I slept horribly last night. The bedroom Jerry and I are staying in at the rental house is right next to the family room, and everyone else stayed up MUCH later than me. Nathan and Shawn (my brother-in-law) were up until 6:30! They were being pretty loud, so I didn't get much sleep at all.
This morning, I went for a run as soon as I got up. Everyone else was still sleeping (except for my parents), so I headed out for the same route as yesterday--three miles. Today, I deliberately tried to run fast. It was really nice outside, and perfect for running!
She's been doing really well with Couch to 5K training. She's been doing all of her training on the treadmill, and she said she was nervous about going outside to run. I knew she would enjoy it, so I was glad that she wanted to give it a chance. The plan was to run 3/4 mile, then walk 1/4 mile, and repeat one time. Jeanie had been doing her running segments on the treadmill at a 4.5 mph speed (a little slower than a 13:00/mi pace); so I told her that she could set the pace, and I'd just run along for company.
She really liked running outside, and was surprised how quickly the time went by. She went faster than she thought she was, too. These are the run/walk splits:
This afternoon, my sister asked me if I had a bathing suit to wear in Key West. Um, no. The last bathing suit I bought was a size 12/14. I hate to swim, so I never have a need for a bathing suit. But I started thinking about how I should probably get one for Key West, just in case.
I'm super self-conscious of my thighs and my stretch marks. My thighs have very saggy skin, and my belly still has stretch marks. So I wanted a bathing suit to cover those things, and it's hard to find a cute one that does the job! Jerry and I decided to go to JCPenny, so I could see if they had any suits. Being December, I wasn't hopeful.
It turns out they had just ONE left. And what's kind of funny is that I thought it was pretty cute! I tried it on, and it worked well enough. I'm still self-conscious of my thighs, but if I get really desperate, I think I can pull it off. I will not embarrass myself by posting a picture of me wearing it, but here is what it looks like:
We leave for Florida two weeks from tomorrow!! I cannot believe it's coming up so fast. I'm super excited!
