Yesterday was a busy day...had to staff my boss for a speech that took place like 6 blocks from my office, so I walked there and back with them, then walked over to my favorite deli and then over to the park to eat...etc. etc. etc. And ended up with over 9000 steps! I think that's a record for a non-running day! My poor feet are definitely feeling it, since most of those steps were in heels, albeit low ones.

Anyhow, here's the Fit Bit report for the week so far:
--SAT: 12,496 steps, 5.83 miles, 2431 cals (busy day!!!)
--SUN: 3455 steps, 1.58 miles, 1887 cals (forgot to put it on till a couple hours after I got up, so reality wasn't quite that low)
--MON: 4818 steps, 2.4 miles, 1891 cals (forgot to put it on after post-workout shower, didn't get it back on till I got home that evening, so very low)
--TUE: 9239 steps, 4.26 miles, 2200 cals
--TODAY POST-RUN: 4347 steps, 2.21 miles, 881 cals

Managed to get myself through three 4-min runs today, somehow. I am just ungodly tired this week, I don't know if I'm fighting all the bugs going around, or if it's the stress over my mom, or what. Probably a combination.

The good thing is, despite feeling utterly exhausted, I ran for 12 min! I'm getting pretty solid on the three 4-min runs now, and keeping the walks in between to 4 min, so I think maybe I'll start trying to bump the walks down to 3 min and see how that goes.

As for my mom, I actually didn't call them yesterday, just needed a break....but my dad emailed me and my brother last night that the hospital released her but insisted on checking her into a rehab facility. Which is good, she's definitely not at a strength level where my dad can handle her, but his email was really defensive which makes me suspect that he was feeling beat up because she pitched a hissy fit over not being able to go home. I'll have to call her today, I'm not looking forward to it. Half of me is mad at her for putting my dad through this, and for letting herself become such a mess, and half of me feels really bad for her because I know she's miserable. Argh.

Well, better get back to work! Happy Hump Day!

    Love your self-discipline to run even when you're so tired. When I'm tired, I usually give in to it.

    Hoping your mom continues to improve.

    Woohoo on those steps! I'm glad you took time off from talking to the parents. If you can get away with it, DO.
