Funny the way it is…


I had a long list of things to do today.  I knew some things would not get done, but as the morning quickly wore on, I knew there were lots of things that wouldn’t get done.  So, always in Mom-mode, I scanned my list to see what could wait & what couldn’t.  My 3rd grader’s doctor’s appointment lasted an hour longer than I anticipated, but that’s how it goes.  Pick up my bike?  Not today.  Birthday gift for party tomorrow?  Well, can’t we just go into town later or tomorrow before the party??  Surprise-encouragement-letters to my 16 year old about to be confirmed in our faith?  Gotta.    Tickets for Alice in 3D?  A must.  Got them.  Call from husband  needing something from the health food store – I’ll always squeeze that in regardless, and I was surprised with a new brand of Hibiscus Kombucha…got his stuff, got my drink…I’m going to run anyway, right?  How ’bout a track run?  I would LOVE to say a speed workout, but it wasn’t technically that.  I warmed up for a mile, increasing my speed with each lap.  Then, I just tried my best to bust it around that 400m circle.  Thought I would die, so figured that was a good thing : ).  Another lap running slowly.  Planned my strategy during that lap – let’s not get crazy.  We just ran a half marathon on Sunday & girlie things are still happening.  So, I just tried to stay around an 7:30-8:00 pace for another lap.  Did it.  Then, I realized a weak start is still a start.  Next time will be better.  So, rather than beat myself up over it, I ran happy, pushing myself a little harder than a regular run and was fine with that.  Made me realize I have to set a realistic goal…I can do that.
