I’m starting to get a little nervous for the half marathon. Between two full-on sicknesses, I’ve pretty much blown 2 weeks out of the 12 I’ve “dedicated” to this race. I’m not really well-versed in everything that training entails, so I seriously have no clue how much this will factor in come race day. I mean, yeah, it probably means I could have done better. But how would I ever actually know? I think the only thing I can do at this point is focus on building myself back up, getting back on track, and basically just deciding to pretend like I never skipped a single run. That should work.
I started the process by laying around in my pajamas all morning. It does wonders for your soul, I promise.
We did brush our teeth, though. We aren’t wild animals. Oh, and no, I have no desire to retire any of the Christmas pajamas any time soon.
When we finally got dressed, we took a long walk and got some fresh air. Also very good for your soul. Maddux got to touch a fish, so his life was basically complete at that point.
Then, because I wanted to make up for being sick during all the Christmas fun, I made everyone go to Chuck E Cheese’s. It kind of backfired on me because it was a zoo in there. So many kids, so little supervision. We didn’t stay long, but I still made out like a bandit. I am unstoppable on simple games like “push this button in a timely manner”. Games that require any real skills aren’t my thing.
To top off our exciting day, we threw a party for ourselves. I wasn’t kidding when I said I wanted to eat all the party food I missed out on over the holidays. I poured my new white chocolate syrup all over that pineapple in what was clearly my most brilliant decision-making moment of the day. Party food is the best food.
I’ll run tomorrow. Today was all about boosting myself up, right? 😉
