So for everyone that doesn't live in Atlanta, we had some pretty bad rain which led to flooding. Luckily, our house was not affected by the rain/floods, but it makes it difficult to get some of my runs in. What didn't help was my poor husband was swamped with work so I had to take on a lot of the things he does around the house and had little help with Hope. One day I did end up at the gym and did the elliptical for a while and kept Hope in the daycare at the gym. Of course I felt so guilty about it that I didn't get to enjoy my workout. It's very hard. I have a severe case of mommy guilt. I feel guilty doing anything that is not about Hope, and doing something that is selfish, oh man, that is the worst. I know I need to take time out for myself, but it's hard. I hope I can overcome this issue I am having.
So while I have not had a lot of time to run, I have been active, which is good. I am a little nervous about my half marathon on Sunday though. I wish I had gotten in more runs and hope I can stay strong throughout the race. It's less than a week away. Yikes! My PR is 1:55, and would like to beat it. Well at least 90% of my runs include pushing a jogging stroller so I get a double workout each time.
Yes, Adam has been crazy busy with work, so I have had to pick up the slack at home. So let me paint you a picture, me with Hope in her Baby Bjorn and our lovely 55lb. black lab on a leash (who has never been good on a leash) pulling me into the vet office on Friday. It was a sight to see, but we all made it through and Elle was in great health.
So my plan for this week is to get in 2 runs and some time on the elliptical before the race on Sunday. Wish me luck!
