7:00 AM: 6×400 (26-minutes) 3-2-Mile Run – COMPLETED
7:35 AM: Chalean Extreme Burn it Off – COMPLETED
I was so close to not getting my run in this morning, in fact, I had to cut it short. I was scheduled to run 10×400, but while I was on the fourth quarter-mile sprint, I smelled someone make a dookie in her pamper. I just couldn’t let her sit in it for 4 more repeats. I hopped off and called it quits after I was drenched from head to toe. I changed Lili and then finished up the last day of week 4, phase circuit. I am thinking that I might do more speed work tomorrow since it was really cut short today.
Runners, what are your thoughts? Is it terrible to do two speed workouts in one week? My long run is Saturday and is 10-miles long. Not too bad.
Non-Running/Workout News: It’s been crazy busy at work. I couldn’t believe that it was already 5:10 when I was rushing out the office. Lili had swim and I barely make it in time. With my co-worker out of the office, both attorneys are taking their turn with me.
I was in the middle of probating a husband and wife’s Will when the big wig needed me to do a Contract of Sale. Unfortunately, my desk still looks like Ground Zero and I’m just taking a little bit of a breather.
After work, I rushed to swim and then saw my niece and nephew at the in-laws. They were so disappointed that I had to rush out so I told them if they were sleeping over, I’d take them out for desserts. Of course, their original plans were to go home but knowing that I would take them out, they asked their mom if they could sleep over. So, post swim, I rushed home, gave Lili a bath, I took a shower, Pedro was still playing basketball, I fed Lili, I put her to bed, Pedro got home and showered while I made his dinner. An hour and a half later, I was out the door and at my in-laws again.
The kids were WIRED and ready to have fun. I was excited to take them to my favorite coffee shop. I brought my Dominos with me and I knew they had other games there too.
The kids kept thanking me for taking them out, but I told them they didn’t have to thank me. I wanted to see them. My one favorite line from Julian was, “Rachel, I love you. You’re my aunt!”
I had the kids home at 10:30. My MIL said it was a special night so they could stay out a bit later. I got home closer to 10:45. Unfortunately, Pedro was the babysitter so he stayed home with Lili. I’m glad I spent time with them, and I needed the night out after the day I had.
On another note, my hair is growing and in that stage of, “I’m not loving it!” I don’t want to cut it though as I prefer my hair longer in the Fall. Should I grow or cut?
I’m also growing out my bangs, hence the pins. I’m done with the bangs.
How often do you get a trim? Do you do new hair-dos for each season?
Should I do a speed workout tomorrow?
