I have so much to share with you all and it’s so scattered that I don’t know where to start. I think I’ll do bullet points and then do another post later on Nutrition. Welcome to my Monday! HA!
* Doc appointment on Friday went really well. Went through the usual treatment and then had an xray done to rule out arthritis, stress fracture and DJD. The good news is that I ran pain-free on Saturday and again today! I think that means I am heading in the right direction. If I had a hip stress fracture I would think that the pain would be getting worse, not better. To top it off I have had no pain post run this morning which is huge!
*I finally got to get back to my group run! I ran with Stacey and Sharon on Saturday for 5.10 miles and then did another 2 on my own. It is so much fun running with friends. We kept the pace easy and chatted the entire time. You know it’s an easy pace when you are having full on conversation that includes belly laughing. There is nothing like good girl time and catching up while running.
*Post run on Saturday, Glenn Matanza, a 4-time Iron Man, sports nutritionist and fitness/performance coach did an informal nutrition clinic! I tweeted about this and wish that more of you could have been there. I am organizing my notes (that I took in my head) to share with you all. He had such a different outlook on nutrition and racing and I loved it. I am hoping to feel and see the results from making minor changes at my half in less than 2 weeks!
* My hubby started a new job today! He has been home with the kids since his last company closed their doors so today is his first day back in the office. Let’s all wish him good luck as he starts down a new path!
*With my hubby going back to work meant the kids went back to school full-time. The princess turns 3 this weekend so she is in the Dolphin class. H-man is in pre-k! I think they are the “Sharks” so he is feeling pretty darn cool. I can’t wait to pick them up today and hear all about what they learned. They said they were both looking forward to arts and crafts. I am sure I will have plenty of new pics to hang in my office!
Today has been a little crazy with getting an 8 mile run in, taking the kids to school and making it into the office by 7:55 a.m. We shall see how long this lasts. I foresee 2-a-days in the schedule so that I am not pushing my pace and end up injuring myself.
Happy Monday my friends!
How was your weekend?

You are amazing! Getting in an 8-mile run before getting the kids to school and being at work before 8:00AM! I have no excuses to get my running in.
I had a great weekend!
My next race is this coming Sunday (Jenny’s Light) and it’s a 10K. I’ve actually never done this distance (only half marathons, one 5K, and one full marathon) so I’m excited about it!
Woohoo! GL with your 10k! I love that distance. Pace for 3.1, race for 3.1! You’ve got it girl!
