I slacked all week!  I'm so bad.. We did get up at 5am this morning though and went to the gym.  I did about 3 miles all together and burned just over 300 calories, then did some weights and sit ups, so it felt great to get that done and out of the way first thing!  I'm looking forward to the night with the girls, we are going to see the Vow at the cinebarre..  What could be better than girlfriends, a sappy movie and wine?!?  I have no idea what could be better than that.  Then tomorrow morning I'm off to the salon for a brand new hair do!  I'll post a pic if I like it!  TGIF!

Well, I had a nice long weekend, but didn't do one lick of working out or running.  I think I played too hard and didn't leave enough time or energy for it, but that needs to change!!  I did great last week, so I think I can get myself right back on track.  We were supposed to run 4 miles last night and didn't, so we'll have to do those 4 tonight and get back on track starting tomorrow.  Where is my motivation?  I don't know why it's been so hard trying to get into the groove again.  Once I'm there it feels great!!! I'll let you know how the 4 miles tonight goes tomorrow morning!!  Happy Tuesday!

3.5 miles Great time!

3.5 miles in 32mins 52secs last night with Jason.  We really pushed it the last mile so we could get our time up and hopefully help increase our overall average time.  I was freezing all day and all I really wanted to do was go home, build a fire and put my sweats on, but Jason talked me into running.  He's a good motivator!!  We tried a new run, mostly because it's dark out by the time we get home and get to run, so half of the run was along Hwy 99.  I actually like it, the sidewalk is bigger and it's much lighter and there is more to look at, but Jason doesn't really like running on Hwy 99, so we'll have to keep mixing it up and finding new routes.  The light is starting to be out longer each day, so soon we won't be running in the dark!  Looking forward to a fun filled weekend.  3 miles tomorrow and water aerobics hopefully on Sunday, sounds like the pool will be closed for a week, not sure if that starts Sunday or Monday.  We also have dinner plans with friends tomorrow and a concert to go to with friends Sunday and Monday is a holiday!  Wahoo.. TGIF everyone!

Run Last night...

Had 3 miles on the training schedule to do last night, and was set on 3 miles and that was it, but with the route we took, we had an extra half mile that I was dead set on walking.  Jason told me to just slow it down a little and finish out the run, so we did 3.5.  It actually felt good and I'm glad he was there to push me the extra distance.  I'm still dealing with a sore knee after about the two mile mark each time I run, but it's also getting a little less painful each time I run, so I think just taking it slow easy and following our training plan will really help condition my knee too!!  We have another 3.5 to run tonight, we will probably just do the same route!  Still trying to figure out my new Garmin.  I think I need a book called Garmin for dummies.  It's like a freaking computer on my arm!   Valentines Day was good for the family, the kiddos all had goodies out on the table in the morning to wake up too and Kenley wore her new outfit with a heart on her butt!!  We had heart shaped pizza and cookies for dinner..  All in all, a good day!

New to Blogging.  I am the mother of four amazing kiddos and am married to an amazing man.  I love my friends and family and have a great career.  My only downfall is I don't give myself enough time to do the things I love to do just for me.  One of those things is Running!  Last year I ran my first two half marathons and did awesome and truly fell in love with running.  However over the last year since those races, I have let myself get out of shape and let myself think that doing things for just me are not of great importance.  I was wrong and am ready to start doing something for myself again.  I am running the Bloomsday 12k in May in Spokane, Washington and put together a 12 week training plan that starts with 3 miles today.  I have kept running off and on and know I am easily able to run 3 miles at a 10 min pace.  So..... With that said, let the good times roll!!!
