Three Things Thursday

1.  Running ~ On Tuesday {the 27th} I made my triumph return to running after 8+ weeks {57 days} and felt great!  I’m starting back slowly and doing run/walk intervals while I rebuild my stamina and endurance.  I was afraid that I wasn’t going to remember how to do it.  And, thankfully, it went much better than I thought it would.  I had no pain, just some mild soreness, and I’m feeling so elated to be back to pounding the pavement.  I got winded quickly --- I’m fighting a cold, its cold outside and I know I am very out of shape but I’m working on a “plan” and ready to start the new year with a bang!  I ran again today --- and I’m already looking forward to my next run :)

  • Tuesday, 12/27/11:  3.10/48:33 {run/walk of 1:2}
  • Thursday, 12/29/11:  3.29/50:01 {run/walk of 1:2}

2.  Lucy ~ Yesterday was Miss Lucy’s birthday {she’s two years old}!  We spoiled her with several new toys for Christmas and her birthday … we were hoping this big rawhide bone would be her favorite but she is actually a little afraid of it.  We are remaining hopeful that she eventually figure out what to do with it :)

3.  Kindle Fire ~ The husband gifted me a Kindle Fire for Christmas.  I immediately downloaded The Hunger Games Trilogy and began reading it on our way out of town on Christmas afternoon.  I finished the first book the next day; the second book last night; and I’m pretty sure I’ll finish the third book tonight or tomorrow!  Its so good :)

Happy Thursday!
What’s on your mind today?  How were your holidays?
