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.

Intentions were good, made it to the Y, but Val was mopey and acting puny and has a bit of a fever so mission abandoned.  Flying solo with young children as a parent makes consistency quite difficult.

Treadmill fartlek for an hour.  Mostly quarters at 6:40 pace.  I'm having terrible tailbone pain for no reason.  I haven't fallen or anything.  Hurts to sit, cough, sneeze, or laugh.  Can't lay on my back.  Standing, walking, running, are fine.  so weird

Dreadmill at the Y.  1 mile warm up, 3 at 6:58, jogged a mile, 4x 400 at 6:18 pace with 400 rests, coold down to 7.  Not really a planned speed workout, just got bored as usual on the mill.   My mysterious tailbone pain is almost completely gone.

no run today but I benched for the first time ever.  Benched almost my bodyweight so pretty proud of that.  It was fun and scary but Michael spotted me so I knew I would be fine.

Eventually got this run in at post 12.  We heard two gunshots nearby around 0200, so I was a little leery.  Went out around 0300 and walked the perimeter and didn't see anything so went ahead and started laps.  Got interrupted by a call at lap 10, but ran 20 more when we got back.  30 laps total.  It's a run.  Nobody shot at me.
