Three kids + cold weather = Me – getting nothing accomplished and fast.
Change of plans. Get baby C to sleep and set up Chloe and Miles to play together [make sure toys are evenly split so they don’t kill one another] It took two hours to get baby c to sleep. I set up C/M in the upstairs hall so I could see them from my treadmill. Reminded them to be quiet and to NOT come in my room because it would wake baby C.
Got dressed – began running.
I did it – la la la la la la. I’m supermom. Super runner. Take that motivation – I showed you who’s in charge.
10 minutes later Miles enters my room to tell me he is playing Daddy and baby with Chloe and to BEEEEE quiet so I didn’t wake her. Only problem is that he wasn’t quiet and woke baby C. uggghhhh only 1 mile completed.

What I’m trying to remember is – this too shall pass. I won’t always have two little kids and a newborn. I won’t always have to train like this. It won’t always be Christmas time. It won’t always be 19 degrees outside.
I had one of those good days on Saturday. 10 miles with 6 ladies in 19 degree weather [15 kids between us]. My second 10 miler since I’ve had baby c and 4 days before the 6 week mark. I’m proud of my body. I’ll choose to focus on the day I got to run and move past this day I didn’t get to.
P.S. The heat really is broken – sad face. Oh and did I mention I totally overate at dinner and feel gross now? o.k.moving.on.now
