My alarm went off this morning 6 and I SERIOUSLY contemplated rolling over and going back to bed. I told myself that I could go to the gym after B’s soccer game and that I REALLY didn’t feel like running. Something in me fought back though and I got up. Maybe a part of me knew I really wouldn’t have the energy to go to the gym right before lunch. Whatever it was – I’m I went.
I ran 6 very slow miles (pretty much at a 10:00/mile pace). My legs were tired and I thought about quitting at least 3 times. At my turnaround I saw a random 5K starting and it pushed me to keep going. I ran “with” the runners (on the opposite side of the sidewalk) for about a mile and then just dug and deep and finished the last 2 miles. Today was a mentally tough run. I wasn’t in it at all, but I definitely don’t regret it. I do think it’s the hard runs (whether physical or mental) that makes you stronger.
B’s soccer game was at 10 today (hello hot!), so we left the house @ 9:30 in order to make a Starbucks run (I am addicted to their breakfast sandwiches). We made it to the game just in time because parking was a pain! I definitely prefer 8:30 games.
After the game we hit up Target where I bought these “so ugly they’re cute” espadrilles. Not needed, but they are super comfy – and my feet as all about comfy these days.
After a quick lunch and watching half of the movie Up, it was NAPTIME! The kids were WORN OUT from this morning and didn’t fight me for even a second. I even got a nap in too, which honestly sucked. I kept drifting to sleep and then waking up. Plus, my bunion is KILLING me today. Not worth it – but oh well. At least the kids slept.
Now, we are finishing up Up (love this movie) and possibly going outside to play in the HOT FL sunshine (L is insisting on wearing her boots) before the kiddos kill each other inside.
Tonight — the hubby is planning on watching the first Orlando Magic Playoff game (Go Magic!!), while I get a few margaritas with Tracy! Love my girl time 🙂
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!
