2 more loopy runs down. Yesterday’s was just about guaranteed to happen. The Owl woke up at 345, crying. It took me until 430 to get him back down. If I wanted to run, I just had to stay up. 345 wake up was a bummer, but it all but guaranteed he would sleep until 630. So at 500 I headed out armed with This American Life fired up, and got in 6.5 miles…which translates to over 30 loops. Yikes! Got in and had time for stretching and a cup of coffee. Yay! Last night Owl slept though the night (Go Owl!!!), so I knew I needed to get going early to assure I got the run in. I had Ultrarunner podcast fired up, and got in 7 miles. I finished just as Jasper was waking up. I only have one more loopy run, and then I have the option of running with the stroller over the weekend, or another loopy run. As long as I have a podcast I like, it’s very doable. Don’t get me wrong, I will be happy when I get to hit the roads again (I probably ran about 40 loops this am), but it beats not running every time Mike leaves.
I am feeling like a complete butt today, as I am off, but Jasper is at daycare right now. I never put him in daycare if I am off, but I needed a morning. This week has been good…challenging but good. But I definitely notice not having Mike’s help around. Just simple things like making dinner and really hard by myself when Jasper is launching himself off the couch continuously. So I’ve eaten a lot of salads this week. I needed to go to the store and prep some food. I need to clean up the house a bit. Ok, I did reward the fact I haven’t broken down into tears yet with a yoga class right after I dropped Jasper off. I had fantasies of taking a nap too (I may be sleeping through the night, but 4am is still an early wake up), but time flys…a couple errands, and I am due to pick him up in an hour and a half…and I still need to clean. So yeah, I should get off the interwebs. I still have some ideas for running related posts that I really hope to get to soon…maybe tonight.
