Problem with eating meals on the kitchen floor â€“ thieves try to steal your carrots! Gasp!
I had a not-so-fun doctorâ€™s appointment really early this morning (to do this; will blog more about it down the road), ran some errands, and came home to crash. Henry and I napped for a good three hours. It was glorious. I think heâ€™s inherited his mom and dadâ€™s love of sleep.
Lunch was a mish mash. I couldnâ€™t be bothered to do something complicated.
A colorful plate, indeed.
Train like a Mother
While at the doctorâ€™s, I paged through my review copy of Train Like a Mother from Another Runner Mother. I briefly mentioned the book in another post, but I LOVE IT. It is so funny (isnâ€™t that rare? For a book to make you literally LOL?) an full of great information that Iâ€™ve never seen elsewhere. Thereâ€™s a section on how to run if you have young children, even if you are a single mom, and the suggestions are positively genius.
Since I dropped my iPhone into the washing machine yesterday and have to pay a hefty chunk of change to get a replacement (I have insurance but thereâ€™s a deductible), Iâ€™m probably going to pull out of the other triathlon that I was planning to do. Tris are expense! Itâ€™s sad that Iâ€™ve got to skip it, but thatâ€™s the financial reality of being a doofus. Instead, Iâ€™m going to focus on an upcoming 5 miler race and a Half Marathon that Iâ€™m already registered for.
I really like the looks of the TLAM 10K plan. Thereâ€™s two options â€“ a â€œFinish Itâ€ and an â€œOwn Itâ€ version. Iâ€™m doing the Finish It version.
One thing I really like about the training plan is they have little water bottle and coffee cup symbols next to some of the runs. The water bottle means â€œBailing is not an option!â€ and the coffee cup means â€œBail if necessary.â€ A truly flexible training approach which, of course, works perfectly for mommas.
Iâ€™m excited to get started and follow a plan again, but I probably wonâ€™t start for a few days â€“ still recovering from my cold.
