Well Howdy doo dee. The girls and I took last night off due to schedule conflicts, and just because we should be taking SOME days off. Tonight we all felt a little crappy I think. I had Dominos for lunch (best sandwich ever btw) and drank a lot of coffee. Getting going in the beginning of the jog was a bit of a struggle but did we ever get our second wind?! Yes ma'am. 2.2 miles of pure, wet, beautiful running. It was great. I was so amazed at our progress I couldn't help but sound like a cheerleader, chanting things like " Holy S***! Look how far we are going!! ".
Okay, so we warmed up for probably 3 minutes, cooled down for probably 5... but that is necessary. We also had to stop for a train but jogged in place like a bunch of douche bags (pardon my francais) while we waited for it. I felt AMAZING tonight. We are progressing very quickly. Running almost 2 miles is one thing on a treadmill, but out on the streets...with hills and puddles and car dodging?! I am proud of us.
Things on the home front are not going as smoothly today so I am going to take a little down time this evening with a beer and some quiet time ( if the kids allow it).
I guess I will say it again. This, by far is the best decision I have ever made solely for myself. Period. Until next run!
