But in the mean time.......having someone in the hospital and trying to continue with normal life activities is hard on everyone. So far, the only casualty is a broken iPhone. Eating healthy is almost impossible. Meals usually consist of take-out that is brought back to the hospital or like the last 2 nights - Pizza and Mexican. Scale this morning reported a 1.5 pound increase from Friday.
My next half marathon is the Jazz half marathon and I am trying to get a PR of 2:05. In my attempt to do the impossible, I am trying to strictly adhere to my running schedule. Today was not a running day, but I knew that some exercise would help.
So, I set the alarm early - but woke up 15 minutes before the alarm went off (don't you hate that). I laid in bed for a few minutes - not work falling back asleep. I tried to sneak out of be without waking my husband (he doesn't get up until 0530) but he must have been awake anyway. He said, "It's 4 o'clock". My reply, "yes, I know, I'm going spinning". He said, "Not, me" and fell back asleep.
Great spinning class. Monday's class was full of soldiers for their morning PT. It is what I needed. If I am lucky, I might have burned off 1 slice of pizza.
Tonight, I am doing the night shift at the hospital so that others can get a good night's sleep. I will get relieved in time to go do some strength training with my trainer - then go to bed. It is all worth it!!!
