Monday: Rest day. Little man and i are trying to come down with something, so I am taking vitamin C like it is going out of style. I don't have time to be sick. We both feel feverish, but our temps are oddly enough normal. He has a ton of congestion, and I do as well, but mine is draining down my throat pretty regularly while his is coming out of his nose. Taking it easy, early bedtimes, and lots of hydration. We shall beat this! Also diffusing breathe in our diffuser. I really do think it makes a huge difference when we are home and near it.
Tuesday: Coach gave us a range. We could do 5-6 miles. We chose 5 miles, so we could sleep a little later. It was cold when we got up so took a lot of convincing to get my butt out of the door. I can handle cold so much better in the afternoons for some odd reason. I also took stella ella for another 30 minute walk and she is still pulling like no one's business. She even started tugging on the leash wanting to go faster. Wrestling practice again. One more session before we have to make a decision on whether or not to continue.
Wednesday: Cross training. Well, since the DST kicked in, I haven't been able to bike after work. One of Andrew's little friends invited him to go to dinner and then play afterwards, so instead of cross training i.e. getting my bike on the trainer, I opted to go with and have fun. Bad michelle. Some day I will get back to cross training like I should.
Thursday: Again we had a range of 5-6 miles. We chose 5 miles on the basis that we had a strong 16 mph south wind hitting us and basically making us feel like we were standing still. I also was paying for the dollar margarita night, so had to stop and make a pit stop in a field. Live and learn:) Took stella out for another 30 minute walk post run. Getting so hard to keep her walking, this little lady wants to RUN!
Last night of free wrestling clinic. Time to make some decisions. I am leaning towards having him on the team, letting him practice once a week and then letting him do the home match, only if he wants to at that time. We are going to go ahead and pay the fees and see how it goes. Luckily we just have to pay a deposit on his singlet and he gets his very own wrestling shirt for his other fees. I guess I am officially a wrestling mom!
Friday: Cross training. You know the drill. Motivation, where are you???? A side note. Naughty stella is in full effect right now but sometimes I think she talks deuce into doing bad things too so she isn't always to blame. Hence this:
Let me explain what you are witnessing. Andrew is in a huge coloring phase right now. Most nights are spent coloring multiple pictures, so I had broken out my old stash of crayons that I had boxed up years ago when I quit coloring. He was really, really digging this box of 64 crayons, that is until some dog, probably deuce, decided it would be fun to eat them. The only reason I finger Deuce is that he has always had a thing for crayons and would gladly eat any left behind and out. He ate EVERY.SINGLE.CRAYON. and then I am guessing proceeded to puke them up in the upstairs bathroom. Let's just say that was the most colorful vomit I have ever seen. The tile is stained, but I think it is kind of funny. He has also had some very colorful poop lately as well. I am pretty sure he acted alone, as no one else has rainbow poop in the dog family. Naughty aussies need to run MORE!
Saturday: A chilly almost 10 miles. I sure do love running in winter/fall!
