It’s a slow morning over here. Per the usual. A rough night with the wee one always leads to a slow morning. Henry decided 5 AM was an excellent time to tell me all about his theories on… something. It sounded important. The baby babble is super cute so I can’t be annoyed. But I can be sleepy!

Good stuff. Good stuff indeed.
Someone has decided to be friends with Henry…
Building my baby’s immune system one pet at a time.
Speaking of building things, half marathon training has gone really well this week! Now that I’m about 11 weeks out, I’ve decided to switch to a focused training plan instead of just going willy-nilly. I’m using this plan from Hal Higdon because I’ve used it before and really like it. I am, however, making the cross-training day a ‘bonus,’ not because I don’t believe in the power of cross-training (I definitely do) but because I know my schedule and how hard it is to workout five days a week as opposed to four. I hope to do my cross training more often than not, though.
As you can tell by this highly flattering Instagram pic, my post-training regimen now includes a protein smoothie the size of my sweaty face. And that, my friends, is reason enough to get out on the road.
On that note – off to go run. If you’re training for a race now, too, how’s it going? What’s your race goal? I’m starting to warm up to the idea of actually trying to kill it during my race (as opposed to just ‘go out there and have fun and finish’).
