Another super hungry day. Also, I walked half a mile during lunch at work and my legs were screaming at me. I could barely get up the stairs when I got home. I had to skip my run. :( I rested on my recliner all evening and they felt better when I went to bed. Hopefully I will be good to run on Thursday.

Ugh. I am super hungry lately. It just did not seem like i could get enough to eat today. Also, my legs were really hurting from my run on Sunday, so I had to skip Curves...

Return from Never Never Land

Ok, so I really had not intended to neglect the blog for so long. I really did not want to spend any time on the computer while I was on vacation and then I kept forgetting once I got back. Vacation always throws me off my normal routine for a couple of weeks. I finally got back into tracking my food this past Friday. That was what, three weeks? Egads.

I had a great trip to Walt Disney World. Burned lots of calories and ate lots of calories. Bought way more stuff than I should have. Did some things that I had not done before. It was HOT, but tolerable once the morning humidity burned off. Feet did great; very few problems. :) Looking forward to my next trip. That probably won't be until January for the Half. Seeing how hard it was to get back into gear after this one, I think I will avoid any trips until the race.

I have finally made the transition to running outside. I found a great segment of the Capitol City Trail. Last Thursday went great, but I did overdo it a bit. I gave myself an extra recovery day and ran Sunday instead of Saturday. That one HURT. A lot. I am not sure why it was so difficult. I did get through it though. I am trying to decide whether I should run on the treadmill on Tuesday or hit the trail again. It hurts to walk today, so perhaps the shock absorption of the treadmill would be helpful.

I will start posting daily again tomorrow morning once I have today's numbers.
