Back to Running!

Sorry I was MIA there for several days. Choosing not to count calories and not running leaves me with very little to talk about. Today I get to go running though!! Yea!! I'm excited. I've missed getting in that exercise every day. I agree with Sara that I need to be doing more cross-training but running is easy for me to plan on doing. When I get back from vacation and start training for my half-marathon, I'll have to incorporate cross-training and strength workouts.

My 4th of July was good. We had planned on coming into DC to watch the fireworks but it was raining/storming so we decided we'd rather stay home where it was nice and dry. We could see part of the fireworks from our balcony anyways. I'm a little ADD when it comes to fireworks...I like the first 5 minutes but then I get bored.

We did find out that Stephen's aunt and her family will be leaving the cabin a week before we leave so we'll have some time on vacation where there aren't 10 people there. Stephen and I will have the cabin to ourselves for 3 days and then his dad will be there with us for the remaining 4 days. That makes me feel so much better about our vacation.

And have I mentioned lately how excited I am to get some alone time starting next Thursday?? I'm so ready for Stephen to leave! That sounds like I don't like him at all. I was just thinking this weekend how much fun the two of us have hanging out and doing our things. But I'm ready for some Marissa time. Stephen's 14 year old brother comes in on Friday and we'll head to the beach for a few days and do some DC sightseeing and then they'll head to Canada and I'll be by myself. I'm sure I'll enjoy the first couple of days and then I'll start missing Stephen like crazy.

hahaha, don't feel bad about wanting alone time! My DBF is in the Navy so often goes away for weeks at a time...and I'm always looking forward to the first few days where I can organize the house the way I want, I can eat what Mr. Pickypants won't, and watch what I want on TV. :)

Yup, I crave alone time too, nothing to feel bad about!

Your vacation to the cabin sounds like so much fun too!

It's good to miss people sometimes! I have every single Saturday morning to myself. Well, I usually spend it with my mom, but it does make me appreciate my husband when I finally see him again!

Alone time is wonderful sometimes. Enjoy it!!!!

It will be nice for you to have some time to yourselves at the cabin though. ;)

*laughs* I thought I was the only one who got bored so easily! It's amazing how easily I get bored, drives Danny nuts!!!

You shouldn't feel bad for wanting some time alone!!! If Danny goes away for a week, I miss him the first night, then I am comfortable and enjoying time alone, and by the time he gets home I am SOOOOO happy to see him...I think you deserve it, and it will just be THAT much better when he gets back!!!

Your need for alone time is totally justified and I am sure you're right and will miss him. Hopefully, it'll mean some fun stories from you both when he returns. I like the mini 2-3 day breaks from my BF so that you have "new news".

Good luck with your return to running.
