I'm a single Mom.  I work all night as a Paramedic and chase my two daughters all day so I don't sleep.  I miss when I could just go out and run every day. It will happen again.  I'm retiring at 50 with my public service pension.  11 more years and Mama is gonna rest.

Stuck on the treadmill at the Y with Val in kidzone.  My headphones died at 15 minutes in so I was pretty bored. Did speedwork because I am always bored on the treadmill and it helps to push buttons and make whatever up as I go along.  Michael was doing his own thing on the treadmill next to me so it helped we were both suffering.  

Warmed up 5 minutes, then 2 x 90 seconds on/off 6:18 pace, 4 x 60 seconds on/off from 5:52 to 5:46 pace, 2x90 seconds again at 6:18 pace, jogged a few minutes, 8 minutes at 6:40 pace, jogged a few minutes then finished the last half mile at 6:58 pace because Michael was done and the kids were done with kidzone and ready to go swimming.  Any week I can string together 40 miles somewhere in the sleepless madness I call my life is a good one so I'll call this week a success.
