day 6

Today is day six that I have sick small people.  

My house is a mess because my kids are feeling needy, "Mom where are you?" and "Mom you sound far away" all day long.  I am spent.  

I have not been running all week.  Not once.  None of us have been sleeping, Rob has been working, and I am feeling like a lump. 

What I should be doing is Insanity, these crazy workout videos that have me dripping in sweat.  I may be a little extra curvy but I am in great cardio shape.  My heart is strong but  those workouts kill me.

I should be doing crazy workout videos but I am not, when the small people are sleeping I am done.  I sit in a dark room lit by the the glow of my computer and the TV, until I zen down enough to sleep.

Did I mention that Rob is gone until Monday.


I am actually in a fairly good mood and here is why:

I have wonderful friends who offer to help, and go out of their way to keep me sane.

I snuggled Taylor and Jaxson a lot.

I will not be sitting in the glow of my computer tonight.  The babysitter is coming and I am going out with friends.

The marathon is just over a week away.  I did not run this week but I already got all my long runs in.  I am just taking tapering to an extreme.

By next week we will be healthy, Rob will be home, and I get to run.

Happy Friday,
