I Did IT!!!

Today was the "easy run" day. Easy is certainly putting it mildly. I ran for 20mins! Started at 5mph for a mile, then 4.8 for 4mins, and 4.5 for 4mins. Looking back I want to say I could've run much more, but at the time I was BEAT! The longest I've run previously was 12mins at 5mph.

Unfortunately I think that started me on the road to a head ache. I then went to the football game with my family. It was so sunny, with a light breeze. Again it was SUNNY I'm getting a lot farther down that road.

Then I went to the mall. I bought 2 new pairs of jeans in a size smaller! I'm back to my "regular" size that I was from 6th grade to my junior year of college. I'm super excited and can't wait until I'm out of this size too. At the mall I didn't drink any water, whoops.

When I got out to my car I noticed it was leaking. This wasn't the first time so I figured I'd carefully drive it over to the shop. As I'm driving I started thinking about that price tag. YUCK. I've been wanting a new bike and started thinking "Why spend the money on a car which will have another problem in 3 months when I can spend the money on a wicked sweet bike?" I'll talk to my aunt and uncle about that decision. A bike would be great now but what about in winter? Time to think!

Well once I got home I was a bit exhausted from the car issues the the mounting headache. I took some tylenol and laid down.....for 3 hrs. Just like yesterday! I'm always surprised how easy it is to mess up my sleep schedule and how how hard it is to get it back. Now my goal for the holiday is to NOT sleep/nap!

Tomorrow is my cousin birthday! Which means a dinner out so I'll have to head to the gym so I can get some wiggle room. And maybe some bike shopping!

  1. Way to go on the new, smaller size jeans!! I hope the car repair won't be too much of a hardship.
