This past weekend was a bust! I was sick all weekend starting Thursday, and Friday was supposed to be a great day off… I spent it mostly in bed! I’m still feeling some of the effects but I’ve mostly recovered. So, due to a couple set backs and thinking things through, I’ve decided not to run the Ashland Half Marathon and I’m ok with that because I have a plan forming in my brain! MUAH HAHAHA!! lol… I’m pretty excited for 2011! :D
Today started out great though because the very first thing, I got a call telling me that I wasn’t needed at work… Ok, so I guess that can be both good and bad, but the weather was gorgeous!! Sunny and about 65 degrees! I definitely had to get outside and go running!! Due to being sick, I hadn’t gone running since last Tuesday!
My brother decided that he would ride his bike along with me while I ran and he took some pictures of me before we headed out. Photo Op!! haha… I felt like a pro! ;) Take a look at some of my favorite pictures (and then go visit my brother’s photography page on facebook HERE):
Why yes, I did custom make some arm sleeves out of a pair of socks… thanks for noticing! haha, it was kind of chilly when we set off but i didn’t feel like wearing a long sleeve shirt… they worked pretty well and I ended up taking them off about a mile into my run. My brother put them in one of his kit pockets for me.
We ended up going 4.28 miles, well I ran that and my brother probably rode about double that because he would coast down hills and then come back to where I was and so on and so forth. When we got back I made myself stretch because being sick made my muscles tight and then I made one of my favoritest (yes, that word is in my vocabulary) protein shakes and hopped in the shower.
Since then, I’ve been blogging (and working on the layout of mine), relaxing, crocheting, and spending time with my family… Today is what my Friday was supposed to be like! God knew that I needed today so badly! It was a fabulous break from the busyness and stress of my normal weeks!
Do you ever make believe to be something you’re not, just for fun? (seriously… adults can have fun too!)
