Instead, I think I am going to take up swimming. I really need a refresher course or get one of my strong swimmer friends to help me. I know how to swim, but I can't seem to coordinate my breathing with the strokes. Every summer we get a pool pass to the "Country Club" aka community pool and this year that have added time for an adult lap swim. I really think my marathon training muscles will appreciate this.
2. Tuesdays and Thursdays are not my favorite days. It is my long day at work and the boys have baseball and tee-ball back to back (or at the same time). I am going to re-work my training schedule so these are my rest days from running. I will be able to resume the normal schedule after baseball season ends.
3. I am struggling with what to make for dinner on these crazy activities nights. We don't have a lot of time between picking up the kids from school and the time we have to be at the ball field (20 minutes tops). It was just discovered that there is a pizza joint up the road where we can get pizza (albeit crappy pizza) for $5 without waiting. Knowing myself all too well...this pizza joint or the McDonald's drive through will become a really bad habit really fast. Does anyone have a great grab and go options that is better than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (which is totally fine but it gets old fast)? Tonight we are having left over pizza (again)...LOL
