Monday Runday

Once again, I had resoved to get up at the crack of dawn and run, and once again, I did not get up to do that.  Instead, I took the advice I gave Norah at 5:15 when she appeared at our bedside: "Go back to sleep; it's still night time."

But, Mondays are an easy day for me in terms of work.  I just have one afternoon class, and if I leave school right when my class gets done, I can hurry home and be there by 3:45.  Which is what I did today.  Jerry and the kids don't get home until 4:30, so I quick took Scooter out, then dressed in my running clothes and was back out the door at 4.  Now, running at 4 pm in August in South Florida is not usually advisable, but I figured I could get 2 miles in and a quick shower before they got home, so...heat be damned!...I got out there and ran my little 2 miler.

Got home, got in the shower, and was rinsing the conditioner out of my hair when I heard them come home.

It was nice to fit it in despite skipping the morning option.  Still, one of these days, I'd like to feel like I don't have to rush through a run, or squeeze it into some weird time of day.  Sigh...I don't think a day like that is my near future. 

Oh well, getting it done is good enough!

"Go back to sleep; it's still night time." Does that actually work? I'd like to try it with our cat.

working full time with two little ones? you are a rock star for getting out for a run at all!

Heather said...

Getting it done is definitely good enough - way to get out there even in the heat.

Robin said...

Getting it done is certainly good enough! I still have to find times to fit some of my longer runs in and I just have the one kiddo. Can't imagine having two! Way to go!

Would you ever consider getting a treadmill for your house? I'm a total wimp about running in the heat is why I ask!

Good job fitting it in.

My kids are 9 and 5 and there are still some days when I squeeze in a really short run. But those kind of runs do get less frequent...

I'll take 2 any time I can squeeze it in. Good job!

Sarah said...

That's so true... I'm always "fitting a run in"! But I love and need them nonetheless! Great job on just getting it done, a lot of people wouldn't!

Marlene said...

Glad you were able to fit it in - you do what you gotta do!

LOL at "still night-time"!

Well, you have Fall to look forward to, even if you must run in the afternoon.

I used to do almost all of my running during that timeslot until I was forced into long work hours and now having to wake up super early to fit it in.

Man that's exactly what I told myself this morning when the alarm went off at 5:30. And I did!

Nice job fitting something in in the afternoon though!
