Yesterday, it was warm enough to run in short sleeves. I wore capris, but I bet I would have been fine in shorts. I had a fabulous 6 mile run on really tired legs. I ran a route that included the hill that will be in Pacers Four Courts Four Miler in a few weeks. Since I plan to make that hill my beeyotch, I figured I should practice running it. I hit a lot of red lights on the way up and, for once, I was ok with stopping. I’m pretty sure that otherwise my heart might have exploded.
Today, I got the gift of time. The nanny of one of Shoo’s friends asked for him to go home with them. So, I was kid free from 8:30am until 3:45 pm. What a glorious amount of time! I ended up going to the gym where I did 4 miles of speedwork, did my alternative strengthening workout, and then ran .5 miles in my Vibrams. After the gym (and a shower), I hit Costco. By that time, it was still only 12:30!! I did some contract work I needed to finish (woohoo, paid time!) and then dealt with a few of the annoying little things that needed to be done for my business and for our household.
Yeah, I think I’ll do just fine once Shoo’s in grade school next year. ;o) (Only a short bit of time left on the ALO giveaway!

I ran outside too… in a skirt! Yay!
Yay for awesome weather, and getting to work out at your leisure.
Oh, man, a whole day to yourself?!?! J E A L O U S!
I've thoroughly enjoyed having both kids in school full-time – I don't know what I'll do come summertime!
Awesome. 🙂 I didn't run today. Should have but didn't and am feeling bad about it.
Congrats on a great run and time to yourself! Not a bad start to the week!
I can't wait to run outside is capris…and to have a day to myself! That sounds amazing!!
I don’t think I’ve ever trained on part of a course before a race. You got some great training in, well done!
Ha, make that hill your "beeyach!" It's amazing what warm weather does for us physically, and mentally!
Sooo nice to have extended periods of "free" time to get things done. Awesome job on the runs + workout!
I bet that was a well-enjoyed "free" day to ge some things done! Work that hill!
I've got my short sleeve shirt and shorts packed and in a bag sitting here by my desk at work. I'm running (literally) out the door at 5:00 to enjoy this gorgeous weather, before winter returns. 🙂
I'm running outside today, and actually up that same hill. Its supposed to be an easy day, but yikes is that hill a killer. I ope its still nice enough for capris at 6:30!
