Getting ready to go for my long run this morning, got toned for a cardiac arrest. I know, I know, its my day off. Well, paramedics in a rural county don't really get days off. My dad and I went. Not a good ending.
I am leaving for my best friend's house soon. Her baby shower is today. Its about 3 hours one way. I can't wait to see her.
I don't think I will have time to get my run in. I'm a little bummed.

and I couldn't sleep last night.
I agreed to cover the second half of my dad's shift and we had a late call, so I didn't get home until after 0100 this morning. Of course, I couldn't go to sleep right away. It was after 0200 before I actually got in bed and laid there until at least 0400. I woke up at 0630, let the dog out and forced myself to go back to bed for an hour. Got up again to give my granny her meds. I am beat. I better sleep better tonight! LOL
I talked to my friend Jenny yesterday. We are meeting at 1030 for a long bike ride. I'm curious how I'll do on the bike with all the running I've been doing. No matter which we direction we ride from here, its uphill. Lots and lots of climbing. I haven't seen Jenny in forever. We used to swim regularly together and we used to work together until I got laid off. I'm eager to catch up and get a good workout at the same time.
Have a great Saturday!

I worked from home yesterday. I was so focused on work that I forgot to blog.
Things to be happy about:
- even though I didn't eat what was prescribed, I did stay in all my ranges. WOOT!
- even though I ddin't workout, my body feels rested and ready to tackle a 3 mile run today
- I got to see my husby all day yesterday even though he was working in the garage and I was working on the computer, I got kisses every time he came in for a cup of coffee. :) :) :)
- I got to go back to my home :( but did get to spend time with Mom and Granny
- I came home to a clean, warm house
(I am going to skip all the negative things I would say right now. Trying to keep in the positive self talk mindframe!)
Things to look forward to:
- I want to play bridge with Mom and Granny this evening
- Going for a run at lunch
- Riding the bike trainer tonight while I watch NCIS
- Staying on track
- Getting to snuggle up with my dog tonight
Have a great Thursday!

I am having an "off" day. Not like, I'm in a bad mood or anything, but just off.
I didn't have my coffee this morning, so I have a caffiene deprived headache now. I still went and ran at lunch. My run was so so.
I would rather talk about yesterday's run. I am on the last week of couch to 5k, so I'm walking for 5 minutes and running for 30 minutes without stopping. I was able to run 3 miles in under 30 minutes, at my PR min/mile time... 9:52. I set a half mile PR yesterday at 4:37. I've decided that by the end of next season I want to do a 5k in 27 minutes. That's my long term goal. With the success I've had with couch to 5k, I think I can do it.
I went on a shopping frenzy yesterday. Winter is rapidly approaching and I don't have a lot of warm clothes that fit, so I went to the... *gasp* MALL. I HATE the mall. HOWEVER, I did go to Old Navy and picked out some cute tops and sweaters to wear for work... All were size S. :)
I've never been a small anything I said to myself.
I rushed home after the mall, folded laundry, changed laundry, unloaded the dishwasher and made dinner. WHEW. I never made it to the pool.
I get to work from home tomorrow because my truck needs to go into the shop. I really appreciate the ability to telecommute. Hopefully I can get things squared away with it, get some new tires put on it and aligned, so I'll be ready for winter.
Love and hugs my fellow sparkers!
