I don't have much to post today. I hope there will be another giveaway shortly, but I'm awaiting the package in the mail. And I didn't have time to write up much else because:
1. Pharmie worked this weekend, so I spent all weekend hangin' with Henry
2. Henry was barfing all Saturday night, so I'm POOPED (even though it was Pharmie who took care of him over the night)
3. I had a ton of grading to do before finals week this past weekend
BUT, Henry and I got in an 11 mile run yesterday! So I'll write about that.
It was NOT a fast run. I'm sticking true to my goal of "just be fit" this winter; I'm afraid that if I go too fast on limited miles, I'll injury myself. So I took it slightly easier throughout.
Backing up to yesterday morning, Henry woke up pretty "normally" after being up and barfing with Pharmie from 11 pm - 1 am Saturday night. Here he is once I got him and pulled him into my bed to feed him yesterday morning:
BUUNNNSSS! Note the "naked" crib on the left
and the "barfy" sheets ready to be washed on the right.
All cozy early in our run.
Almost lost a mitten a mile into our run! I had to back-track
a block to find it! (Note the naked hand on the left.)
Passed out on the U of M campus after about 3 miles.
"Nearing the farthest point from home..." Of course.
I instantly turned around and started heading back towards home. I stopped with him after about a mile to give him part of a bottle (he wasn't really hungry, but it did calm him down a bit). Here's a map of what I ran:
It was not a very "consistent" run: I had to stop quite often to take care of Henry's hat or mittens. But, like I said, I didn't care. I was just getting in 75 minutes of running... NOT a hard training run where I had to WU for X miles, run the middle X miles at a descending pace ending up at X:XX / mile, and then CD for X miles.
And you know what? Running like that is a nice change. I don't want to run like this forever, but right now... I'll take it. :)
p.s. Happy 6-month birthday to Henry!
