After last week’s 13 mile run, I decided to take it a little easier this week and only do 10 miles on my long run and then do a 14 mile run next week before I do a small taper for the half marathon. As it turns out, my long run this week may be a single digit run.
Shoo is still not up to par. He was doing pretty good most of the day, but lost it again this evening (may have been my fault as I was pushing the liquids pretty hard). Regardless, he’s definitely not himself yet, so no preschool tomorrow. Beer Geek was supposed to take the day off and we were going to go buy a new computer and a new tv, but we don’t feel like doing that with a sick kid along. So, Beer Geek is going to work and Shoo and I will have another quiet day at home. I may be a little crazy by the end of the day, since I’ve barely been out of the house since our beer trip on Saturday. Sigh.
At this point, I have my fingers crossed that I can do a long run on Thursday while Shoo plays at a friend’s house. Otherwise, it’s going to be four mile treadmill runs every night when Beer Geek gets home from work and a long run on Saturday of about 6 miles (both because I don’t want to be away from the kids for too long Saturday morning and because I still plan to do 14 miles next Tuesday). And, of course, if any of the rest of us catch the bug, even this plan will get shot to hell.
