Today being a Statutory holiday here,we have been home. I had decided to get my run in, first thing in the morning.
I finally was able to go at 10 am.With the twins being watched partly by the Big Brother, and partly by hubby darling, as he was working from home today!
Anyways I went for my run and you know what-I SUCKED at it BIG TIME...!!!!
First 25 minutes or so was okay, and then my throat started getting really dry, my lips went dry and I suddenly realized that I had not had any water since I had woken up-I mean imagine that-! Since the morning, I was so busy that I did not even think of hydrating until I was out running.
Anyways, I kept going, although really slow, however at a certain point I was at a uphill.
I had read somewhere that if you are on a uphill, just look down and keep running, and in some way the mind doesn't do the jeopardizing act of telling the body to stop, when the Brain says keep going! I kept looking down at the pavement--Oh and I was wearing a cap so that kinda helped me to keep going-Anyway after I was half way through my toe started cramping big time--So I stopped running and kept walking till I reached the top of the hill. Then started running from there on.
I had planned to run a 7 K today! After I reached another 1.5 km my toe was straight frozen-literally I could not move it much and by this time had to stop, hold on to a lamp post, and wiggle it a little.Well I decided to cut my run short and luckily as I was close to home I stopped running and walked the rest I guess 0.5 k back home.
Today's total distance 5.10 K
All in all a SUCKY run but I am so glad I did go nonetheless. I guess me being so dehydrated definitely has something to do with it! The Endorphin s helped me be sane during the day with the Twins!
That's me after the run with my glass of water
I napped ( after the longest time) in the afternoon when the twins were napping - In the evening after the twins went to bed I worked out AGAIN!!!!
I did JM's 'No More trouble Zone' in my gym
Me after the workout!
This is when I realized....I have this strange obsession of taking pictures of myself after a hard workout-Just to get a feel of how much I sweated and that gives me a kick of sorts! I know! It's weird! But Whatever keeps me going! Right? That's just me-as weird as I can be !
I definitely am seeing some change in the cheeks and the neck-I find its looking slimmer!Me like it---haha!
