It’s nearly 7 a.m. now and I am just sitting in bed on the computer. Normally I am up and dressed and getting YaYa to daycare (it?s Spring Break this week). Last night, though, I slept so lightly that it feels like I slept all night with my eyes open. My eyes just burn from the light and my head hurts.
About 3 a.m., I heard rumblings downstairs. We have another kid spending the night, and my responsible Mom-self listened to check the footstep pattern and discern who was awake. After a trip to the bathroom, they returned to the couch (I think?). I went back to sleep. Later, at about 5 a.m., I heard the dog up jiggling his collar just outside my door. Ugh! He is supposed to sleep in his crate so that there are not any extra gifts left on the carpet. I got up to let him outside.
So, by the time the alarm sounded at 6 a.m. I was far from ready to get up. I pulled the covers over my head and signaled to my husband that it was time for HIM to get up (he had a training session at 8a.m.) Before leaving to work, my dear husband arrived at my side with a hot cup of coffee. I faked a smile, as he is normally the one still in bed and I am on the way out early.
TGIF! It is good that today is a rest day because I need it. One more day of work – then it looks like some harder training weekends are ahead of me beginning with this one. My weekend runs consist of an 8 mile pace run on Saturday & 17 miles long on Sunday. I’ve trained for 9 marathons before this one, but have not used Hal’s programs before. The pace/long combo is definitely more challenging (especially with the increasing miles).
Today, I just don’t care about anything. I’m wasted – and I wish my head would stop pounding. I hate migraines and I don’t want this to become one. So, Please be nice to me; today – I am breakable.
