It's Official, I am Super Duper Excited Now!!

Hellllloooooo Humans!!!!!! {aaaggghhhhhaa}

The last 2 days have been tough. Work has been busy. My floor was bombed with surgeries.

First off the thing that has been weighing on my head is the time off. I got my schedule on Wednesday. I didn't see it till I took a break in the morning. I ran over to the board and when I saw that they GAVE ME THE TIME OFF!!!! I was so excited and happy I was crying!!! No one was able to wipe the smile off my face. Even if we had a code I would have smiled through the entire thing.

We will be arriving late on 1/6/09. and staying through 1/11/09!!!!!! HOLY CATS!!! This is really going to happen!!! I am going to be doing the Disney Half Marathon!!! Are you kidding me!!!??!! {grinning here, glowing}

SO back to training. Tuesday I did the hill sprints. my total mileage for that was 2.96 my fastest yet!!!! Very proud. And then on Wednesday I rested since I was so tired,I fell asleep eating dinner. Yes eating dinner, which is a lite meal. Tonight I had to do the dreadmill, the weather here is nasty, so I RAN the entire 5k loop non stop, in 39 minutes, that was a 12 minute pace average. 496 in calories.speed 5.0 I could breathe, and I have not EVER been able to go that fast!!! HOLY CATS!!

We got our new trainers. I was able get women's this time and they are smaller!!! They are still Brooks. I saw a fanny pack, with a water bottle, that lays horizontal and has a pocket big enough for phone,keys and snack. I will be getting this one.

I made an appointment to see my Orthro Doctor after the Half Marathon. Why?? So I can show off my medals, and create a plan to continue to the Full.And find out if I have ITS band issues in my left knee area. {he is also a Sports Medicine Doctor too 3rd in the nation!!

Holy Cats!!! I am really going to get to do this!!!!!

Miles this week : 12.56{ my week ends on Saturday}
