"Running" Late

I was so ready to run today.  I was looking forward to it last night.  I was going to push myself further and faster today, and guess what I did...  I didn't wake up until 4:45...  I was 30 minutes late.  My son decided at 1 am last night that he was done sleeping for the night and wanted to play.  So we were up half the night with him trying to get him to stay in his room. Then he would start crying, almost waking up the girls... so it was a long night.

I did get to Nixa and saw the route they were running.  So I started running in backwards.  I knew when I ran into my friends Amy and Paula, I would run back with them.  I ended up getting in 3 miles and almost around my 5k goal pace.  So I was happy about that.  Just wish I would've been able to run my 5 instead...

I then went to boot camp, and it's a good thing they started late, because I got there a little late as well.  We worked core, legs and shoulders.  I think I am going to be good and sore today.  I love that feeling, though.

On another note, we no longer have DishNetwork.  In an effort to save money and better ourselves as a family, we decided to cancel our TV service.  We do not get any of the local channels as well.  It is going to be hard at first.  We have our shows that we love.  We think in the long run it will help us a lot.  We will spend more time together as a family doing things instead of being lazy in front of the TV.  I will miss Community; I guess I will have to watch it on Hulu.

Wednesday is tempo day.  I am excited to see what I can do!

Sorry you missed your run. Life gets in the way sometimes and sometimes I get so thrown off when that happens. Glad you regrouped and made it to Bootcamp.

Kids DO stuff like that, don't they? Julie told me hers stopped at age six. I figure that means another year and a half for me if mine follow the same pattern. Life stages, right? :^)

Congrats on cancelling the TV. You won't regret it.
