One More Week.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I've made it one more week without running.  This was a harder week - I have found I really don't feel like myself when I have all of this pent up nervous energy.  Some weeks I handle it better (i.e. lots of cross-training and weightlifting) and some weeks I handle it worse (i.e. yelling at my husband).  I still can't wrap my head around another eight weeks off (it's already been TEN), so I'm just trying to take it one week at a time.

On the bright side, all of this not running has really opened up my weekends!  On Sunday, the kids and I took off while my husband installed a new patio door for us.  We headed down to visit my uncle who had brought up a pumpkin he grew for the Mishicot Pumpkin Fest.

325 pounds of pumpkin!

Today I'm taking the first step to knock out one of the items on my List of Goals.  Speaking of which, I need a better name for that - help a mama out!

I'll keep you in suspense until tomorrow - but it's scary and I'll be sure to have picture documentation to ensure the embarrassment can never fade.

Have a great Monday!


  1. Just think of all the practice you're getting in PATIENCE (ok, feeble attempt at being all glass-half-full)!

    OK, then just think about how much you're going to love running when you can get back into it!

    And you'll have us to cheer you on every step :)

  2. Whoa! Look at the size of that pumpkin. Holy moly.

  3. We grew big pumpkins one year, but none of them got that big! That is incredible. Sorry about the no running. I am with you on that one. I tried the treadmill today for one painful minute. Not ready yet. You can always try biking and swimming and then by the time your leg is healed you will be ready for a triathlon!

  4. That pumpkin is HUGE!!!!

    And you should try to stick with strength training. It will help with the nervous energy and make you STRONG.

  5. so glad you have been able to enjoy your weekends with the fam! totally understand about the patience thing though...its so dang tough! thinking of you!

  6. I love your list of goals. I can't imagine YOU being afraid of public speaking. You're so witty and outspoken in type.


Hearing from you makes me happy! :)
