* One more week till school is left and I have two HUGE CSE's coming up. Anyone in the teaching world knows that this is not too much fun. Graduation for my fifth grade students will be this Tuesday. I love the graduation ceremony but I am a softy and pretty much cry each time...maybe not a full-blown cry...a weep. Yes, a weep. I'll save the full-blown cry for my kids.
* Running- I am going in to week 8 of marathon training. Yesterday I ran 12 miles after a 12 mile week. I'm not going to lie it was tough. Running this much is tough work people! I give credit to those of you have picked the marathon to have as your race of choice. I think after September my race of choice will be the half. I'm pretty sure my body likes that race better. I won't say definite though because when I was training for the half...my body was liking the 5ks. This is what's coming up in the HIGDON world this week.
3 m run
6 m run
3 m run
I am having difficulty swinging the summer runs and this schedule. For instance tomorrow is the 10k summer run and I'm not sure my legs are up to it yet. I am absolutely listening to my body first...then fun times, wanting to be in a race, relaxing with fun people and getting out will come after. I promise you left leg. (there are a lot of promises in this post...hmm) Also been trying to figure out my best options for recovery food. I've been downing a muscle milk after with a banana...been feeling okay with that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
*Hot, Hot, Hot-a new obsession of mine has been hot yoga. I really would have never thought I would like hot yoga because I am not a fan of sweaty people or smelly people and I am not crazy about being in really hot and humid places (except if I am laying down tanning with a drink in my hand...and an umbrella in the drink). After two classes this all changed for me. I absolutely love it. It loosens up my muscles so much and we know how much I need that since I've been missing my Jason sessions (lol..i love how he is now my jason). It makes me sleep sooooo well and it makes my skin feel like a baby's bottom! Yeah! You heard it hear first folks! Honestly though, it really works wonders with the deep muscles and I really don't think I would be able to keep up this mileage without it!
*Lukey turns TWO on Wednesday. Can you believe that??? Its nuts. There really isn't more to say about that. No big party this year because he is getting a swing set...which is redonkulous in price especially considering we live across the street from a park! It may seem silly to get a swing set when you have one across the street but that park is a double-edge sword...pretty much the same as the ice cream coming around the park every night at 6 30.
*Drinky, Drinky- Okay so we took the Pops out for lunch on Father's day and I had one cosmo. ONE. One cosmo and I was SHITE faced!! Really? As I write this I'm already milking a headache. What's up with that?? I guess my healthyish body doesn't really like the drinky, drinky.
|Drink of choice...cosmo. Maybe that's why...?|
|This is me having to sit only about 1/2 hour later...really?|
Do you drink and run? (Not at the same time lol) Meaning can you drink one night and do long runs the next..or am I just getting old?
