UnMap My Run

On a sad note, my daughter went back to school today.  It was so great having her with us this week, but I know she's doing what she is meant to do; so it's bittersweet. 

After she left, I took my youngest to the natatorium.  Luckily for us, the warm-up pool was closed due to filtration problems.  This meant that we had no choice but to swim in the 8'-16' pool.  It's usually only for lap swimmers and the diving boards.  She is quite the little swimmer, and as for me - I got to tread water for the better part of the hour and a half that we were there.  We also swam about four laps, slowly since I was following her, but four nonetheless.  Four for her is awesome, too!  I was impressed!

At church today, her topic was courage.  So before we left, she tackled the high dive!  No hesitation, just climbed up the ladder, walked down the plank, and jumped right in!  Then she encouraged another little girl who was more apprehensive about jumping.  She kept shouting, "be brave!"  So cute, and I was so proud!

We got home, and I started dinner; then I took off for a run.  I mixed it up by starting on the trail and then going through the neighborhood.  Somehow the GPS on the iMapMyRun app was way off!  I hate it when it does that!!  >=(  It had me going through neighbor's yards and buildings!  But I mapped it on the computer when I got home, and it ended up being a 1.6 mile course.  Disappointing because I thought it would be more.  BUT the exciting news is that my time was 23.53 minutes!  Which is 4.08 mph and about 5 minutes faster than my last route that was about the same distance!!  4.08 mph!!!  For 23 minutes!!!  And my legs didn't even hurt! =D

Can you tell I'm excited!?!?

I'm excited! 

Treading water and running.  Not too bad for a Sunday workout.  Alas, spring break is over, and it's back to work tomorrow.  It sure was a good one.
