On Sunday, I participated in the Clearwater Iron Girl 5K. I'll have my recap up tomorrow of the race but I ended up doing 3.18 miles according to my Nike+ app that I had going. I didn't weave as much as I thought I did I guess. It wasn't a great race for me but I finished it. And that's all that matters.
I took Monday off because my body realized that I had done something so out of the ordinary that it went into shock. OK maybe not that dramatic but I was feeling it so I didn't want to push my luck. I took the day off to relax
On Tuesday, I sported my yellow and blue in honor of the Boston Marathon tragedy. I still can't wrap my head around all of it. Once we got the kids to bed, I put on yellow and blue again and got on the elliptical for 26.2 minutes. It was the least I could do.
I don't even know what I did on Thursday but I know running wasn't involved.
Friday was another "rest" day but there was no resting to be done. Work was CRAZY. We were slammed and running around like crazy people. I need to start wearing a pedometer when I go to work. I'm sure I walk a million miles a day. I got a call while at work about Em and had to race to the pediatrician with her. She's doing so much better now but it was a horrible afternoon/night. I think I went to bed at 7:30pm.
Saturday turned into the type of day that we didn't plan. Originally the kids were going with my in-laws to a circus and we were going to have a few hours by ourselves. We were going to watch our friend who was competing in her first Cross Fit competition. But with Em being sick, only Noah went to the circus and we didn't leave the house. Once Em went down for a nap, I laced up my shoes and went out for a run. I did 2.25 miles and recorded my fastest mile to date. I wasn't trying for a fast mile either. I just went out there feeling great. I only did 2 miles because my shin pain started coming back and I didn't want to push it too hard. I did a 0.25 mile cool down walk before heading back to the house. When Noah got home, he wanted to go running so I took him out for a bit. We didn't go very far but let me tell you....the boy is fast. It was fun to be out there with him. I really hope I can instill the importance of a healthy lifestyle in him at a young age. And who knows, maybe he'll end up being a race partner for me!!!
