Check this out. Henry woke me up at 5:30 (ugh) BUT he cuddled me in the guest bed and went back to sleep for THREE HOURS. AKA I am now the happiest momma alive. Not only did I get to go back to sleep but (but!) Henry let me cuddle him. Henry is a squirmy squirmer who would rather be moving and looking at the world and rarely likes to be cuddled tightly. It was nice.
Speaking of being a squirmy squirmer, I managed to go on a run last night… but barely. The Hus was originally planning to be off work at 5 PM, but he got sucked into a really long meeting about our new venture (which I’m so excited to blog about soon) and didn’t get home until 7:20. My motivation to do a long run had seriously waned at that point.
BUT (but!) this is when a training plan taped to your fridge comes in handy. I took a quick looksie at my plan and realized that if I didn’t run at all, it would be three days sans exercise. I aim to do four days a week, so that was enough to kick my booty into high gear.
Instead of 6.0 miles, I did 2.5, but something is definitely better than nothing! I was a bit scurred running in the dark though. I had the heebie weebies the entire workout.
Breakfast is served.
How’s your Thursday so far?
Rock and Read 5K Winner
The winner of the Charlotte Rock and Read 5K is…. Cindi! This will be her first official 5K.
Do you carry pepper spray with you when you do runs in the dark or do you just go? I’m letting a lot of my planned runs fall by the wayside as the days get shorter because I’m such a chicken about running in the dark. What are your thoughts?
