I don't feel good...

It's crazy. I woke up this morning at 6 when little Mr. Man had to go potty. I felt fine. I even debated if I should go run, but I decided to sleep in. 30 minutes later I wake up for good and it feels like I was hit by a train. You know the aches and chills  you get when you have a fever? Yeah, I had those really bad. So, needless to say I didn't get in my 4 miles plus sprints today. Even though I had a couple hours during the day that I felt like I could muster up enough energy to run, I thought It would be better to rest. I just really hope that I feel better tomorrow. A 24 hour bug would be nice...well, not nice as in I like having them, but nice as in I don't want it to go longer.

So, in some happier news. Miss Ma'am has been inspired by my running. She wanted to run on the treadmill. She did .5 miles in 7 minutes. :) She was so proud to be running like mommy.
Then she wanted to do push ups. She wanted to do 5 cause she was 5.

Then she wanted to do sit ups. Again, she wanted to do 5 cause she is 5.

I love my girl. She's so excited to exercise like mommy and she keeps asking if she can run a race too. There's a cute little Cookie Chaser race for Girl Scout Cookies that I thought she would have fun with.

Anyway, at least one of us got some exercise today. :)

I love the bond that has been made between my eldest son and I through exercise. He ran a 50yrd race last Thanksgiving and I saw his confidence soar when he received his finisher medal. :)

I am training with my kids for a 5K. They love to run too. My five year old thinks it is great that he can beat his "runner mom" - but in a 50 yard dash he sure can! But he poops out after a minute or so! :)

Hope you feel better. I'm whining this morning as a pain in my ankle kept me from my scheduled run!

Happy running!

Our kids need to get together. Mine do the same thing!

Hope you feel better! I'm slowly recovering, but am so over it already!

My boys try to copy and keep up with me too. Now that one is 9 1/2, it is likely that he will in the next few years.

Keep modeling for the kids. It is so important for them.
