Today I reached another post-injury milestone—I ran three miles! Before my injury, three miles would have seemed like a walk in the park. Today it represented a big achievement. I actually felt really good! Depending on how I feel tomorrow, I may be ambitious and attempt three again!
It’s amazing how much better a good run can make you feel. I know it sounds kind of cheesy, but for me it’s the truth. The hubs is out of town tonight for a business trip, so it was just me and the kids all day. No preschool this week for my older son, so I was anticipating a long and exhausting day (but fun at the same time!).
Running in the morning was just what I needed to get off on the right foot (pun intended). We had gorgeous weather here again today. It felt like summer! The kids enjoyed playing outside in shorts and t-shirts. We had a nice semi-relaxing dinner with friends and then before I knew it, it was bed time.
I relaxed in bed and caught up on all the shows I have DVRed along with a little dark chocolate with coconut. In the words of Coolio, “today was a good day.”
