Happy Snoopy Dance

I've kind of been a maniac lately. I'm finally back on track as far as healthy eating goes (with a few small exceptions) and I feel like I'm in my comfortable zone again. Like, so comfortable that i've been running my 5K (3.1 miles) in just under 30 minutes now. Really! It's nuts. Usually I like to run it in about 32-33 minutes but in the past couple of weeks I've cut out any walking and just jog through straight for the whole 3.1 miles and I barely squeak in at about 29:54. This is, of course, on a treadmill in a climate controlled gym with no changes in the incline so take it with a small grain of salt, but still! Accomplishment! I've been logging about 5 miles, 5 times a week plus some weight training and a bit of the elliptical. Plus, I had another fantastic massage yesterday on my day "off". Oh, the gluttony.

Juliana is away this weekend for her first Girl Scouts camping trip. (Indoor at a lodge because it's still freaking snowing on and off here in Wisconsin.) With only one child in the house it looks like we're in for a laid back weekend. I almost don't even care that I still have boxes of kitchen cabinets taking up my entire dining room- taunting me because I have no idea when they will be installed.



  1. Woo hoo!! Great job you! So are you going to run a race any time soon? ;)

  2. You know, I'm not really sure. I hadn't thought about it but maybe I should check and see if there are any 5Ks coming up this spring/summer in Milwaukee. We still have so much snow on the ground that it seems pretty far off but I forget that it's almost April. :-) I really have to get better running outside- I don't get why it's so much harder!
