What is wrong with me??

wait, don’t answer that…

I don’t think I really want to know.  But one thing I DO know is that I’ve completed 4 weeks of my 15 week half marathon training…. 4 weeks without missing one single run, on Sunday I had a fabulous run of 7 miles, my farthest yet.

This morning I had a 2.5 mile run on the training plan, it’s a taper week and 2.5 miles has now become easy peasy.  The alarm goes off at 5:30 and it’s time to run.  But wait. What’s that I hear??   WIND!!  Not just easy breezy wind but WIND, Gale force winds!!  Nope, no thank you… I’m not going out in that.  So I lay down for an extra 30 min of sleep and when I get up at 6:00 NO WIND!!  WTF??   No wind??  Well now it’s too late to run…so I leave for work.  And the thought of missing my 2.5 mile run has not left my mind once… it is eating me up!  Really?  Must I obsess about EVERYTHING??

Instead of saying “well, you’ve done a great job so far, you’ll be fine without this short run”  I obsess about missing it…

Now, I’ve made up my mind that I am going to do it tomorrow provided there are no winds, which normally wouldn’t be a big deal except that I have a 5k on Thursday which means 2 days in a row of running…  lord I hope my shins can take it!

Now,  for my Biggest Loser snack of the week…

a cup of mud!!!

Just kidding,  it’s a delicious chocolate banana smoothie.

1 c Hemp milk

2 small frozen bananas

1 handful of spinach

1T Hersheys Dark cocoa powder

Mmmmm Mmmmm Good!!

Tomorrow the little lump o’ love and I will be baking some cookies and making a side dish that includes corn and wild rice for Turkey day.  It’s going to be a fun day of cooking and spending time with her and I am SO looking forward to 5 days off!!

Have a wonderful evening!!
