OK after 5K

I participated in the Kaiser Permanente Corporate Challenge 5K Run/Walk at Turner Field last night. For not really training, I made pretty good time walking it in about 52 minutes - about 16.7 minutes per mile. That's better than average for me, so I'm happy. Woke up this morning with a slight headache, probably need more water, but otherwise feeling fine. Tomorrow will be the real teller - I am usually more sore on the second day, if there is soreness to be had.

Not much going on this week. We got Wii Fit last weekend, so that helped me "train" for the 5K this past week (haha). But truly, it's been a lot of fun and I'm really enjoying the exercises on it. I'm up to my ears in Homecoming planning for the GTBAA, helping with planning a nWW meeting in a week and a half, and trying to study! On top of that, gas shortages around here have put driving anywhere at a premium, so for the most part we've been trying to limit our trips and consolidate errands wherever possible. Thank goodness DH and I are able to carpool!

Yay Wii Fit! I love the downhill skiing (I'm terrible at it) and the ski jumping (I'm good at it)! :o)

Downhill skiing IS really tough - just when you think you've cleared a gate, you turn to soon in order to make the next one and miss that gate and then overcorrect and miss the next... and the next... [sigh] I still like it, though.

Speaking of hard wii mini-games, I had a record cow-toss the other day. I think it was nearly 100 feet! The cow wasn't too happy. :D

Rabbids Rule!
