12:00 PM: 4.05-Mile Run – COMPLETED
What.A.Night! I know, it’s the story of my life these days. Poor Sebastian took a turn for the worst. On Monday, he was icky, Tuesday he was feeling better! Wednesday the congestion started, and today, he’s back to the low-grade fever with lots of congestion. We can’t win and I feel awful for my little man. Lili tried to make him laugh last night. She manages to put a smile on everyone’s face, even if she’s giving her mean look (for some reason, people find it cute!).
I ended up having to sleep with Sebastian on me. He woke up at 4 and guess who else woke up? Lili. So yeah, I had two babies. Lili didn’t go back down until 5:45 and Sebastian at 6:15. The next time I check the time, it’s 7:30. KILL ME NOW!!! I had to rush but P got up to give me a hand — though I was annoyed because his idea of giving me a hand was singing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” in bed with Lili when I really wanted him to find her socks, put her boots on and put her coat on. I was still out the door at a reasonable time (8:15 AM). It doesn’t help that he doesn’t like the bottle either — so I’ve been trying to give him one last feeding as late as I can before heading to work and rushing out of work to give him another feeding, as I don’t know how he will take the bottle today.
When I got to my mom’s (8:22 AM), she gave him some saline drops, “bulbed” the hell out of his nose and then I fed him (8:33 AM) on last time. I fed him for about 12 minutes and then was in my car and heading to work by 8:48 AM. Fortunately, I was only 6 minutes late to work but none of the attorneys were in, so I was good. I mean, they don’t mind if I’m a few minutes late anyway, but I try not to do it regularly. I hope that he’s doing okay right now.
Pumping is getting old, but it needs to get done. I pumped early this morning, then I PUSHED myself out the door with a run.
The weather was perfect (in the 40s). I’m so glad that I went because even though I didn’t get enough sleep, I knew I was missing something here and it’s been these therapeutic runs. You never realize how good a run feels, more so when you’ve been feeling sluggish and off. When I got back to the office, this was waiting for me at my desk.
So delicious. My boss was out at lunch and when she returned she gave me a few things to work on, but now she’s gone. I’m going to be looking at my upcoming race schedule and seeing how much each one will cost out of pocket.
Anybody else have a list of races they want to run in 2014?
Who else gets unmotivated from running/working out?
It’s never like me, but wow, I felt run down for a minute. I felt lost, but then realized, I just needed to STOP making excuses and get out there!!! There are two things that matter most to me. My family and running. I felt like I was cheating on running… But I’m back.
