Five Points.

Just keeping it simple and fun!!

5 things that got me through my long run today:
  1. Prayer..lots of prayer. "God please give me the strength because I am depleted.
  2. Saw a Deer..I love wildlife. Took a second an "Awed"
  3. Chia water ...it was so refreshing, I drank all 20ozs.
  4. Reminding myself that 20 miles today was not 26 miles in 7 weeks. So suck it up, Nita!
  5. "Turn them over Nita, if you are still breathing then RUN."
 5 things I thought about on my RUN or related to my run:
  1. Ran 20 miles with out keeling over, puking or crying.
  2. Laughed when I was running up a hill at mile 18, I thought I was going slow so I looked at my pace and it said 9:11....AND I thought..AMEN...CALL FREAKING EMERGENCY I think I left my hips 2 miles back!!
  3. I was trying to figure out how I was going to pick up my miles to get to 20 without ANYMORE HILLS!
  4. Thought the weather would be great for the Bayshore Marathon..until I was coming back and felt the wind about blow me over. Changed my mind!
  5. I was thankful I am comfortable myself. For being a loner. I like not being busy. The busier I am the more misbehaved I have potential to be.
5 things about my Overall DAY:
  1. Austin was sick today. He got in the shower and got right back out and crawled in my bed. Soo sad to see him so sick. He is a tough cookie. He woke back up at 9:30 and asked me to take him to school so he wouldn't have any homework. Firstborns are often overachievers. I took him in after he begged me.
  2. Couldn't find my clone to get Alec to baseball practice and make Austins CC meeting. Somehow got it all done.
  3. Left Sheba in the house for 3 hours while I ran without crating her!! NO accidents..that I have found.
  4. Loved watching Alec practice at baseball. None of us play! It was his idea and he is pretty good at it!
  5. Austins Cross Country meeting was interesting.  I am going to remain positive. There is a new coach. I think she will be good ..I offered my help. She said she has a assistant who was running a Boston Qualifier...So they must be qualified?? I didn't tell her I qualified 2 times and ran it once -I just said I would help where she needed me. I don't think she is going to ask!

  1. 1. It's my first day NOT logging my food. Its time to move beyond the discipline and leave my training wheels behind.

    2. I'm currently addicted to avocado and I'm not sure that's a good thing..."An avocado a day keeps the doctor away?" ...not.

    3. Compression shorts are straight from heaven. The one run I didn't wear them since buying them I thought surely everyone in the row of treadmill is watching my junk jiggle.

    4. Sharing the journey of healthy living is lovely. I still like my solo runs.

    5. I think my first 10K on Saturday should be memorable -rain and all!

    Have a great weekend Nita! HUGS :)
