Happy Mother's Day!

My mom is currently spending time with her mom so we did not get to officially celebrate but we will make up for it when she returns home.

Well, the Master Cleanse lasted one day.  Obviously, I was weak.  Funny, I told one person at work I was doing it.  I forgot I had told her until Wednesday when I ate a doughnut and I was ratted out.  The first day I was doing it, I had the hardest time focusing.  I would like to try it again but maybe without having such a challenging work assignment in front of me.

I did pretty good with my workouts this week though.   I am finally coming to terms with not running another half marathon this summer.  It is just hard to let go, all this conditioning I have built up.  But it is summer...and it is hot.  Do I really want to be running 10 miles in July?  Not particularly.  I ordered the Total Immersion DVD to teach myself to swim freestyle.  I will focus on really cross training this summer with spinning and swimming, and start  running those long runs again in the fall when the weather is cooler.  I have signed up for a couple of trail runs (10Ks) one in San Antonio or Houston.  They are the Chupacubra night runs, where you wear head lights and the trail is marked with glow lights.  That will have to satiate me until the fall.
