Blogging from Rhoads 7

So I am blogging from work. This is a first. Got three days of night shift ahead of me then home for the holidays. How I manged to get a whole week off around Christmas... I don't know. But I am not complaining. So I woke up after 12 hours of quasi-sleep at 3pm today and ran 3 miles without stopping outside in 67 degree weather. Philly is having a heat wave I guess? So the three miles felt really good, I made the mistake of not eating before running and not having eaten anything for 18 hours before... so that was DUMB. But other than that it was so exciting because I hadn't had a run that felt AWESOME since the marathon. I had been craving that feeling for sometime now!

I am definitely going to take it slow. I ran 6 miles all together last week. Ha. That is quite low from 40mpw. But I'm still beat up from 26.2. This week I want to do 3- 3mile runs. As for pushups, I did Day 1 today which was a set of 6, 6, 4, 4, and 6. We'll see if I stick it out. And I'm keeping track of my Bootie Buster points on my side panel. Im at 16.5 now. Its definitely keeping me motivated to get my butt out of bed in the morning! I think I'll settle for middle of the pack!!

Thats all for now. Registering for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler the 1st thing I get home tomorrow! 8am!! I can't wait to be home in Boston and go on some runs with my dad hopefully get a run or two with snow! Happy Holidays everyone!
