It has been months since I have been on here, written on here, even browsed on here. I have been super busy and stressed and now that my oldest is in pre-school, I have a little extra time to start back up. When I left off last I was training for the San Diego Marathon. Well the hubby and I completed it and it was an amazing experience. I am going to save that for another post. Recent events in our life has inspired triggered me to start typing away again to try to find what things or events I like to write about the most. So here I am. I am excited to see which direction my blog takes me and at the end of the day if all it gets me is a little mommy wine time than so be it.
Last Saturday I did my 11 miles. We are into week 7 now so this week will be 12 miles. The last two big runs I have had to run with the kiddos and seriously....It. Was. Rough. I can only look at it s bettering ( is that a word?) my training. I am going to try to get to the health food store this week to get some liquid carbs to start training with. The hubs suggested it so we will see how my body responds to it.
In mommmyland I am dealing with a very spirited and creative almost 4 year old. And lets not forget the mobile 8 month old. I will say there is never a dull moment with two little babes running around. I now know I need to download pictures to the other computer to add any until the issue is resolved on this computer. So I will try to do that soon for you guys. Thanks for stopping by.
I have my big run this morning (it will be 7 today) and of course it is cloudy, cold , and looks like it possibly might rain. But I have to do it and I will get through it. My pace has been on target except for the other day when I ran with the girls. Pushing a double jogger weighing in at almost 100 lbs. is very difficult. But I figure if I train with that, then my pace will be that much better without pushing them. My goal is to lose between 15-18 lbs by the end of all this. That will put me back to pre- prenancy weight plus some. I have heard a bunch of good things about Chia seeds so I am going to give them a whirl. I am still struggling with food choices and I know my mind is better than that. On top of that, sleep has been a HUGE issue around here. I don't get any. That being said if anyone has any brilliant ideas on how to get a nursing 8 month old to sleep a solid 6 hours (HECK I'll take 4) then you would be my angel!! Hope you have a great weekend!
Good morning to you all. I wanted to catch you up on whats happening over here . The hubby and I have decided to run the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon this year. I turned 30 just last week so I thought what better time than now! We are starting on week three of the training and it has been good so far. I trained once before a few years back but never ended up running it. This year it is done and paid for so there is no turning back. We are going to follow the Marathon Rookie 16 week training schedule. I will try to keep you guys up to date on how it is going, especially when we get to the really big runs.
