Progress

I can't believe my Half-Marathon is almost here... it's a week from tomorrow! And silly me, I actually thought I'd be able to start running again 2 days after my surgery. Uh, no. My doctor put the kybosh on that and said I have to wait until next Tuesday. Ugh. But, she did say that I can go "walking at a moderate pace" on Saturday so I will at least do that.

I still think I should be okay for the race. Last weekend I did 10 miles - I am so proud of myself! I can't believe I actually went that far. And I did it much faster than I was expecting. A whole thirty minutes faster!

Fortunately I am recovering well from the surgery and the walking tomorrow will be good for me. Other than that I am planning to relax, drink tea, read, and put my feet up the rest of weekend.

This is what I'm currently reading.

Anyone else read it? Seen the movie? I have the movie recorded on my DVR but I don't want to watch it until I've finished the book. I actually love the book, so far. I like the author's writing style and it is a very intriguing story. I can't wait to see how similar, or different, the movie is. I'm sure there will be a lot of things left out of the movie because the book is actually quite long and a lot of things happen. I'm only a quarter of the way through it but I'm definitely enjoying it.

So I plan to get a little further in my book this weekend. :)

Have a great weekend!!!!!!!!

I LOVED the book. Ended up reading all her books about the Tudors (most were OK, a few were just as good as this one).
