Family and friends! This weekend I am headed to Jacksonville ( 3 hours North) to see my sister, BIL, and neice. My Neice Addyson is turning 1 this weekend and getting Baptized. The extended family will be down Sunday for the Baptism and her Birthday party!! What a wonderful way to spend the weekend!!!
Riddled with guilt for missing my tempo run yesterday and then turning off my alarm this morning and not getting up! I have been too tired to function lately! I was really pumped to run last night but we had so much on the schedule family- wise, that by the time I was able to go, it was 9:00PM and VERY dark. I do not like to run that late, in the dark, by myself ( yes, I am a scaredy cat!!). I set the alarm for an easy run this morning because my long run is tomorrow and I didn't want to do a tempo that close to my long run, but never fear, I did nothing, because I turned off the alarm and went back to sleep!!! LOVELY!!!
Itimidated a bit by my October training schedule!! Lots of speedwork and tempo runs........ I CAN DO IT!!! ( this is what I have to keep telling myself!) This will be my hardest, most challenging running month yet!! I have to say I am a bit excited too!!!
Determining how to handle my nutrition.....especially since when I called my sis and said we would not be getting to Jville till 7:30 or 8:00 tonight, she said....." oh, well don't go straight to the hotel, come over here first, we can drink......??, We need a drink!" WTF?? I told her my plan was to run 8 miles in the morning soooooo I will not be drinking tonight (BUT I might make up for it Saturday night cuz Sunday is REST day)!! I think my sister is a bit stressed out about this 1 year old Birthday Party ( it's her first child!LOL!) Anyway, I also ate an entire (900 calorie) Kashi pizza (my excuse - it was packed with fiber, Omega 3's, and protein) last night followed by a bowl of ice cream ( which might have been okay had I actually done my tempo run)! I really need to get my nutrition in check, especially as the miles start getting up there! I was doing great but the last few weeks, not so good, can you say fresh baked chocolate chip cookies at the Doubletree Hotel and a Cracker Barrel right around the corner last weekend, VERY BAD!!! I even asked the hotel front desk for a glass of milk to go with the cookies!!!!!
Anticipation my friends!!! I AM going to run 8 miles tomorrow! That will be my longest distance yet!! I am a bit nervous but notice that I said " I am going to" and not "I'm shooting for" or "I will try".......I am turning a new leaf and I am trying to be as positive as possible!!!
Yay!!! Yay! Yay! For the weekend! For time with my awesome hubby and boys! Yay for running 8 miles! Yay for all my bloggy running friends and their miles/races/runs this weekend! Enjoy!!
