A Fragment of Freedom

Well.........This morning I felt really nauseated. I took a Zofran and went to my ACLS class. 

Around noon I started feeling better so after 8 hours of Advanced Coronary Life Support (BLECH!!!!!) I decided I needed to run. 

Just on a whim. I am technically supposed to be on running rest still  but I decided I didn't care I needed to run to clear my head. 

SO I RAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  and got my one tiny fragment of freedom.

So I ran 1.5 miles at 10:20 min/mile. On one hand it makes me feel so sad and pathetic to have to run that short and than slow, trust me all I wanted to do was scream out about  ten   8 min/miles but I HAVE TO BE SMART or I will never heal which means I will never be sane so I MUST BE SMART!!!! 

Well wanna know the good news? No pain so far!  
I'm not going to push it. I'll try to run again in a few days or next week.

I also jumped on the elliptical for 30 min to get my cardio in.

I have 2 pairs of Mizuno Wave Riders and these one's were kinda ugly so I decided to throw some neon laces on them. Well, at least their kinda fun now:)

I really like this quote!!!! NO shame in wanting to take good care of yourself. 

Hey then it was family dinner. Baked chicken, asparagus and baked potatoes. 
I recently read in a parenting magazine that family dinner cures like 90% of your kids problems, like 
*drug and alcohol abuse
*Unprotected sex and STD's
*Blah, blah, on and on

SOOOOOOOOO I AM A H*U*G*E family dinner advocate. Every  night when possible folks and start them young!!!!!

Thank you Wonderful husband for cooking such a lovely balanced meal. Today I am grateful!

Running = freedoms here too, so I totally get that! And family dinners? It's all I've ever known, and I wouldn't have it any other way! I hope you stick with it, you won't regret it!

Agree on the family dinners! We did them until I was out of High school. CONGRATS on the run. Each mile counts towards something. Don't give up & stay smart. You rock!!
