Yesterday was one of those days that did NOT go as planned…and that is NOT my kind of day. I am a control freak and like to know when and where I’m doing things. But it was not to be.
My husband had to be in his office for a 2 a.m. conference call. Yes, that’s A.M.–his company is based in Finland and they have these quarterly conference calls involving folks from all over the world, thus the insane time. He never knows how long these calls will take, but we were both hoping he’d be back by about 5:30 or 6:00 and that I’d be able to go run.
I set my alarm for 5:00 in hopes it would happen. Got up, did my strength work, then sat down at the computer to get some work done. The kids were up by 7:30, so that took care of work time. They were in vacation bible school this week and a friend was scheduled to pick them up by 8:45. Still hoping the hubs would appear before then, but no.
Got the kids out the door at 8:45 and left out for my run. My plan all along was to do 10 on a very hilly course. But originally that would have been much earlier in the day and with some friends. Since it didn’t happen, I decided I would still stick to the plan. It was a great chance to push the hills. Ran nice and easy until I’d get to a hill and then I’d charge it. I haven’t done anything in the way of hill repeats lately, so this was a good alternative.
Even though it was much later, much hotter, and I was on my own, I feel like I pushed myself pretty well out there. My legs were tired all day until an evening swim, which loosened them up.
That run certainly was a stress-buster, one that I needed. Don’t forget my CSN Stores giveaway HERE.
