Has it been a week already?
The Shamu Rollercoaster at Sea World
This has been, well, quite a week.
I worked about 50 hours - and I have the tiredness to prove it! With all that work, I couldn't seem to find a way to get a run in. I did run 3 miles on Monday and walked about 6 miles with a friend on Tuesday. But that was it. I intended to get back to the weights but didn't do it. So I worked hard this week, but not on my running.
On the one hand, I told myself that I was still kicking back since the marathon (which I kinda was). When I did really want to run, my schedule just didn't allow for it. At the end of the week it came down to sleep or running. And I really needed the sleep.
Today I slept in! I didn't get up until I felt like it, somewhere around 10:30 am. Hubby had studying to do all day so I took it upon myself to get the kids out of the house and out to Sea World.
So we walked around Sea World from around 1 pm until closing time at 6 pm. It was a lot of fun. We played around Shamu's Happy Harbor when we rode the roller coaster in the video. It was a challenge (that I failed) to hold the camera still while whipping around from side to side.
As for my running, I have decided to get back into training with my first goal race the Winter Park Road Race 10K in March. I am hoping to do much more cross training - weights and elliptical work. I will have to be very strict with scheduling since the workload at the office will probably not let up for the next 90 days or so. The running is critical to surviving all of that so I will find a way!
Run strong everyone!
