1:00 PM: Lunch Run –
Today calls for speed run but I think I’ll be doing that run tomorrow on the tread instead since it’ll be raining. It’s going to be 54 and sunny at 1pm, so I am looking forward to a run. In fact, I’ve packed a tank for my run — but not shorts. I was sketchy about whether to wear capris or shorts. I’ll see if I regret not taking the latter.
On another note, can you believe my little stud is a whopping 6-months old today? It’s hard to beileve that this was me 6 months ago.
It’s crazy that 6-months today, I was in the waiting room listening to those lives that were taken on 9/11. We were patiently waiting for my ultrasound that would determine what the next step would be — and just like that, without breakfast or lunch, I was being told to admit myself into L&D and that I’d be delivering today. WHAAAAAA???? Feels like a dream. And now, our baby is just getting bigger and bigger.
P and I were talking about how it’s amazing — one minute they’re helpless and now he’s rolling over, bouncing, almost sitting up, babbling, etc. I absolutely love both my babies and being a mom of two.
Sure it gets rough. I function on 4-hours of sleep at least 5-6 days a week. My house is a mess most of the time. I don’t get to run with friends as much as I would like to run — plans get rescheduled. My patience is tested every.single.DAY! Sometimes I hear my mother coming out of my mouth. But then I stop — take a deep breath and remind myself, they will get older. They’ll stop screaming “mommy, mommy, MOMMMMMMMY” — they won’t want to cuddle with me. So with that, I smile and answer Lili the same answer 10x in a row if I have to and I carry the baby instead of getting that workout in. It’s about compromise and priority. And my family takes precedence– then running comes really, really close. HAHAAHA — Believe me, in two months, when the weather is nice out and Sebastian is 8-months, I’m coming at ya, full circle with two tots in a jogger. Just make sure to move out the way because I don’t think you’ll be able to stop me.
I’m planning to run a 5k Shamrock Race this Saturday — I will try to make it work, if even with Lili in the jogger. Chelsea is convincing me to DO THIS RACE!!! 🙂
Who else has spring like weather on this Tuesday? At what temp do you break out the open-toe shoes? At what temp do you wear tank and shorts for a run?
I better get ready for my lunch run + Trader Joe’s run. I need to get a few things for dinner tonight! Ohhh, maybe I’ll try Chelsea’s Spaghetti Squash recipe.
