How many days in a row can you generally run without getting sore? I had a great run on Friday & Saturday, so I tried to run today & it was not happening. I'm trying to train myself moderately & slowly, to avoid injury and other reckless foolishness, so I bailed on the treadmill & used the elliptical for 45 minutes. I'm hoping that I will slowly build up endurance so that I can run 4ish days in a row without a break? More? What should I be shooting for here?
I came home from the gym today & was so hungry that I wanted to eat Nick (my little guy - almost four) for lunch. One of the hardest parts about being a mom? Having to put aside my own irrational hunger in the face of a screaming kid who is also hungry & wants you to make him a grilled cheese sandwich right this very second. So you're basically faced with the intoxicating aroma of melted butter and cheese while you contemplate hoovering everything in the house. But, speaking from previous experience, no meal can be enjoyed when there is a hungry kid in the house. Suffer the initial punishment and feed them first so your own lunch can be enjoyed in peace.
I'll leave you with this (relatively recent) picture of me with my little people (Sam - 5 & Nick - almost 4).
