True Confession Tuesday

True Confessions

I really don't have much time today and in all honesty had thought about not posting so you all get bullet points.  Lucky yous.

The Good:
  • I ran 17.82 miles last week, including my first ever group training run (8.27 miles outside in light snow). This also included my longest run without taking regular walk breaks.  I ran the entire 8.27 except for walking thru the 2 aide stations the group had set up.
  • I did a total of 159 push-ups during the 1st week of the 100 Push-up Challenge.  This was over 3 days and 5 sets each day, but DAMN - 159 push-ups! 
  • I've been getting at least 64 oz of water in every day (usually more, but I don't keep strict tabs on the numbers).
The Bad:
  • The push-ups I'm doing are on my knees and I almost feel like I need to qualify that every time the app posts my numbers to twitter.  I feel like I'm cheating but I'm afraid "real" push-ups will reinjure my stupid shoulder.
  • I've been uber stressed about a project (of sorts) at school and I've been stuffing my face with candy.  The candy is almost gone. The project is just beginning.
  • I had a paczki today.  I think I may have 1 more. *hangs head in shame*
  • I'm totally exhausted (physically and mentally) so my Daily Mile is still sitting at the Zero of Shame.  I'm supposed to do a 3 mile speed workout today, but am scooting from here as soon as I hit "publish" to go to my son's last swim meet, then dragging him with me to the gym.  I'm shooting for 1 mile 4x400 speed workout instead. 
  • I've only done 1 NTC workout this week.  I will do another tonight - or I will do the tworkout.
Two of my friends lost dear members of their families this week. (Prayers to Lisa and Barb.)  Our church also lost 2 members (one very suddenly).  This song was sung my our worship leader at one of the funerals.  I hope it gives my friends some comfort as well.


  1. i'd never thought of it as a funeral song, but death is really the ultimate release from our chains!

  2. So get over yourself on the pushups. You don't need to be hurting like you were at the beginning of the year. You're doing them.

    Also? I refuse to hit play on that video. I've cried enough in the last 24 hours, I don't feel like sobbing again. Thankyouverymuch.

    ((hugs)) you'll come out of all this stress just fine.

  3. Congrats on the 159 push-ups, modified or not, that's worthy of congrats!!! You are being very smart not to reinjure yourself. And way to go on making it the full group run without regular walk breaks!!!

    I just had my first paczki ever today and if you can eat two of them you are my hero! I am STILL full from it and I ate it at 11 am!

    I'm very sorry for your friends losses. My prayers are with their families.

  4. I had a paczki Friday...and then Saturday...and then today.... Whoops. :) I know I'm going to FAIL my weigh in tomorrow -- I've also crammed in as much coca cola as I can the last few days -- it's my main lent sacrifice. :p

  5. Guess I'm echoing what others are saying, but since I'm recovering from a shoulder injury from last August (still...) I gotta say that you are totally doing the right thing by listening to your body. My Physical Therapist says that the shoulder is the most unstable joint in the body, but think about how much work it does! Amazing you are strong enough to handle 159 pushups!!!

  6. Love Chris Tomlin!! He is definitely anointed with amazing singing ability!


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

Happy New Year 2020
