Well today started off with a bang...and I would be lying if I said I didn't get overwhelmed. I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Everyone I saw and had to deal with was just getting on my nerves, and the phone would not stop going off...I was just irritable. Then I had to take a step back and realize that it probably wasn't everyone else that was the problem, it was probably me! I analyzed the day, I skipped breakfast because I was in a hurry and forgot to grab something, I didn't feel to well, ear infections, and I was just blah. So I had to get my head on straight and the rest of the day was much better.
I got to go to Zumba this afternoon which makes everything better and got an antibiotic for my sickness and just having it in my bag made me feel better, I doubt it has started to work yet. On that note: This is the first antibiotic I have had to take in almost 2 years and I do not like taking them unless completely necessary and I think I have gotten to that point.
I did cheat a little bit on the Special K plan, but not horribly bad. Like I said I ran out of the house without any breakfast and I did not want to use my big meal today for breakfast because I already had it planned out for dinner tonight (Ill get to that in a second) so I got an order of tater tots at a fast food restaurant. I followed the rest of the day right, even though I had to drive back home and get it. :) I probably drove 80 miles today on the same 7 mile stretch of road back and forth back and forth.
Ok, now on to the planned dinner. Tomorrow is my long run, the first really long run in about a week in a half so I am really looking forward to it, but I wanted to make sure I got a big carby dinner tonight to be fueled for my run, and I love Spaghetti. So I got home from work just in time to cook some whole wheat spaghetti and marinara sauce and get to the couch for Biggest Loser. And it was GOOD!
Tomorrow's long run is longer than ever, yet again, and I really am looking forward to it. It also scares me to death. This will be the longest for me in forever, basically from here on out they will all be longer than anything I have ever run. The goal tomorrow is 16 miles, and I hope it doesn't take 6 hours to do it. I AM READY, I AM READY, I AM READY. I just have to keep repeating that to myself.
I was told today that I shouldn't workout or exert much energy so I can be full of stamina tomorrow, well I didn't follow the rules completely, but I did cut back tonight. I did 30 minutes of Zumba, was going to be 45 but I had an appointment to get to and then I swam just a little bit tonight and didn't even give it a good effort. I spent a lot more time in the hot tub than in the pool, then I swam with my swimming buddy. So it was restricted energy...
Wish me luck on my run tomorrow, say a little prayer while your wishing me luck. I will let you all know how it goes tomorrow and also give an update on Weigh In Wednesday....there are so many reasons to check back tomorrow.
