I hit 60 miles this week, which is pretty much a miracle considering we had THREE snow days and all the sidewalks are still covered. Fitting in running miles is my superpower. And farting on command.
Monday– I had to take this one to the gym because when Callum and everyone is at home and I run on the treadmill in the garage, then he keeps coming into the garage or he cries and bangs on the door. So I headed to the gym in the snow (super short drive), ran 3 miles at 8 min/miles, 3 miles at 6:40 min/miles, and then the last mile at 7:03 min/miles.
Tuesday– Another snow day. :/ Out of desperation, Andrew called up his mom and asked her if she’d watch Callum for an hour and she obliged, so we dropped him off and headed to the gym. This is the first time we’ve ever gone to the gym together! We ran 5 miles on the treadmills and around the mini track. Then later on once Callum was in bed, I ran a slow 4 miles to unwind for the day.
Wednesday– I ran 7 miles this morning on the treadmill and then after cleaning the house and doing my strength work, I ran 2 more miles while Callum played with my phone and ate ice cream. :/
Thursday– Another snow day. Well, this time school was cancelled because of freezing rain. Can’t the kids just put on a pair of boots and carry a frigging umbrella? Anyway, Andrew and I scored an hour of sanity by dropping Callum off at his parents house and we went to the gym! We ran together around the indoor track, and I did 2×2 miles at 6:50 mile pace. So Andrew did 5 miles and I did 7 total. We felt a million times better after this!
Friday– Ugh. So, I drove Katie to school and then started running on the treadmill but Callum busted me, so I spent 6 miles on and off the treadmill, making him breakfast, changing his diaper, etc etc. It was okay. I guess I should be thankful that school was back in, and that we have a treadmill to use in the garage for days like this! I’m hoping for a 12 miler outside tomorrow morning after I drop Jake off at work! Fingers crossed.
Saturday– This was the best run I have had in so long! I drove Jake to work early this morning and then headed OUTSIDE for a run! I didn’t know how long I’d go for–I just started running and felt great so I kept going. The first 9 miles were done at an average 7:50 min/mile pace and then the last 3 miles were done in 7:30, 7:24 and 7:20. I was done 12 miles by 8:30am!!
Sunday– Somehow I managed to do 10 treadmill miles between diaper changes, making breakfast, drawing trains, picking up a huge mess of plastic forks, filling up sippy cups and squeezing in some weights.
