Three Things Thursday Sicky Style

Ugh.....the cold/flu/yuckiness that all my students have been dragging around me the past few weeks seems to have stuck. Wah! I am not a good sick person....cue the whining! I'm going to CVS today to stock up on anything that will make this go away fast! I am dizzy, tired, and just blah! I so do not want to get sick for this weekend....I have been looking forward to it for a while now....swimming lessons with Em(completely forgot until today that that means I will have to sport a bathing suit!), date night with the hubs, Elmo Live, and Marathon Monday. Think positive thoughts....think positive thoughts!

Here are my random three things this Thursday!
1. I sometimes discpline I alone in this?? My goal this week was to not miss a workout. Well Tuesday night I missed a run because the night just got away from me. So last night I dragged my butt to the gym and complete 12 miles.....7 of a tempo run....recover....then 5 from the workout I missed. That should teach me not to miss a workout! Aside from the fact that I felt feverish at times, it was a good run! Which leads me to my next point.....

2. I can't leave my Sacounys!!!! Last weekend we went to a running store to get me some new shoes. The guy there said that my ankles are turning in and thus needed more stability. He put me in a pair of Mizuno shoes and said I could return them after 50 miles. Well within the time that I have been using them I have hurt my back, had sore knees, and heavy legs. Coincidence....I think not! I didn't want to give up on the new shoes but after running 12 in my good old Sacounys, I will be returning the new pair. Let my ankles turn in a bit....I can't leave my old friend!

3. I'm trying to assemble a cute outfit for my upcoming 10k the day before Easter. I have run a 10k since 2006 so I am hoping for a big pr but am hesitant to put a time out there since there are two major hills that are 6/10 of a mile each. Considering that I am focusing my energy on an outfit. I am hoping the weather is nice so I can sport a skirt without long tights. My friends and I are looking for a cute shirt with peeps on it.....any suggestions? I am going to try to kick butt but a girl has to look cute while doing it!! :-)

Have a great Thursday!!! One more wake-up until vacation!!! Those of you who are Boston bound....have safe travels!


  1. Feel better! Getting sick with a big weekend ahead is no fun.

    On the shoes--go with what works!

  2. It's hard to leave an old friend "who" shared with us many miles. For this reason when I find a pair of shoes that fit, I immediately buy another pair of them. At the moment Adidas Gel Cumulus 12.

  3. get
    soon -- like now!

    And I'm with ya, gotta love Saucony!

  4. agreed the running store doesn't always know best :)

  5. So sorry to hear you are sick! A new cute running outfit will make you feel much better:)

  6. I hate being sick too, we are like that this week here.

    I can't wait to see your peeps shirt! Good luck finding one that is cute. I hope you find something awesome.

  7. All of my kiddos at school have been out with flu, strep and stomach bug. I'm hoping I can stay away from it. Hope you feel better soon!
    I 100% agree with you about Riggins. NO.SHIRTS.ALLOWED.

  8. My first was Saucony and then tried Mizunos and I went straight back to my Sauconys. I LOVE them! Just got my 3rd pair :)
