BETTER SORE THAN SORRY!
Happy Friday! I think I’m back to normal!! Nothing like retail therapy and cheesecake to get cured from any kind of sadness, deprivation, sickness or moodiness. Today I took the day off with a friend and drove over to Buffalo. If Janathon counted walking for over 4 hours, I would not have done a run. We spent most of the day shopping and walking (when normally, we both have desk jobs and would have been sitting all day). I got a great haul! Although I got charged taxes again on my way back through the border, I guess that’s how it works (this was my first time!!). I recently read one of Suzan’s posts (Welcome to The Nut House) where you were struggling finding Jeans and this year your goal is to find Jeans that aren’t so Mom Jeans like. I’m excited for you for finding some pretty awesome jeans because that was my biggest excitement today! I found 2 pairs today and in an entire year, I am lucky if I can find 2 pairs of jeans that fit me properly!!! Although I’m not a mom and don’t have the mom jean complex, I have the, I’m short with thick legs and well, I’m short! Finding jeans that fit me is tough because most stores don’t even carry sizes that fit me and if the waist is the right size, I normally can’t even get them past my calves. So, two pairs of jeans, a bunch of candles, a new pair of running shorts, a warm long sleeve running top, and a visit to The Cheesecake Factory, I think I’m back to normal!!!
After getting home from a mini road trip / shopping spree, I got home and laced up. I had a wonderful 30 minute run. A little tough wanting to stop each time I knew I hit a mark (1 km, 10 minutes, 2 km). I just thought, Beach Body, I want that more than I want to stop now so each time I wanted to stop I told myself at each 10 minutes I would walk 1 minute. There we have it, Janathon Day 17 completed with my regular mini session of strength training afterwards. Oh and the strength training is working, my upper back and stomach/core have been a little sore lately when I wake up (all the spots I’ve been targeting)!! This is good sore!! 😀
Thank you to everyone who has been sooooooo extremely supportive in this time while I’ve been sick and then moody. No one like a crabby sicky pants so here I am thanking you for your patience and support. Can’t wait to log some more kms like I did today to make up for those less fortunate runs!
Happy Weekend and Good Luck to all those running this Weekend!
I know Ashley’s (Miles on Oats) doing her second Half Marathon – You’ll be amazing!!
I’ll be reading some more blogs to see what else you’re all up to 🙂
Keep being awesome and never stop!
