Itâ€™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 onâ€¦ something. It sounded important. The baby babble is super cute so I canâ€™t be annoyed. But I can be sleepy!

Good stuff. Good stuff indeed.
Someone has decided to be friends with Henryâ€¦
Building my babyâ€™s immune system one pet at a time.
Speaking of building things, half marathon training has gone really well this week! Now that Iâ€™m about 11 weeks out, Iâ€™ve decided to switch to a focused training plan instead of just going willy-nilly. Iâ€™m using this plan from Hal Higdon because Iâ€™ve used it before and really like it. I am, however, making the cross-training day a â€˜bonus,â€™ not because I donâ€™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 â€“ off to go run. If youâ€™re training for a race now, too, howâ€™s it going? Whatâ€™s your race goal? Iâ€™m starting to warm up to the idea of actually trying to kill it during my race (as opposed to just â€˜go out there and have fun and finishâ€™).
