So- a very quick VERY random update post before I head off to work!
Theo is doing great! He is still having some trouble with his blood composition but is off the ventilator and gaining weight! I got a chance to see him on Friday! I LOVE newborns!!! SO cute! I seriously almost wished I could have one more. This would require me finding a new husband since the one I have can't help me in that department. That would be entirely too much work so I'll be content with my 3.
I work full time this week and I have 2 playoff hockey games during the week, no hubby for 3 days, and district playoffs this weekend. I actually feel pretty relaxed. I took the advice of a wise woman and spent 2 hours yesterday totally organizing for the week. Every meal, every workout, every hockey game, all my time ORGANIZED. I'm hoping this will allow me a little less stress. I need sleep. I need to be able to relax....I am already ahead of the game as I finished my workout and have 23 minutes before I have to get the kids up for school!
Katy Perry aka Jill was Awesome last night! Eminem and Skylar Grey-goosebumps. I traditionally would not listen to this kind of music outside of running but he does what he does WELL and it was a ROCKIN' performance. I love the Grammy's! (I DON'T so much love Ricky Martin in man jeggings...)
I ran my long yesterday morning in 37 degree temps. GLORIOUS! My hubby was doing a speed workout so we ran a 3 mile warmup together before he took off! We have never run together much. He hopped in on a few segments of long runs with me last winter and that was really great but usually we're on different schedules. We've only done one speed workout together ever and I'll admit it wasn't pretty. He was trying to help-I was TRYING to be a b*tch....or so he said-ha!
My son lost his first hockey game yesterday. He looks so sad in this picture!
I was looking for a picture on the computer from my husband dressed as Richard Simmons for Halloween to show my cousin. This was just nasty and he TOTALLY played the part. No man should wear his wife's running shorts and think she will stand by him at a party. Anyway, I came across this one in the Halloween file instead. This is Joe before a HM he ran one Halloween. (It was cold, hence the tights) He was actually carrying a 6 pack of Coors lite with him the whole race in which he cracked a can and dumped it over his face as he crossed the finish line. What a finisher photo-I'm SO proud..... No, my kids and my parents weren't there and I totally pretended I didn't know him. He thrives on this and makes it quite obvious we're together. Fortunately, we didn't run the race together as I could barely see him by about the one mile mark he was so far ahead.
My week in running. I'm gonna make this short. 54 miles total which is quite a bit down from where I wanted to be. This week is a total regroup for me. No more excuses, I WILL GET WHAT THE PAPER SAYS DONE!!! I got the urge to check out my training from last year at this time. THIS IS A LINK to a blog post I wrote one year ago and breaks down my week. Quicker than me trying to type it. 65 miles that week. My tempo is currently faster than I ran it there and I guess my 12 mile this week was about the same pace but my long runs are MUCH slower. I only cracked 8 minutes for 2 miles of my 16 yesterday. I am slightly panicked about this because it feels the same as I did then. Actually, I think I felt worse yesterday....It's hard for me to get out of the mindset of marathon training. I don't actually start that until March. PS-DO NOT MAKE FUN OF MY HAIR!
So-my 23 minute time allotment is up and I must go! I get a quick Valentine's Dinner Date tonight before my hubby takes off and I think I'm going to order steak. I have a serious craving for red meat right now for some reason and I rarely eat it.
Have a great Valentine's Day all!
