Color me crazy

Work is chaotic! right now.

Plus it is Easter and I have the cutest little girl who is so excited to do Easter things and decorate cookies and color eggs.

All this is to say, I am a little stressed, so naturally, I decided to add another 13.1 walk/run into the mix. Chicago Rock n' Roll here I come....

5K #2

This morning we left the house at 6am. In case you didn't know, that is early for a Sunday morning. We then drove 1.5 hours to participate in a small town's high school track and field fundraiser 5k.

Our intent was not to do two 5ks in sequential weekends, but March 5k pickings were slim for a Sunday mornings and I came up with the idea to do monthly 5ks at the end of February. Also, Audrey has dance class on Saturday mornings, so we must do all of our 5ks on Sunday morning.

Our time did not actually improve, it stayed just about the same. I am considering this a bit of a win for us. This course was much more difficult. It was advertised as having some "nice hills" - nice is not the word I would have picked for the hill on mile 3. It was darn near mountain climbing.

Also, we came up with a "training plan" which consists of going for a family run/walk every Sunday morning. In between Ryan and I will try to fit in a bit more exercise individually when we can. It is far from ideal, but it is much better than nothing. All things considered, from couch potato to 2 5ks in two weekends, I think we are doing pretty good.
