Back on track...

So, I realize it's been a little quiet lately from the Nashville side, lately. That's what happens when a friend comes into town for a week, you get drunk every day of said week, yet still have to drag your hungover ass to work every morning because there is a huge deadline looming (I may or may not have thrown up at work and spent a good two hours bit of time with my head on my desk one of those mornings). And then last week, I spent my time wrapping up for the deadline and catching up on other things at work, as well as detoxing (most importantly). I've been running though! It's just not really been anything noteworthy.

I'm still trying to get myself back into hardcore mode. It's not been as easy as I thought it would be... but, I am on my way. This week should be a week of high mileage. Aside from my regular morning runs... I'm doing a 2-a-day (today and possibly wednesday, too), running a 15k race on Saturday and then a 21 mile training run on Sunday (my favorite training run!). It should be a good week and I'm pumped. I've missed having running-centered weekends.

Aside from my running... I'm also back to counting calories. Vandy-Montana and I's Weight Loss Challenge #2 ends in a couple of weeks, and I've got some catching up to do. But I'm not worried. I know I'll be ready for the weigh-in.

Also, a quick shout out to my best friend, Steph, who ran her first 5k this weekend! Congrats! So, when's your first marathon? :)

Thanks for the shout out! You have definitely been a huge influence on me and my running, so you should feel partly responsible. I'm already planning another 5k in October!!

Haha, just read Stephanie's comment. Can I say: Objection, non-responsive. I'm also guilty of trying to turn my non-running friends into running friends, and my 5k running friends into marathon running friends.

Sometimes I think having a bad few days is awesomely motivating for staying on track when you buckle down. You get it out of your system so to speak. At least, that's what I tell myself for when I start to get back on track after the move...
