Track Tuesday 3.25-Miles with Cici – COMPLETED
I still use a planner to write things down and check them off. I try to schedule my week in advance but it doesn’t always work out that way. I had two loads of laundry and to cook arroz con pollo (Spanish chicken rice) for dinner, on my to-do list and crossed it off! It felt good. However, I wasn’t able to get a strength workout in. Oh well.
P was out last night and I was a single mom. I came home with kids by 5:40 and started dinner. I put a load of laundry in, finished cooking, fed the kids and ate dinner, washed the dishes, put a load in the dryer and another in the wash and then gave the kids a bath. I laid out their clothes for the next day, gave Lili a nebulizer treatment and read them books before they went down. By 9PM, I was putting a load in the dryer and folding the other clothes. P just came home and I fixed him a plate to eat but he didn’t want to eat yet. We talked for a bit and then I went to sleep by 11:30. Exhausted.
I was excited though because I was meeting Cici for a track workout. We woke up at 6:45 and I prepared Lili’s lunch. Then I got the kids dressed, I showered, put some clothes away and then we were out the door by 7:50.
It’s arm warmer season. Love, love, love these arm warmers. I got them from the 2012 NYC Marathon expo (the marathon that never happened). Anyhow, I dropped Sebastian off at my in-law’s then met up with Cici.
I love this girl. We talked about A LOT of things including our next races. I’m signing up for a marathon in March and I have high hopes for this particular one. In between that big race I have a 5k that I want to race as well as a Half Marathon. I have some little races that I plan to run this month also. Nothing big. For now, I’m taking this month to focus on RECOVERY!!! Hopefully I will be hitting the pool for some pool running. I had to dig deep into the closet to find my pool running shoes.
I think I last wore these back in 2010. I still can’t seem to find my floatation belt. Another “to-do” that will be on my list.
Post run, I got into Cici’s car and headed to Dunkin’ for some Pumpkin Iced. YUM. There was a bag on the ground that was for me from Cici. She’s so awesome. She gave the kids a Halloween gift. Now that I recall, when we were doing a long run together after we found out that NYC was canceled, she gave Lili a Halloween bag. She’s the best.
How cute is she? Best Auntie Cici ever. We love you girl.
Okay, so do you still write in a planner or do you use an online calendar, i.e. google calendar, iPhone calendar, etc.?
It’s Election Day. Are you getting your vote on?
I am doing some ankle exercises while I type this up. I can’t wait to start training again. 🙂
