I am so happy to share that I had another successful long run! I think I am back on track with my spring marathon training. YAY! Yesterday I took it really, really slow, listened to my body (this can be hard for me to do), walked a bit or stopped to stretch if I felt any twinges that threatened to get worse, remembered to stop twice for water (I don't remember to hydrate as well in the cold) & made it 15 miles! If you check out my log on the sidebar you'll see i didn't break any land speed records but im ok with that....I'm just happy i was able to do it. I got in an easy 5k this morning before having to spring Thing 2 for an orthodontist appointment & my legs felt a bit tired but no shin or hip issues.
A big shout-out to Thing 2 who won his heat & had a 7 second PR in the 100M Freestyle at his swim meet last evening! I would post the video, but he would be mortified. Rest assured, he was awesome & I cheered like the crazy person I am ;)
And back to the title of this post.... I HATE sitting in offices after my appointment time waiting....and waiting...especially at the orthodontist when they KNOW the kid has to get back to school! Really, he could have spent that 25 minutes in a class & I could have gotten in another mile! I may look patient but this is how I feel:
