Today for my 43 I did a weighted sit-up. I just used 5 pound dumbbells and reached them to my toes as I did the full sit-up and then pressed them straight up on the way down.
I ran today (first time in a week!). This week I’m trying to focus on running on tired/sore legs as part of my preparation for my 50 mile race which is just 2 months away. It is a very fine line for me to have weeks with higher mileage and yet stay injury free.
Today’s run was a steady pace (8:00 minute miles) for 8 miles with a 1.5% incline on the treadmill – 64:00 minutes plus an easy 0.75 mile to cool down. It is really hard for me to keep the pace even (I get bored and want to play around with the speed) but I did because I’m trying to focus on getting in extra miles not speed right now!
Today is the first day of school – how is that even possible?! I love summer – the sun, the heat and most of all having the boys home!!! We pretty much always have a good time together even when we aren’t doing anything major.
Summer has flown by and now we are entering a new phase!
I sent both boys to preschool without batting an eye! All day kindergarten? No problem!! In fact, the day Hunter started kindergarten, I hosted a brunch for all my friends who were sending their youngest to school. We had mimosas and everything!!!
But, 2 years ago, when I dropped Jordan off for his first day of middle school, I thought that I was going to have a complete breakdown before the day ended!! I was a shaky mess pretty much the entire day.
Today I will leave my baby (Hunter) at the middle school for the first time and my first-born (Jordan) will have his first day as a high school freshman.
I’m not sure that I’m ready for this! I feel like I’m at a point where I want to start rewinding the years because I’m going to wake up soon and be packing my boys to leave home. I better stop now before I dissolve in a puddle on the floor.
Happy Tuesday!! I hope I survive the day – I just want them to have a great start to the year!!
