Reunited and it feels so good! My charger came in the mail yesterday and I am thrilled. I don’t have too many updates, other than my new favorite thing to do at the gym. 🙂
I have been going to the Y in the morning to lap swim and I freaking love it.
I am strictly swimming the free style because that is all I know, but I have really enjoyed it.
I have been swimming for 30 minutes each morning, then getting on a Stair Master for another 30 minutes and it has been fantastic.
I have zero pain in my foot when I swim and no pain on the Stair Master so that makes me happy.
The first couple of times I swam I was huffing and puffing, but it is getting easier as I keep swimming each morning.
I am hoping to be running again within the next couple of weeks, as that is my main love and I miss it!
The Des Moines Marathon is this Sunday and I am still extremely upset about not being able to run it. I won’t talk much about it because I want to throw myself a pity party and cry, and that is not being positive!
I am more determined than ever to focus on healthy training again once I get the all clear to start running agin.
Not being able to run makes me really appreciate when I can run, and just makes me want to push myself when I get back to it.
Not related to exercise…
My aunt, cousin, her friend and I went on our annual girls trip, the “Fall Extravaganza” last weekend and had an insanely fun time.
We always go on a haunted hayrack ride on Friday. Within minutes I was on the floor of the hayrack screaming.
We did a little walking at Backbone State Park, went through cave on a boat, then stayed the night in my favorite town of McGregor, Iowa. I just love that place!
I just purchased two new historical fictions and a favorite bookstore of mine, the Paper Moon. Happiness.
My cousin and I could not resist the playground.
For the past four years we have been wearing these glasses to Josie’s, the bar/restaurant in McGregor. We make so many friends this way! We also bring our mannequin hands with us, Alejandro and Fernando.
Anyways, have a great Friday tomorrow! I just finished Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal so I need to get to bed so I can swim early in the morning!
