No beer today.
No running today.
No kids calling me funny names.
Today was just a nice, typical day in my life.
I’ve been trying to walk more on days when I’m not running. I’ve realized I’m not likely to get much above 25 miles per week running any time soon. I just don’t have the time and I’m not fast enough to add more distance in the time I do have. So, I’m going to add mileage in the form of walking to do as many of my errands as I can. Today Shoo (in a stroller for the most part) and I walked at least 7 miles. We walked Jones to school, then walked to our exercise class, then home (with stops at multiple playgrounds), then walked and picked up Jones. When we got home, we played baseball in the front yard for about 45 minutes.
A quiet day was nice. Things start picking up tomorrow morning. I have to co-op at Shoo’s preschool (hopefully not in the infant room!). Then Wednesday is a mom’s night out, Friday is a coffee at my house. Saturday will be a night to write a post about. We are hosting our annual Holiday beer tasting (yes, I know it’s March. Everyone was just really busy this year). We’ll be drinking a large percentage of the beers in the picture from a few weeks ago. I’m thinking maybe I’ll try to do my speed work on Saturday, but maybe I should wait since alcohol has been working so well for me LOL.
Somehow I need to find time in there to run the 14 miles I have left to hit 20 for the week….

I need to follow your beer run advice. Sounds like a nice quiet day!
That’s a lot of walking – I sometimes wish I lived in town so I could do more walking for errands.
Doesn’t sound like “nothin'” to me! That’s a lot of activity there, girl. I’m sticking with the beer before running.
But that’s a good kind of nothin!
Sometimes you just need a do nothing day. Sounds like you had a fun one!
It’s nice to have one of those quiet, boring days every once in awhile!
Sounds like a good day, I like easy mellow days like that.
Any day that includes tasting multiple beers is a holiday, sister, and reason enough to celebrate. And mourn.Yes MOURN. Mourn the brain cells that gave up their lives so that you might experience your beer buzz.They never asked why; they never demanded any recompense for their sacrifice; they never said: “HEY!! Why ME? Why not some of those FAT CELLS off yer @$$? They’re not doin’ nuthin’!”No. They just did their duty. They are all heroes in my book, those brain cells.But I can’t read my book anymore because I killed too many brain cells and now I’m functionally illiterate.
What a lovely day. You need those from time to time.
That’s great about the walking– and your family is lucky to live in such a great place for walking! I find that the more I run, the less I walk, which is a shame (because it means I’m driving more). Sounds like you’ve got the right formula.
It sounds like you got quite a lot of exercise in on your non-running day. Very nice!
Sounds like a perfect day!
good day with lots of walking! Great!
Sounds like a lovely day!
