The Run that Almost Didn't Happen

I had a 10k (6.2) on the schedule tonight. I set another PR (since my last timed race). I ran it in 62.24 minutes. I had (still have) very tired legs. It's going to be nice to have a rest day tomorrow. My legs are looking forward to it. I like running on tired legs, because I'm hoping that I'll get use to that feeling and during my 1/2 and it won't be so bad. I don't know, just a theory. We'll find out in 5 weeks!

I really didn't want to run tonight. It's so rainy, cold, windy and cloudy. I just wanted to go home (from work) and be with my hubby and cuddle while eating my warm, yummy dinner. After tweeting about this, I received some good words and decided to go. I knew it wold be the best thing and I always feel better once I accomplish my run. I'm very happy I went! The PR was just a plus!

Tonight's dinner was made in the crock pot. I love that thing. Best wedding gift we got! When I got home from being out in the cold, windy rain, the house was warm and smelled of yummy Santa Fe Chicken.

It may not look appetizing, but it was good. I need to stir it more next time, I didn't get hardly any corn or beans. I'll take another picture after I dish it out correctly. I'm not on a diet of any type, (this seems to be a Weight Watchers dish), but it sounded really good! Now, I'm off to try to catch up on my dvr. I've been so busy and not home enough that I've been slacking on watching tv. I love tv, so I must watch a lot of it!


  1. good luck with your running. I too love TV ..

  2. You'll never regret a run! Awesome job on the PR! You're getting so much faster lately!!
