I have experienced something similar. It's sad on top of sad. Sorry, mama.
JenLove, we *must* meet up north this fall. (I know it's not up north to you
) My mom and I biked about 20 miles today while dad, dh and the kids fished off the pontoon boat. They just have a collection of old, crummy bikes, but it didn't matter, wasn't for speed, and was a gorgeous day. The legs felt great biking, and I could have stayed another day for sure, but the farm needed us back. And, truly, I was happy to be back once I was here. The chickens and sheep were happy to see me (and the cold water I brought), and the emus enjoyed their bath.
I'm starting to think the PT thing will be more stepping stone than done deal. I told dh today that if he gets his promotion, I'll quit the next day. So I guess we'll see what happens.
I've been having trouble lately with the incessant, loud ticking of my biological clock.
I think I am going to run tomorrow morning. One last morning run before Ramadan fasting begins. A good thing to do.
What I wear to run...like others have mentioned, I also have chafing issues, so I need to wear lycra, and I prefer pants. I wear a lot of capri length pants, though my two favorites are shot, and I have been running almost only on the TM, so I have recently been wearing a running skirt with just 4" shorts under (and bodyglide
). I wear short-sleeve tech shirts in summer because my arms are just as chafe-y as my thighs, and like JenLove, in winter, it's all about layers, with a poly or tech layer as a base, and extra socks.
: I have returned home with ice on my eyelashes in past years. Might get back to that this year, as part of the complex "combat SAD" plan I may need to work out.
