Sunday - run 8: I had to make up my long run from Friday, so I headed out around Cleary Lake by myself while Jeremy took the kids to Target. I had problems with the watch, but thankfully, I noticed it while I was still in the neighborhood. I stopped and got the satellites and took off again. But that little miss totally changed my mile markers. At 4 miles, I ate some Honey Stinger, which I love. Yum! I had a mild panic attack at about 5 miles--thinking there is NO WAY EVER that I'll be able to run more than twice that distance. Jeremy & the kids found me at 6 miles. That was totally encouraging. I might have cried a little about how hard it is to run that long. I was working hard; I didn't walk at all! But then, I only had two miles left, and that's easy. So I made my way home. Ivy met me down the block with blue PowerAde. And she said, "Mom, let's run faster!" When I sat down on the front steps, sport drink never tasted so good.
8 miles = 1:33:52 (11:21, 11:31, 11:31, 11:41, 11:36, 12:06, 11:45, 12:18)
Monday - run 5: I didn't take a watch, and I'd never run 5 miles before. My long runs have been longer and none of my short runs have been this long. So I got to the place I turn around for 4.5 miles and went "one song farther." It seems like that'd be the right distance. It took about an hour, but I'm not real sure on when I left. It was a good run.
Tuesday - run 3: Jeremy & I took all three kids to the running club and did 3 miles. Ivy ran a bunch and did great. It drizzled just a little. We have my sister's Instep single jogger, which is not easy to push. So we've borrowed a brand new Instep single jogger that also isn't easy to push. If we decide to keep running with the kids, we might have to fork over a small fortune for the single BOB revolution stroller. It's ridiculous that it's easier to push two kids in the BOB than one kid in the Instep.
Wednesday - Nothing. Skipped a 5 mile run. I think it was super windy, so Bethany and I opted not to take the kids. Then time just got away.
Friday - off: I thought about doing the Jillian Michael's dvd just for something to do, but then I ended up taking Livy to the doctor. And then it was packet pick up for the Get in Gear 10k.
Saturday - Get in Gear 10k: Skipped it. It was raining/sleeting and about 35 degrees.
Weekly Total: 16 miles
