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 nightâ€¦ 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 Iâ€™m so excited to blog about soon) and didnâ€™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 didnâ€™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.
Howâ€™s your Thursday so far?
