Weekend training sucked. I did the 3 mile training loop with the kids Saturday but I WALKED it with them, just to figure out where they’d need to turn around. Today I wanted to do a fast 3 miler and push for time or a low key 6 miler, or whip out 8-10 slower miles…. Didn’t happen. Do I feel sad? Maybe a little – or more that I wish I had a few more daylight hours to have snuck in a run today. Do I feel like I’m off track or not meeting my goals?? Nope. I know my mileage each week is fine. I don’t stress it too much. I can WISH I had done more but what I replaced it with was better…
Today we slept late and did dark chocolate chip pancakes for brunch. Then Chris got all the quads ready and we went quading. We’ve had unusually warm, no snow temps so we took advantage. It was a little cold today but we had fun.
After our action packed day of quading we went to Walmart. Samuel turned 9 and he wanted a new bike for his birthday so we made it an event.
Today was the last day of Christmas break. 2 weeks of fun. I spent a lot of time with the kids, took too much time off work. My running is great. I have few complaints. Even if I did, not doing one run for this day with my family was worth it. And honestly, if it was really THAT important to me, I could have gotten up at 5 am instead of sleeping in….
