One good thing about a 10 mile run-- it makes the short runs a piece of cake.
I finally felt back to 100% yesterday. & boy has spring arrived. It was gorgeous, & it is again today. I had just enough time to run 3 miles before I had to pick up kids for Sophie's swim class.
The run was over so quickly, it was startling. 33 minutes isn't much of a run anymore.
A few years ago I would never have dreamed of uttering those words.
8 days & counting to the half marathon on May 2. My confirmation booklet arrived in the mail yesterday. I'm not nervous at all--yet. I'm sure that will kick in the night before. At least I know what to expect since this is my 2nd running of Indy.
This year, I'm in a decent corral (because I was seeded with my Evansville Half finishing time of 2:15:42) instead of 30 minutes from the starting line like last year. Corral G, here I come!
In case you didn't already know this, the Indianapolis Half Marathon is the largest in the U.S. 35,000 people register. Last year, I think there were just under 31,000 that started the race. I was in corral U last year & it took 30 minutes of walking before I even got to begin the race. The bright side of this was that I got to pee right before I started the race, which is a big deal for me. Seriously, my bladder must be abnormally small. :)
I have to say, I am so thankful that Sophie is feeling well. She's a different kid when she's not sick, and I'm in a completely different place--mentally & physically--when my daughter is healthy.
It's been well over a month since her last spell. May has been a bad month the past two years for her dizziness, & it would not surprise me if she wakes up dizzy one morning very soon. As it is, I'm thankful & praise God every morning she gets up & ready for school without complaint. I don't know what the difference is--is it the migraine medicine? or the air purifier I put in her room a couple weeks ago? (we all have them now, & also the family room.) or the ADHD medicine? Those are the only changes we've made that could be significant. Whatever it is, I'm thankful. & relieved.
Now if life just won't throw me any curve balls, I can hopefully maintain the Puke Diet weight loss. I've been 152.0 the past two days. I'll take it.
