Back to me.
This past week's training stunk. Like skunk in your living room stunk. As in I didn't train, really. At all, stunk.
I think I may have run Monday night, an easy 3 miler after I spent all day thinking it was a rest day. Then Tuesday came and I had body aches, chills, a head ache, my throat hurt. I was dying. No drama here.
So Tuesday I went to bed at like 8 PM, struggled through work on Wednesday. Came home and again was in bed by 8 PM. Thursday came, I felt a little better. Probably could have hit an easy, easy 3 miler but family duties prevailed and The Hubs was headed to VA Beach for the funeral service of a good friend and a fallen comrade. I had no run in me and didn't really care.
I was flying solo Thursday through Saturday. Friday I just said, forget it and took LB to the Sweet Frog to celebrate TWO things:
|My sweet froginess-delicious.|
|LB's sweet froginess--very kid-o-licious. I actually would not have eaten that....|
Celebration Reason #1: Having only ONE incomplete all week long on his weekly progress report (seriously, overall he got a U for this?)
Check plus is like an A+. check is like an A. and check minus is like an A- . INC is incomplete.
Why is 1st grade so complicated? Sheesh....
|He's becoming a pro at x-rays.|
So we, ok ok...I needed a treat for surviving that ordeal. Sweet Frog it was and boy was it delicious! If yoru wondering, Sweet Frog is a place with like 30 different soft serve frozen yogurt flavors and a million different things you can put on top. Then you pay by the pound. When we checked out and our total was a bit over $10 LB said, "Look mom! It wasn't $100! Can I get more M&M's?" Kids.
Saturday came and LB had a basket ball game-he won 10-6! Go Bobcats!! Then it was off towards Raleigh to meet my brother for lunch! This may be his first appearance on 5 Miles Past Empty! He was only town for a little bit but it was great to see him.
And of course you can't have a visit from the Uncle without receiving a firearm....
We came home and The Hubs arrived shortly after and was fully engaged in a(nother) Nurf War.
An today, I got to meet Andrea for our long run of 11 miles! Oops, no picture of that, but I did get a picture of my Nathan Handheld water bottle because I thought it was cool how much stuff I could fit in there...
|work on-call cell phone, GU, pocket knife, key fob.|
So tomorrow starts anew! I am feeling better, kicked my cold or flu to the curb and am ready to get back to my plan!!
