My long run training runs are going really well. My daily training runs are not going well at all. In fact, I have gotten 2 done in the last 2 weeks (barely). I have been substituting a Jillian workout in place of a run. I know it is not the same, but at least it is something. I have been consumed with work and baseball.
Today, I broke the cycle and ran with Diva in the stroller. I did almost 5 miles but I had to walk quite a bit. The stroller is a pain to push. Thankfully the wild days are starting to calm down and I can resume a more normal schedule.
LAST NIGHT'S DINNER:
Last night I went out for dinner and drinks with my friend who is in town from Arizona. We discussed our October marathon over burgers and martini's. Dinner of champions!!! We ordered the martini sampler. Thankfully the pub is within walking distance!
Tonight's dinner was not much better. Dairy Queen. Who can pass up a Reese's Blizzard that is FREE??? I certainly can't.
I had today off of work and I got to spend it with Diva. I started getting kind of sad because was really missing being home with the kids. It has been one year since I have gone back to work full-time. Today was the perfect summer day and it really made me miss the daily summer walks, afternoon trips to the pool, and playing outside.
As the day wore on, I realized I LOVE my kids but I don't miss staying at home. We are all much happier with me working. Am I awful for admitting this?
We did have a lot of fun today. They boys were at their summer program so it was just Diva and I. We don't get a lot of time to spend 1 on 1 so it was really nice to spend the day together. She made a great coach on our run this morning as she kept barking "Wun Faster!!!"
