Yesterday, Beer Geek called me from work to let me know he’d be late getting home. I nearly cried because I had a four mile run on my mental schedule and there was no way I could get it in during the day. I did a mental shuffle of my running plans for the week and moved on. When he got home, he told me to disappear until time to put the kids to bed. Woohoo! Gotta love a man who works late and then immediately takes over kid duty. I headed to the basement with the laptop and ordered our Christmas cards. Suddenly it occurred to me – I have forty free minutes and a treadmill. Duh! I ended up knocking out 4.1 miles in just under 36 minutes.
Today, I wanted to run 8+ miles, but Shoo’s school was having their Sharing Feast and I really needed to hit the wine shop beforehand. So, I dropped off the boys and figured I’d run as far as I could manage in an hour and call it good. Well, I was moving really slowly today, probably because it had been only about 14 hours since my last run. Midway through my rainy, slow run, Beer Geek called and said he’d be home on time. Again with the cheering! So, I bailed after 4.3 miles that took me 45 minutes to run.
This evening, I headed out again. I knocked out a fast first mile, stopped at the local running store to pick up my Turkey Trot race packet, and then ran three more slow miles. Surprisingly, the evening run felt much better than the morning run.
So, three 4 mile runs in a twenty four hour period! And all because I’ve got mileage goals for the year and because of HBBC!
