A really really long week. Just trying to keep my head above water. I haven't worked out much but I have gotten my eating overall under better control, partly because I have been so busy at work that I just didn't have time to eat.
Wednesday was the no-good-very-bad-day. I felt like I was running in place at about 60 mph and getting nowhere. Every task I would start would get interrupted by another one and it just happened over and over and over... I do so hate days like that. Usually busy-ness makes the day go by faster, but this wasn't the case on Wednesday... I looked up and couldn't believe it was only lunchtime for all the crazy busy. Then a snippy comment from a co-worker just topped the day off like a rotten cherry on melted dried ice cream.
I haven't exercised as much as usual... but those times were both really good runs on the treadmill in my new skeletoes shoes, which I am really coming to love... My toes really like them, keeps them from being stiff and uncomfortable. They really stretch out nicely in them.
I liked them so much that I got a more bottom-padded pair for outdoor running.
Tomorrow I am running a 5K. My ambition is to run the whole thing. I know I can run 2 miles without stopping. So let's go for 3.1!! I hope I can beat my time from last year, which was 30:41, iirc. If you are in Central Texas, it's a first time 5K for the Third Cav (www.braverifles.org)... I hope they had t-shirts left since I registered late.
Here's to the weekend and a better next week!
