Today I woke up, got dressed and headed out to meet my friend Jimmy for a 10-mile trail run. I didn’t want to give myself any excuse not to go.
I wasn’t too worried about it, I did run 9 last weekend but I knew if I let the day get away from me it would be hanging over my head and I’d start to dread it.
We killed that trail!
It was beautiful!
And I loved having company on a longer run.
When I got home I convinced The Husband to take the kids go-karting.
We had a BLAST!
Afterwards some snowballs to celebrate our last Sensational Sunday of summer before school starts.
Once we got home it was naps and playtime while I got a little work done.
First I HAD to pull together this video clip from one of The 3-Year-Old’s meltdowns yesterday.
If I didn’t record him I think I would have lost it.
You got to love 3.
I also, finally, got last week’s 15-Minute Whole Wheat Pasta With Peas and Ham posted on GreenLiteBites.
The rest of the day was cleaning and organizing. Yesterday The 9-Year-Old and I came up with a new chore board.
He’s now cooking one day a week, emptying the dishwasher, doing his laundry and invoicing us for additional paid chores on Saturdays. Oh! And he agreed to run 2 days a week with me after school to get ready for his elementary cross county meets!
I love the fresh start the new school year gives us.
Speaking of fresh starts I have begun keeping a new paper journal today to track my food and training.
I was already keeping a journal with my workouts so I could tracks weights and stuff but I wanted to get a bit more detailed. I’m hoping it helps me shed some light on my bottomless-pit periods and my decreases in certain lifts.
OK, it’s about 9:3o and I’m winding this day down. My goal is to be in bed my 10 p.m. all this week. It’s making a HUGE difference. (I’m tracking sleep in my journal too. :)
Hope you had a great weekend! Anything you want to share or celebrate?
