As I expected, I am ROCKING the taper. See, unlike “real” marathon runners, I love the cut back in running. Oh, wait, I haven’t actually cut back yet…
- I ran my 20 on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the only part of my body that hurt was one of my toes. So, I figured I should try running. 4.1 miles in 40:17. My legs felt like I’d run the day before, but not like I’d run 20 miles. Woot. Well, if that felt good, obviously I should run today. 4.6 miles in 43:07. My legs did a little bit of “nuh uh, we do NOT run three days in a row”, but got over it and it was a pretty darn good run. That was certainly a surprise.
- You know you are a mom when you eke out as much distance as you can by running up and down your street for the three minutes you have left before you need to leave for preschool pickup. You know you are a runner when you walk into preschool, quite literally dripping sweat, and everyone asks if you spent the entire preschool time running AGAIN LOL.
- I’m doing well on the 3 changes for the most part, although one sort of led to messing up the other last night. I did great on water consumption yesterday, as well as on not snacking in the afternoon. However, I went out with the preschool moms last night and two glasses of red wine led to a bit of snacking when I got home. (And what is up with an upscale restaurant having their best beers be Yuengling, Stella, and Blue Moon? C’mon, at least throw me a Guinness…)
Happy Earth Day. I thought about not showering to save water, but after the run, I was afraid I could clear a room LOL. Oh, and my GU giveaway is now closed. I’ll announce the winners this weekend.
