After work I headed over to PB's house to hang with the gang for a while. Since I've been sick I wanted to take it easy and have a relatively early night. BR, Tern, Lego, & I grabbed dinner from Qdoba, ran a few errands for PB's party, then got working on more jello shots. Sample a jello shot, make a batch, repeat. I was bummed to have to leave an miss out on a trip to the D but thankful that I got to get some good sleep.

And my workouts have been non-exsistent since I came down with whatever it is that is attacking my immune system. Which is not good since the Goofy Challenge starts three weeks from Saturday! I'm in total panic mode about that!

Then last night I stopped by my parents house and my Mom was raving over a new flavor of Yoplait yogurt she bought...Pear.

This poor little guy puts up with all kinds of abuse from me. He tolerates it when I put him in his little backpack. Just look at that expression on his face! And then he tolerates it when I have mornings like this morning where I'm just not awake yet and I accidentally dump his food into his water bowl and not the empty food bowl. A soggy breakfast for him and he never complained once!

I think it was last February when I actually had signed up for the Disney Goofy Challenge. For those of you who don't know what that is, it consists of running the Disney half marathon on Saturday, followed by running the Disney Full marathon on Sunday. You get a medal and shirt for each of the two races, plus an additional medal & shirt for doing the two together. I love a challenge and when two of my friends signed up to do it, I just couldn't resist. Out of curiosity I googled "39.3 training" and found this site: http://www.runvie.com/Articles/Disney%20Goofy%20Training%202010.pdf. According to the schedule, I should have ran 11 miles last night. Instead I made myself some dinner and spent the evening on the couch snuggling with Brady and watching the Vampire Diaries. After having just ran 2 marathons, I'm finding it hard to muster up the motivation to start getting more long runs in again. However, I know that if I can get them in, I will be much happier at mile 20 of the marathon.

I've been trying to give my body a rest from running since I ran two marathons in 20 days and I've got another one coming up in less than two months. Last night I decided to hit up the Latin Fusion class at Lifetime Fitness. I was a little unsure at first since I'm no JLo, but I loved it! We did a lot of hip shaking and salsa steps. It was so nice to get a workout without pounding the pavement.
Tonight's workout is a fun run, the Wayne County Lightfest 8K. It's a nice little race with little perks, other than getting to view the holiday light show before it's open to cars. I'm not looking forward to standing around in 45 degree weather waiting for the race to start, but I'm definitely looking forward to the warm food afterwards!
