does that happen to anyone else? so with the new year, I had sooo much ambition and sooo many plans! I knew I was probably setting myself up but decided to jump in, too deep!
I joined Heather and planned on doing my whole house with purging and organizing a major area each month, I did great starting my craft room, I am still doing ok with it, need to organize some more scrapbooking things and paint it and then I will be done. I am also starting Feb home project, so Iwill have to do 2 this month!
I had dreams of doing many sewalongs and quiltalongs, which I did start but of course still behind on a few but haven't been actually participating on flickr and such.
Then I told Zach, my son that I would do that 10K with him January 28, well in Dec, I ran 1 time, nice huh? January, I ran 3 times, how is that for training for a 10k? the week of Londons run, which was on a Saturday, well the Tues before, I thought (my first mistake!) that I should try to run 6 miles to make sure I could do it, not a smart thing, not to up your mileage from barely running! but I did okay, ran slow and just made sure I could run 6 miles, and almost peed my pants! seriously! well come Saturday, I was a nervous wreck but I promised Zach that I would do it and I did! I ran 6.28 miles, my goal was to do it in under an hour, I passed the finish line in 59.17 !!! that is a 9.32 mile pace, but oh well, could be faster but it could be slower and I am proud of myself for doing it. Zach was so sweet and ran with me at the end, he did GREAT, he placed 3rd in his age group and 13th overall out of 533 people! (I think I placed 181 out of 533)
no I do not normally tuck my nike ipod in my chest area but I was tying myshoe and stuck it there stuck it there really
quick and just forgot about it!)
Here comes the crashing part, I think I just over did it, running into town with my mom, babysitting, upping my mileage, lack of sleep and trying to do tooo many things, I got the worse head cold, the worst one I have ever had. Its gone now, thank God, it was a doozy and totally knocked me out of commission. God has a way of slowing us down huh? and helps us put things into perspective :)
All is good and I am back up and running in all areas of my life!
