Today was a perfect day, well except for I had to work 11 hours but I am off now until Monday!
We have 8 tons of top soil being brought in tomorrow to replace dirt that has washed away from our house. I’m sure that won’t be enough but it’s enough to keep us busy this weekend. We have a ton of yard and repair work to do here.
The last few weekends have been spent in St. Louis for various reasons (birthday party, and a couple of runs) so it’s good to stay home a while.
We typically try to stay home every other weekend. It’s hard to go longer because I miss my little kiddies.
I am having lower back problems and not sure why. I think maybe it was a yoga move on Sunday night but not sure.
Today is day #18 of “Marathon Training” and I ran my 4 miles. Tomorrow is 3, rest Friday and Saturday is only 5! Hal Higdon’s training has a step back week every 3rd week and this is it.
Next week will be fairly tough and with the temps rising, won’t be easy.
I am feeling stronger and faster. I have better stamina. “They” say trust his training and I am trying. So far, so good. 🙂
My eating has been healthy, plenty of water and calories are good. I’m losing weight again. That might be an indication that I’m not eating enough but I’ll play that by ear. At first I picked up a few pounds during the training but I’m sure I will again.
Christmas at the Charlotte’s house today! I got my package that I ordered from “Hippie Runner.” I ordered several sweat wicking and awesome looking head bands. I met this owner at an “Expo” in St. Louis in April and bought an expendable gear belt and loved it.
I got the package quickly and he threw in a free one! They have tons of colors/styles to choose from.
I wore the pink one on my 4 mile run tonight and I loved it. It kept my hair and sweat out of my eyes. It didn’t slip and several other people on the trail asked me where I got it.
I think the Wonder Woman one is my favorite. 🙂
