You’ll just have to trust me that this week has been crazy. It’s slowing down though, and I am so glad it’s Friday! Jasper and I are solo this week, so it’s just easiest to run on the treadmill, versus try and convince him to stroller run. Plus, running on the treadmill means I get a little “me” time depending on when he wakes up. Tomorrow I am attempting a treadmill long run, which really translates into “wake up as early as I can manage to start, run as much as I can before Jasper wakes up, and once he’s awake, hope he lets me make it to 13-14 miles before declaring he’s bored.” This came at a pretty good time, as I am not “training” for anything, so if I have a long run failure, it’s not the end of the world. I’ll still get a run, just maybe not as long as I’d hoped, and that’s probably about as good as anyone can ask for when you are sans childcare.
Otherwise, not a whole lot of interesting running news. This is a downtime for me for sure. One quick shotout, for doyogawithme.com…..when I am solo I rely on home yoga. This site is free and the videos are really, really good. I like that they have a lot of 20-40 minute ones, as once again, I struggle to put Jasper to bed, do all my nighttime chores, and then think “Cool, now I’m going to workout for the next 90 minutes until I go to bed!” Instead I shoot to do 20 minutes most nights. There are some videos I’ve done on this site that are quite challenging too.
Ok..back to work. One more week then I can run outside….hoping we are getting the last of the cold weather too. I am not alone in saying I am over winter! Oh, and the Lego movie is really, really good. Go see it….it has the best running song ever.
