About Me

I am a late-30's busy career mom, attempting to find her inner athlete, be a vegan in a non-vegan household, and find a way to balance it all without going crazy! I love to cook, read, run, knit, and learn as many new things as I can - which often gets me in trouble.... I am passionate about life in general, and if I didn't write about it, I'd probably implode.

3 Felt Like 30

Maybe it's just me.  And maybe I didn't do as awful as I felt I did, but yesterday's 3 mile run felt like forever.  My pace was 12:12, so I know that technically I wasn't that much slower.  It just felt like I was running through tar.  My breathing was labored, my legs felt heavy, and pretty much nothing about the run was fun.
The weather was gorgeous - about 55 degrees at 6pm, so I can't complain there - though I was a bit overdressed.  I wore a technical shirt and my running jacket (I love having pockets!), and I could have done without the coat.  As much as I love pockets, running with just the jacket would have been strange.  And I imagine things that shouldn't - would chaffe.

I worked from home yesterday (MLK day - kids had off).  I was very happy at how much I really did get accomplished, and aside from a one hour conference call, my calendar was clear.  I was able to work on some major projects with very little interruption - better than I get when I actually go to the office.  I was hoping to take a break and run during the day, but it just didn't work out. 

I'm on the fence on if I'm happy today is a rest day.  After yesterday's run, I'm not too amped to lace up, but I'm anticipating an ugly meeting from 3-5, and may feel the need to pound pavement so I can avoid pounding heads.  Guess we'll see how the rest of the day goes!
