|Meanwhile in KS|
Monday: Rest day. Run around town like a chicken with your head cut off. Picked Andrew up from school and was planning on heading to Sylvan, but Andrew's stomach had other plans. Ended up being late for Sylvan, but then all was well, till the night hit and the stomach issues came back with a vengeance. He was fine after we ate, but he passed out shortly after, and when we moved to upstairs to get in the bed, the fun started. He burped and farted and pooped every hour on the hour. #momlife. Finally at 3 am, he settled in and didn't wake up till my alarm clock went off.
Tuesday: Well, plans changed after my night of no sleep. Coach had some pretty ambitious speed work on the docket, and I just wanted to survive a run. At 3 am i sent a message to our running group that I was not going to get out and run due to lack of sleep. Since I would be stuck at home, I decided to hop on the mill later and just get in an easy 6, and go from there.

Friday: Running around with my head cut off part two. Seriously. Andrew had the day off of school and since it was a day off and not a sick day AND the weather was perfect, we had to get out. We went to the library, doughnuts, McDonald's play place in Manhattan, my work, the MRC for new shoes, a new to us playground, sylvan, target, and Pizza Ranch for carb loading. Whew. When i got home, I was ready to for bed! I also got some new shoes and my first pair of trail shoes! I stuck with my Saucony triumph's for the regular pair and am trying per the resident ultra runner, Brooks Cascadia for my trail shoe. Guess that means I need to hit some trails right?
Saturday: Long run 16 miles! My goal was to meet up with the Manhattan runners group for 12 and then get my additional 4 somehow. My propensity to be lazy and stay in bed won me over and I didn't get up at 4 am like I had intended. Well, I take that back, I woke up at 4 am and looked at the clock and promptly went back to sleep. There is just this part of me saying, don't worry, the time will be SOON that you will HAVE to be up at 4 am for every run during the week, so savor these mornings to sleep in. We are already going to have to get up at 4 am to get our weekly runs done due to the number of miles we need to do. Anyway, I slept till 7, ate breakfast and drank my coffee, and then headed out. After last weekend's race, I actually was looking forward to my long run. Every once in a while you need the running gods to throw you a bone to get you back on track. That run last weekend proved that to me that I still have it, and that i can do a long run even at a faster pace that I normally do them at and be fine. I decided to do one out and back with Stella and then come back and grab deuce to finish the mileage, so each dog got some mommy and me time. This was my first run in my new Triumps that had everrun in the entire shoe!
