I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Good running and questionable parentingLiza
Running: 14 miles moderate hard with 1 minute pickups
This was an excellent run, and I have no idea why. I mean, maybe it was the 30 degree drop in temperature from Thursday. 50 degree running is pretty invigorating. I even got a few “Nice work!” from other runners. But as soon as I walked in the door afterwards, I felt like a salted slug. It was not ideal. Eliot headed out for his run leaving me with the kids who were ready for some high energy interactions. I did not meet expectations. But then I found this nice opinion piece in the New York Times and felt a little better about my failings — after running 14 hard miles.
It was like when I find a nice article talking about how stretching isn’t good for you… and that donuts are. So good.
It’s raining here now and Eliot is making hamburgers and french fries for dinner. I love him very much. I hope to be curled up and asleep like these cuties soon.
