This week has been crazy...I feel like I start every Thursday with that, but seriously, when is something going to give??
1) on the workout front, I haven't been able to workout with Nick at all this week:( And I have a long run scheduled for Saturday, but I have to leave for a wedding at 7am and I'm not sure I'll be able to get it in before then. I plan on being a little brown bottle fluish on Sunday, so I'm not sure about that either. I did manage to get 8 in yesterday and was so relieved to see my kids drive by that I flagged them down and had them take me home at 8.1....I had gotten too far out and was going to have to hit 9-10 to get home! Yikes! My knees are still a little bothersome...not as bad as before, but I'm still not loving going up and down stairs which is a little sad since my house is a bi-level.
2) I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with the long runs that my training plan has scheduled in the middle of the week. It seems that in the next few weeks I'm going to be putting 10-12 miles in on Wednesday...really?? I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to pull that one off...does it count if I have to break them up into two separate runs?? Like 5 at lunch and 5-7 more after work?? I'm really feeling the pressure of sticking to a plan...and my house has sure taken a hit (aka backseat), along with my laundry pile and social life. Good grief! IT WILL BE WORTH IT! Stay positive and focused...working on that, but I'm feeling very anxious about being able to get everything done!
3) I'm going to be out of town 3 weekends in a row. Yikes...with back to back weddings and a long overdue camping trip with the monkeys (look out south Carolina, here we come!!!) then school starts...and before I know it, October will be here. SIGH! I'm not overly thrilled with driving the three monkeys to South Carolina, but I really want to get to the beach!! And I'm super excited to see my girl Lindsay! The weddings should all be fun...I'll have lots of stories and pictures I'm sure...although I'm not sure if I will be able to post them:) Hopefully my friends and I aren't too crazy! So I'm asking this...please slow down summer...I'm not quite ready for you to end....sniff, sniff.
And don't forget about my giveaway...ends Aug 28th!
