I got the green light to start running again. I am not sure if I mentioned this or not, but I LOVE my Chiropractor (aka the Miracle Worker). She fixed me up real nice and the injuries are healing beautifully. I am going to start back up the correct way this time and not sign up for a marathon when I can only run a mile. In fact, I am focusing on walking at the moment and building a base from there. Imagine that...starting from the ground up!!!
Staci and I walked at lunch today. That girl is relentless! I think I normally run slower than we walked today. She is a speed demon even as a walker. Ugh...I may get into shape yet if I stick with her. I had to jog at times just to keep up . Someone bounced back to her normal self quicker than I expected. Maybe it is time that I kick her in the knee to knock her down to my level. *evil grin*
The distance and pace per mile is up for debate. We started our respective running gadgets at the same time and we got very different results. Her read out on the Nike+ was 2.5(ish)miles and around a 14/minute mile pace. Mine said 2.21 miles with an average pace of 16.18 MPH. I calibrated mine on a track while running. I don't know if is a difference because I walked. It seemed accurate for yesterday's power walk around the hood. I actually pulled out the instructions but I couldn't find an answer to my issue. Oh well, I liked Staci's number's better anyway.
My kiddos are back. I can't believe how much I missed them....especially for as crazy as they make me. I am happy that everyone is home. My parents spoiled them rotten and now I have to whip them back into shape. Scrubbing walls seems like a great welcome home project. I enjoyed my break, but I was WAY busier than I thought. I did do my date nights with the my man but no much else.
I am tired and going to hit they hay. I just did a graze through the kitchen and starting stuffing my face when I realized that I am not even hungry....just exhausted.
