But at least now I know. I went to the outdoor track and ran two laps (800 meters). Then I did 4.5 more miles, for a total of 20 laps around the track. When I think of 20 laps, it doesn't sound like much, but it was boring. I like the indoor track much better. But I really need to go back to running on the road, at least for most of my runs.
Tomorrow and Sunday are both rest days, but next week I'll probably be doing a couple of dreadmill runs because my kids are off of school all week for winter break. So I'll be interested to see how accurate the treadmill is compared to the newly-calibrated foot pod.
After I showered and dressed, I had to go to H&R Block to sign my tax papers. My aunt works there, so she does our taxes for us. We're getting a $4,400 tax return, which is about what I expected. I want to put it toward our debt, but we desperately need new carpeting, and I think we're going to do that. We've had the same carpet since we moved in in 2003, and we've had dogs, cats, two babies (now children) in that time. So you can only imagine all the years of baby spit-up, milk, food, dog pee, cat puke, and other stuff that is lurking in our carpet.
I like to pick something that is going to be the most difficult for me to give up. Can you guess what it will be this year? I'll give you a hint. It makes up approximately 95% of my diet.
Yep, peanut butter. Well, more specifically, NUTS. This isn't set in stone, so don't hold me to this, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to give up nuts for Lent this year. It will be the most difficult food to give up. Anyone else giving up something for Lent?
