Today it was sprinkling beautifully so I had to run. That, and I signed up for my rad race today and thought I had better be getting more mileage under my toes if I’m going to be in condition to run 3.1 miles by August 10th. Yep! I signed up! Gigi and I are running under the team name “Pink Shazam!”
To celebrate, I ran one mile in 11:40 with my girl and the whole family came out for the second mile. Again, my son ‘Flash’ (instead of Dash, now) challenged me to the next post, the next corner, tree, house- whatever, so that mile was walk/ran in intervals, ending up at about 13 minutes. I had a fabulous time.
On a side note…
I get confused with how much I actually eat versus how much I want to eat. Like, tonight I was entering my food into my journal and thought, “Man. I really did it today. I regret my choices, ooh wee!” And then I actually enter in my calories and am in shock when I hit below my targets. I must think about snacks a lot if I imagined I ate them. It amazes me how often I need to tell myself no!
