Three Things Thursday: Not running, What's Beautiful and kids
Posted May 23 2013 6:51am
1. Let's see what have I been up to...still not running, but surprisingly I have reached some sort of acceptance on that. I have come to realize the big picture shows that if I rest now I will be running happier sooner. Trying to push it early was only stagnating and or reversing any healing. A little frustrating that it happened now when it is so AWESOMELY nice out for running and not when it was wintry cold or later this summer when it is awfully hot. In the end it is what it is. Truth be told it is kind of nice to take a break from it. I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself to get the runs in, it can be a lot of work finding a babysitter, getting there, etc.
Not that I will be whining when my leg is ready to run again.
I haven't charged my Garmin or my iPod in over two weeks. I don't plan to for at least another week. and maybe even longer as I get back into running. I don't want to put any pressure on myself to run a certain pace.
2. This week seems to have been crazy busy so far and I haven't been able to update my What's Beautiful page, but I plan to work on that today. So far I have done 20 of the challenges. One challenge I have been taking on weekly is the pushup challenge. I did it this week too, but didn't get it on video. Last week I did 30 pushups in a row and this week..35. I love progress. That's beautiful.
3. Tomorrow is the last day of kindergarten for my little cowboy. That went so fast! I am so proud of him. He has learned so much and I love all the great things his teacher has had to say about what a nice and polite boy he is. Makes me feel like I am doing something right.
Hard to believe my little cowgirl will be going to kindergarten in three months.
