Late run

Okay, this motherhood and marathon training thing is getting more difficult as the kiddo gets older. Last year, my little cutie was going to bed at 7 or 7:30 pm, which left me plenty of time to get ready for work, run and gasp, watch tv even! Now, at 1 1/2, I am lucky to get the her into bed by 8:30 or 9:00 pm! And, with the hubby's schedule change, we don't get to share in responsibilities anymore. Too bad, because with him, she goes to sleep in 15 minutes...with me, it's more like 30 minutes to 1 hour! I have come to realize that I will just have to get my runs in any way I can...5 am, 10 pm, whatever it takes.

Tonight was a treadmill run. The training schedule called for 30 minutes easy. I think my gait must be different on the treadmill, because within 5 minutes, I felt the familiar aches in my lower legs. Shin splints? Guess I better ice! I did get to watch 30 minutes of really cheesy tv (MTV - The Hills). Tomorrow, is a 35 minute tempo run and I am hoping to meet up with the group from Luke's.

Juggling schedules is tough. 5 am is nice!!! I'm very lucky that my schedule permits me to exercise. Me and DW are at a good point right now. I can exercise in the morning which is my preference and she can exercise in the evening which is her preference.
