6:00 (daughter didn’t have to ride the bus today b/c of braces being removed at 8:00)
shower. yes, i went to bed last night after having run 11 miles, jumping off the treadmill, grabbing up girls, water bottles & a protein bar/pelligrino water and going straight to soccer. i’m honest.
got daughters up. got hubs up. ran hubs bath. made his smoothie. made daughter’s smoothie. made other daughter’s egg sandwich. ate a chobani. ortho. phone call to son who slept in town to deal with two bald tires. left one daughter to give son a ride. went back to daughter. yaaaayyy!!! celebration over braces being removed. picked up son again for ride. car fixed. tires no longer dangerous. yaaaaay!!!! cane’s for celebratory fries/coke. daughter to school 25 miles away. smoothie king for me. home. SCHOOL!!! English. Math. Reading. Spelling/Vocabulary. smoothie for hubs. try to pre-prepare dinner – double cut pork chops/wild rice/acorn squash/brocolli. for him. big old salad for me. pick up daughter. throw food in oven. soccer practice!!!! home. help hubs. find some obscure paper on his secretary’s computer after i spray it down with lysol. she was sick today. no chances. i don’t play that. FINALLY, RUN? oh, honey, what if something happens to you in the dark? run on the treadmill, okay? ok. sucks. ok. i can’t get my mojo. my legs are tired from the 11 miles yesterday. dude. 11 fast miles in my book. 9:20-9:40. i guess sometimes i overachieve. 9:11 average. today i’m just tired. do i count the 2.5 even tho it was supposed to be 4? i’m not sure. do i have a hard time committing to a training plan? or am i just tired? i just don’t know. i think i got a day behind & was trying to catch up. bright side: i am healthy. i am healthy. i am strong. i can run. i can run fast. i am blessed like crazy by my Good Lord above. i am Loved by Him. i think i’m gonna flick this chip off my shoulder, be thankful for what i have, call it a day, make a little salad plate of nachos & pop open a mich ultra. if the Good Lord is willing, there might even be a tomorrow. what is that saying? with each new day, God’s mercies are anew? something like that. anywho. no matter how cruddy it seems, the sun will probably rise tomorrow; our families need us. peace.
