Happy Birthday DaD

Saturday, April 14, 2012

Rough last few days. My husband was injured in a work related motorcycle accident at training- he's in the hospital recovering from surgery to repair his broken left leg. I have been solo parent since Thursday. Not to mention today is my Dad's 70th birthday. Big plans this weekend that I will now have to do solo as well. I can do it. Friday I used as my rest day. I was blessed that my employer let me leave early Thursday and Friday. I also had done Boot Camp and ran 4 miles prior to work Thursday so perfect timing to take Friday off. Besides working, then getting kids out of half day from school, I then went to visit husband in hospital with kids, then coached my son's soccer team last night. We battled back from a 5-1 deficit and tied the game - 5-5! HURRAH. Great team work. Today I wanted to run so I came up with a plan. Had the kids ride their bikes and I ran- to CVS since I needed to get birthday cards from my niece, nephew, and Dad. I also had to get their presents. So we set off from our house- quite the busy street, them riding their bikes and me running. I kept bellowing directions to them- stay to the inside, slow down, wait up....
Mile 1 7:41
mile 2 7:35
mile 3 7:44
mile 4 7:30
30:33 average pace 7:38. Granted I had to stop briefly at miles .50, 1, 1:50, etc- very briefly to check on them, give them water, but for the most part- I was flying. I felt great. Dull distant hammy pain, but managable. They did so well. We quickly shopped at CVS, and got right back to biz. The distance total was 3.87, so I had them sit on the steps so I could round it out to 4 miles. WOOO. Happy to do that. May do it again Monday. Maybe. Have to see when hubs is getting released. 158 was weight. Off to see him and head to cape/

Be well

    Good luck to you. You have your hands full. It will be for awhile, too. Your husband won't be able to get around real well, so you will be doing the running for him, too. Keep up the good work! emoticon
