I haven't written in a bit. That isn't because I haven't run, it is because I was trying to balance time between running, taking care of a sick toddler and life. I just didn't sit down to blog about the runs. I ran with my toddler in her jogger for FOUR miles. I skipped from two to four miles with the jogger. It added about a minute per mile. She enjoyed it for a little while. The run was on April 24, so it has been a week. She enjoyed seeing all the birds that would take flight or just hop around. She is a real nature lover.
I ran 2/3 of a mile, or a little bit more on Saturday. My throat was just hurting too bad to try to continue at all. I didn't want to push myself into illness, especially having a sick little one. That morning, was an earlier morning than most Saturdays. My husband, my toddler, and I , brought my brother-in-law to the airport and then headed to the Primary Children's Hospital. She had to get blood work done and a throat swab. I have received all good news from that blood work.
She seems to be doing better. I had scheduled a run with a friend from church this morning. I didn't realize that it would be in the 30s at the time we were supposed to run. We would be both pushing our youngest child in a jogger. She has a baby who is less than one. I decided I should cancel that run. I didn't want her little one, or mine, to get sick. My toddler is just now starting to feel well again. I am hoping it is lasting! I hope to run later this evening, but if not, it will be tomorrow.
I am planning to do a 10K this summer, instead of a half-marathon. I think I will be doing a lot of my running with the baby in the jogger, and I just don't think I could get enough mileage under my belt doing that to attempt a half-marathon. I figure I will wait until she is a little older.
With that being said, I hope if you are a runner, the weather is good for you!
