Day 64- 100 Day Challenge

Day 64, 36 days left...  We are into the SIXTIES!!
The Google spreadsheet is HERE.  Click on it and make sure to put an X on the days you follow through.  

QOTD: Anything else you guys have questions about or want me to post for you?  I think I'm going to take this section out because I haven't had too many answer them.  

My Daily Update: The Hobble Creek Half Marathon filled up in just over TWO hours yesterday.  Crazy!  I'm glad I signed up and just have to remind myself not to go into it with high expectations.  I'm sure I'll have to walk some of it, and I definitely won't be beating my 2:05 from two years ago.  That's alright, though.  My body is different now and I need to just be happy with the fact I can do 13 miles.  Period.

Josh woke up today with a bad cough and nasty nose so canceled the daycare.  Instead I borrowed my friend, Kim's, jogging stroller and went down to the Legacy Parkway Trail.  It's a nice paved walkway where lots of bikers and runners go.  I don't like that there are lots of bugs and it's so close to the highway.  Not a very scenic route... but, it is flat and when you live on a big mountain, that's a plus.  I ran about an 11 minute mile pushing the stroller in a headwind and kept thinking how miserable I was.  I bow down to you moms who do this all the time.  It's rough!  I ran another 1/2 mile, then decided to have fun with Josh and take our time on the way back.  I showed him some black birds and pill bugs.  We made one roll into a ball and waited a few minutes for it to uncurl.  Josh loved it.  I'm so glad the weather is getting nicer.  Yesterday we were at the park with some friends for over two hours and I noticed last night my face was sunburned.  Bring on summer!!

PS Other big news... I've lost FIVE lbs.  I was 138 when I started this challenge March 1st, and today I weighed myself and am at 133.  Couldn't believe it!  I had to re-weigh myself twice just to make sure it wasn't a fluke.  I'm supposed to start my period in a few days so might gain it all back, but that's alright.  Today I weigh 133.  This is my lowest weight since I was basically starving myself my first semester in college.  And this time, I'm eating healthy and exercising, doing it the RIGHT way.  Woot Woot!   

My Comments to You:

Ash- How did your 5K go today?  Also, your goal of a 5K in 27 minutes is totally doable.  You will do it!  Can't wait to hear how you're 12K goes.  What day is it?  So sad about your Iowa friend.  Do they know what happened?  Mom said you guys were thinking of coming down for the funeral.  Have you decided for sure if you are or not?

So, the 5k didn't go as well as I'd hoped. It actually didn't go at all. I got out on my run and immediately felt off. It was really, really windy which kind of zapped the adrenaline out of me. I felt like I was just pushing through the wind, but not going very fast. I ended up running 2 miles in just over 18 minutes, and then I came back home, stretched, drank my water and then was out again a couple hours later to run a couple more miles with my friend. She was also struggling because of the wind, so it made me feel like at least it wasn't ALL in my head. I think I really have a problem with keeping myself motivated and fear of failure. I tend to set these goals for myself and after venturing out and trying to accomplish them, I immediately feel uninterested and forget why I even care. Then I just feel like giving up, and I do. I don't like this about myself, but it's something I've had a problem with for as long as I can remember. Definitely something to work on that I would benefit greatly from overcoming.

My 12k is May 14th, and I'm not too stressed about it. I don't think I'll get some awesome, amazing time, but I don't care. I'm doing it because I know I can and whatever time I get, I'll be happy with. I just feel physically better from running and so even if I don't run very fast, I'm okay with that.

Yes, we're planning on coming out to Utah for the funeral. We'll get there Friday morning and head immediately to the funeral which is in Highland. We'll probably spend all day Friday with her family as well as our other Iowa friends. Then we'll have a little bit of time on Saturday to do some stuff (we plan on visiting with Whitney and Chad's brother since they'll be close), but we leave that night to fly back to Portland. It's a quick trip, but an important one. We were very close to Wendy, so it's been pretty devastating. I post on my Facebook about what happened to her, and that's about all I know. I feel horrible for her husband and 3 little kids. It literally makes me sick. Through all of this, though, it's made me realize what's important and made me even more grateful for our knowledge of eternal families. Anyway, that's what's going on.
