Anyway, the other "rule" I broke last week was that I didn't run on Thursday or Friday. My rule has been that if I don't run on Thursday I "have" to run on Friday. Last week I skipped both days. In fact, I only ran 3 times last week.
I skipped my run on Tuesday last week because I had a hair appt. Normally my hair appts are on Wednesday, but she wasn't open on Wednesday last week, so I had to go on Tuesday. I did run on Wednesday, but then skipped Thursday thinking I'd just run on Friday. On Friday I decided that if I ran 8 miles on Saturday I'd still have the same amount of miles as if I ran all week because of Bloomsday on Sunday, so I talked myself out of running on Friday.
And then Saturday came, and Chris works on Saturday, but that's not normally a problem. . . However, Damian was supposed to umpire for a baseball game on Saturday morning, so then I'm thinking there's no way I'll get a run in. But, I broke all my rules for the week and needed to run. I tried to pawn Maddox off on the neighbors, but they weren't available. So I strapped him into the jogging stroller thinking I'd just do 3 or 4 miles and take him to a park.
Sunday was kind of a perfect day. I was awake before everyone (surprise, surprise) and read my book and watched some TV. I even went outside for a little while and had a tiny fire.
After sitting around in the sun reading my book some more, we went for a walk.
|He was so excited for the ducks.|
Overall, it was a good Mother's Day . . . oh, and I skipped my Sunday run.
So this week I've already broken a "rule." I went running on Monday, I never run on Mondays. I haven't been running on a Monday since August 10th and I'm pretty sure that was because we went to Deer Lake on that Sunday and I needed to do a long run for marathon training. Yesterday I ran because I slacked off so much last week. I still ran 19 miles last week, but I skipped a lot of runs. If I'm going to run the Seattle Rock 'n' Roll half next month, I need to quit skipping runs.
So today I'm planning on running only 3 miles, and 5 on Thursday, and 9 on Saturday.
