|From my Dad's earlier 2nd attempt this month that was derailed by weather. |
The lead guide was a photographer, and got this amazing shot.
All week long, I'd been on the edge of a funk. I noticed I was stress eating for the first time since Avery was born. Some examples: I sat down on the couch after Avery went to bed with a giant bag of gummy bears and a book. I also took down an entire box of Cadbury ice cream bars within a couple days by myself. (and wow were they yummy!)

I've composed many blog posts in my head in the past week, and every time I actually thought about getting onto the computer, my inner lazy came out instead.
|You can stay lazy mommy, I've got the dishes.|
I've already taken an unplanned rest day this week as well, because my left quad started misfiring after my Tuesday morning run. I'm blaming pushing too hard in Monday's strength training session until proven otherwise. I've never had a quad injury before and it was making me really nervous. It would misfire every time I tried to go down the stairs. I honestly don't know how to describe it. That is a similar motion to the isolated lunges I did Monday night, so I think I'll avoid them until it's completely healed.
Is it coincidence that last week was the first week where I really felt like I was training for a marathon? In my large Saturday morning group, half of the people are training for half marathons and the other half for a full marathon. This past week was the first week where our mileage for the day was significantly different.
Anyway, I'll stop rambling. Just thought acknowledging being in a funk and being lazy would help me get out of it! I am composing a purposeful running story and a review of Salt Stick capsules, so I'm not a complete waste of internet space. ;)
