Wow! Is it really Friday already?! Seriously, this week has flown. I’m not entirely sure how it’s Friday already.
We’ve had a crazy week. Workouts were pretty good.
Sunday – I actually finished my long run early. Yeah, that’s right, crazy but I got my butt up early. I’m not talking “get up with the sun” early, but I am talking “get up before the kids get up early”. It was a great 8 mile run. I’ve been trying to pick up the pace a little and felt like I did that. With my run done, S and I were able to enjoy a Rams game together…kidless.
Monday – Rest day. My right knee was a little tender so the kids and I took the opportunity to go check out the local Y. I have wanted to join for a long time but I just couldn’t imagine paying $80 a month but my desire for a pool and more activities for the kids finally got the best of me. So we signed up…at this point I’m carrying two gym memberships!! Crazy?! Yes, but I seem to justify it in my mind somehow.
Tuesday – I was crowned mother of the year. Ok, not really. MiniE was pretty restless Monday night but nothing to out of the ordinary. Finally, at around 3, I went to check on her only to find she had gotten sick. Guilt quickly got the best of me. Ugh! So we stayed home together Tuesday, snuggled, she slept, as you’ll see in my IG pictures, and I even snuck in stroller run which she seemed to enjoy.
Wednesday – First visit to the Y meant 3 miles of intervals and a quick dip in the pool with E. He was so excited that I almost forgot I was paying $80 a month.
Thursday – Day off and travel home. Coming to see my mom and niece and nephew.
Friday – A day at home with the kids. I always love coming to my moms house because it is quiet. Going out and sitting on the patio in the dark and just realize how quiet it really is. No buzz of the city, no light, just absolute dark. It’s so peaceful. I have a 6 mile run planned and a two hour drive back home.
