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.
