This post is going to be like a book! I will try and keep it simple! First, the good news is I ran my 9 miles! I went out Sunday morning for a 5 mile run because I needed to be at the Bridal Extravaganza at 1:00! Well, I headed out feeling really well! I hit mile 5 and still wanted to run so I ran back by the house (mile 6) to drop off a light jacket, use the bathroom, and get a quick drink! Then headed out for the last 3 miles! I hit a mental block at mile 7! It was rough, but I did it! My goal (after I decided to keep running) was to have 9 miles under 9 minutes each. I kept that goal until 7.6 and I dropped back to 9:11 pace! I am OK with that!!! I think...
I will just say overwhelming! They hold this event every year and it is where a lot of vendors come and set up booths and give you ideas, help you, and all that fun stuff! There a lot of cake people there and were handing out cake samples... Way cute cakes, but the cake itself was not too bueno! There was this cake and it was a box with cigars in it...I thought it was REAL and was going to grab one! WOOPS! It was a cake!! Thats how REAL looking it was!!! Since I already have my cake lady It didn't really matter! They also had a lot of floral booths there. Awesome flowers and great ideas, but this one booth quoted me $3000! UMMM, I don't think so! I think that is just outrageous, but then again I am not a millionaire! So, I am sticking to my flower people I already planned to use! They were giving away a free honeymoon!!!!! Yea, well I was like 1 bride out of 10 zillion there, so of course I didn't win! I'm not that lukcy!! I did get a lot of ideas of how I can arrange things on tables and I got to meet with an invitation lady, hopefully, those will be in place as of Feb. 2nd!
Ok, blah blah blah! enough about wedding!
Last night (Saturday) John and I went to Hobby Lobby (love that store) and bought my stuff for me to be creative! We bought a table last weekend at Lowes (I have been eying for a while) and it came with 2 lamps! WHAT A GREAT DEAL! John put it together and it looked kinda blah... or the lamps did so I foo foo'd them up!
Lamp Shade before... blah!
Lamp Shade After!!! FOO FOO!
My cute Lowes Special table and cute Boss!
When you run long miles, do you ever hit a mental wall or a running wall?
-I do, but not all the time! Here lately, I have been! How do I fix it?
Do you do recovery runs?
-Sometimes. I thought about doing 4 miles tomorrow at a slower pace. Are you supposed to?
How often to you ice?
-My knees never hurt while running today, but after walking around for 4 hours afterwards I noticed my knees were achy?
Hope everyone has a great Monday!
Tomorrow is an off day so Body Pump and maybe some cardio! :o)
