September 14th, 2010 – 3.02 Mile

The continued prayer is, “Lord keep me focused. Keep my mind stayed on You. Help me to bring You praise. I know You believe in me. Please help me in my unbelief. Amen.”

Tonight’s run was really awesome. I can’t help thinking I was cheating just to get the miles. We took Sarah to the Dog Park and I asked Chris and the kids to just leave me there so I could run home.

The route is all downhill. The last mile leveled out but the first 2 were a breeze. I thought I should be ashamed to book these miles because it was so easy, but miles are miles and this wasn’t exactly a bad workout. It felt great to just be running. And I must say, I was impressed by the fact that I was to a point in my training where I thought 3 miles of any kind was no big deal. I remember a time when I felt like I needed a defibrillator after only 2 miles.

I was concerned that I could be overtraining, but I think I’m OK. I will rest tomorrow. I had been having trouble sleeping because I’d been plagued with anxiety attacks. This happens when I overdose on caffeine. I had a whole pack of Sports Beans and another pack of Shot Bloks on Sunday when I did 10 miles. So it may not have been wise to do a run when I was so fatigued from training and lack of sleep.

But since I had to run, this was the perfect route. So pleasant, so easy, so relaxing. My body is starting to push back with pain and fatigue so I will rest tomorrow night and get to some laundry that I have been ignoring for *way* too long. The kitchen’s a mess and it’s been about a week since I’ve baked cupcakes and my kids deserve better than living a life in a home without cupcakes.

I love cupcakes!!!
