I've noticed that lots of bloggers do weekly themed posts such as "Motivational Monday", "Two Things Tuesday", "Five Things Friday"... etc. In an effort to blog more frequently, this week I am going to give my posts themes following along those same lines. I can promise you two things: 1. I will post something every day. and 2. Each post will be, a positively poignant peek into my musings on motherhood mania and mayhem as well as rich and revitalizing recaps of rigid running routines or at the very least each post will have an amazingly astute alliterative address that most likely will have absolutely nothing to do with the content.
So to start it off, here is "Miscellaneous Monday".
When I run I think about random things. For instance, I was wondering about sidewalk etiquette in countries where they live down the left side of the road. Do they also walk/run down the "wrong" side of the sidewalk? Does anyone have any experience running in Europe?
Jonny got up at 4 again this morning and instead of heading out for my run after feeding him, like I had planned, I headed back to bed. I won't lie, every early morning run I go on is a battle between getting my run in and getting a few more precious hours of sleep. Today, sleep won the battle. I did however get the opportunity to run a little later in the morning. Dan, didn't have any morning class and since he has a serious case of Senioritis he didn't have any need to get to school before his afternoon class started and he graciously volunteered to stay with the kids while I headed out for a run. To change things up a bit, I thought it might be nice to take Leona out in the stroller and leave the boys home to do whatever it is that boys do when the girls are gone (play the wii). It was a great day for a run. Overcast but not cold and really calm. I don't know why, but I tend to run much faster when I'm pushing the stroller. When all was said and done today, I ended up running almost a whole minute per mile faster than I have been. It felt good though. Maybe I'll try to pick up the pace a bit more when I'm running solo. Anyway, it was a good run and I'm glad that I was able to get the extra sleep and still get it in. It's looking like the week is off to a good start.
Here's my running buddy. It was hard work for her too... wore her right out.
