First 2.3 miles with Muscle Man and the Little Studs, quick stop to play at the park then run home solo.
Wow oh wow Welcome new Bloggy Pack members!!! And thank you ALL for your wonderful comments. Yesterday after weighing myself, I had a momentary pity party, it passed the minute I put on my spandex. Muscle Man loaded up the stroller and we drove to a local BEAUTIFUL park with a running/walking path. We run for about 2.5ish miles and at the end we let the kids play at the park, it is a very family friendly activity.
I am pretty sure some of the weight on the scale was water because of female stuff. I had stomach cramping while running that is not from muscles. I REALLY REALLY wanted to drive to Seattle and surprise Amanda at mile 8 and run with her for a while...but when I woke up I could tell I was not feeling well. PNW running Bloggers Amanda, Zoe and Kerrie all did great at the Seattle Half!!
Hubby and I talked about how the tables have turned...when I was first returning to running, after having Little Stud #2, on this path I would be gasping for air, begging to stop and I could not push the stroller and run due to crazy knee pain. Muscle Man made it look easy. Now 30lbs lighter and with mile and miles run I am the one who runs with ease. Poor Muscle Man has been stuck inside leaving little time for running. He had major pain...guessing it is from his OLD SHOES. After our run I went to the Brooks Outlet and bought him a fresh pair.
The Little Studs were awesome snacking on Carrots (Cheetos) and humming Star Wars. At one point the Carrot (Cheetos) bag landed on the ground, so I did a quick turn basketball move and was back in stride. Supermom to the rescue!!
These photos are totally posed...I am working on my next set of Seasonal pictures. Fall picture done!! Have you taken your Fall photo yet? We SPRINTED at the end and hit 2.3 miles. Thankfully the path ends at a flush able potty, we both had to go...
The Tall Mom boys! We played at the park for a while then headed home. I was not done running so I hopped out of the car with about 3 miles to home. I was tired, but I wanted to burn some extra calories. It felt good. At one point a lady, with her hair down, was being pulled by hound dogs...she was faster than me...for about 20 seconds..LOL.
- I made it home, weighed myself and was down 3 pounds!! I know it is not real, but I will take it. We all have our days when we get stuck in a little pity party, playing with Polly Pessimism. The trick is to find your way out and not to get stuck in a rut...
How do you escape the Monday, or any day, BLUES???
