I got two letters from Army Son today. It was so great! He sounds so positive and upbeat. It just made my day. In my last letter to him, I included photographs of his favorite tv shows that he is missing.
One of which is Survivor.
He wrote in one of the letters, "I am Survivor ready. Well, at least by the time I get done I will be!" I knew that I had to kick it into high gear if I am going to be able to handle HIS workout. He has already sent me a list of things he has to do for exercise.
Soon I may lose my title as the Fittest Family Member!
I might be more proud of him for taking over my reign than I would be upset for having lost it!
But the challenge he threw down did cause me to run a crazy 15 miles on the treadmill. I have a scheduled outside long run on Sunday but I still pounded out 15 on the treadmill today. Which took me to 60 miles for the week. Can we say too competitive? I think I might be regretting that when I am 10 miles from the house tomorrow and wanting a short cut home that does not exist!
You are amazing in your workouts!! Thats good news that your son is in good spirits and I love that you two have a bit of competition going. Sounds fun! I look forward to those days with my boys :)ReplyDelete

Oh, I'm am so glad the letters came and your son is sounding well! I know that is a huge lift for you!!! I ran 19 on the treadmill yesterday and my hips are killing me. NO more long treadmill runs for me...but there was some chick there that ran 35 miles and looked incredible at mile 35. I thought about you and all your treadmill miles and have to say I admire you so much for all your dedication!! Hope your long run goes well. xoReplyDelete
