I had 12 on the schedule for my long run last week, but we only ended up doing 11 because we had to get back to the kiddos. I’m ok with it though, because it was a great run. I don’t know why but when I taper I always get nervous about the race. I have thoughts such as, did I do enough training…how am I going to run 26.2 miles when 11 just felt pretty hard, etc. etc. etc. I’m sure I am not the only one that has these thoughts, I just hope I feel great on race day.
(8 min. mile average)
I’m actually getting excited about not having to worry about how many miles I need to hit each week. Just being able to run however far I want is going to feel great. I really want to focus on getting more toned this summer, (me and everyone else right;) So I’m ready to put some more thought into weights and resistance training. oh ya, and maybe diet, haha.
On a side note, I don’t really workout much more at home but I read about Gymbox the other day and thought it was interesting. It is kinda of like Netflix only instead of movies it’s workout videos and all different types. There is a giveaway for a 6 month subscription here. I get a lot of ideas from videos and the internet so I’m always looking for great ideas, and since we live in such a rural area, where not a lot of classes are offered, this would be an awesome substitute!
I love summer! I know a lot of moms that hate having their kids home, but I love the extra help. My older two are a big help with the twins, and plus I can put them to work!! I have everyone fooled thinking that I love kids but really I’m just training them to be my slaves, insert evil laugh. I’m just kidding I love my kids, but they will be hard workers! This little girl is my worst kids, she has some A-t-t-i-t-u-d-e! And I think it is all in her hair, lol:
I already have her Halloween costume planned out–Medusa:)
