My legs have not felt like running the past two days. I've been pushing though it. I skipped running on the treadmill in hopes that doing an hour of the cross ramp would give my legs the needed rest to feel like running. Today, nothing felt good. I just wanted to walk.. but I know every step counts and I work towards my 6 mile goal every day.
I break up my workout into 2 sections, 3 miles at a time. I do this on my outdoor running miles to. It's just a lot easier to say I'm going 3 or 4 miles then I'm running 6 to 8 miles. It usually feels the hardest the first mile.. sometimes longer.. but at least 30 minutes in I'm feeling better and am into running.I think running outside will get me out of this every step is feeling really difficult stage. It's taking a lot and I mean a lot of effort to keep going. It probably seems like I have this issue a lot but I don't. I just like every day to feel great and go so quickly that I want to keep running... I don't like the days where I want the run to end and I'm checking every second on the clock.
I ate way too much of this cinnamon coffee cake yesterday. I hate to admit we hardly have any left because that's how much I ate. I had it at every meal and for a snack. I just can't control myself and there are just those certain foods that I should never have around. This is definitely one of the foods that I have issues with controlled portions.
I'm missing this fun little guy already. We had such a good time yesterday. He is just learning so much and its so fun to see that progress. What I am excited about..? I get to spend 5 whole days in Washington DC with Kendra and Evan. Evan and I will tour the city while his mom is at a work conference. We are staying 1 mile from the Mall and 2 miles from the Zoo. All will be within walking distance so we definitely are going to get some exercise. I haven't been back to DC in .. about 20 years. I was born in DC and have never seen the cherry trees in bloom and I hope there are some blooms left.
