Yesterday I had to actually run three miles. Eeek! The temp plummeted to only 90 degrees, as it appeared we were about to get some rain (we did not). The first mile went pretty smoothly. Then I walked the quickest one minute of my life. Back to running! The second mile went smoother than I anticipated. After another lightning-fast minute I was back at it to finish up the third mile. It seemed to take forever, and I sooooo wanted to walk. But I didn't let myself. I couldn't let down Team Point Two! I just kept focusing on the fact that today is a rest day. Hooray!
I have been reading to Isaac. What have I been reading to him, you ask? Runner's World, Women's Running and the Memphis Runners Track Club newsletter ("The Roadrunner"). He is captivated, I tell you! He just hangs on every word; I love it!
In other news, this is my 29th day with water as my only liquid. Yep - no more Diet Coke, Coke Zero, etc. Just water. OK, I've had one glass of wine and one martini... but those were special occasions. My point in doing this is to stay as hydrated as possible. I noticed shortly after Isaac was born that I was drinking a lot of the aforementioned soft drinks and less water than ever. This is a good way to attempt to get enough water, plus I am sure my body will thank me for it. Additionally, I no longer crave sweets! And FYI, I have never been a coffee drinker. Bring on the hydration!
Tomorrow I have to do another 3-mile run. Please send me some good vibes!
