Hello August. I am looking forward to August and running again. Last Tuesday was my last run...and it feels like it's been forever! I decided to take 2 weeks off from running to rest my shins. I've been doing cross training in the meantime. I am still going to my spin classes during the week and doing the elliptical on the other days. My next run will be this Saturday. I'm going to do my scheduled long run of 12 miles. My coach (a.k.a. my husband) keeps reminding me that I will not lose fitness even though I haven't run for almost 2 weeks, as long as I'm cross training. I'm hoping he's right and that I'll feel strong on my next long run.
We did a lot this weekend with the boys. Yesterday we went to Great Falls. It was a beautiful day. The boys had lots of fun. They met some friends and played ball for awhile.
Saturday we went to Kings Dominion. The boys had a blast getting on the rides and going to the wave pool. Right before we left Mike made sure they both won some bigged stuffed animals...you can't leave the park without getting those.
