|It is missing the thing to tell me how far I went!|
Then after the big kids went to school and the little one was off to preschool, I met my friend at the gym where we ran 3 miles, and then I hopped in the pool and swam a mile. I feel fabulous! It just feels nice to see progress. When I started my tri-training in January, the swimming really had me nervous. The first time I went I only swam 2 lengths of the pool before I needed to stop and recover for a bit! Now I'm swimming a mile in 45 minutes without stopping at all! I often feel like I'm surrounded by people doing incredible things and then there is just me--no amazing back story, no grand life achievements--just doing a lot of laundry and cooking and cleaning and working out. But I need to recognize that at least I am getting better at what I do!
We are having beautiful weather and it makes me want to spend all my time outside! Forget the laundry and cooking and cleaning! Lincoln and I spent the afternoon at the park. We got to walk along our street that is lined with these trees that smell heavenly.
I don't know what they are, but every year at this time I want to plant them in my yard! I think I was a little high by the time we got to the park--these things smell incredible!
The little birds think so too!
Happy, happy spring!!!
What about you?? Any small (or big) milestones you have recently attained?
