It was the first time since the end of June (except while we were on vacation) that I didn’t make an active decision to not run. Every day for over a month I’ve decided if I was running and figured out when I would do it. Monday, I planned to run. I had the boys with me all day and I ran around like crazy, packing and cleaning and running errands and… I planned to go out when Beer Geek got home, but he had a meeting run late. I planned to hit the treadmill while the boys played Wii, but I got sidetracked getting things ready. I planned to run while they were eating, but decided I was hungry. I planned to run after the kids were in bed, but I started paying bills. I planned to run when I got done, but I finally admitted defeat and gave in to being tired and having a sore foot. (Who knew such a small spot could hurt so darned bad? I gave birth without drugs and I’m popping advil for a plantar wart? Really?)
I think the problem was that I forgot to put it on the “to do” list.
Tuesday’s To Do List
- Everything else that needs doing.
(3 miles barefoot on the treadmill with 4 x800 at 10k pace in a SKIRT at 5:55 am – there are so many things in that statement that are out of the norm for me LOL)

I am assuming it was a RUNNING Skirt – unless, of course, you are trying to start a new trend.
Those plantar warts hurt! I had one on the ball of my foot once. Finally gave in and had a podiatrist cut it out. Sweet relief! Hope yours is all better soon.
wait? skirt? I think I just had a cardiac episode …
woooohooooo, you've given into the skirt craze!!i've felt the same way about dental issues…gave birth without drugs but I need to be medicated to get through a filling? wth?
Just getting caught up…sorry!I'm with you though, I do have to make my running a priority. If I don't, as much as I love it, I can totally make excuses for something else being more important. Good job this morning!Have a blast in WI! And that is so cool VA had a tax free day – I don't think that could ever happen here in California – the masses would go crazy!Happy Tuesday my friend!
Sometimes life just gets in the way of running unless you do it first thing! Good job getting your run in early today!
Sounds like the RIGHT way to start your day!
wait you can do barefoot on the mill?? that sounds really painful to me
You're becoming a whole new crazy person, running without shoes and in a skirt! As long as you're getting in the miles 🙂
I like to work out first thing in the morning; that way, no excuses!
Now it's time to take that skirt on the road!
Awesome post. Love the Tuesday to do list. 🙂
that's definitely one way to start a Tuesday 🙂 good for you!
