I needed to run three miles today and had no assistance lined up. I didn’t manage to pull myself out of bed early (I stay up way too late when Beer Geek is gone), so I knew I needed to run while Shoo napped or I’d be doing it late at night. Unfortunately, Shoo napped yesterday, so getting him down today was a challenge. By the time I got him to sleep, I only had 45 minutes to get ready to run, run, shower, pack up a bag for him, and get out the door to drop him off at a friend’s house.
I did the three miles in 26 minutes. Something like 9:25, 8:05 and 8:30.
As far as running goes, I’ve survived the week of Beer Geek traveling. Next week will be a different challenge as Jones’ has an afternoon camp that ends at 5. By the time I pick him up and get home, it’s dinner time. I think I’ll try to run the two 4 milers either in the morning on the treadmill or during Shoo’s nap on the treadmill and then do the 7 mile run outside. I’ll just have to convince them that having a “boys’ dinner” is fun LOL.
