Day 19, I ran 4 miles. My time was o.k.

The run wasn’t too bad, but I had forgotten that I needed to fast for my blood work later that morning , which meant no tea, no protein shake, no banana. NOTHING. Just lots of water and by time I arrivde at the doctor’s office, I was pretty hydrated despite the color of my urine sample I left behind for my physical. Needless to say, I was STARVING by lunch time.
This morning (Day 20) I overslept and missed my 5:00 a.m. run. So, after the girls left for school, I did 25 minutes boot camp stuff with my BFF Sharon Mann and afterward I decided to run 3 miles with the baby in the stroller again. Thankfully, Little Lion Man cooperated and actually fell asleep. Phew. However, I still HATE running with a stroller. When I tweeted my time on Twitter, I whined about running with a stroller and @clairgp suggested doubling my distance when I run with a stroller. I really like that idea! When you think of it as 6.2 instead 3.1, I totally kicked ass!
3.1 Miles (a.k.a 6.2 stroller miles)

Tomorrow I will work out again with my BFF Sharon Mann. Saturday, I take on 8 miles with my running partner, Tiffany and I’m really looking forward to it, which sounds like an odd thing to say when you’re running 8 miles. But It’s been WAY too long since we’ve run together and I’m looking forward to catching up with her for an hour and half of uninterrupted chit-chat time. Believe me. It will fly by.
