I'm Still Here

I am having trouble finding the time to blog lately. I spend my day on the computer at work and when I get home the last thing I want to do is get on the computer some more. I do miss blogging but even now I am at a loss as to what to write about. I also really want to get caught up on everyone’s blogs but I just haven’t. I'm sorry.

I have been running. I did 6 miles the other day and I also decided to try the hill behind the local collage. I wanted to see how dry it was. Well – let’s just say that it needs to dry out some more! I had to give Skylar a bath because she was so muddy afterwards and I had mud up to my knees! It is time to start making sure I am getting in 4 runs a week.

Another thing I noticed today was the my diet does affect my running. I had a breakfast burrito and then some jelly beans and then some chips. At lunch today I was going to head out for a 5 mile run. I did 2 miles and I was not into it. I hit a wall. So I walked did my lunges and squats and then I ran another mile back to work – at this point I was finally feeling better. No more junk food before a run anymore!

This weekend Joe went back to New Jersey to visit his family. I am going to see if I can get a friend to watch the girls for a couple of hours on Sunday so I can go for a long run. There is a local race that is a 25K Trail Run (15.5 miles). It is on May 23rd at Hartman Rocks. It will be close as it if I am ready for it or not but for now I am keeping it in the back of my mind.
