Back to normal. That’s where I’m at today. My workout room was miraculously cleaned out so I could move some things around in order to get my workout in. So today I can get two workouts in, one of which will be with my son after work. I love the two-fer days because I feel like a super athlete.
I love running with James because he is a beautiful runner with his long strong legs and he looks like a graceful gazelle running in slow motion while my legs are a blur trying to keep up with his huge stride. The thing I love most about running with him is slowing down. I mentioned earlier in another post that thanks to James I have found a new slower pace that allows me to enjoy my run like never before. At this pace I would consider a full marathon and in fact if I keep it up I may just register for one this fall. Why not? I’m crazy enough to get it done.
So life is back to my happy place and I continue on to working out and running religiously to be the best me I can be. On a side note I finally had an actual rest day for the first time in 24 days and it was quite appreciated by every inch of my body. It set me up for a good week of workouts so there is no doubt (never was) that rest days are crucial.
Last week I did something that I didn’t think I should. I joined an online fitness clothing company. I wasn’t going to but I can’t help myself. If I’m going to stuff my ass into tight pants and parade it around town I want it to be pretty! It’s all good as long as I don’t forget to pass on the monthly outfit by the 4th of the month. It allows me to get great pricing and only take outfits when I want them. I’m reaching a selfish stage where I feel like I deserve stuff too and well I’m doing some of those things for myself! Bravery comes in waves I guess. I’ll have to let you know how I like it.
As my mom likes to say “That’s all that’s fit to print and fresh fish too!”
