This week, for the first time in weeks, I ran on the treadmill. Not just once, but TWICE!
Why? We had some SERIOUS thunderstorms. And as much as I don’t reallllllly mind running in the rain, thunder and lightning scare me. So when I woke up two days in a row to t-storms, I opted to keep up my running streak and hop on the treadmill.
This benefited B, because both days the kids were awake when I was on the mill and B was able to sleep in. I got them breakfast ready and then started running. This meant my run was more of an interval run, since there were several times I had to get up, get LM water, break up a fight, etc. But it beat being poured on or hit by lightning!
Here’s what the week looked like:
And here are some highlights from the week:
On the days it wasn’t rainy, we had some beautiful fall weather. It was 77 and sunny on Friday, so we made sure to take a long walk!
Look at this scenery. I love it.
One morning, after I got back from a run, FW and LM wanted to go out too. I took a turn running around the block with each of them — and it made me so happy!
Unfortunately, the weather is going to turn colder this week. Take a look at yesterday vs. the rest of this week’s outlook:
Some questions for you:
- Do you run in thunder and lightning?
- Has it turned cold near you?
