This past week has been busier than I would prefer. My twins are trying to graduate from high school a year early so they have challenging course loads and it’s getting to the time of year where the pressure is really on them. Typically, they don’t like to have me help them with homework. They have finally agreed to accept help to achieve their goal of graduating. I have to dust off my algebra 2 knowledge but I’m happy to be able to help. In other news, my cold is mostly gone. I have some minor congestion remaining, which becomes gross when I run, but can be cleared out with a little effort. I finally got back to my new 2 mile loop yesterday. I ran past the local elementary school for some pull-ups, dips, and a flip and then up and around one of the neighborhood lakes. It was a beautiful day. It felt great to get back to my favorite workout. I ran that loop on Monday morning as well after dropping off my youngest at school but I physically felt much better running it yesterday. I ran single miles the rest of the week. Tuesday, I ran around the neighborhood after work while my youngest rode his bike. Wednesday, I ran after dropping him off at school in the morning. On Thursday, I ran after work around the neighborhood. And on Friday, I ran after work but I ran to the trail from my work building and I love having the chance to do that. I would have liked to run farther but I didn’t have time. Another day. The best part about this week was certainly the weather. The temps have been perfect for running and the sun has been shining. Flowers have been blooming, the grass is getting greener, and trees have started getting their leaves. It really is a great time of year to be a runner.
