Yesterday got away from me as we spent some time visiting friends and family - and then I finish a total brain candy book which used up the rest of the day. It was hot and humid so a run wasn't all that appealing anyway. Usually it is July before we get the 90° at 9 PM kind of weather. Ugh. So I decided I would go this morning before the kids got up. Staying up to read the next brain candy book made getting up a little less fun. But I knew it would be better than waiting for the sun to convince me otherwise.
I hit the pavement about 7:15 and, thanks to some rain last night, it was 66° (although humid). I barely got down the sidewalk by our house and I had to turn around. I had worn the black shorts my sister got me last summer for my birthday once over the weekend, but apparently not while active. As I jogged to the back of our property, they inched their way down and nearly fell off! Oops - I knew they were too big, but I thought there was enough elastic to hold on to my hips. So I backtracked and did a quick change to my tri shorts. Note to self - need smaller shorts. I wore capris, tights and track pants all winter that were close to the same size, but for the last several months I have been relying on drawstrings in them to keep them on. Oops - a hazard of losing weight I suppose, but I need to get that fixed soon as my tri shorts are the only shorts I have to wear now.
So back out the door and down the sidewalk I went. I had loaded some new music as I was starting to be annoyed with the predictability of my playlist. I still dislike running for the most part so it helps to have the distraction. All told, I covered a smidge over 3 miles. It took about 40-45 min with the shorts change. But it is nice to have it over with.
Tonight will be full with two extra boys (nephews) coming to spend the night with my son for a belated birthday get together. We didn't have enough room to include them in his "friend" get together the Saturday before. I'm sure there won't be as much sleeping as I'd like, but they are good kids and have a lot of fun together. They are basically the same age (one 2 mo older and one 7 mo younger than mine). They will be burning up the Wii playing video games or watching a movie on Netflix. The hubbie is going to make ham steak for dinner per the boy's request. I guess I'll figure out side dishes today. Better get some work done too. I'm behind on a few things.
