I have a few things I wanted to share with you today.
1. Our former house is officially for sale today. The ad will be out in today's paper. I am glad and sad all at once. It was our first home and I really liked that house, but it became too small for us. Now, we are renting it, and that is kinda
2. I got a new Garmin Forerunner 405 and it arrived in the mail yesterday. (Just a queer side note--the box was found inside my closed garage. I thought my hubby had placed it there after finding it on the deck, but no. He did not. How in the world the box ended up INSIDE our garage in our locked house, I do not know. I can only hope that the garage door didn't close all the way when I was leaving in the morning and the delivery guy just placed it there. Otherwise--mystery.) Anyhoo--new Garmin = happy me! My other bought-used-off-ebay-garmin was telling me incorrect milage so that was getting irritating. Here is a generic pic of my pretty (green!) new Garmin.
3. I have my first black toenail from running. Apparantly, my mutant third toe rubs against my sneaker on my longer runs (5 miles is my longest). I guess because it is freakishly longer than all my other toes? Maybe I need larger sneakers if I decide that I want to do longer runs.
4. I feeling a little bit lost and let down now that my race is over with. That sprint tri was my goal for the past 9 months and it's a little weird not having a specific goal in mind with regards to my exercise. I guess I need to find another goal/race to set my sights on. I don't think I'm ready to sign up (this year) for a olympic tri. I could finish for sure, but mentally, it would be a lot of stress to get ready for in just 3 months. I do have a husband and kids that would like to do other things than follow me around doing races. So, I should find one more sprint tri to do in the fall and maybe a couple of short road races here and there.
Does anyone else have that lost feeling after reaching a goal? Do you need to have a specific goal in order to exercise effectively? Please share. Oh--and I know a great house in Boothbay if anyone needs a second home.....
