Long run, finally!

Good Evening,

sorry for the couple days off, but with working two nights this week (tues. and wednesday) and then needing to stay awake with the kids on thursday when scott was at! I was wiped out and needed a lot of sleep to catch up!

Wednesday consisted of sleeping most of the day after working until 730am! When I woke up it was off to the gym for a quick hour and a half workout before heading to work again! If I remember correctly I did an hour on the elliptical and 30 minutes on the bike. Very boring, not too much of a challenge, but it does wake me up really well before another night shift!

Thursday was a day off, I had enough of a challenge staying awake with a one and three year old, I was hoping to get to the gym when my hubby got home from work, but after he got home I just had no energy, do it was just a day off!

Today I got in a great run, unfortunately it was all on a treadmill at the gym because it was 10 degrees outside and very windy. I have no problem running up to about 10 miles on the treadmill, much longer and it does get a bit boring! But, I ran 16 miles in 2 hours, I was happy with that. My legs felt a little sore when i was done, so I was happy!

Tomorrow we have my nephews birthday party up by alexandria, we will see if i can get my buns out of bed at 530 so i can go to the gym and get in a workout before we leave at 8!

Hope you have a great weekend!



  1. 16 miles on a treadmill?! wow. way to go! I can barely stand 5 on a treadmill.

  2. Yeah, I know! But, I cannot stand running out in the cold all by myself. And in our little town there are really not any others that are able to run at the same times that I am or the distance that I run, so hence the reason for the treadmill workout!
