Today was what I would consider a pretty perfect day. David is officially on PTO, and I took today off (having worked 10 straight days in a row... I know, cry me a river) so we could have one relaxing day together before the holiday craziness begins.
I slept in until the glorious hour of 7:45 at which time I drank copious amounts of coffee while catching up on blogs. After a few hours of this, I started convincing myself that I wanted to go for a 10 mile run. But these guys were killing all my running mojo.
I did eventually get out the door, David and the two boys in tow, to run 10 hilly miles. It was really humid from all the rain we've been having (and are still having), so I'm going to blame my sluggishness on that. The first five miles were up and down (hills) but I was able to keep sub 10 minute miles the whole time. The last 5 miles? Not so much. I stuck with it though and pulled it out. Roscoe ran the last two miles with me, and Max joined me for the last half mile (he's not much of a runner).
I covered 10 miles in exactly 1:40!
All four of us went home, sweaty and happy. While the boys made themselves comfortable on the couch, David and I got to cleaning since we've got family coming into town tomorrow. After practicing for a few hours (getting ready for that audition in January...) and a trip to the grocery store, I made the most amazing vegan Asian type dinner ever.
I even surprised myself by how good it turned out. You can find the recipe for noodles and kale here. I 'beefed' it up a little with some more veggies, but you'll get the picture.
Up on tomorrow's schedule: some downward dog (yoga).
