Week in Re/Preview

Perhaps, maybe, possibly, feasibly… I’ve found a schedule that works for my summer training? (Is it really “training” if I’m not signed up for a specific event yet? Maybe my summer “maintenance” is what I should call it?)

Anyway… Running at night after the baby goes to bed on Monday and Wednesdays, doing a long-ish run on Friday mornings and running with the baby/stroller on Sunday mornings. Yoga on Tuesdays and Thursdays after the baby sleeps.  I did that last week and it worked really well. Getting in yoga twice a week makes a huge difference in my mental outlook.

Or maybe it was taking Friday off work… This schedule assumes I don’t have to work Fridays, which only continues for certainty throughout June, since I have vacation days I have to burn before June 30. But I honestly believe I would be a better person (physically, emotionally, mentally) if I never had to work on Fridays ever again. Having a day to myself (hell… even just PART of a day, since we brought the baby home from school early that day) made a huge difference in how I felt.

OR… maybe it was getting to go out on a date with my hubby on Friday night. We went to dinner at The D (Andiamo Steakhouse) and followed that up with seeing Green Day’s American Idiot at The Smith Center. It was glorious to be able to have a night out and I’m so grateful my mom came to town to watch Alex so we could have that! I should probably still find a local babysitter so we could have those nights out without making my mom drive from another state to get here, huh?

All I know, is this magic combination of stuff seemed to work really well for me this week and I felt really positive and happy at the end of the week. Not like I was drowning or trapped in a miserable spiral that goes nowhere. Hallelujah!
