Been mulling over this name change thingy. There were some fantastic ideas. Probably the favorite was:
I'm a Runner...you got a F%$#'en problem with that!!...Nancy" from Chad. Hee hee, that just makes me laugh.
By now you are saying, hmmmmm, I've been duped. She's not actually using that. There is no stinking poll. She promised us a poll. Well, actually, many of you said that you know me and are used to me as Non-Runner Nancy but also gave me some great suggestions. Nancy the Great and The Runner Formerly Known as Non-Runner Nancy are also favs. But I started thinking after I wrote the last post, that it really has meaning to me. The book, the life changes, the help my sweet hubby gave me around this project, the fact that it is a journey. And then Jamie said, she liked it because it had meaning to me. That spoke to me. :)
I hope you guys will understand, there is meaning in this, it is a journey and more than just about running. Some day, I may cross out the NON, but for now, THIS IS WHERE I AM. I don't mind the ribbing. :D
For being great sports with creative ideas and helpful hints, for making me laugh, for gently ribbing and also understanding that there is meaning, these are why I just love you guys. I've decided that since Chad's was my favorite and Jamie's gave me the nudge, I'm sending you both something. Hmmm, Starbuck's or halloween candy, you can let me know with your addresses at firstname.lastname@example.org It will be a few days since I am out of town.
I ran recovery yesterday(2.81miles) and today (3.05miles). OOOUUCHIE. Not much energy and the tops of my feet hurt. I'm thinking either I didn't get my shoes off soon enough after the race or they are aggravated for some other reason, like, maybe, all day in dress shoes sitting in stinking meetings? No, they are not even cute heels.
I'm also going to start logging my PT exercises to see the progress and keep me honest. This is everything, but I will probably just log planks and pushups to see improvement.
- Plank - 30 count (goal - 2 minutes)
- L and R side plank - 15 count (goal - 1 minute)
- Girlie Pushups - 15 (goal 50)
- One leg balance while shaking head - 10 count (goal - longer with more body movements, eyes closed)
- L and R lunges @ straight, 45, 90, and 135 degrees - 5 reps
- Ball between leg squats - 10
- Lots of hip, leg, foot and toe stretches.
