Well, 5:45 am came and went! I was actually up at 3:45 am. Miles needed me to watch him go to the bathroom and listen to him pass some
air biscuits gas. Naturally I could not fall asleep right away. My alarm went off and I shot out of bed. I turned the alarm off. I laid in bed for about 3 minutes. I grabbed my running clothes. I put them back down. I went back to bed. My biggest excuse is that when I woke up I had a headache. Oh well. I slept until about 7:30 when both kids were ready for the day. Amara’s recital was today. It was a lot of fun watching her up there on stage. I got so nervous before it was her turn! Just excited. I am not a fan of the makeup the little girls have to wear, although my neighbor/slash friend did a great job(I already let her know that when I want a smoky eye she is the Chosen One.)
My brother, his girlfriend, my dad and Matt’s parents all attended the shin dig with us. The whole program was about 2 hours long. After the show we headed to the Beltline Bar for lunch. I ordered the Loaded Nacho Salad: A bed of homemade tortilla chips, refried beans and freshmade guacamole topped with a mixture of lettuce, chicken asado, Jack & Colby cheese, diced tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro & Parmesan cheese. It was really tasty. I have the other half in the fridge waiting for me for tomorrow’s lunch!
After we got home and the guests left I settled in for an almost 2 hour nap! Nice! Even though I always wake up from a nap feeling pretty cruddy, I knew I needed the rest. The week has been a long one filled with my night owl ways. It caught up to me big time. After a few hours I contemplated going for a run. I had pretty much talked myself out of it until Matt decided he was going to go for one. FINE. I guess I will go too! 😉 Before I took off I foam rolled. My left side was giving me more issues than my right side today. Not sure what that is all about.
I figured I would go for at least 5 miles. I ran a whole 10k! I kept all miles under a 10 minute pace. I felt good. It was warm, but nothing horrible. I am glad that I waited until after it cooled off a bit before I headed out. It was a humid and hot day today.
I hope I can fall asleep ok. Between my 2 hour nap and working out this late I am not so sure! I plan on watching my friend participate in the Grand Rapids Triathlon tomorrow morning….early! I am not sure I will ever do a tri, but I surely commend those that do them. Multi sporting at it’s best!
On tap for Sunday: Off ( probably)
