Jumping the gun!
well not literally....but I think I better explain myself after my extremely negative blog the other day....I am just going to say it was a bad, bad, day! It is in the past and I have moved on!
Yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon I knew I was not ready to get out there and run again yet, for fear of having a repeat of Tuesday and the heat was still around, so I decided cross training for the day would be the way to go.
50 bicep curls
25 chest flys
50 shoulder presses
200 core moves
and 6 miles on my bike! I would have gone further on my bike but I was pressed for time it was little Missy's first night of soccer.
a few things got me over my horrible Tuesday, one of them was Isabella, she said to me Mommy...can we go buy some new soccer clothes for me? When I asked why,because she has a million pairs of shorts and t-shirts...she said "I wanna look just like you when you run super fast!" ahhhh she knows how to pull good heart strings so I did take her to target and Champion makes a little kids line, and although she is teeny tiny ( she still wears a 2 or 3t and she is almost four) I bought it for her and brought her home and sewed the waist of her shorts so they would fit! She looked very cute, I will post pictures later!
Everyone was so encouraging! Thank you, it is like you guys did not believe me that I was going to quit, which is pretty much what I needed!
Hubby and I had a loooonnnnggg talk last night about running and the need to push further, faster, harder, and my ridiculous mental games! It was such a nice talk and he made me realize that I often scoff at myself and a lot of times don't believe in myself....so I took this from our talk set a ridiculous goal and reach for your dreams even if it is a totally unattainable goal, you might surprise yourself at how far you get.
and here are some adorable pictures of my cutie pies from the last two extremely warm days! I hope everyone enjoys the day I will be back tonight with a post about my most awesome run.....that I am truly looking forward too...1 week 2 days out from race number 2!!
Itty bitty and her shades!
