4 things


1. I’m finally getting on track with my marathon training. I attempted to do a flexible training plan, but I should have known better than to try a plan. I’m more of an increase my long run when it feels right kind of girl. I’m such a planner except for running – I prefer to fly by the seat of my pants in this arena. Maybe it is because planning for something in June with the military lifestyle is full on crazy. Hopefully my husband wont be coming or going on race day. Well, I guess it is okay if he is coming home on race day. Monday I got in 6.5 miles, 1 yesterday and another 6 today. I am running a 10k on Saturday so I will probably do a short run with Boomer on Friday.

2. Millie went to the spa and got to wear a bow for the first time ever. It lasted just long enough for me to snap a picture.

My biggest fear in life is getting kidnaped so naturally I ducked behind the couch like any (almost) 24 year old would. I hid for two more knocks before the guy finally went away. About an hour later I saw the note on the door that I missed my flower delivery. Yep, the guy who came to kidnap me was actually a flower delivery guy.

4. Boomer is getting much better on his runs! I let him set the pace on Tuesday’s run and guess what he decided on…. 8:27. We averaged 8:27! He came back home and took a nap. I’m not sure which is more amazing. I am so excited he likes to run and we are already talking about what hikes we can take him on.

I lied. One more thing…

5. Deployment #1 is still going. And going, and going and going. After getting some not so great news, I was able to talk to my husband several times (woo hoo!). We are back to “black out” meaning nothing in and nothing out – no mail, phone calls, emails – but we are able to send family grams. Basically you get 10 – 50 words messages, but you send it knowing that anyone (and everyone if they deem it embarrassing) can read it. There are very strict guidelines about what you can’t say or your family gram will get rejected. Of course, we named our dog Boomer, a type of submarine, so I am always worried they are going to think I’m talking in code or something.

  1. You’re too funny, I’m actually the same way! I use to hide all the time, now I’m all for answering the door here because it’s usually a delivery of some sort.

  2. Good luck with the marathon training! I think there is too much hype around training plans. Although I’m following one myself, I find I enjoy running MUCH more when I just sort of wing it.

    Also, Millie is adorable. Is she a Yorkie? I have a yorkie who desperately needs a haircut right now.

    Will be keeping your husband in my prayers…

    • I think plans are great when you are first starting out because it helps you figure out what your body can take. Once I get into new distances (over 14 miles) I will probably go back to a plan. For now, I just do what feels right and I am good about pushing myself.

      Millie is a Norwich Terrier, but they are similar to Yorkies. I had been cutting her hair for almost a year now so I figured she deserved a real hair cut.

      Thanks for thinking about my husband. Hopefully I will get a homecoming date soon, but for now he will come home when he comes home 🙂
