This morning, it's still beautifully cool out, but despite the cool air, I wasn't any faster than normal. I ran 3 miles in 33:37 for an average pace of 11:13/mile. Myabe it's the early hour; I just feel like I plod through these early morning runs. Oh well, at least they get done.
In other doings, today is my last day of maternity leave. I can't believe it's already over and that Norah is already 10 weeks old. It's gone by so quickly!
This morning, Norah has her 2 month check up, and then afterward, we are going to daycare to bring in our supplies, get her "area" all set up, and then Norah and I are gonna stay for a bit so I have the chance to interact more with her teachers and so that she can get used to being there (truthfully, the experience is entirely for me; they try to tell me that the practice day is in part for the baby, but let's be honest with ourselves, she's at an incredibly flexible age -- this test run is for me, not her). And then, I think Jerry and I are going to go to lunch and we'll leave Norah there for an hour so I can practice crying my eyes out for tomorrow's "real thing."
So, I really needed that 3 miler first thing this morning, slow or not, because I'm feeling pretty nervous about the test run at daycare today and I needed to have the run to start the day.
