Wow its been a while. A lot has gone on since my last post. I have had some good days, and some real bad ones as well. I ran my 2nd 5k on Friday night. I did way better than I expected. I finished in 35:17, that is 4 seconds faster than my first race. The results they sent me are as follows: "You placed 469th out of 742 finishers in a time of 35:17 for a pace of 11:22 per mile.Out of 417 women you finished 210th. The winning time for women was 17:51.For 30 to 39 year old women you were 37th out of 69 finishers. The winning time for your age and sex was 17:51." The course was quite a bit more difficult. It started with a huge hill right at the beginning. I ran the entire course.
Work is crazy right now, I don't even know what position I will be in a month from now. I guess I should just be thankful that I will still have a job (trust me I am, it is just a lot of change at once and someone else is in charge of my destiny).
Enough about that, it is time to lay out my goals for this week. Since I did not eat right or exercise yesterday this could be difficult.
1.) Get in at least 4 out of 5 of my running workouts in. I am going to Leadville on Saturday to hike with my sister, so that will be a good workout, but I don't want to run that morning before hand and be worn out all day.
2.)Strength training twice
3.)Log all food Tuesday thru Friday
4.)Try to think positive whenever I have a negative thought about myself
5.)Have fun, play with kids, try to be as healthy as I can so I can be around for them for as long as I can. You always needed your mommy no matter how old you are. I want to be there when my kids become grandparents!
The battery in my scale is dying, and since the number seems to be upsetting me this time, I think I am going to try not to weigh myself at all for the next two weeks, or even the next month. I've got to go make lunches and get this day started.
