169.6. . .Oops! Not oops, really. I knew what I was doing and set September 1st as my end date. I have not run since July 19th and I have been on vacation for the last two weeks so I have been carefree. Starting today it is time to care again.
It's hard though. Since I've been back from my trip I have been feeling my tired-achy-self again. We visited my sister, her husband, and their new babies in Vancouver. While I was there I got up early, washed baby bottles, made breakfast, prepared dinner in the slow cooker a few times, and took my kids out for a while during the day; and I felt good. Since I've been back I am back to horrible sleeps, not wanting to get up, and sore achy joints again. And the dread of returning to work tomorrow. (As I'm sure everyone wishes, I wish I didn't have to work!)
The first solution to this is to buy a new bed. Hopefully this will alleviate the horrible sleeps and some of the achy joints. The second solution has to be to get moving again! I had far less trouble with my achy hips when I was running. I am hoping the return to behaving myself will not be too difficult as I feel like I am in the right mind-set right now.
