I am totally off my game this morning. I seemed to have forgotten to snap a photo of this morning’s breakfast, as well as my run being a bit on the wonky side- let me explain.
Workout: I am currently on Week 5 of C25K, and I suppose I have taken the weekly training schedule for granted. I just assumed this week would be like all the previous weeks, same routine, for three days a week. Well, apparently Week 5 is the beginning of torture training, because each day consists of a different interval routine. Oops. So imagine, here I am running along, thinking my five minutes is up soon followed by a three minute walk. Well, after running, and running, and running, I finally looked down at the time left and saw I STILL had three minutes left. I kept thinking- “Dang, this is taking forever”. Yeah, I was obviously having a blonde moment this morning. This was not a repeat of Tuesday’s run. Here’s what I did: 5 min warm up walk, 8 min of jogging, 5 min of walking, 8 min jogging. Once that last 8 min of jogging ended, I was expecting another torturous run, but thankfully it was over. The humidity was especially high again, and I even got the dreaded side stitch from all that crazy breathing. Not my best run, but it’s done. I jumped ahead on my app schedule to see what Saturday’s run has in store, and let me just say- the creator of c25k must be nuts. I’ll leave it at that. 🙂
Breakfast: I wasn’t very hungry when I got back from my run, so I waited a bit before I reheated Dennis’ eggs and had a piece of cinnamon raisin whole wheat toast, topped with part skim ricotta and sliced banana. That toast was so good- but sorry for no pic 😦
Yesterday was a BIG day for us over here. I took Meredith for a surprise visit to Claire’s to get her ears pierced! She’d been begging me to get them pierced for a while now, so I thought the day before her birthday party would be a good time to do it. She had no idea what was going on until I told her to hop up in the chair and pick a pair of studs. Suddenly she began to panic a bit and told me she wanted to get her ears pierced, just not ‘today’. After pep-talking it up a bit, she finally calmed down and climbed back in the chair. She picked a pair of crystal aquamarine studs, and she absolutely loves them! Yay!
Now I’m off to clean house and prepare for tonight’s party! Meredith is beyond excited!!
Enjoy your Thursday!
