Lots Of Rain, Cross Country Meet, Organizing & More

September 9, 2014

Monday: It was a smooth morning… The girls got up and got ready for school, they practiced their piano and violin, then did must if their homework. The 2 kids (a 5 year old and 2 month old) I watch came and then shortly after it was off to school. I had to hang around the school for a little while to take care if the 1/2 marathon-marathon challenge. Then my wonderful neighbor, Stephanie, offered to watch my youngest and the 2 month old for me so I could go on a run. šŸ™‚ It was a wonderful run!!! I was able to get 8.9 miles in… In 58:17.16 minutes. The first 39 min was a good climb up (up Harry’s into Woodland Hills). I tempoed 2.9 miles of it down the hill. I ran that in 16:29 and recovered the last 1/2 a mile. I am so appreciative of Stephanie to watch the kids for me! I took all the kids and let them play on the playground. It was a nice afternoon.

IMG_1967.JPG The workout was a 5 mile workout… 1 mile warmup, 3 mile Fartlek-1 minute hard, 1 minute recovery, and a 1 mile cool down. They ran on our course at the HS. My girls ran a mile with them (well not my youngest). šŸ™‚ As I was driving around today my windshield wipers flew off. :/ Yeah… Not good… This is how I had to drive…

Tuesday: The girls were so good this morning… They were dressed, majority of the homework done, and their piano practice done before school started. I watched the 2 kids this morning/afternoon. It went well. I was able to go for a 7.3 mile run in 52:00.62. It was a nice recovery run. It rained all day again and I liked it. We had a cross country meet at our school today. It was with 2 other schools… A small meet. It was great… The rain, the mud and puddles, etc. Our kids ran well!!!
