I still have the Valentine Card that YaYa gave me last year up on the box outside my office door. It says, “Have an Incredible Valentine’s Day” and has a picture of the family from the movie “The Incredibles”. I am the Mom, or Elastigirl, of our family. Elastigirl has the ability to stretch in order to take care of all of the required family duties and take care of her own desires/goals as well. She’s a character that I can relate to well. Call me “Elasta” for short.
This Valentine’s Day Tom and I woke up to find our littlest Valentine snuggled right between us. That is how it goes when you have kids. Our children have this built-in radar that sends them back to their origins like a honing device whenever one of us so much as thinks a romantic thought. My husband must have been dreaming of Valentine’s Day smooches.
We don’t usually do up Valentine’s Day (which is fine by me); I’d rather have flowers given to me “just because” rather than because some holiday says that it should be this way. And, I’ve certainly eaten way too much chocolate in the past few weeks. I worked hard to work off those pounds of chocolate today.
I did Yasso 800s on the mill for 3-miles. With one, of the three, miles as a warm-up, this didn’t amount to many repeats. It was just too short of a run. I was able to get 3 x 800m in by taking the last repeat right up to the end of the 3rd mile.
