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.

East Y.  Set the treadmill at 6:40 pace and ran for an hour until it shut down.  Afterwards did about 20 minutes of weights and then needed to get Vanessa out of kidzone.  I am looking forward to running outside tomorrow!

Easy in the cool autumn air, and a little Kansas wind, no watch.  Afterwards I took my Mom to the Y so she could check it out, walked 20 minutes uphill on the treadmill while she walked, and then we went and puttered around with some weights for a while... and then she got a membership.  Your welcome YMCA for the recruitment.

No watch, mileage estimate, in the nieghborhood around my daughter's school before picking her up.  Ran easy except for when I was going south and had a fun tailwind then I ran hard, so about 1.5 miles of the run were fast.

mmm well something is better than nothing, right?  Nice little run, I enjoyed it.  It was nice to sleep for 5 hours instead of 4.  It was nice to sit still and drink coffee and wake up instead of stumble out the door into the afternoon sunlight to run.  It was nice to take my daughter out for pizza and play and read and skip the whole Y/kidzone thing.  Tomorrow I plan to run longish and hit the weight room for a solid all-over workout--after a full night's sleep!!  Looking forward to that too.

This is the first run of the year where I had to wear gloves and cover my ears.  I tried out a new loop and got thirsty so stopped at Mom's and got a drink.  Then I convinced her to go to the Y so we went and I got some good core and weights in.  I was really planning to run a little longer but oh well-no watch but I was clipping along pretty fast, just a bit slower than marathon pace effort.  Tomrrow me and Mom are going to go to a zumba class; I am terribly clumsy so that should be interesting.

My car broke. Grrrr. Mom brought Mini me to school and then we went to the Y. I ran 3 on the treadmill at 6:40 pace and then we attempted zumba. It was fun, and I only had rythm about half the time, but I shook my booty, and everything else, and broke a sweat. So glad nobody I knew was watching. We will go back! Meant to run more but the rest of the day involved laundry and arguing about car repairs and freaking out about money and now I'm heading to work. Looking forward to a relaxing run in the morning with Pre. my legs are feeling the weights from yesterday.

I am beat up and tired from work last night, lost my voice to some upper respiratory crud, but glad I came out and ran a few with the crew, it was good to have a little company!  Good night/day!  zzzz
