Training - Day 4

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Ended up running 5 miles last night before dinner - woo hoo - and had lasagna for dinner. Had to hustle to pack lunches for next day and wash a load of clothes before Survivor. I made it with 5 minutes to spare, good thing, because if I sat down 15 minutes before it came on, I would have fallen sleep, the run really whipped me last night.

Overslept, AGAIN this morning, but not a bad thing, I caught up on some much needed sleep, been running on low fuel in that department.

Leaving work a little early today. Gonna go home and bust out a quick workout, shower, then meet my son for dinner. I don't get to see him too often and he's moving on Saturday to Maryland. Makes me sad to think my son will now be 4 hours away. But hopefully this will be a great move for him, new job, new people, new life. Glad he's getting "it" together.

Dinner - it's Mexican, my son's favorite, so I will have to extra careful not to suck down a whole bowl of tortilla chips, I know it will be a very emotional dinner, saying goodbye.

This is going to be a happy and sad kinda day, just hope to make it through. "LIFE" it happens.

    Enjoy your supper tonight it sure sounds like you deserve it. Even though 4 hours seems so far away, it is much easier to keep in touch now than it was when we moved away from home, I'm sure your son will always be close.

    First, awesome job on the run last night! Second, don't sweat it on the sleeping in this morning. Obviously, your body needed it! Third, I can only imagine how you are feeling about your baby moving four hours away. I have only one son and he's 19. Went away to college last year and then came back to attend a local college this year. I missed my baby terribly, but love that he's back. I know one day he'll graduate and find a job somewhere else. That is his goal! I don't blame him! When that day comes, I'll cry my eyes out, but know that he is on his life's journey and he'll be ready. I need to find somewhere else to "vacation" anyway. Hopefully, he'll find a job somewhere warm! Fourth...MEXICAN? emoticon That's my all-time favorite! All I can say is enjoy! You deserve it. You can rock out six miles tomorrow morning. emoticon Unless, of course, this is you instead... emoticon . Oops! You said chips...not tequila!

XOXO Sherry

    Yes Be Strong - I am sure he will do well. It's hard being hours away from family. The times that you will have together now will be one's to cherish. Enjoy them and keep them.
Good for you on your 5 mile run.
You are such an inspiration to me. Thanks for being such a great SP friend.

    Be strong! Remember you raised him to be an individual, and this is what he needs. It means you did your job right!

And many
