Starting Over

I have decided that I am not going to do the Siesta Key race. I took in and accounted for that I have to work Friday, and Then I don't get home till 8-8:30 ish and then we would have to pack the car, and drive 3 hours to the hotel. Then turn around and get up and be out the door by 5a. The kids would complain the entire time. =( also I do not feel that I am ready to run in the sand. SO this month I do not think I will be doing any kind of racing. {work related}

So looking at the bright side of this, it gives me the entire month to prepare for July, and gain control on my breathing. Maybe just maybe get a handle on my female issues that are keeping me from doing these things I love to do. {the -2 for May are back do to bloating}

October races, E and I were talking about them last night. E is having issues with his left foot. The doctor had gave him stretching exercises. Well they are not helping. We are waiting on a call back, and see if the doctor is going to send him to PT, or another doctor. At the moment he will not be doing the half marathon. E is having a hard time with that. But he plans on even walking the 5k just so he can get his not so scary ticket. =) My daughter is doing the 5k too. She wants to go to NSSHP!!! YAY!!! Training for the long distance again I will be alone, or he will ride his bike with me.
That means I will have to do the Goofy challenge without him. E wasn't going to do that, but he was going to the half but at the moment he's not running anything.

The wine and dine is 50% full, the half marathon in Jan. 2011 is 50% full too.

I am submitting my time for October when I go to work tomorrow. That way they can't say I didn't turn it in in a timely manner,I spoke with my co worker who I share the desk with, she said she isn't going any where in October. This should not be a problem!!! Like in May and all the dumb excuses why they would not give it to me.

Yesterday evening I hit the TM and did 30 minutes of hill incline 6.5. Today I am going to do my 30 minute shred, and walk it. Then I will be headed out to the pool. I have to over come this water thing!!!

I have to confess. I have not been doing much with the Team Voice, Club 8{ i haven't lost a thing to donate}, or listening to the podcast. I am so behind it sucks. At least in the new car I can listen to all of it now!!! I am not going to dwell on the stuff I have not done. Just keep moving forward. =)

Probably a smart move to skip this race. Better to be prepared than end up injured due to tiredness and lack of training for the sand. And who needs complaining kids at a race ;).

Sorry to hear that E is still having problems with his foot. I had hoped that things would have started to ease up for him. I hope he finds out what is wrong and can get it corrected.

While I can't be there in person to help you train - let me know what I can do. We're in this together and we'll get through it.

As for the races - you won't be alone there either. Remember there'll be lots of Team Voicers there.

Club 8 - I've been donated $2 or so for every pound I've gained and if I've been relatively even I've just decided what to give. Since I've totally let myself down in terms of weight loss at least I can give a few bucks every month and know that it will help someone.

Chin up and keep going. You'll get over your water issues and health issues and things will start clicking again!
