Super Saturday! It’s beautiful but hot here. Poor Bobby is still having awful back pain and spasms. he goes to move and it locks up/catches. Anyone ever had this happen? been like this since Wednesday…poor thing.
So, last night was a girls night ice cream party at my house for the ladies in my Sunday school class at church. We had a great time and I am so glad they all came!
Lots of ice cream was consumed
my bowl. yum. oh.
Them due to fabulous planning on my part, I got less than six hours of sleep before I was up at 5:00 this morning for my Team in Training run along the beach! It was my first group run with the team, and as much as I hate waking up early, it was nice to run in only mildly miserable conditions. We ran along the beach and across the Ocean Springs bridge which if you will remember from THIS post, is basically a giant hill I got to go over twice. Unlike last time though, there was no nice cool breeze. I think I sweated out a few pounds!
One of our coaches ran with me and we talked about getting me a training plan, and about my goals or running injury free, etc. It made the 5 miles go by really fast! I was really happy with my time, too. We ran the whole way except when we stopped to get water, and considering the ginormous bridge we doubled back over, we kept a really good pace. I have only had one run further than this one since the Mardi Gras half in February, so I wasn’t sure how my body would react. It did great!
Here is me and Nicole after the run, this was her first time every going four miles. Go Nicole! Nicole was at my house last night too, but she was good and didn’t eat any ice cream. Maybe she needs to rub off on me a little bit. I think I ate enough ice cream for the both of us.
I got home at 8:30 and Bobby, poor thing, was still in a loratab-induced coma. He woke up and ate breakfast and chatted with me….Then I took a 1.5 hour nap. Then we went to eat Mexican…and now HE is taking a nap! How lazy are we?
I wanted to leave you with these beautiful pictures I took from our upstairs balcony on Thursday night as the sun was setting. So pretty!
Stunning! God painted us a really pretty sunset!
QOTD: Do you prefer running or working out in the morning or evening?
