The Weekend Can’t Come Soon Enough!

Published August 9, 2012 by meee2

Now, if you know me, you know I hardly ever say this.

Why? Because I’m a stay at home mom and all of my brats go to school. Having the weekdays all to myself is pure bliss.

Not this weekend! I have a friend coming in from out of town. She’s one of my very best friends, pretty much a sister from another mister. We definitely do not get to see each other often enough.

She also happens to be the one who got me started with running. This weekend we have a couple of 5K’s we’re running together.

The 1st is the The Color Run. It looks absolutely AMAZING!! The 2nd is the Mega 5K. Both runs will be held at Pike’s Peak International Raceway. How cool is that?? Double bonus, right?

I haven’t hit my daily goal of 3 hours of activity. Yet. I’m a work in progress. Monday and Tuesday I logged just over 2 hours. Today I only got in 1 hour (I forgot to set my alarm to get up at 6 for a walk). Tomorrow is my run day, so I should be able to get in an hour or so in the morning, then maybe get back out for a walk in the evening, depending on how I feel. I’m trying to build myself up a bit, so I don’t end up injuring myself.

I do have a 3 month diabetes check-up scheduled for Friday. I went in this past Friday to have my labs drawn. They better be fucking stellar after all this exercise!!
