not an actual pic of me!
Okay people here is my warning, DO NOT MIX
It will lead to nothing good!! I seriously felt like I was going to DIE! Thank goodness after 11:00 that morning I started to feel better. But seriously people be careful with the Straw-ber-Rita's, they are more deadly than you think. I don't think I have felt that bad since LAST 4th of July!! LOL it seems to be a theme for me. I don't particularly like that holiday so I should probably over do it so I don't bitch at my husband too much about the ridiculous things he is doing. STUPID!
Any ways, I did have a good 4 day weekend, other than spending the 5th of July in the bathroom. I did get some running in and I spent some time with my favorite boys.
could they be any cuter together?!?!?
R and I went to Monster's University on Sunday afternoon. It was a cute movie and it is the first movie that he has made it through at the movie theater. I have to say all in all it was a good weekend.
R watching the movie.
Oh I also wanted to say that if you are running when it is 93 degrees outside that you should probably take some water with you. I went for a run yesterday and the first mile felt GREAT and then shortly after that things went down hill and I couldn't figure it out. Well I had ZERO water before my run and it was taking a toll on me. Some days I forget the most simple things!! Duh Jessica, it is hot outside, you should probably drink water! So I ran 3 miles and then walked home the last mile and let me tell you that last mile that I walked was the WORST mile. I almost called Jed to have him pick me up. But once I got home and drank some water and cooled off, I started to feel a lot better. But what I did was stupid and I will NOT do that again. PLEASE PEOPLE LEARN FROM MY STUPIDITY, don't run unless you are properly hydrated or have water with you (especially if you are going for more than a mile!)
Okay so why do I need to be able to run 8 miles without stopping by the middle of September. And what event am I so worried about? It is the this:
I talked about this before, but now it feels like it is right around the corner. So yeah I need to get my ass in gear. From what I have read I NEED to be able to run 8 miles without stopping and strength training. One of the things they suggest is to do some of your workouts at a play ground so you can get on the monkey bars and work on just holding on to your own weight. I still feel like I have a long ways to go before I am ready for this. It is a 12 mile obstacle course and it is pretty intense. There is fire, icy water, electric thingies, walls, mud, etc. I have not registered for it yet, I will probably do that at the end of this month. It is an expensive event and I have this weird feeling that I am going to find out I am pregnant right before the darn thing so I have been putting off the registration, I don't want to waste my money. But then again maybe the money will be worth it if it means that I will get pregnant!! LOL
Have any of you done a Tough Mudder or a similar long obstacle course? If so, how did you train? Let me add that I will be doing this with a team so I am doing it solo, but I also don't want to be the one holding back my team. I am so excited for it, but also so scared at the same time.
Well that is all I got for y'all today. I hope you all had a GREAT weekend. Now we return to our normal lives, 5 day work weeks and 2 day weekends. THAT REALLY SUCKS!! I think it should be mandatory to have a 4 weekend in EVERY month. Oh man, that would be AWESOME!!
See y'all on Wednesday!!
