Well, I don't have much to say today other than yesterday morning I was feeling 10 feet tall and bulletproof (I am a bit stubborn) and I decided to run my longest distance to date, 4.88 miles.  I did it in 58 minutes for a pace of 11:53, which I am VERY proud of because I ran it straight, no walking, great breathing and pace control.  Just got tired legs but, that is why I do strength training with weights and continue running - to build those leg muscles.  Gotta build that endurance!

However, I figured I would pay for it later and low and behold.....I surely did.  And it was FIERCE!  I was hurting so bad from my Fibro that I was in tears.  I took a muscle relaxer (which doesn't help my pain) and it relaxed me to a point that I was loopy enough to not pay so much attention to the pain and lost the frustration of it.  When I do take those pills, I am not able to function normally though so my speech was slurred, balance was off, etc.  I fell asleep on the couch and when I woke up to go to my bed, I took a route that I wouldn't normally take and well.....ran nose first into the wall.  I am so glad that I didn't wake up with 2 black eyes this morning.

Today I am feeling great and moving around the house like "a chicken with it's head cut off" (as my Grandmother would always say) trying to get ready for our MC weekend Anniversary Party.  Someday I will tell you about our MC.  All in due time, I have so much about myself and the happenings in my life that this would be a novel if I shared it all in one post.

So, I have another busy day ahead of me and NO.....I won't be running today although, it is VERY HARD for me to not do it.  You see, I am addicted to running.  I have run 5 days in a row and it physically hurts me not to run.  But, I am bringing my gear with me just in case I find a nice place to run at our resort!  LOL

Before I get to my Agenda, I just have to share my layouts for today!

This one uses Captivated Visions newest release - Ianthne The Bundle and Fiddle-Dee-Dee's newest template set Fuss Free:  Funky Paper Play 5

This uses Designs by Kat's newest - Proud Mama and a new set of templates from Nanie's Designs - Sassy Starters Inspired by Paper Vol 4.  Of course, font is my new favorite, Niki by Stolen Moments!

Here is what is up for today:

Shave necessary body parts - done!
Pluck eyebrows - done!
Sew Lyssa's quilt backing -done!
Baste Lyssa's quilt - done!
Go to store - done!
Send off questionnaires to my 6 "adopted" Airman - done!
Finish printing LYM book - done!  AND in binder!
Reschedule DD #3's doctor appt - done!
Get puppies ready for outside doggy weekend :( - done!
Upload some layouts to galleries - done!

Whew!  Another busy day!  But, I think I can accomplish it all without the running making my fibro flare up worse than normal.  We'll see how I do!  I will try and update at the end of the day before I head out at 7 pm for our trip.

I hope you all have a blessed weekend!
