    • I’ve modified my plan for the next fitness period that I’ll be tracking to be more realistic with my abilities to do both weights and ramp up my running
  • Pictures of the Week:
Bryson and I went for a run today, first one in months! I wasn't sure if he'd still tolerate it, but he loved it! So there we were, pretty far from home and about to turn 3.5 miles and shooting for a total of 5 so I took a little park access road back, thinking it hooked back into the trail. It didn't. We ended up at the end of the road with a creek between us and the trail. Hmmm... Not about to tack on an additional 1+ miles by going back, I decided to all-terrain it across the TINY creek with Bryson in the BOB. I got him across but the front wheel started sinking into the mud, and I was attached to the stroller with the wrist strap and could not get leverage to hop across. I fell into the creek and the stroller turned completely over, with Bryson upside down in the mud! He was unfazed and we got upright again, but we were covered in mud! I grabbed my phone, brushed myself off, laughed with a gal who watched the whole thing, and headed home. 6.15 miles later, I strolled up our sidewalk and... No house key. It fell into the creek. So, we hopped in the car (hubs was in the driveway on his way out) and drove back to that damn access road and retrieved the key and my rape whistle. Three things were confirmed with this experience: 1) I can laugh anything off as long as the sun is shining, 2) I NEVER lose anything and 3) my kid is the most tolerant running buddy EVER!

I am exhausted behind my own belief, and the kids are in quiet time/napping, and I really just wanted to sit around and think about how tired I am. Yes, pity party over here. But that's not a good use of time so I laced up my runners and hit the pavement. Fastest 5k time of my entire existence! I guess it's time to start really thinking about upping my speed! Sub 27:00 - my goal for years and it wasn't even a race day!

  1. OH MY GOD! That is crazy! I’m glad Bryson was okay and that you managed to laugh it off. Good for you for just rolling (no pun intended) with the punches!

    Sorry to hear you’re burned out. Hope everything is okay.
