So, where in the world have I been? I refuse to use lazy as my excuse. I was so excited about the cooler weather coming that now that its here, all I want to do is go home, put on warm jammies, play with my kids and curl up on the couch. What??!! Who is THAT person? I thought she was long gone.
Crap! Please don't tell me that I am already starting to hibernate. No! I won't do it! I won't listen to you furry slippers calling my name! You cannot make me ease into your warmness! I want the cold air chilling my throat as I run past the golf course trying to catch the tailwind! I even bought a shiny new Nike jacket especially for those chilly, breezy morning runs. So move over furry slippers! Nike is calling my name!
OK, shew!, now that I think I've won that battle........... Where was I? Oh yeah, where the heck have I been? Taking care of sick babies, taking care of sick me, starting back to work full time, and planning the boys' 3rd birthday/halloween party. Yikes! I can't believe they are three already! They were born two hours shy of Halloween, so they are destined to eventually despise Halloween, as every party we throw them for the next 10 years will be..... you guessed it......... a Halloween themed party. Oh well. Its all about me anyway.... I LOVE Halloween! Just kidding. Ethan thinks everyday is Halloween. He loves costumes and he wears a different everyday! I literally have to bribe him with waffles to get him to take it off so that we can get ready for school. At least he gonna be sharp dresser when he grows up.
I'm actually excited because at three they are really starting to understand the holidays. They understand that you decorate with pumpkins, ghosts and scary things for Halloween. And they know who Santa is. So that will make this year's Christmas very special!
On the training front..... I have the Zooma 5K coming up next weekend. Mimi, myself and two other girlfriends are running this one together. I've been sticking with my 6 to 7 mile training runs, so hopefully I should start shaving off time with my 5K runs. I even ran 8.5 miles last weekend! And it didn't kill me, haha!
I haven't been in the pool since my last triathlon and I haven't been on my bike, well...... since my last triathlon. Oops. I guess I'm allowed a few weeks of laziness, right? I'll be back on track soon. Happy training everyone
