Days 5 & 6.

Sorry for not updating yesterday. It was a really lazy day for me.

I woke up and opened at work at 4:30 in the morning. I had a major headache all day, and I wasn't really feeling all to well as the day went on. In the afternoon when I got home, I laid down to take a nap, and slept most of the day away. We had dinner at a pizza place, and I was pretty stuffed, and feeling a lil guilty about how much I ate, but I definitely didn't feel up to running, so it was officially a day off. My cousin and her husband came in to spend the weekend, so that also distracted me from any exercise I may have gotten yesterday.

Today was alright. I woke up a little later than I wanted to for getting ready for work, so I had to rush breakfast. This caused me to nearly choke to death on a hard boiled egg. It was tragic, and it totally started my day off on the wrong foot. But it got better as the day went on. I came home and laid down for about an hour or so, and then we had a nice dinner with all the family. I was in a pretty good mood at this point, and playing with my cousins little baby daughter was downright fun. We caught a break in the heat today following a shower this afternoon, so I took advantage of it. Seeing as how tomorrow is my long run though, I didn't want to set myself up for failure, so my aunt and I went out and walked two miles. We chatted and had a pretty good time, and then on the way home I had her drop me off a lil more than a mile from the house, and I ran the rest of the way home to get a little more in since I was feeling guilty about the food from yesterday.

So all in all a little more than three miles today. Nothing hard at all. Tomorrow is a solid seven miles, and I am not cutting myself short. So I will post afterwards how that goes. I have the day off work, so after church and lunch I will most likely go out in the afternoon, but who knows what tomorrow holds. I will keep you guys updated. Thanks again for the support and encouragement!
