I’ve only run 3 miles in the last four days and I’m starting to feel, well, just kind of blah. I’ve been eating too much most days and even when I eat a reasonable amount, too much of it is cookies and other not so healthy stuff. And water? What’s that? All I’ve been drinking is beer, wine, coffee and soda. So, even though I haven’t actually gained much this holiday season, I’m feeling way too fluffy and beginning to get the “I need to run or I’m going to hurt someone” feeling.
In addition to all the holiday stuff, yesterday we had the pleasure of flying home. Our flight was 3 hours late and then I had to wait an extra hour and a half for our luggage. Our airline had three flights coming from Milwaukee here and they mixed up the luggage carts between them. Lovely. And I’m an idiot and packed Jones’ pillow case and stuffed animals in the checked luggage. Let’s just say that no one would have gotten any sleep last night if I hadn’t stayed at the airport and gotten the bags.
Thankfully, we are home and the weather is supposed to be a lovely 50 degrees tomorrow, so I should be able to run after Beer Geek comes home from work. Now if I could just get myself to hit the “order” button on the races in Delaware and Minnesota…
And maybe I should work on some goals for 2009 ’cause I’m a woman who needs goals. I think I’m almost as “lost” now that I’ve finished the 1000 miles as I was when I finished the marathon.
