Between performing at a street fair in our area and walking around the street fair, I got almost 12,000 steps in on Friday. I said to myself, "Well, why not get on the treadmill and see if you can get in any more steps?"
So I did.
I even managed to get in a run on Sunday. Funny thing, one of the guys in the show I am in sent me a text message and told me I inspired him to go for a run. Reading that inspired ME to go for a run. Three miles on Sunday felt so good! It wasn't my fastest three miles ever, but I ended up with an average pace of 11:54. I'm trying to throw some speed stuff in there since I am officially in Chicago Half Marathon training mode.
It's even cool enough I might be able to run outside this week! YAY to that!
Then there's this:
I know the world has been struck by tragedy over the past few days. It breaks my heart into a million pieces and just when I think I have it back together again something comes along and shatters all my hard work. I am truly, truly sad. I've never written this blog to be political. For me, it's mostly a place for me to keep track of my weight loss and fitness efforts over the years. So, if you read posts from me that aren't about terrorist attacks or snipers killing off police officers it isn't because I am not thinking about them. Trust me, I am thinking about them. It's because this is my tiny little place on the internet. And as long as I control what is put into this tiny little space, I'm going to focus on the things that keep my world spinning, not the things that tear it apart.
