I ran the same hilly road tonight as I did last Friday, just a wee bit faster. My legs hurt! Is it normal for your inner thighs to feel it the most? Seems like a weird muscle to be feeling it in, but when I was pushing hard up the steepest parts, I was totally feeling it in the inner thighs. I think it may be a very good thing that tomorrow is a rest day LOL.
Today was a bit better day. Shoo and I went to a neighbor’s house for coffee and snacks. He was the only non-baby child there, but he did really well. Most of the moms there had kids Jones’ age or older, so their kids were all at school. The house was AMAZING. We live in an neighborhood that is a mix of 1930s houses (Sears houses and brick colonials) and newer construction that has replaced some of the older houses that fell into disrepair. It’s an interesting mix of large new houses, older houses with large additions, older houses that are in good shape, but are on the smaller size (what we live in), and houses in disrepair that are ripe for remodel or demolition. This house was one of the newer, larger houses and I was totally jealous of the fact that the “entertaining” spaces were totally devoid of clutter and kid stuff. In fact, it motivated me to continue my decluttering and straightening. When Shoo and I got home, he did some water painting and playing at the sink, while I straightened a book case and sorted through some of the stuff cluttering our dining room. While our house will never be kid stuff free in the main rooms (too small of a house, too many kids LOL), I have a goal for 2009 of getting the house back to some semblance of what it was pre-kids.
The best news all day came in the early afternoon, though. Our babysitter called and said she’s free Saturday night. Beer Geek and I get to go out to dinner! By ourselves! Without the kids! In preparation, I’m going to bed at 9:30pm tonight so I don’t fall asleep over my glass of wine at dinner tomorrow LOL.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Have fun on your date night!!Make sure you stretch well after those hills. 🙂
awwww, have a blast tomorrow night!
Yay for date night! Wear something cute. ;o)
Have fun at dinner tonight! How fun.
That’s actually great that your inner thighs are getting worked out, I think. I hear that we (as runners) overdevelop our outer thigh muscles, so anything to even that out is good, right?Have a great date 🙂
Be careful of those hills, sister! I think it may’ve been my foolish, yet in some way heroic, yet in other ways not-at-all-heroic, attempt to summit a hill I called Teh Schmatterhorn that led to my getting tendinitis in a knee-tendon I refer to as “the f-wad tendon” because it’s a REAL F-WAD!!1! Plus, I think that’s its official name.Anyroad, hope you had fun and didn’t fall asleep in your wine, but to tell you the truth wine would make ME fall asleep from boredom (sorry) so tell me more about this beer geek person! Because beer! Mmmmm … beeeerrrrr …My word verification: “derace”, which is exactly how I feel, unable to run much less race, with this tendinitis. I should have visited this site sooner, because your software seems to know me so well …
Our house is also too small to have kid-free spaces. I get jealous whenever I go to my friends’ houses who have playrooms.Have a fun date night!
I have never felt soreness on my inner thighs so I’m not sure I can help you here.Have fun on your date tonight! Remember to wear those sexy stilettos! 🙂
I hope you had a good date with hubby. You are definitely hardcore with the sleep deprived run on the treadmill, snowy run, and hillwork today! (I had to catch up.)
