Since I haven’t posted all week, I thought participating in this month’s Ultimate Coffee Date was a perfect way to give you a bit of a life update!
This post is a part of the oh-so-fun link-up that is brought to you by Deborah of Confessions of a Mother Runner and Coco of Got2Run4Me. Be sure to check out their websites and of course today’s virtual Ultimate Coffee Date posts!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you… it’s been a long week! After running Space Coast Half Marathon on Sunday (recap coming soon!), I was pretty exhausted. My thyroid wasn’t happy with me, and I knew it. I guess doing a marathon and then a half 3 weeks later can be tiring! Honestly, I’ve done it before (in 2015), but I think my thyroid wasn’t as bad a couple of years ago, because I don’t recall being this tired after. But, I’m feeling better since yesterday, so I think some extra rest is just what my body needs the rest of the year. 🙂
If we were having coffee, I would tell you… my foot seems to be doing better. I didn’t post about it here on the blog, but the last 5ish miles of Sunday’s half had my right foot/calf tight and hurting. This is not the foot with the PF, so I think I may have altered my running gait somehow during that run. I also wore PF sleeves on both feet, which may not have been the best idea. Guess I should have reconsidered that plan.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you… I’m working on myself, getting back on the weight loss journey. It’s been a struggle for me this year with all that’s been going on, so I’ve got about 8lbs I want to lose in the coming months. For me, it’s all about my nutrition, what I’m eating. So, I’m trying to get back to what I know works. That’s old-fashioned calorie-counting and logging all of my food every day.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you… I haven’t been feeling too festive for the holidays, so I’m hoping to change that this weekend. I’m going to watch some holiday movies with family and friends, and maybe check out some lights in local neighborhoods. Since December just began, it’s the perfect time to get into the Christmas spirit!
