I love how giant the gear bag is…
And we find ourselves deep in kindergarten after a week and a half. I think we are hitting our stride with the new schedule. It’s not that new….as we were always out pretty early but now we have a hard time that we must be out the door. And even though Jaspy is gone the same amount of hours as always the intensity of long days of school work and then after school activities have him pretty tired most nights. Me too ……we are busy. I somehow inadvertently found myself on a PTA committee for the fall festival in a position I am grossly under qualified to do. Story of my life…..and something additional for my evenings….which weren’t exactly chocked full of free time….and so it goes.
Running wise I am trying so hard to get in those speed days. I’m so on the cusp of hitting a qualifying time. I’m still taking on the speedwork group after my long run and hoping it pays off in those final marathon miles. I am super duper digging the strength training days at the gym and am aiming for two sessions a week, which is a challenge with kid-tivites. Favorite speed workouts if anyone cares: doggie warm up mile, 4 at race pace, cool down mile. This one is also super easy to do on the treadmill, but don’t put the doggie on the treadmill. Next one: 2 mile warm up. 8x 400, 2 mile cooldown. 400s= ouch.
Otherwise…..life with the kindergartener continues. And maybe, just maybe fall is in the air (I can pretend, can’t I?)
