I am beat! I had so much fun during the graduation and then the trip to Tennessee but I am definitely in need of some down time:p We got up super early on Sunday and drove to see my family where we spent the day just catching up with everyone. We ate breakfast at my sister Autumn's house and then had a grillout during the evening at Angel's place (another sister)...Robert and I, of course, had to be on the computer at about 4:30 because the auction for his mustang was ending at 5:00...Gosh, those were some intense minutes but we won the car!!! There was one bidder that waited until the last five seconds to place his final bid, however it was 450.00 shy of what our max was, so the clock ran out and we are now proud owners of a 1967 mustang fastback! I will post pictures as soon as we get the car; Gotta get some of Roberts (little boy who got his dream) smile in there too:p
On another note, I took my running outside yesterday on a one mile track back home. I went with my sister Mary and Robert and I was rather disappointed that I wasn't able to run my two miles:( Infact I only ran .75 miles so not even one! I know I could have gone further but Mary is new at this running thing too so we had to stop twice in that .75 miles and so I just kinda got lazy I guess...Maybe thats not the right word for it...I guess I just couldn't get focused with having to stop? Yeah, we'll go with that:p It was good though, because it made me see were I need to improve. I definitely was running faster and harder out there which made it rough to finish. Next time I need to focus more on slowing it down and keeping my breathing steady. It also really clearified that I need to work harder on getting my incline up higher so the road doesn't fatigue me as badly. I've got a lot of studying to do:p Robert was noticing how hard I am on my knees when I run because I come straight down on my heel. He says the impact is going straight up my leg and into my knees...If I keep that up he says I should be expecting shin splints knocking down my door any day:p Do any of you runners have ideas to help me take some of the impact off my knees?
So I am off to the gym to try harder and improve:p This whole outside experience has only made me that much more determined! Hope you all had a great tuesday!
