last week was GOOD. and i truly felt like He asked me to do it, but i am just a much better everything to everyone if i can exercise.
sometimes i've wondered if, years from now, i will regret running and working out while my kids are young...will i have wished that i spent those hours with them instead (most of my running hours are done before anyone else is awake...but still...)
after last week, i don't think that i will think that. i'm much more efficient, get more done, happier, nicer and healthier if i exercise! how can i regret that?!?
this week has been another good one.
monday morning, the boys said, "can we go to the duck pond and bring our lunch?" i had other things TO DO. but i didn't do them and said, "YES!" we are just all so happy to be OUTSIDE!
maybe ran 10 miles on monday. not really on purpose. it was 4 different workouts...i ran 4 slow-ish miles with my running group early-early. then went to the gym later to do weights and ran just 1 FAST mile. i've started training bailey (couch to 5k app) so we ran/walked 2 (SLOW!) miles after school. and rebekah wanted to go to the gym to run 3 miles, and she isn't allowed to go by herself...so...i ran next to her :-) ahhh...it felt so good!! and i SLEPT so good! (i did NOT sleep well last week! boo!)
it's fun to have someone next to me in the car these days during all our evening practices and games and such!
this workout this morning. i LOVED it. it really pushed me.
the boys did my last sprint with me. the rest of the time they just played...they are awesome at playing ;-)
