I made it out for a run yesterday, and felt so much better during and afterwards. When will it sink in that if I feel bad, I just need to go running?
I did manage to get new running shoes Saturday, (Brooks Addiction 7)and they felt great on their first time out. I had been wearing motion control shoes, in size 8 1/2 extra wide. My new shoes are 8 1/2 but are a regular width. Even though they are motion control still, they are much lighter than my old shoes. I swear I was running faster with the new shoes on. I ran 3.1 miles is 33:30, which is around 10:50 minute miles, so I guess I was a little faster. Sweet.
Today is going to be unbelievably busy.
10 a.m. - Haircut. I'm thinking of getting it cut short. I was all about skinny girl long hair, but am kind of getting sick of the length already and it's not even to my shoulders. I was inspired by Jess's cut and am going to ask my stylist how short she thinks I can go. There's nothing wrong with completely changing your hairstyle right before a major holiday and family gathering, right?! (can you tell I've lost my mind?)
11:00 a.m. - Run home and change shirt after haircut; and get camera for...
12:30 p.m. - Sophie's Thanksgiving Day Feast & Play. She's an Indian, er, Native American Girl, and DH & I are going to watch her 5 minute play. I'm also going 15 minutes early to help set up the food for their feast.
3:00 p.m. - Oil changed, tires rotated, and run. Gotta get the VUE in shape for the trip to Indy. The plan here is to leave the car, and go run for an hour. It's in a part of town I haven't run in before, so I'm going to map a route and hopefully enjoy some different scenery (which will be mostly traffic and businesses, but oh well).
5:30 p.m. - Sophie hair cut. She needs one badly, but doesn't want her hair cut at all. This is going to be fun.
6:30 p.m. - Grocery shop for Turkey Day. We have to bring salad for 16. I'm going to do a take on Panera Bread's winter salad, with pears, dried cherries, blue cheese, candied pecans, and a sweet balsamic. I love fruity salads; I hate raw onions and raw tomatoes, so when I get to do the salad, it's all fruit and nuts and cheese. The greens will be a spinach/lettuce mix
8:30 p.m. - After the kids are in bed, I will get as much packed as possible. Last night I did the kids' laundry and put the clothes we are taking with us on the dining room table. So I'm close to getting them done. I hope to get as much done tonight as possible so we can leave at a decent time tomorrow afternoon.
?? p.m. - Pass out from exhaustion.
Hope your day is as fun-filled as mine!
P.S. Thanks to you all for your words of encouragement yesterday. You all really did help boost me up. Thank you.
