I cannot tell you how much I hate taking pictures lately. I think it’s because I have been so busy and serious lately. It’s time to loosen up!
6 mile run last Thursday, 4.5 mile run Saturday and a 4 mile run Sunday. My body is incredibly tired, I had no idea I was under so much stress last week. 
This week is not much better, I am going into a mediation against one of the biggest corporations in the U.S. on Wednesday (think David versus Goliath). What’s worse is this is just one case of so many… But that’s okay. Bring it on. I am ready.
And now I am putting work aside the rest of the night, and I am going to focus on family and on my workout (home gym workout tonight).

So this is the dress I wore to work today — $9.99. A co-worker mentioned how skinny I looked, so I took a photograph so that I could see what the heck she was talking about… and I still don’t have a clue, I just look normal, my usual disheveled self. 

I did 30 mins on the stationary bike last night and only ran 2+ miles tonight. I am really out of it. My mind constantly wanders back to work these days. My boss is preoccupied with a project, so I’ve had to assert myself and take the bulk of the responsibility these past few weeks. I really hope the load is reallocated when he gets back…

Saturday and Sunday.

It felt good getting back into it, and doing something just for myself. :-)

That was Tuesday and Thursday.

I am so wrecked, guys. Wrecked. Between work and the kids, I am under an extreme amount of pressure. 

I have no idea how long I can keep this up. Doing it all is just getting to me, it really is. 

8 mile run last weekend. 4 mile run today.

Today was not the worst of days, but not the best of days. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I will give it my best effort to make it so. :-)

I took this the other day and meant to share it, but life got in the way. 
3 mile run Tuesday, 3 mile run Wednesday (w/ 10 minutes on the stationary bike), 30 minutes on the stationary bike today. Wanted to run today, but couldn’t, because my left ankle feels destabilized. I’m building up my mileage a little faster than I’m building up the muscles in my feet and legs.
Been feeling a little off lately. Feeling like I have to be some sort of superwoman. Get the kids ready for school, get them to school, get to work, take my lunch to go get the kids, take them home, do their homework, go back to work… some nights I’m alone with the kids b/c my husband has to do work events… 
It all might be easier if my work was simple, easy. But managing 40+ complex litigation cases is not simple, it’s not easy.
So the stress builds and builds and I cope as best as I can. 
Thank goodness I have my running.

I made it out on time. ;-)

I came to a realization this weekend, when my stomach cramped up… well, I suppose I had two realizations… 1) so THAT’s what a 2 year old feels like when she has to go and knows she probably won’t make it and 2) I may love Chicago deep dish pizza, but it doesn’t love me back — at least not during a long run the night after eating it.

I’m writing this down, not just to humiliate myself for your pleasure, but also as a reminder of my new rule not to eat pizza the night before a long run.

I CANNOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE AGAIN.  

yesterday. 

10+ Mile Run on schedule for this morning. If I can get out in time. I will get out on time… 

Tuesday/Wednesday. The old PF injury is back, which isn’t fun, but at least is familiar. I will be rolling out my calves today, just like the good old days.

I hope everyone is doing well. I haven’t been able to be on here much lately. Between work and kids and running, I haven’t got much time leftover for anything else.

this morning. I don’t know where all you people get your morning energy from. I had coffee and a muffin and I had nuffin’.
