My day in a nutshell.
Rough start but finished up strong.
Started off by trying to find out how hard I can run before I vomit (I start dry heaving at around 182 bpm in case you were wondering).
Always fun at 7:30 on a Saturday morning.
I decided to run the Spikes 5k instead of doing Jen's run test solo. The solo bike test left me shaking, shelled and contemplating texting Mike to send Ella downstairs to cheer me on the last 5 minutes. I could have used some of her patented "GO MOMMY GO" cheers.
Yes, I haven't really run since the half marathon 2 weeks ago and it's been 3 weeks since I did any type of speedwork, and oh yeah, this is a pretty hilly course, but, being me, I was, of course, planning for/hoping for a PR. (under 20:26).
Not so fast.
21:10. 4th female.
Come home down in the dumps to breakfast with Mike and the girls. Better already.
Go shopping with my best friend, Amanda, with, get this...NO KIDS. Definitely improving.
Dinner with Mike at Pure. My mom is babysitting the girls. Strawberry margarita in my hand.
5k? What 5k?
Me and the girls today....I made Mike take the picture (that E obviously was totally psyched to be in) because (1) I take 99% of the pictures and have a fear that the girls will think I was never around while they were little since I am not in any of the pictures and (2) I had blown my hair dry. Something that happens maybe once every 2 months. Yes, I am a very fancy lady.
