You've had those weeks, right? It's really a big blur and I'm struggling to get back to normal here. We went to Catching Fire on Wednesday, LOVED IT naturally! Thanksgiving was very very busy with petsitting, I tried to take on too much and got stressed. Friday Savannah got sick and I followed soon after. It was a functional cold/sick at least, so I could luckily still work!
Yesterday was Rey's birthday! We didn't get to do a lot with my work schedule, but we had time in between my petsits to watch some movies, which Rey loves to do, so that was nice. This man seriously is a gem, I can't even begin to put into words how lucky I am to have him. He just seems to get better with age. He's my biggest fan and my best friend.
I got all three of my training runs in for the week, although my longest run scheduled was 4 miles because I knew I would be busy. I'm feeling a little nervous as the days tick down and the miles go up! I have a seven mile run at the end of this week, it's been a while since I've run 7, but I'm not terribly nervous about it since I've done it before. Come back when I go for 8 or 9 in the coming weeks and that may be a different story!
When I ran Saturday morning, I realized how much I depend on running to keep me centered and stress-free now. I was so tired and stressed, but as soon as I got out there, it all melted away. So...crazy busy week, but sometimes busy isn't so awful. Unfortunately, Rey has to head back out, and he won't be back until Christmas. Luckily he'll be home for a bit over Christmas/New Years because I feel like I barely saw him this weekend!
I put up our tree as well during this craziness! I'll have to take pics for WAW. I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend. I know some of my runner friends had races, I'm enjoying the recaps already! Congrats to my twinkie, April, for a PR on her half! (although in this aspect, not so much twinkies! Those negative splits look speedy!)
How did your holiday weekend go?? Did you race? Do you put up your tree? Shop? Travel?
