This week we hit some record lows for this time of year....again! We had two mornings where the temperature was in the low 20's but the feel like temperature was in the teens! It was cold! But I LOVED it when I was running!
Check out the frozen dew on my mailbox Wednesday morning! That stuff was rock solid ice!
Thursday I went on a field trip with my Hayden! We went to the state's capitol...Montgomery! In fourth grade they learn about Alabama History and get to take this amazing field trip. He was so excited and we had a blast! It was a long and tiring day but I'm so glad I got to experience it with him!
Now it's time for Fitness Friday! I had low mileage (again) this week due to my calf strain injury. Dr. Justin seems to think it's right on the verge of being pain free...but I haven't reached that yet. Because of the cold weather this week I wore this awesome C9 brand jacket that I got from Target. It kept me sooo warm! But it looks like I'm wearing the same outfit in all my pictures lol! I promise I had different tops and bottoms on each day. I just wore the warm jacket as my top layer on the cold days! ;-)

The runs went well this week. The calf doesn't really hurt when I run...it just starts to get tighter and tighter the farther I get into my run. Hopefully that tightness will ease up soon!
My eating was good this week! I'm still staying within the range of my calories and the scale is still staying the same. So I'm happy!
No long run...again...this weekend. But at least I can run some! I'm trying to stay positive! Dr. Justin DOES want me to run one mile in the morning and then one mile in the afternoon one day before I go see him next to test the calf. Wish me luck on that!
Also...I'm sure most of you saw my post on Wednesday about the tough decision I had to make about St. Jude Memphis Half. I'm still sad I'm having to DNS that race but know in my heart it's the right choice. Thanks so very much for all of your kind words about such an emotional decision for me! You guys are amazing and so supportive and I'm so thankful for you!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
