If there was ever a week for me to skip running, this was it. The two little kids have been trading the croup back and forth, and I haven't gotten a lot of sleep or time without a child in my lap. But I managed to get out and run. It wasn't pretty, but I ran.
Monday 5 - at the Trail with the running group
Wednesday 2 + circuits*
Friday 3.5 - in the neighborhood (miserably humid)
Saturday 4 - at the Trail during Lily's ballet class
Total - 14.5
I managed to run four times and my mileage is creeping up. My goal is to get to 20 per week and then hold there for a while. I'll do that by running longer on Saturdays when I have more time.
I'm still looking forward to the day when my body says, "Running! I remember this,"and it becomes easy again. Someday, going out for a four or five mile run will be "easy," and I hope it happens sooner rather than later.
*Circuits - I do a lap around the block and then do lunges, squats, step-ups, and crunches in my driveway. This week I did four laps and 3 sets of circuits. My goal is to get to 5 sets.
