So I have visitors this week, and anyone who runs will tell you that it completely messes with your training schedule. Yesterday I had on the schedule 3 miles and weights. I had wanted to get the 3 miles in because I was at 497 miles and well... It didn't happen. I ran 9 on Sun, and my body was still pretty tired in the am, so I was thinking I'd do something later. Well, I forgot that Cub's first soccer practice with the trainer was Monday night and it ran longer than I thought.*
Got to the Rec, got my spot in the zumba class (that's another long grumply post for later), realized I forgot my iphone, all the treadmills were taken (seriously?!) so I biked for about 5 minutes watching tv on my neighbors bike (mine wasn't working) then lifted, then zumba. Came home and ate highly nutritious dinner of....Cheez-its and string cheese. (I wish I could strike that out)
My plan today was to get up early and do my track workout. I had to do it otherwise there would be no time today for any running. Got up at 6:30, eating a banana then Buster woke up in tears since the blanket fort he'd slept in had fallen down last night. Nothing like trying to reason w/ a 4 year old who's tired. DH got up with him and I headed out by 7.
I love working out on the track. Really I do. I have such good memories of running in high school and coaching my first few years of teaching. Anyways, 7 am on a cinder track, I did 8 x400 at a 7:00 min pace with 400 recovery jogs between. It felt easy today, score! About half way through another runner showed up and I actually know her! We'd done bootcamp at the Rec 2 years ago. Anyways, we caught up for a bit.
It was a great workout and I got home a bit to close to the time to take the boys to soccer camp * so DH took off with them (which I don't think he looked at the watch since he left with 20 mins to spare).
Got to go, my mom is out of the shower, can't really blog and visit. Have a great day!
