Tonight was supposed to be a run night but since rain was in the forecast, my sister and I decided to run last night. Monday night I was able to run a mile and last night I ran a mile and a half. So I’m building my distance back up. I also made sure that I hydrated yesterday so that I didn’t have a repeat of Monday. Take it from me, it is extremely important to be well-hydrated before you run, especially in warmer weather. I had a headache that lasted almost 24 hours and ended up taking 2 doses of a migraine relief medication before it finally went away.
This weekend is Memorial Day, which is what most people consider to be the official kick-off to Summer. Most kids are already out of school or will be in the next couple of days, vacations are being planned, and Summer reading lists are hanging on refrigerators. Maybe because a new season is starting, I have been thinking about setting a weight-loss goal. I’ve had some numbers in my mind but haven’t put a date to anything. Now I’ve set a goal to lose 30 pounds by Labor Day. That means I need to be consistent with my running and also add in a few days of other exercise, such as Yoga/Pilates or bicycling. I’m not sure when I’ll ride my bike again after my crash last week. My husband may be looking into getting me some training wheels before I’m allowed to ride again. Guess I’d better stick to running.
