1. I have been able to run ever day this week. Monday evening I pushed Gus in the stroller for a HARD 3 miles at a steady 9 minute pace. It was hilly and hot but it felt so good. Tuesday I was feeling depressed from a long day with little sleep the night before…I got outside with the stroller in the evening and ran 2 miles. I felt like a big giant SLUG. I was hoping the run would make me feel lighter but it just didn’t so I went home after 2 miles. In retrospect I probably should have just taken that as a rest day but I needed the air and the time alone. Yesterday morning I ran 4 miles on the treadmill while the baby slept in his swing and the big kids played. My treadmill is in the play room so we were all hanging together while I ran. I love when it all comes together like that – sleeping baby, happily playing kids and running momma all in one room together.
2. The kids are on spring break this week. Funny how this is not much of a “break” for me. I’m enjoying the lazy mornings but missing the routine. Must think of strategy for summer!! School is OUT in a little more than a month. Yikes.
3. I signed up for the VA Beach Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon on September 4th. This was my first ever half two years ago and I’m excited to run it again. This Saturday I plan to run another 10-12 miles for my long run. Anybody want to join me??
