After resting yesterday, today I am back to my half-marathon training. I walked 4 miles today. It took me a little over an hour, so that is a pretty good pace. The coaches said today that they want us to go no more than 18 minutes a mile, and I was definitely above that. One thing I like about this training is that it is getting me up and out of the house early. My plan was to stop by the jewelry store afterward to pick up a necklace that was getting fixed and even though I chatted a bit and took my time after finishing, when I got to the shopping center everything was still closed. I just had to wait about 10 minutes for things to open, so it wasn't that bad.

We finally took down our outdoor Christmas lights today. I know, I know, this was way late. But we haven't been turning them on and previously took down everything we could without a ladder. Today was just the row of icicle lights along the gutter and upstairs window. It was the first weekend when it was above 15 degrees and not raining, so that was our excuse!

I was talking with DH about his experience for the IUI yesterday. It was funny b/c he complained more about the magazines in the general waiting room than in his special room. I guess they updated the offerings in the collection room. But all the magazines in the general waiting room were female-oriented so he wished they had a sports magazine or something to pass the time. I can see his point, but was also like, "look, I have to scrounge around for the one magazine that is not pregnancy or baby oriented, so you my options aren't much better."


  1. That is neat that you are training for a 1/2 marathon. It sounds like you had a great walk today - I should take your lead and go workout in a little bit. Hope you have a great evening!

  2. Okay, so you're making me feel super lazy. Exercise is not my friend! Lol!

    We took our Xmas stuff down last week and packed everything in boxes, but we didn't actaully put the boxes away in storage until today. I feel so relieved that it's completely done, now.

    Good luck with your 2WW!!! Happy ICLW!

  3. Great job on walking.
    I usually bring my own magazine or puzzle book. I got tired of looking at babies and pregnant moms.
    I hope the IUI works and you are on your way to a BFP.

  4. Good luck with the marathon training!

  5. Very cool that you're training for a half-marathon. I'm a big fan of that kind of thing. And, it can be a welcome distraction to all the IF stuff. Good luck with this cycle.
