Man am I craving a schedule. I know that in time things will fall into place, but if you know anything about me, its that I am NOT patient whatsoever. When my parents were in town, I was able to sneak off for a run [or be a responsible adult and do laundry/dishes/etc.] during the kids’ naptimes. Now? Fat chance, obviously. I haven’t even checked the mail in like, a week. By the time my husband comes home from work I am too exhausted to even think about getting into running clothes, and I’m counting down the hours until bedtime. *sigh* In due time, right? Silly me, here I thought that having a treadmill here at home would help!
In pure nostalgic fashion, I decided to pull out my running journal from last year. I know I was getting ready to run the Seattle Rock’n’Roll half, so I was curious as to what my distances/time were. Even though I ran a race, my mileage was a pathetic 35 miles for the MONTH. Sad, sad, sad. And, since I have to compete with myself all the time, I made a small list of goals for the remainder of this month. 1) Get more mileage than June 2011 2) get 10+ miles with the stroller [meaning the older kiddo] 3) workout with the Nike app once a week 4) do planks and push ups everyday. I realize that the month is halfway over, but I don’t see why these goals can’t be attained. I have yet to decide how my goals for July will play out, but I would love to come up with something soon!
I better get going; Spud is due to eat soon, and K is napping. If I play my cards right, they’ll nap at the same time, giving me time to do… something.
