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.
