Ya gotta love me!!!! I'm about as corny as they come! Sorry smhall and myself have been MIA this week! Steve is gone on a business trip and I have been busy doing all the lovely stuff a domestic goddess with kids and grandkids do... PLUS! It's HALLOWEEN TIME! My very favorite time of the year! I have been decorating and shopping! Shhhh.....don't tell Steve! See what happens when he leaves for a week?
Post grad updates! Due to conflicting schedules and miscellaneous crap, we are only averaging about 1 run per week. This will soon change (hopefully) when Steve gets back home. During the program, we made it a priority to run...we need to do it again.
We did commit to a couple of 5k's! One 5K will be in the evening and it is Halloween themed so we can dress up! The other 5K will be the following weekend. We don't have parkruns here so every 5K is usually for charity etc. Its nice to know we are helping in some way, but this can get kinda expensive! PLUS...as always, we NEED more running gear...goodies...all the stuff that makes us cool runners.
I am still fighting the hip/knee pain. I tried running a few nights ago without the brace and only made it 8 minutes. Time to probably go see a doc... I am doing all the homeopathic stuff which seems to help a bit... cherry juice, ginger, turmeric...plus anti-inflammatory meds. Steve use to bring me cute little gifts or flowers when he went on a business trip. Last week he returned with a tube of deep penetrating pain relief cream. I'm down about not being able to run well...but this too shall pass...I just need to try and keep a good attitude compared to using the dratted F word... _ailure... Its depressing to know I have came this far to now not be able to progress like I want. Okay, pity party over!
Looks like everyone is doing FANTASTIC! CONGRATULATIONS to all of the new grads!!!
I promise to check in more often, I am still reading most of the blogs, just not posting like I should...so know even though I am still somewhat MIA, I'm still checking up on you!!!!
