Well, in true follow-up to my last post, I still haven't been to the gym, because life is busy and crazy and full. I've hardly blogged this week!
I have been getting some runs in though. A few on the road and a few on the old treadmill. You can click that Daily Mile widget on the right to check them out. I haven't logged today's yet.
My week kind of runs by Wednesdays. Wednesdays are my Fridays, since I work Sunday-Wednesday. Sometimes it's easier for me to run on my workdays, because I have to be up early anyways, so might as well get up and run. Sometimes it's easier on my days off because I may be able to run other than the morning, or even if I run in the morning--I can take my time getting ready for the day after that.
Every week is different. Welcome to my life! I kind of wish it weren't that way. I like routine and predictability. But as a working mom of three young kids, you just never know.
Tanget: At what ages do I not have young kids? I think with a 1st grader, almost 4-yr old and 2yr-old, it's going to be a couple more years. Maybe when #2 enters school.
I'm still thinking about doing a full marathon this year. Although I was bummed to find out there aren't many at the end of the summer. I guess it's too hot for racing. But summer is good for training when you have kids out of school and more flexibility to your schedule.
There is a marathon in San Francisco though, the last day of July. Which maybe I could pull off. And if I won this free entry to it--it would certainly be worth going for! In efforts to pay off debt, I have been debating race entry fees. There is a local trail run I was considering, but I'd rather put the $35 to debt and do my own free trail run. So winning would be great!
Maybe that's my new goal--winning entries.. I've actually won several things via blog giveaways. Perhaps I need to stalk running blogs for race entry giveaways. I've seen a few here and there.
Any tips on finding blogs giving away race entries?
The Rock and Roll Marathon is in June. I just don't know if I can train like I want to by then.
I think tomorrow is going to be a video day. It's supposed to be still raining and that way I can sleep in a tiny bit and exercise while hanging with my little girls.
Happy Weekend to me!
