My legs feel like they are going to snap in half at the knee right now. I'm lying on the floor, and I just finished playing solitare (with real cards, not the computer). Chandler decided that he would settle all 23-pounds of cat right under my butt, on top of my legs. I managed to get my camera from the table and take a picture while holding the camera over my head...
I actually started counting my laps, thinking that the foot pod was all wrong and I had actually run 5 miles when my Garmin said 2 miles--but after counting laps, I realized that the foot pod was right on target and my run was just going by really slowly.
Alicia came up to the track with a friend when I had 1.25 miles left. They were just ahead of me, so I just kept pace with them for the rest of my run. I really hope that taking the weekend off of running helps me to be excited for Monday's 16-miler. Our 15-mile run was so good that I felt like I loved running!
Jess and I decided we're going to La Pita (like usual) after our run Monday, but we're going to skip the side of garlic sauce that we always order with the pita bread while we wait for our food to come out, and we're going to ask for our bread to come WITH our meal rather than before. That way we won't load up on pitas and garlic sauce and then eat a huge meal.
I ate really well yesterday and today (tons of veggies and fruit). Today I've been craving Easter candy. I went to K Mart with Jerry so he could buy a new lunch cooler, and they had these HUGE Reese's peanut butter eggs. I really wanted one, but resisted. Then I saw these Reese's Pieces eggs, and those looked really good too. But I keep reminding myself that I have GOT to get my weight back down before this extra 5 pounds turns into 20 and then 50 and then 100.
We got a storm this afternoon and our power has been on and off all afternoon. I better post this while it's back on!
By the way, thanks so much for all of your votes on the Fitness magazine blog award! I can't believe how quickly I've caught up to a lot of the other bloggers. I'm sure it's just a promotional tool for the Fitness website, but it's still fun to be in the running :)
