Tired

Saturday: 14 miles (ran 13, walked 1)

Tuesday: 4 miles – 37:54

I was really tired after school today, but I HAD to run! I got home and stalled for about half an hour before I finally got dressed and went outside.  I always think it is tough taking two days off after a long run, but hardly ever get to run on Mondays during the school year.  I made myself go outside and aimed to run between 9:30-9:40.  I am still getting used to running hills because I took so much time off from them when I hurt my calf.  I ALMOST had negative splits and was very happy to push it for the last two miles.  I was breathing heavy but it felt good!

I have been braiding my side bangs back into a ponytail when I run.  Then, I braid the pony tail and spin it around into a bun.  Not always the cutest, but it is so much better than having my huge ponytail smack me in the back of the head for a few hours.  I have been letting my hair grow out even longer until I decide what I want to do with it for my October wedding :)

I made this chicken soup slow cooker recipe for dinner tonight, but only had a small bowl.  It was okay, but I just wasn’t in the mood for it.  Colby’s throat hurt and he wanted Ritas. I think this is an east-coast water ice place and it is great.  I am obsessed with the chocolate flavor. No dairy, so no stomach ache for me! Colby was super sweet and got my chocolate Ritas.  It tasted great with…

Vanilla cupcake flavored goldfish!! So good… and I am on such a goldfish cracker kick right now.  I love them!

I am VERY excited to get this weekend over with… I run my 20 miler on Saturday and have to submit my final graduate project for my Master’s degree!!! I am soooooo tired but sooooo excited to get these two big things over with! After the 20 miler, my marathon plan tapers down and I just have to make it to race day.  My legs feel good, but I’m burnt out.  I’m not sleeping well at night and I’m hungry all the time.  I can’t wait to be finished running on the rail trail and finished with my last grad class.  Then I just have to get through 5 school concerts in May and everything will be sooooo much easier!  I can’t wait to run the mileage I want and get back into yoga and other exercise classes!!
