OH MAMA MIA!!
Well I just had to post this because I am so happy right now! :) Today, I broke record of how long I ran...13.5 miles! :) Yes! Then afterwards, I did a 40 minute Yoga DVD. YOU BETTER BELIEVE I SMELT LIKE DEATH! Seriously, I was nasty! Anyway, Keven's cousin Dustin came up from San Diego to spend time with us for a couple days. We went running 3 miles yesterday on the boardwalk at the beach. Dustin averages about 6 miles every time he runs and I usually do 5 miles. So we decided that today we would run to the beach from our house. Keven isn't a long distance runner, but he is faster then heck for sprinting! So Keven road the bike down while Dustin and I ran. I was carrying a camopack on my back so that totally slowed me down and was a little of a challenge but it was still really good. It takes 6 miles to get to the beach from our house and I was pumped because I only stopped to walk for 2 minutes the whole time!! I was totally slow, but I wasn't complaining because I DID IT! So then we laid out at the beach (BEAUTIFUL DAY TODAY!) for a couple hours. The water was freezing, so we just put our feet in. Then a couple hours later...we ran back home!! I totally had my second wind and felt like I could run forever! Coming back was about 7.5 miles and I was averaging 10 minute miles. It was awesome! Then when we got home I felt I could run like 3 more miles, which is totally not like me. We went to the hot tub to loosen up our muscles and that was perfect! Then we came back and I felt like doing this Yoga DVD that I have so I did that. The guys thought I was crazy, but I guess you just have to take advantage of the days you want to exercise right? I just got done cooking some bomb vegetable soup and now my next step...ICE CREAM! :) I can never deny my love for ice cream! Oh and symphany bars! :) We'll see how I am feeling tomorrow! That's all for now...thanks for chiming in! :)
