I went to steps and for my run this morning. Like I said last night I was determined to make this one better. Well it was better but it was still really tough today. It was hot and we did a little more on stairs than we did on Monday so that really took my legs from me. But as we headed off to run I was still going to make it a better run. And it was....we got over 5 miles between the run and the steps. I did have to take walk breaks today one really really long one, but we ran further than before in the beginning.
The funny part happened when the run was over. My running buddy said this weekend we could do 10 miles. At the time that was not hard to believe. I was all gung ho, but after I got home I got to thinking about it. Oh my goodness, that is soooo far. But when I look at the ultimate goal 26.2 miles it is really just a fraction of the distance. So I guess on Saturday I will be headed out for 10 miles. Holy Crap!!!!
When I got home from my run I weighed...first I took off the 30lbs of clothes that were completely soaked in sweat and weighed. I ate my free day breakfast, which was delicious, but I also had a huge bottle of water, a Gatorade and a Diet Coke. I was floating and too full when I got done. I actually was almost sick. It was just too much food and drink in my belly. I laid down on the couch and tried to make my belly feel better.
So I got to work this morning after a little bit of a nap. When I left yesterday I told them I would be here "relatively" (which means 15 mins late) "close to" on time (that's 15 more.) Well I got here finally and have been working ever since.
I have one shameless plug today...after my chaffing incident last Saturday. I actually bought a product called Anti-Monkey Butt. It is a powder and it feels really great. It is smooth under my arms and I haven't had my pants eating my stomach since I started using it. I bought the Lady Anti-Monkey Butt. You should try it if you have the same problem.
I had to put the picture up because it is funny to look at. I cant believe I bought it but this is brilliant marketing!
