Sloth Sunday: Success!

5 years ago

someecards.com - Some women run to enjoy there sweets not me I run to enjoy an Ice cold beerToday was a rest day. I took the dogs for a walk.  That was it. I decided it was better to rest and heal up the blister and toe issues than to take a one step forward, one step back approach. So back to the trail to run 5 on Monday.

In case it hasn't been clear, I have made some decisions regarding my immediate running future.  The thought of long runs (anything 90- minutes +) was making me DREAD running, so I decided it wasn't worth it.  I am not going to take something I love to do and twist into something I dread.  So no more long runs.  No more half marathons.  Until I want to.  Whenever that may be.  I am FINE with this decision and will continue to do my 5 and 6 milers for somewhere around 20-25 miles a week. And I am hitting the trails! I am signing up for a 5-mile trail race on 12/8.

I have PR'd both my 5k and my 10k times since the beginning of October.  I call that a successful 2012 race season.

Friday Food:

Breakfast:  Two poached eggs and an english muffin

Snacks:  carrots, peach

Lunch:  Waffle with PB

Dinner:  Chicken and Dumplings and Corn Casserole

Dinner was a HUGE success. It was SO good.  I linked to the recipes so you can try it yourself.

Monday is a holiday.  I a hitting the trail and then may go to a movie.
