True Confession Tuesday: School's Back In Session



True Confessions


School is back in full force here in Michigan (we don't officially start with kids until after Labor Day-I know a lot of you have been back in the groove for several weeks already and I will curse you all in June when you are all playing in the sun and I'm sweltering in a classroom).  The resulting upset of our summer routine is the main reason for my confessions:
  • The start of the school year always means major adjustments to our schedule and changes in routine.  My 1/2 marathon is a mere 32 days away.  That is just over a month to stay on track and stay healthy.  I've missed a few auxiliary workouts (strength and cross trainings).
  • I've managed to get all my runs in, including my Longest.Run.Ever.  Hubs and I clocked 8 miles in 1:26:08 in the POURING RAIN last weekend.  Wanna feel like a bad ass?  Run 8 miles in the rain.  Trust, it works.
  • I added some serious hill training to my repertoire today.  After school and when K got done with volleyball practice, I ran almost 6 miles in an hour.  With several good rolling hills along the route. Ouch.
  • I've discovered I really don't like running next to the road, even if it's on a running path or sidewalk.  Exhaust is nasty.  I'm still coughing and clearing my throat.
  • The start of the school year, with multiple sports schedules and K often double booked between gymnastics and volleyball, I've eaten more fast food than I should have.
  • I made a pork roast in the crock pot this week which was my dinner last night and will be dinner again tonight.  A little more sodium than I should have (hello, bloat) but it's still better than a Big Mac and fries and McDonald's.
  • I'm sure there is more that I should confess, but my brain hasn't started working yet after my run and I'm seriously low on blood sugar and the moment. 
  • I'm signed up for the next challenge from shrinkingjeans: Shrinkvivor!  Can't wait to get down with Tribe NAVY Seals.  You know what a bunch of bad asses those Seals can be!
So there's my confessions.  How'd you do this week?  Spill and then link up with shrinkingjeans!

Comments are like big, squishy hugs to me - and I love hugs!

Is anybody out there?

So, it would appear I posted about six times in 2016.  Here it is, half way through 2017, and I haven't written a darn thing. In my de...
