
Today, I rest :-)

I dumped most of the junk too. My kids don't really eat much of it anyway.

I hope everything will be okay. Praying it is nothing serious!

I love the running streak. But it's a slippery slope for me. Ugh! somedays I wonder, How did I get to day 245? And how does day 365 know my name? Because it keeps calling to me!

Scarlett Mother said...

Ginny, I hope you and the clan are okay. It sucks when you find out something challenging about your kids. Little H's food allergies have worsened. When the doc handed me the the epi-pen script, I thought wow this is serious!@ A food overdose could kill my kid. It just sucks. Praying for you.
