a sad day - april 19th - i put georgia, my 14 yr. old lab, to sleep today and i am grieving. i am lacking so much sleep since i stayed by her side all night...the hours went by so slowly, but i'm glad i had that time with her. by the afternoon, when my eyes were almost so puffy that I couldn't see out of them, I felt i just needed to get out of the house. i went to swim - i felt horrible. 2000 yards of garbage. tried a set, but wasn't going anywhere. this feeling will pass, but for now, I just need to work through it. :(
tuesday. the morning was tough - it was part of the routine. saying hello, taking her out, feeding her. and i wasn't able to get a good night's sleep so up at 6am anyway. By 8am, I felt a little stronger so I told the kids I was going to go for a quick run. It felt good to get outside and breathe the air, but there were definitely moments when i was heaving from sadness...it passed quickly enough. 4.5 miles in 39.08 minutes and then cooled down with our walk through the woods.
day 3 - back on the CF wagon today. I managed to escape from the house for an hour and had a 5K row and 12 x 100M (between .7 and .8) runs going every minute. 5K time was 21:47...I believe it is a bit slower than my best- couldn't seem to locate the date I last did it. I was a bit worried about the shoulder, but it seemed okay. The runs were good although I do feel pain in my right foot still- held 7:03 minute mile pace. I am tired. But it too, shall pass I hope.
