Woke up and went for a 2 mile run, rounding it out to 3 with warm up and cooldown. I found a decent 2 mile run with some hills but not too many for my newbie runner self. I am still waffling on whether to do a half marathon on June 26th, I don’t want to burn myself out but I could also finish it walking under the 4 hour time limit, but right now I’m considering doing a series of 10ks the last of which would be June 25th, so do I do the 3 10k races or just 2? Is 6 months after starting running too soon for a half marathon? Should I wait longer to see if I still want to do it? So many thoughts floating around
Ben wasn’t feeling well so he stayed home today, he moped around all day while I tried to get things done 😛 After my run we had egg and Canadian bacon breakfast sandwiches with grapefruit. I then went on a hunt for more walls of water for my garden since winter has decided to move back in when all my seedlings are ready to go into the ground, or I have to re-pot them all, UGH. After a few attempts I did locate some and headed home. Ben and I took the dogs for a decently long walk before having leftover lamb in pitas, it was pretty tasty but I’m not sure how we will use up all the lamb before it goes bad. I then spent the afternoon filling the walls of water, I plan to check them tomorrow afternoon and see if I feel confident planting. All of this led to over 2 hours of activity on my Bodybugg and over 2700 calories burned and 14823 steps at 10 PM, not bad. For dinner we finished off the the cauliflower mac and cheese with some roasted veggies.
