I got sucked into a vortex of Henry and am just now emerging – with circles under my eyes, a frazzled expression, and a messy house. At least he’s super cute!
Amidst the drama, I managed to go on a 10K run. I was pretty pleased – I wasn’t super speedy but I maintained an even pace and never thought, “OMG, I can’t go on, make it stop.” Considering my furthest post-pregnancy run had been 5 miles, it felt like a big accomplishment!
Cold enough to require mittens – I’ve had these gloves for over TWENTY YEARS. I literally wore them in elementary school. Crazy, huh?
The best part of the run, however, was that it was trash day. I absolutely love, love, love watching the neighborhood dogs freak out at the garbage trunk. In Charlotte, the garage men don’t jump out and haul the cans in manually – this mechanical arm comes down, grabs the can, and turns it upside down in the truck. It’s pretty neat – but dogs must think it’s a monster.
I followed the trunk for a good three or four minutes just to see all the pups lose it. Hah.
So – today’s breakfast:
A protein shake
In the smoothie: strawberries, banana, soy milk, and protein powder.
Off to be a momma!
I SO do not like running on trash day. Stinky!! I prefer Saturday morning runs – I will take the smell of laundry over trash any day!
Congrats on going 10k! I haven’t run that far since… oh man, since my half marathon back in April! Gotta get the miles up, I’m planning on PRing for my Spring Half!!
