Being a mom comes first.

Monday was my official day of rest after two good, outside runs on the weekend. Mostly I picked Monday because Lillian and I had a play date with my two girlfriends from university who both had babies the same time as me. One baby was born 5 days before mine, the other 1 month and 1 day so literally they are the same ages. We always have a blast together and it's great to watch our kids grown together.

Today I had high hopes of a nice long treadmill run and 25 minutes into it, Lillian woke up. I pushed myself to go to 30 minutes and impressively I ran at 5 miles/hour for 20 whole minutes before I had to stop. That's a new record for me. I'm hopeful that I'll get to run again tonight but it all depends on when my husband gets home. Between the baby, and dishes and having to walk my dog, and my husband wanting to run too it can be really hard to get a run done in the evenings. I really don't like having to wait until the baby goes to sleep at 9pm to run. I'm really beat by then and just want to go to bed. I'll have to wait and see what the cards have in store for me. Right now I'm enjoying watching my baby play in her jolly jumper.
