Running To Everything Else In My Life

January 16, 2015

Tuesday: I met up with Beth and ran Harry’s loop with her (I ran that loop yesterday with Amber… Harry’s hill is a mile long, steep climb run… With more hills along the loop). We tried to tempo 2 miles down once we reached the top but the roads were snow packed and it was hard to run on. It was the fear of slipping. I was able to capture a picture of the beauty of our route when it was light out and the roads were plowed…

2015/01/img_7052.jpg Today was my long day of babysitting… I didn’t get much done but it’s all good. It didn’t stop my kids from doing what they always do.

2015/01/img_7042.jpg I did work in my 2nd daughter’s classroom for a little while. Her teacher is working on something in their class and took pictures of all the kids and ran it through an app to age them 100 years…

2015/01/img_7099.jpg It looks a little freaky!

2015/01/img_7044.jpg I went to indoor track practice and sent the distance kids off on a run… I was only able to follow them for a little while today. They are good kids! I don’t ever have to worry about them ditching out on a run… But I do always express to them that it is up to them to get what they want to out of practice.

2015/01/img_7070.jpg Corom had a meeting at the church and the girls and I did the homework/bedtime routine. We did have a friend stop by this evening and before we knew it, it was 12:30 a.m. It was fun visiting with you, Julie.

Wednesday: Well I was unable to get up at 4:50 for my run… So I finally pulled myself out of bed around 6:45 and went for a 30 minute run. It was horrible! I felt lousy and my legs wouldn’t go. I babysat again today. Then I took the 2 older girls to their piano lessons.

2015/01/img_7055.jpg Corom worked late tonight and I went to bed early!

Thursday: I met up with Danny this morning for a 11 mile run in 1:21.48. It was a great run. I had a PTO meeting at the school for the Art Festival coming up…

2015/01/img_7059.jpg… Later the 2 younger girls harassed all the junior high kids as they walked by…

2015/01/img_7071.jpg Yes my kids can be quit annoying but it’s fun to watch. 🙂 I sent the HS kids on a fun Fartlek run…

2015/01/img_7062.jpg Then I headed over to the elementary school for SEP’s (end of the term reviews) and to sit at the table for the book exchange.

2015/01/img_7072.jpg We let the girls have a few friends over for a movie and playing around…

2015/01/img_7078.jpg It was a loud bunch but they had fun. 🙂

Friday: I went out for a 43:38 minute easy run this morning. It was a lone run but I enjoyed the time to myself. I had a lot of time to think… These past few days, I’ve been going through my blog to write down my workouts for the 4 months leading up to my marathon at CIM. I am sending it to a friend of mine to revise it and see what I need to do different… I realized that I am not running enough miles. :/ I have averaged about 50-55 miles for most of my weeks. Now I will see what he has to say. Today there was no school, so we did all our chores and then friends came over. I should have my kids do their chores after friends leave! 🙂 The kids did crafts, played bingo, games and made treats (muddy buddies)…

2015/01/img_7095.jpg My friend Stephanie hung out… I was so grateful to have adult interaction! My patience level was short today with my kids. They fight so much… No matter how many activities I have or if they have friends over, they still fight! So it was nice to have her there. After dinner we took the girls up to G-goats (grandma’s). Well on the way up we had to get gas… The girls all had to get out to help dad wash the windows.

2015/01/img_7096.jpg We are staying the night up here because Corom and I are doing a race in St. George in the morning. We have to leave by 4 a.m. to make our 3 1/2 hour drive. :/ The things we do for a race.

  1. Hey, goodluck in the race tomorrow. I’m interested in hearing what your friend says about your milage/workouts in preparation for the CIM. I’m running a marathon in the next couple of weeks & we are doing similar weekly milage. You’re much faster tho haha! Oh, and my three boys drive me bonkers with all the fighting they do. I totally get it 🙂

  2. Have a fun race!
