No sense in worrying about hubby's surgery as there is nothing we can do about it until it's time to go, which will be at least 17 days from now. He seems to be doing fine emotionally and it isn't going to help him for me to fall apart! So, it's time to live.
I ran 8 miles with my Galloway group this morning. It was the hottest, most humid run of the year and I think everyone could feel it. We ran about 13 minutes per mile, definitely slower than last week's pace in much cooler weather, with some miles a little slower and some a little faster. The group was honestly a little slow for me, so it didn't strain me. Found out who will be leading and who will be in my group next running season, beginning June 21st. I really like everyone and think we'll be a great group. Fritz, the 77 year old role model, is in my group for the first time! He has a wonderful sense of humor, so that will be fun. Several younger women will run with Brendan, our former Program Director, as our leader. He is extremely knowledgeable about running, injury prevention, and injuries, so I feel blessed!!
All the paperwork is filled out and my National Weight Control Registry envelope - postage paid even - is ready to go. My WW leader was quite willing to support my efforts.
I did the SparkRecipes slowcooker chicken with salsa and black beans last eve. It has definitely become a family favorite. Tortillas are good with it, but last night I made cornbread which turned out to be a hit. (There was no soup or sour cream in my recipe: just salsa, black beans, a little corn and the chicken. Adding additional low sodium taco seasoning would probably be good. Sometimes I've used fresh cilantro and that is good! )
My Garmin Forerunner 10 with the broken strap works fine in my pocket, but Garmin has committed to send me a new strap at no cost. Yeah.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy Saturday!!
