So, we had a great weekend at the Lake.
But it didn’t go how I planned.
On the way up to the Lake, Scott asked me what I wanted to do that weekend.
My answer: “run 11 miles.”
Am I training for anything?
Nope, not really.
I am thinking about signing up for a fall half marathon – Des Moines again or maybe Mankato. . . but I haven’t yet.
I also usually like to do the 14 mile run around the Lake on Labor Day weekend, but do I have to? Nope.
So, when my plans for a Saturday morning run got derailed by my sister needing help moving out of her place. . . oh well. She needed help, and I was going to help her –> way more important than running.
And when we woke up on Sunday morning to cold, rainy and wind. Did I drag myself out for a miserable 11 miles?
I curled up in bed and read my book.
Ate brownies (more than I care to mention) to celebrate my Mom’s birthday.
Stocked up on Lukie giggles and family time.
And went for a long boat ride with Scott and Abby.
So, I treated myself by not beating myself up over not getting my long run in. . . . something that is hard to do sometimes, right?
But, I look back on my weekend and I don’t think I would have it any other way.
And then I dragged Scott out for a 4 mile loop through the corn fields before heading home today.
And yes that is my husband running with a sucker. Luke gave him one before we left the house. . .
It’s all about balance, right? Living life and not looking back.
Long run, I’ll get you next weekend. But until then, I’m not going to stress about it.
How about you? Anything you missed or skipped lately?
Linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday.
