Muuuust resist…

…the urge to run.

Was planning to hit Ride this morning before going on auntie duty for the day with my sis but alas, sleep took priority.

So – cardio day has been TBD so far.

That is, until I started to think…hmmm. Maybe I can fit in a run tonight, it’s a gorgeous – albeit brisk – fall day. Perfect for a run.

Oh wait.

That’s right – I’m on self-imposed hiatus from running, aren’t I?

Details, schmetails, right?


I was thisclose to giving in to the urge to run tonight but then my conscience got the best of me.

Well – that’s not entirely true either. This blog got to me! I knew that if I admitted I ran today, a couple of you bloggy friends would probably yell at me (you KNOW who you are!) so alas, no run tonight.

Instead? I’m doing something I haven’t done in eons: hitting the elliptical machine. At least it’s not the dreadmill but it’s kinda close. I am thinking it’ll at least give me a good cardio burn, or at least feel close enough to the cardio burn I’d get from running, y’know…without actually running. That’s the hope anyway. Plus – I’m supposed to be cross-training this week so this will be good for active recovery for the bum knee.

At least that’s what I’m telling myself, anyway. 😉


#TheLittleThings for today? The extra special cuddle time with my niece today. I’m telling you, there is nothing quite like the feeling of her snuggling up under my chin, breathing calmly and cooing away as she drifts off to sleep. She gave me big smiles today too (it was probably gas but whatever, I call it auntie lovies!) which is even more cause to give thanks. She is a precious little peanut, love her so much!
