The good, the bad and the CRAZY!



What's up? You know I'm cute!
You know you are still hormonal from pregnancy when you cry at TV shows where a baby and mother are separated. And people this was Star Trek, not a super girlie show. I am at that hormonal stage where anytime I hear about a baby being hurt, or separated from his/her mom, or a mom hurting a baby I just want to cry my eyes out. I love my girls and I would give my life for them in a heartbeat, and I don't understand how any parent wouldn't feel the same. The very thought that a baby could be born into a family and not be wanted or loved just breaks my heart. I don't want to think about it anymore because it makes me so sad, and my crazy horomones can't take anymore.

One, lucky for me hormone-wise after I saw my doctor yesterday, he agreed that we are going to watch my thyroid more this time. I am getting blood work done next week just to check my iron and thyroid. So now I have to figure out how to get this done with my two babies. Maybe I'll ask a girlfriend to come with me or do it on my husband's lunch break. Lucky for me we have lab very close to both my and my husband's offices so I can get him to come with me if no one is available. Maybe I will just do that.

On a funny note, when Steve got home last night Lillian ran up to him and said "hand". He took her hand and she said "up stairs" and started to lead him up the stairs. She only does that when she wants to go to bed. So he went with her and she was in bed by 7:40pm, not her usual 8:30pm. Funny little lady.

Finally I had an AMAZING run yesterday! I did my first Speed run. Here is the breakdown:
  • 1 mile @ 5.0mph (slightly under forever pace)
  • 3 sets of 0.5 miles @ 5.9mph followed by 0.3 miles @ 4.5mph
  • 1 mile @ 5.0mph (slightly under forever pace)
Honestly I felt good but it didn't hurt as much as I expected it to. For the start and end speed I went conservative so I wouldn't be too tired before the speed work started, but that may have backfired. The running speed felt hard the first one, because of the change in speed but after walking it wasn't so bad. If I'm being 100% honest I could have done a 4th set. I also feel that my walking speed may have been a bit slow, since I was fully recovered in less than 0.2miles. So maybe we can reduce the walking distance or speed it up a bit. Part of me was nervous about this run because I did the math beforehand about how long it should take to complete and it was over 50 minutes, and that can be a long time for my girls. Katrina really didn't want to sleep either because she napped during our morning errands in the car, but luckily Lillian was so exhausted sill from the party on Sunday that she went down for her nap from 1-4 no problem so I could wait for Katrina to sleep from 2-4pm. Next week will be another tempo run and I have lots more usual runs to do this week! Wish me lots of good baby naps!
