Because Im just too busy out DOING stuff! Im picking out paint for my bedroom, started Marathon training, Driving the kids to their STUFF, and pretending I have nothing else looming LOL like a work trip and stuff.
And when I do sit down, Ive been doing some serious relaxing.
Last day I wrote, I didnt run. Must have been a rest day. One would assume anyway. I was just beat, and I sat on the couch all day with my knitting ;) I couldnt get moving if I tried!
But the next day, I got it. I woke in the early hours with a sore throat. And stuffed up. I had a COLD. I manned up, got dressed, and I had a nice run in the park. With Toni. She was very understanding of my sickness, but I actually felt better the further we went. I made her suffer over some very technical Mountain Biking trails, and we covered about 7.5 km in the woods (estimate). We ran for 50.39 minutes.
I rested in the afternoon, and then Holly's class had a class party, which was The Amazing Race. :):) It was cute! I had a group of girls and we RAN around town, following clues and getting questions answered :) I left from there to go to a Ball Hockey game (which totally sucked we lost SO bad.) Lots of activity for such a sick day. And ya know what the first day of a cold feels like. I was eating Cold Fx like candy :)
Saturday I love Saturday! I think tho that we didnt do much. Its a blur now, nothing comes to mind. Maybe, was the the day Holly had soccer...yes thats it. It rained enough to float an ark, and she played soccer in it :) we went home between games and threw all her gear in the dryer, it rained a little less for the second game but really the motivation to go run was low. I did, after the rain slowed, take the dogs for a long walk. I got totally drenched with long grass, mud, and sprinkling rain. But a nice walk.
Sunday, The kids got up early and went to the cows so I went for a run, 8.8 km with Toni and then another couple by myself before Scott and the kids came along and picked me up, we had so much to do! We had a 4H scrapbook meeting in the afternoon, then the BH girls were supposed to meet but somehow it was a miss, so Holly and Annika and Maggie and I did 3.55 km in Bible Hill. Holly's ankle is very sore :(
Monday was another Do Little day, after supper I biked for 20 km (54 minutes over East Mountain) and Im pretty sure I saw a Bobcat on the mountain ;) I biked to meet the BH girls at the AC and we did 5.7 km walk/run. Holly still sore.
Tuesday Scott went away so I got my run in while the kids were in school and while Annika was at a 4H meeting and Holly was at soccer with another mom, I walked the dogs for another 4.25 km, added to the morning 8.7 km run; lots of moving!:)
Wednesday night I ran while Annika was at soccer practice; it was later in the evening which never feels really good. I ran the long way around to the bottom of a hill in town, with about 5 km warm up. I ran up the hill 3 times; it was only 200 m so not too long but very steep. 3 repeats, and it was time to get back to the field for the end of practice :)8.6 km in 53 minutes.
Thursday was my day to take the kids to soccer in New Glasgow so I got to run over there again. Rather than the hilly neighborhoods, I went towards the highway, and back through the busy restaurants and by the hospital. Sidewalks were good but I didnt love that area :) Less hills tho. I looped around downtown and back to the soccer field for 7 km even, 42:35 minutes. This was the first day with the iPhone; this thing has Apps that are really awesome and need some learning :)
Friday; after 5 days of running it was time for a rest day. We walked the dogs for a couple of km and I had a ball hockey game in the evening, but the rest was a "rest" day ;) Active rest day.
Saturday we were up early and off to New Glasgow for Holly's soccer games. She had 2 games and a classroom session between, so I took all of the kids and went. The first game was super good with a tie at the end; we did a little visiting while Holly was at her class session and then we went to the Johnny Miles Race packet pick up and I registered Holly for her run and picked up our stuff. Holly's second game was just as good with her mixed team pulling ahead by a goal just before the end ;) home and sleepy :)
More on that in another post :)
