Good morning! I hope you all had a lovely evening. I talked to my mommy on the phone for a while before heading to bed. She is very excited for my race on Sunday. I wish she were closer so that she could come and be part of the cheering squad. I will just have to take lots of pictures so she can get a thorough recap.
Today I did my last long run until after Sunday. My plan is to go easy with my runs for the next few days. I did an hour today which was about 7.3 miles. Unfortunately I had to run on the treadmill today because it was way too icy to be hitting the pavement. All the rain we got yesterday froze over night. I want run outside at least one time with my new sneakers before race day. They seem to be fine on the treadmill but on the pavement they may feel different.
Instead of shredding this morning I used the free weights at the gym. As much as I am loving the Shred workouts, I just can’t stay out of the weight room forever.
Since I am out of oat bran & have been eating oatmeal all week, I decided to make a bowl of Whole Grain Cream of Wheat today. I cooked it with water, then added a banana and topped it with a Blue Berry Yo Baby. This bowl contained all the right flavors and textures to start my day off on the right foot.
Yesterday when I was on the phone with my sis, she all of a sudden said “where did you get scissors? Nice hack job”. Apparently Rocco decided to give himself a haircut and chopped off his bangs. I can’t wait to see what he did. Of course I will not laugh at him, but I bet it will be a hoot. D is already pumped to have his best buddy to play with today. I am pumped to be able to spend time with my best girl.
Have a great day.
