Tuesday Craziness

So, I hope that your monday had went well yesterday. I had planned on doing an easy 3 miles yesterday however that did not happen. I did a 1.5 mile walk during work, but my legs were still feeling it I decided to take it easy and let them rest and do LOTS of stretching. Thats cross training right?

(this is not me - unknown source)
Man I hate mornings sometimes. I slept in a little bit and threw my whole schedule off. I had to clean dried poop off of Walter (#2), make breakfast (cereal) for the 2 oldest and make sure they eat it, feed and change the baby, shower, get dressed, make my lunch, put the kids lunches together, and get everyone in the car by 7:30. I had planned on making dinner in the morning so it would be cooking as I got home tonight but that just didn't happen. So dinner will be a little later than planned. Good thing is that at least I know what I have planned for dinner.

So, off to work I go...

Todays workout is a planned 3 mile run. Most likely on the treadmill after the kids are in bed.

Happy Running!

Happy February!

Hey Y'all
We have made it through January which is typically a pretty cold and snowy month here in the Northeast. We actually haven't had much snow and it is warming up for the next week to come. Which means more runs outside, hopefully.

I wanted to give you an update on my running 2,016 miles in the year 2016 goal. I ran 138 miles in the month of January. Which at that pace I will fall a little short, however we are only one month into this challenge so there is still plenty of time to make up the difference.

Wally and I have also signed up for Providence Marathon on May 1st, which means long runs on the weekend. We have decided that one would do their long run on Saturday and the other on Sunday, because we do have 3 small children that need someone home with them while we are gone for 2-3 hours. This weekend had 14 miles on the schedule. Wally planned out a nice route and I copied it for my run. It has been a long time since I have run that many miles at once.

Well today is a cross training day. Which is a good thing because my legs are feeling yesterdays run.

Happy Running!!
