WEEK 1 Complete!
Week 1 of 2010 is in the books! It was a rough one but a good one!!! Crazy busy and stressful at work, but my goals were met for week 1!!! YEAH!
I haven’t blogged much but I spent a lot of time reading blogs!!
Went to a movie and dinner with my BFF. I haven’t seen her in months and can’t even remember when I last went to a movie!!!
Read a ton of blogs!
Spent time and laughed with my boys!
Down 7 pounds in one week!!!
I got my 11 miles of running in between the rain drops (3 of which I finished Sunday night on the treadmill).
Did some weight training - only some, but I did it!!!
Not bad for the first week!! Today was a day of rest and tomorrow we are on to week 2!!! Hopefully there will be a break in the rain - I have 3 miles scheduled during lunch!!!
Hope everyone had a HAPPY MONDAY!!!

What are your “MUST HAVES” on your runs?
I had a great 4.1 mile run today! No rain and it was actually warm (well warmer that it has been) and no rain!!! 3 miles tomorrow and I will have met my mileage goals for week 1 in 2010!!!!!
About a half mile into my run I realized that I forgot my lip stuff and didn’t put any on before I left my car! I was really bummed! That is my number one “must have” on my runs! My lips get really dry and bug me the entire time if I don’t have anything on them! I kept licking them during my run which makes it worse!! I would run naked as long as I had lip balm! OK, not really but you get my point!!! I couldn’t wait to get back to the car and slather my lips in Burt’s Bee’s Honey Lip Balm. Burt’s Bees is my favorite. It is thick enough that it stays on the entire run and also smooth enough that my lips don’t stick together!
Forgetting my lip balm made me think about other runners and what their must haves are on their runs.
What are your must haves?
Do other runners have them or am I just a crazy planner/creature of habit?
My other “must have” is my Nike+ ipod! I have fun tracking my mileage and setting goals on my Nike+ site so if I don’t have it with me I try to find reasons not to run! My bag with my running clothes and Nike+ are with me in the car every day!!!
Planning ahead leaves me no room for excuses!!
