Today puts a whole new meaning to a busy day...but I am home now, sweat pants on, and finally in front of the computer. Today was full of work, workouts, and wet wet weather.
I started the day with a nice simple run, just 5 miles around town followed by a cup of joe at the local coffee shop. No fuss, no speed, just a jog. It was a good run and it was over before the rain. All I had to deal with was the wind, it didn't matter what direction we ran the wind was blowing right in our faces. Wednesday will be my last long run before the marathon. That will give me a week and a half before the marathon to taper off the running and get completely well before the big dance. I am so excited for this long run but more excited for next weekend. I am ready for the pressure and suspense to be over. I don't want to stop the running just want the jitters and nervousness and anticipation to be over. I am already planning the next run after this one, another half and a new time goal.
After the run I headed to work. Actually, I headed home to get ready for work, then headed to town and realized that I forgot something so I headed back home, then back to town yet again, oh, and I forgot something else and repeated this again. Finally, I got to work (job #1) and got everything handled there. There was quite a bit to do since I haven't seen my office since Wednesday. I did get caught up there and get to job #2 on time. Tonight was one of the few nights that I get to go to Zumba and I enjoyed it very much. I forget how much fun that class is until I get to go. I got a second good workout but had to leave a little bit early to go get some dinner. Subway and french fries. I know its a weird combination but it was really good.
Finally off work, this day had Monday written all over it, I actually got a 3rd workout in. My workout buddy couldn't come tonight but since I have skipped it so much recently I really wanted to get back into the habit. I did about 20 minutes of the Plyo Cardio Circuit Insanity workout.
Needless to say I was ready to get out of my sweaty gym clothes and into my lounge around the house holy sweatpants. I am trying my best to relax and get ready for bed.
I think I have finally recovered and caught up from the Black Friday extravaganza. The whole weekend was crazy busy with a few hours of sleep between the next thing. Last night I got a full nights sleep. I have a fantastic new heated blanket so not only was I guaranteed a good nights sleep due to exhaustion but I was warm, that was a good nights sleep.
Tomorrow will be another crazy day but less working out getting ready for the run on Wednesday. I just hope I can sleep with all the weather outside my window. Check back tomorrow!
