A quick post to say--I got in a long run today. It wasn't 10, but 8 was close enough. I didn't start running until 11 a.m., and although the temp was low enough (80, I think) the sun was beating down on me by 12:30 and I just couldn't do it anymore.
I even cried when I hit 8 miles. It was one of those "I'm so physically spent I just need to cry" cries. Ever had one of those? Last time it happened to me was in a pilates class, ages and ages ago. I stopped Garmin at 8 miles and walked the rest of the way home just to get myself together.
My carb up day yesterday was awesome. I didn't feel tired & icky like I did the first time, because I had protein with my junky carbs. And I didn't have cravings today (at least, not until the family had ice cream tonight and I got nada. So I had an Atkins chocolate bar instead. Not great, but better than a pint of Cherry Garcia).
Getting my stuff ready for the 5K tomorrow. It should be fun. They are expecting 17,000 people. Luckily I can park at my gym and walk across the street to the mall. Easy in, easy out.
We got the kids pictures done tonight. They are awesome! Here are a few....
