1. I’m having a tough time getting back into running after the Seattle Rock n Roll half marathon a couple weeks ago. The first couple runs afterwards I quit early because of a side stitch. Last night I managed a full five miler, but it was ridiculously slow. I think I’ll blame it on the heat…except it didn’t really feel that hot to me last night. I’m planning another five miler tonight, but this one will be a tempo run so it will be a real test – no quitting early this time!
2. I looked up my pictures from the half marathon this week and they are GOD AWFUL. How do some people manage to look so cute in their race pictures? I look like I’m about to keel over and die. Seriously, give me some tips on how to look cute while running.
3. I don’t know how much running I’ll be able to get in this weekend. I am babysitting my two adorable nephews (ages 3 and 5) all day tomorrow and Saturday. I’m hoping just chasing after them will be enough of a workout. I am really looking forward to it even if Matthew is going through a phase where he refuses to wear pants…or eat.
