Slipping

Published November 27, 2012 by meee2

Just a little.

But to be honest, it’s been happening.

A lot has been going on lately, starting with not being able to do much activity for the 3 weeks after The Biggest Loser Resort due to those stupid blisters on my heel!! Yes!! It took them about 3 weeks to heal.

I’ve had some issues with one of my children. I’m usually pretty open and honest about things that happen in my life, both here and on my other blog, Really?, but it’s not really my story to tell. It’s his. It’s nothing horrible or too crazy. To put your mind at ease, know that he is okay.

And, of course, the HOLIDAYS!! Oh My Goodness.

I did Thanksgiving dinner at my house this year. We didn’t have any guests and one of my brats wasn’t at home either….

Soooo….I cooked enough food for at least 20 people. And there were only 4 of us.

We stuffed ourselves silly for about 4 days.

Yikes!!

I do want to say that I’m getting back on track.

I’m working on getting to Zumba 3 times a week. I also need to start training for another half marathon coming up in January. I am going to try to up my short runs from 30 minutes on Tuesday and Thursdays to 45 minutes each of those days. The long runs are on Saturday. I was supposed to do like 11.5 miles Saturday. Didn’t happen. I’ll have to kind of reconfigure my long run schedule to get them in and get myself worked back up to the 13.1 mile mark. It would be awesome to get in a 14.5 mile run about 2 weeks before the next half marathon. I’m sure that would make allll those miles much, much easier.

Speaking of half marathons, I did just complete my 1st half marathon!! It was November 10th at Disney World. It was amazing. It was challenging. It was loooonnnng. But most importantly, it was FUN! I’ll write more about that laters though. I want to dedicate an entire post to that, so you’ll have to wait. I will tell you that it took me 3 hours, 25 minutes, and 4 seconds to run. It only took Carly 3 hours, 25 minutes, and 3 seconds. Yep. She beat me again, lol. (I’m not really sure how though, we were side by side running across the starting line and holding hands, side by side across the finish line). And it’s all good that she beat me. We weren’t competing against each other. We just wanted to finish.
