Day one down, 3 to go

I started today with two children and I've still got two with me tonight! Yea me!

I even took the little one to the doctor and acted like I knew what I was talking about when they asked me questions. Poor little guy is having trouble hearing. He was born with a cleft lip and has had tons of ear trouble. Doctor says his right ear is partially collapsed but not too bad. His left ear is fine so we'll move him to the other side of the room. Problem solved. Doc says there is not much else we can do.

I also got him to school ON TIME and picked him up ON TIME! Yea me #2!

I also made the big one breakfast. He didn't appreciate it but that's just teenagers I guess.

Other than that I didn't do much else today. I was on my work laptop all day but nobody really sent me much to do. Turns out my boss was handling everything today. Oh lord, I guess I'll fix that mess next week.

It's Tuesday so it's speedwork day. Tonight was 3x1600 at 6:30 pace. I decided to do it around my house since the kids would be home alone. I jogged around the block to measure out a mile. I set Garmin to keep me on pace for the miles and started my first interval. As usual I started out way to quick and was gasping for air within 1/4 mile. I got it back and made the first mile in 6:39. The second was a little quicker at 6:31 and the third was 6:41. I walked a little to cool-down and hit the house to ice my leg. It was really bugging me. I stretched it out and iced it so I hope it doesn't give me trouble tomorrow.

I know everyone is getting ready for some big races this weekend. I can't wait to hear all about the events. Myself, I'm just hoping for a good training run in Tulsa and that's all I can ask for.

Thanks for listening

Good job Willie! You get the SuperDad award for today. And deep, down, through all the surlyness and aloofness he really appreciated the breakfast. ;)

Sorry the leg is giving you trouble. Hope the ice helped.
