Yup another hello Wednesday from moi! Life has been pretty fabulous My exams are going well, my Mom’s visit has been a blast, I feel like I’m beating the stress back and relaxing a bit more and trusting my brain to be able to take on all I am challenged with.
This weekend Mom and I got away and went to Charleston as I had posted yesterday. It really was fabulous, and even though I had an exam I was studying for as we drove up to Charleston, and did a pre-exam review that evening, and then got up and did a pre-exam review again before my run, and yes then reviewed some of the protocols with a pretty good youtube site I found. I still had time for fun.
I really had a great time pulling out my camera and getting in some quality time behind the lens.
As well, I haven’t been to Yoga in a few weekends with our adventures, but decided a little play on the amazing grounds of Middleton Place were in order. Bridge pose anyone? I wasn’t the only one, there was another guy who came up to the top of the hill, laid down and ROLLED down the grassy hill laughing his butt off. Something about a big open lawn brings out the kid in you.
My first 5k is coming in a few days. I mean I’ve run distance before, and the Susan G. Komen I believe was a 5k. I don’t really have my stats on it, I had run with a friend of mine for fun. So I’m calling this my first 5k because for once I’m really starting to love the feeling I get when I run. I guess maybe that is what they call the runners high? I always feel like my first 1/2 mile is just shaking it off, getting into it. Then I hit my groove. Somedays I just hit a wall, but mostly I feel good. I was so proud of myself for actually getting up on a vacation day with Mom and running at the Air Force base we stayed at. They had a fitness trail that I tried to follow, I only did the 2 mile course as I couldn’t figure out where I was supposed to go – I guess I could have just lapped again. But some days its the intention and the pat on the back for just making that baby step, breaking the old habits and enjoying a new one.
