In honor of my 35th I had planned a 3.5 mile run on Saturday. Well, I had planned a six mile run for Saturday and another six mile run for Sunday, but I wanted to take a picture of 3.5 miles and keep going for the rest.
Of course, I have kiddos and a husband who had to work and a whole slew of other crap going on so it didn't happen on Saturday. Ah well.
Sunday my lovely husband made me breakfast and let me sleep in. I ate, hung out for a bit and decided I would run right then.
Spring has finally sprung around here and I decided I didn't want to run alone.
|"Go this way, Mama!"|
It was a rough run for me, one of those ones where I started to doubt my ability to run 13.1 miles in less than a week.
And then I realized it was so rough because I was pushing SEVENTY POUNDS OF TODDLER while I ran. Duh.
I plan on running with them on Tuesday and Thursday. We had a good time, they liked the running parts and cheered me on, "Mama go faster!" when I felt myself lagging. Figure we can do the same thing, run a bunch, end up at the park, play, head on home. Fun for all! Plus, it's a full body workout. No joke, when I got up this morning my arms were sore, like weight lifting sore.
And my lovely husband, sons, and in-laws all went in on the best birthday present a runner could ask for: NEW SHOES! I am going to our local running store at some point this week to get them and I am super excited. I'm thinking Brooks, I have read good things, but I will try a bunch on and we will see.
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
