Yesterday I ran 3 easy miles although they didn’t feel very easy. My legs were tired, my mind was tired, and it was hot. The scenery was still incredible but I didn’t enjoy the run overall. Today I decided to take a “rest” day and just jog an easy mile. My youngest asked if he could join me. He has jogged with me several times before and I know he can run a mile so I agreed. I was out of floss so I was going to make it a destination run to the little trading post down the road to get floss. We got about 20 feet from the neighborhood and he said, “I need to walk.” I was thinking that he would recover quickly and we would be back to jogging in no time. The second jogging stretch lasted about as long. By the third one, he was flailing his arms and stumbling around dramatically. It was fun. *sarcasm font* We made it to the trading post and I was relieved to be in air conditioning with out him complaining for 5 minutes. It turns out that he wanted to buy everything in the trading post. He didn’t find it significant that I had only brought $5 to buy floss for $3.88. That was also fun. *sarcasm font again* I didn’t even push him to run on the way home. I just wanted to get him back to the beach house without swearing under my breath again because he is very quick to remind me that I’m not supposed to say those words, which adds to the fun. *sarcasm font part 3* After I dropped him off in front of a show at the beach house, I finished my run about an hour after I had intended to start my run. It was really hot. It was a bummer of a run. When I got back, I did get to stretch on the porch and chat with my family though so there was a bit of a silver lining to my whole rest day attempt. In other news, yesterday was the end of my most recent round of Whole30. I don’t plan on taking measurements because I don’t have my original measurements but I do plan on doing another round when we get back. I will try to be more intentional about my saving my measurements in 2 locations for that round. I know I’m not quite where I want to be yet with my weight so that is why I want to do another round. Also, the start of school is stressful for me so I think having a plan for my food consumption will help keep me on track. I’m a stress eater for sure. However, my first order of business between now and the start of my next round will be sharing a bottle of red wine with my sisters!
