Got up, laid on the couch, let Vanessa watch television, and fed her a chocolate doughnut. Then we drove and parked at my moms and went on a stroller run for 5.15 mile at a leisurely 8:59 pace. Went back to mom's, drank some coffee, then went with mom with the stroller again for 1.65 miles at 13:39 pace. I wore different socks and didn't get blisters from the crocs. They felt great. Then I hurried and showered and went to the nurse's meeting and now I'm frustrated and burnt out and have a crammed full day tomorrow and don't feel like cooking or cleaning the house. I want a break. Crap. I have to catch up on paperwork before getting more behind but I am seriously shut down and am not going to do anything right now. It's one of those days.
pm: after I laid on the couch for an hour and prayed a little I realized what a blessed life I have and am grateful to have. I got up, ate dinner, and spent time with my family. After the kids were in bed I went for a quick jaunt in town and saw another runner ahead in the dark, so of course I sped up. Well, he was really hoofing it and I never caught him but dropped two fast miles 7:04 and 6:54 in the process before giving up. The crocs did pretty good at race pace. Slowed down and finished. I feel better now. 7:41 AP
