I was planning on running today, but my body told me that a recovery day was in the plans instead and I actually listened. Sometimes that is the hardest thing to do. Listen to your body. You will be glad you did later. My hamstrings were feeling a little tight this morning, so I knew a run was not a good idea today. I decided to use today was a recovery day and let my body rest.

I did a 20 minute Les Mills Pump –  Flow workout and then did 10 minutes of foam rolling.


Flow is a lot of stretching and yoga moves. It felt great!


The foam rolling, on the other hand, did not! But, it is totally worth it the next day!

These were emailed to us last night!


2048We missed the tent they were at after the marathon, so Rob emailed them to see if we could get a copy of them mailed to us. We are happy they were willing to do that for us!

It is official! We are intercontinental runners!

Speaking of running, I sent my picture to Women’s Running for their run brag gallery and I finally made it into it!


I love my Women’s Running magazine! I read it from cover to cover. I am currently reading the November/December issue now. It usually doesn’t take me this long (I got it in the mail last Tuesday) to read it, but I have been busy. I don’t want to read through it too fast though because then it is torture waiting for the next issue!

As the title promised, today’s blog is short and sweet! FYI…don’t drink a cup of coffee at 6:00 pm because it makes it very difficult to sleep. I don’t know what time I finally fell asleep last night/this morning, but it was not fun getting up at 6:45 this morning.

Now it is time for some The Big Bang Theory and a snack before bed! I am tired and have to be up early for my first full day of subbing tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!
