Happy Thursday! We’re on a roll over here, or at least Ethan is. He has been able to roll for a while now, but he’s roll-crazy at the moment. As soon as you lie him down on his back, he flips.
This would be cute, except he doesn’t really like being on his tummy. He kept me awake a couple nights because he’s mad he’s on his belly, but each time you roll him back over, he flips again. Sighhhhh. Luckily he has just started getting comfortable sleeping on his belly, so hopefully it won’t be an issue.
Every once in a while he forgets to turn his head to the side though. Like yesterday, he was sleeping in an almost face-down position. During his nap, I sat outside his room with my laptop so that I could hear him breathing.
Fun stuff I tell ya. ha
I didn’t just want to pop in today to talk about Ethan. I actually wanted to give an update on my “training” and to rant for just a wee bit.
I am eager to do another half marathon. Now that I can stroller jog, running seems like the most effective workout for me right now. I hadn’t mentioned it yet, but I was aiming to do one in late May.
However, while building my base and during the first week of training, my knees have been killing me. I think it’s mostly due to getting up and down off the floor with E, and carrying him up and down the stairs 10000000x per day, and then once you throw in running, it’s not good.
I still want to run though, so I’m throwing in the towel for a big race, at least for now, and I’ll just focus on staying healthy and injury-free.
This is where my mini rant comes into play. I think we’ve all seen things like this on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest. (phrases like, “Sweat every day” etc.)
It grinds my gears because it makes me actually feel guilty for not giving 110%. Sorry if I don’t want to get injured. Sorry if I have taken some time from workouts to devote to my child. Sorry sorry sorry… well I shouldn’t be sorry, and it’s silly for me to feel guilty about such things.
Workouts. Eat good (mostly healthy) food. Be happy. (Of course, I would also add “drink beer,” but to each her own.) The pic is from last night’s happy hour at Taco Mac. Cheers to 35-cent beers!! I got Lagunitas IPA.
- Got any races on your calendar?
