I think I can, I think I can...


A slightly slower pace this morning...I'm not sure if I was tired or because I was a little more sore this morning when I got up than I was yesterday (kind of expected that) but I'm not unhappy with my pace.

I did a tad over 3 miles in 1:16, and the hip pain held off until I was over the 2.5 mile mark. By then my feet were also sliding a tiny bit in my shoes, which makes me wonder about my socks...I may look for a different brand, something a little bit thicker that will grip the inside of my shoe better, yet still wick away the sweat.

I'm not a morning person, but because I skipped my DDAVP last night I was up every hour and a half peeing, and when I had to get up at 7:15 I stayed up, ate an early breakfast, and then headed out. There are people out there! In the morning! Who'da thunk?

My hips and feet were having a serious discussion with me when I got home...I told them to shut up a few times and when they wouldn't, I decided to teach them a lesson and got on the Trikke for a little bit...4.6 miles in about 48 minutes.

My pace with that is definitely improving from when I first started riding the Trikke a little over a month ago. If I hadn't walked this morning I could have gone quite a bit longer on the Trikke, but at mile 4.05 I was hit with a wave of nausea and took that as a signal to head home.

I'm delicate, you know.

You are off to a great start.

The schedule was in my spam folder...that's what gmail thinks of you ;)

Week 21 isn't too far off from what I was already planning, so I don't feel too far behind. I'll probably Trikke ride tomorrow for cardio, and maybe back off a little bit on the mileage I had planned for Sat & Sun. I was planning six miles, that might be too ambitious.

LOL I think everyone knows who my moob mommy is. He's just protective...very supportive, but protective...
