All Kinds of Awesome

From Pig to Powerful
 Remember this post where I explained the ugly side of Endo, but also celebrated hitting a 10 minute mile indoors on the track? Well, that mile was broken up in 2 segments, with a work out in between.

Yesterday I hit a brand new milestone. I proved my 5k time was possible! I hit just over a 9 minute mile! I'm pretty excited about that. Honestly, I was ecstatic with 10 minute miles. To be in the single digits... it just kinda blows my mind. That shaved off about a minute in about a month! I know I can't expect leaps and bounds every month, but that was definately a boost!

I'm trying to nail down some plans for the weekend. So far, all I know is there will be a picnic. I'm pretty excited about it, but I'm keeping those expectations tempered, since My Sailor's schedule...well, let's just say the weather is more predictable.

With that said, I gotta give a shout out to My Sailor. He has offered to help for just about anything. From opening doors to helping carry the smallest things, I appreciate it. It's not easy, with both of us (especially him) on the brink of exhaustion. It's always a comfort to see that, when the going gets tough, my safety net is still here, even when he's not 'here' most of the time.

So that's your little blurb for the day. Good night blogosphere.

  1. I've been so absent from the blogsphere lately that I wanted to say first off- you look GREAT! I almost don't recognize you in your recent pictures! Congratulations on your mile time!
