That's been my rationale so far this week in regards to running.
With the return to work, and everyone getting settled into our change in daily routine, fitting running into the mix has been tough. So, I've been mainly running 2 milers because of time constraints. A 2 miler feels like it barely counts as a run, but at least it's something.
I'm hoping that Caleb soon starts sleeping through the night, or if nothing else, at least develops a predictable sleep schedule at night. He's had some nights that would count as a full night's sleep (9 pm-5 am) but those have been rare; mostly, he gets up once or twice, but the timing is never the same. That makes planning for an early morning run (the time of day when I probably have the most leeway in terms of fitting something in) tough. Plus, I'll be honest, when I'm up with him at 3 am, my brain most often goes, "Get up again at 5 to run?! Ha! No thanks."
To his credit, we often put him down for the night between 7:30 and 8, so to sleep from then until 2 or 3 am is pretty good for a baby who's not yet 3 months old, but on the other hand, I don't go to sleep at 8 pm! So, it'd be nice for ME to get 7 or 8 hours of solid sleep. I feel like once his sleep becomes more consistent, my running will become more consistent. But, maybe I shouldn't be waiting for that. Certainly, other sleep deprived moms manage those early morning runs...
...however, I'm convinced they are cyborgs.
