So a bit of everything for this post...
3 out 4 people in the family are sick. I am one of them. We all have colds...thank God it is not the flu.
I have major congestion. I blame the crazy weather. It is cold then it is hot then cold again then 85...
I had to do my long run Saturday instead of today because Bill started to play soccer and his practice was this morning. Of course today it was about 12 degrees cooler than yesterday.
I was miserable for my run right from the start. I kept thinking of turning around and do the long one today. I would have had to get up at 5:30 AM. Was not sure I wanted to head out alone at that time...I kept going while thinking about all this and I reached mile 5 and decided to just hang in there. It was not pretty. I had some pain in my left knee. Second time this happens...it is like a pinching feeling...I don't like it one bit. It was hot...and it felt sluggish for 75% of it but I did not turn around.
This was followed by first day of spring training for minor league baseball for Will. He was supposed to play soccer but practices were going until after 9 pm and that is too late for an 8 yrs old in my opinion! So we are doing baseball instead. He is not the greatest at that sport so I was a little worried but he did OK I think.
Last week was report card time for the second trimester.
Straight As for both.
Will scored 100% on all his benchmark tests for the second trimester in a row. He is the only one who did that.
I am very proud of both of them.
We were invited to go to Disneyland on Thursday and because they did so great I accepted.
It was a short day that day..school was out at 1:30 so we went for the afternoon.
We got to go to the new Carsland.
It is fantastic.
This is the best ride ever... Radiator Springs. It is a race and this is the finish line. I look like I am crying on the picture but really I was laughing!!
Because I am sick...still and also the knee pain...I decided to rest today and skip my 4 miler.
I have a half marathon this weekend; San Diego Half Marathon and I am looking forward to it and I would love to be feeling better by then...so if it means resting more...than so be it.
I have been pretty tired lately...something pretty serious happened at the school...not sure that story belong on a the blog...that's why I have not mentioned it before....but it has brought some stress and unpleasant conversations...I know this is not making a lot of sense but I can say my boys are OK and they did not get in trouble..but one of them was involved in a situation that is serious. Maybe more on this later...I would be curious to know what you guys think about what happened....
Anybody running San Diego?
