I never thought it was going to be difficult to train for a marathon after having a child... little did I know! Here's an example of the craziness involved in getting in a 12 mile run this past Wednesday [my new long run day, so I can be partially incapacitated for a day when Mr. D is not around, since I only get to see him on weekends]. I can't imagine what it is going to be when I have to run 20! I guess we will have to see in a few weeks.
6:55 am Little d [therefore I] wake up, play in my room until the chorus of "eat! eat! eat!" brings me down for breakfast.
7:30 am breakfast...smoothie time! Change clothes, make a mess of toys then clean the mess of toys we played with.
8:55 am Drive to the gym, drop off little d at childcare.
10:10 am Tackled 6 miles. Feel like death. Legs feel like lead. Start over TM.
11:15 am Four more miles done but soooo sore and very slow. Maybe need Shot Blocks with Caffeine?! Pick up little d from childcare, drive home.
11:30 am Run the last two miles from my house while mom watches little d for half an hour. My slowest two miles but outside they felt so good in the freezing cold.
12:00 pm Feed little d lunch, eat whatever he doesn't
12:30 pm Put little d to bed, [dun dun dunnnn] ice bath for 12 minutes.
12:45 pm Lukewarm shower. I hate lukewarm showers but I've learned from experience that my beloved scalding hot showers have no place post-ice bath.
12: 50 pm Collapse into bed for an hour till little d wakes up from his nap.
