The weekend started off great, slept in Saturday, cleaned house, made a Costco trip and lots of family time today. I am so relieved to have tomorrow off for the 4th of July Holiday observance, on the schedule first thing is a solid bike ride.
Now for your Sunday Summary, nothing to be impressed by, but certainly better than last week and that is all I can ask for.
Miles Planned/Covered (run miles only unless otherwise indicated)
Monday: Rest Day 0/0
Wednesday: Rest Day 0/0
Friday: Rest Day 0/0
Sunday: 4/8.2 (+2 mile late evening walk)
Total miles covered 10.2, total planned 21, like I said, not the best week, but I am back in the game. I tried to make up the long run from yesterday, after 2 weeks off, jumping into 10 cold was not the best idea. I ran from home to our local free Firecracker 4-miler then did the 4 mile course with my hubby and kids. I am so jealous that my husband who hates running and hasn't run more than the bases in a softball game and go out and do 4-miles effortlessly and has 2 speeds fast and faster. I was annoyed that he was probably going to lose 10 pounds on this little jaunt too. He said, nah I need the tire. I patted his belly and said, this spare tire. I laughed, I thought I was being funny which is rare, then he of course came back over the top by saying that he can't lose his spare tire, it fuels this sweet love machine. Really? Who says that. He says it is a common joke, but I had never heard it.
Needless to say, despite the too much too soon ITB issue the last mile I had a great time. We were late to the kids race 1/4 mile race, but my son ran about 1/2 mile of the 4-miler and earned himself a pretty sweet medal. He also learned good sportsmanship by saying "good job" to everyone we passed.
- For family BBQ's
- For a husband who pushes me when I don't think I am capable (and pushes the jogging stroller too)
- For blog-land Weight loss events, more on this tomorrow for my Monday Motivation, as if the day off wasn't going to be enough motivation.
