- On Wednesday, I couldn’t resist going for a run. I only did 2.5 easy miles, but they felt awesome. The only reminder of the marathon was a lingering soreness in my left quad. My knee that started hurting around mile 23 seems to be healed. I could barely walk at this point after my last marathon, so I’m a happy camper. As part of my run, I put my SPIbelt to a huge test. I needed to pick up a prescription, so I put my cell phone, keys and mini-wallet in the belt and ran to the store. On the way home, I had all of the above, plus the bottle of pills. While it looked kind of funny, rattled, and required that I turn my phone off because it kept taking pictures inside of the belt, it worked. The pharmacist didn’t believe I could get it all in there LOL.
- As part of my “Fit and Fast by Forty” plan (which I will officially kick off with the Rock Your Socks 10k this weekend), I’m trying to get back into better eating habits. To that end, I’ve temporarily given up added sugar. I’ve been on a major sugar binge for the last few weeks and I just need to get the cravings under control. So far, it’s been two successful days. It’ll be interesting to see if I can still choose an apple with peanut butter over something sweet after I’ve had a beer with dinner on Friday night.
- I am planning to get my RRCA coaching certification this fall. So far, the closest class is in Maryland on a weekend when I’m in Wisconsin. Sigh. I’ve heard rumors that they run a class around the Marine Corps Marathon in the fall, so I’m hoping that will pan out. I’m challenging myself to save up the money for the class from the small things I do that bring in what Beer Geek calls my “pin money” (online surveys, subbing at the preschool, selling the kids outgrown toys, etc.). There’s no real reason to do it as we can afford the class, but I want to see if I can. Beer Geek just rolled his eyes at me when I told him. LOL
Speaking of subbing, I’m spending today at Shoo’s preschool, subbing in the older class. I’m doing it in part because they needed a sub, but also because I want to explore that as a potential time filler once the boys are both in school. Gotta love a job where your clothing choices revolve around whether you can sit on the floor in them and if they are easily washable. ;o)
