Yesterday was a good day. A whole lot better than Sunday. I was able to get a 4 mile run in, had a good breakfast, went and saw Larry Crowne (it was a cute movie, not too bad), and then had a lot of friends and family over for a big dinner. My dad cooked up 6 racks of ribs, and a lot of other people brought over sides or dessert. It was a feast. I was proud of myself. I didn't eat too much. I was in control! I did not want to be the one lighting all the fireworks again this year, but I was roped into it. We had a nice spread and put on quite the show!
We didn't get back until 11 pm, and I didn't get to sleep until 11:30. I still dragged my butt out of bed at 4 am and made it on time to run with Nixa Running. Very cool group. They had a 5 mile run planned this morning. I was a little overwhelmed with the thought of 5 miles, but I knocked it out with the help of Kellie and Chris. They ran with me and walked when I needed the breaks. That really helped me! I need that kind of support. It just makes me better. If I run all the days I have planned with them and my long run on Saturday, I will run 30 miles this week! I remember when a 10 mile week was a big deal!
I went to boot camp after my run and did a killer workout. I am pretty tired. Let's see how today goes. I know for sure I will be going to bed early.
