To run again! SO HAPPY. I celebrated with ~2.6 miles on the treadmill. My pace was pretty slow and I walked at the very end, but I am SO thrilled to be running again!
When I talk to people and say that I can’t wait to be running again, I usually get a comment about how I shouldn’t pressure myself to lose the baby weight. Well, as annoying as baby weight can be, my desire to run has nothing to do with weight and everything to do with how much I love to run. I think it takes a fellow runner to understand where I’m coming from.
I’m going to keep track of my miles this year on GarminConnect. If you’re on there, look me up. My display name is “AbbyJo” and I really have no idea how to use the system. I was logging a lot of workouts last year, and it’s easy with a Garmin. But it took me a good 30 minutes last night to figure out how to record a run manually. I’d say that Lucy is making me stupid, but the truth is that I would have had trouble with it a year ago too.
Also Ashley and I plan on breaking our “together running” fast on Saturday with a very slow (and probably short) run. I missed my running partner! We did go see Les Mis together last Saturday, but that’s just not the same.
In other news, Lu and I both have very stubborn stuffy noses. Mine’s a little runny with a sore throat actually and I’m just waiting for it to become a full blown cold. However, I decided to be proactive in my health and well being and I bought a Breville Compact Juicer last week and I’m currently enjoying a grapefruit-apple-lemon-spinach-carrot-ginger juice. DELICIOUS. Why didn’t I buy one of these things sooner–like when I had an income?
And that’s about it for today. Stay tuned for more mindless and numbing posts about pretty much nothing at all.
