Today was great. I managed to run 3.6 miles in 50 minutes and feel great, though my legs are a bit like jello. I'm excited to hit 4 miles soon but starting to wonder how often in a week I'll be able to run the full amount when I run for a long time, such as an hour and a half or two hours with a little baby. I'm hopeful that as I run longer, Lillian will be sleeping longer and able to sleep through my run. Otherwise I'll have to wake up really early and run before Steve leaves for work while Lillian is asleep or at night after he gets home. I don't like the idea of having to get up too early when my baby sleeps from 10pm to 8am pretty much every night, but I'll do what I have to do.
Today we tried to walk Pica and take Lillian in her Snugli and hike in the bush behind our house. It didn't go over very well. Lillian was too cold and screamed most of the time, and Picasso wouldn't walk properly and had to be stopped every few minutes. Next time Steve and I agreed that we'll use Picasso's haltie whick keeps her much better behaved and Lillian will be bundled up more, though with the amount of layers she's wearing I don't know if that is physically possible but I'm sure it will work, though with the jogging stroller we'll be able to run on the bush trails and once you get there the wind should be better.
Tomorrow my mom arrives for the week before Lillian's Baptism on Sunday, so hopefully I'll still be able to run a lot this week.
