This week was post race week.
Monday I went to the Dr and it took forever...don't you hate waiting for the Dr? I do. I show up on time. I expect them to do the same! I had the FIRST appt of the day. No excuses! Anyway, I got my lab results, once again not good. So my thyroid meds were increased.
Tuesday I went for 4 miles and I felt good. I ran in my Brooks and I am liking them more each time I use them. I like that they have a bit of cushion.
Wednesday: Dentist. Yikes. It was HELL. I had a Deep Cleaning and laser treatment and it is not fun. Aouchy. I had planned to go to the gym after my appt and let me tell you that I did not make it. I was feeling a bit drowsy after that, so much that I forgot we were Wednesday and that this is a modified day at our school and that means early dismissal. I was supposed to pick Will up at 1:30 pm. At 2:00 pm I realized that I forgot my kid. MOM OF THE YEAR.
Thursday: I went for 5 miles tempo with my Brooks again. It went great. I was happy and mad at the same time. I wished I had ran like that for Surf City! I came home and was looking at the upcoming races and saw that next weekend is the Pasadena Rock N Roll Half Marathon and it is not sold out.
So now I want to do it. Registration is open until Sunday.
Is that crazy?
2 half marathons, 2 weeks apart.
It is the inaugural race for Pasadena. It looks like it will be a good one. I am close to Pasadena so I would sleep at home and no "long" commute.
Do you like the RNR races? I have never done one. I read all the horror stories about Las Vegas so I know about that...but what about the other cities?
I am disappointed with my time in Surf City and I want to erase that from my head and get another chance at 13.1 right now.
Bill says do it.
Today I did just 3 miles because we had the annual Jog-A-Thon at our school and I wanted to help out. Tomorrow I am doing another 3-4 miles for Sherry Arnold and Sunday I think I will go for 10 miles if I go ahead with Pasadena RNR. That will put me at 26 miles.
Jog A Thon was great! I love that this is one of the fundraisers we have for the school. It raises money for our PTA and makes the kids move instead of just selling a bunch of crap. It was really hot for a winter day....
2nd Grade: Will
This one cracks me up...Jonathan splashing Will as he passes by...and the look on his face after he got him!!!
