2 miles and other things.
Last night I tossed and turned and I kept waking up feeling like my neck and shoulders were getting pinched. When I finally got up for the day at 6, my head was pounding. I rubbed some Icy Hot on my shoulders then headed downstairs to hit the Motrin bottle. After I got the kids' lunches made and all of them off to school, I jumped on the elliptical for 30 minutes while I waited for my husband to wake up. He had said he wanted to run together this morning, since we both only needed to do a short, easy run. After he woke up, we walked to the park, then did a little over 2 miles in well under 20 minutes (woo hoo!), then walked home to cool down. When we got home, I got back on the elliptical and did another 15 minutes. I felt like I needed to get more exercise in today, but I don't want to do too much running. Now my headache seems to be gone, so I'm feeling quite a bit better and I can enjoy the peace and quiet of the day...until the kids come home from school. ;)
