Seems when I add one thing I lose sight of another. This time it is eating right / eating enough. These days I have been loving me a glass wine. Sometimes two. They add up. Sure we can not cut out everything BUT there is a balance.
Another red light goes off when I begin running on fumes and the recovery is just not happening as I know it should. This was more than clear to me this weekend. The recovery just never happened. I am on fumes. This will change....NOW.
I missed a call last night from my oldest son and an opportunity to smack talk him about the upcoming Half Marathon we are doing together.
His message to me in my voice mail went something like " hi mom. I am sure you are out swimming to Texas and back or maybe you are cycling to China but I just called to tell you I love you." Before you start feeling all sweet he made a jab or two about my need to start running since I will be so slloowwww.
Our Team moved our ride indoors on Saturday since it was raining. Sunday we met with about 30 other riders for the last of the Winter Bike League rides. I was wasted. Explains my post. Will leave out the details but I did get in just under 40 miles with Scott at a decent pace.
Last week I ran my scheduled 10 miles. This week I am on for 12 miles. Moving right along according to plan. Runs were amazing.
Now I am off to recharge my batteries for the week ahead.
