Flexible Friday

It's all about flexibility today.

I have one son with an ear infection and the other son with a lingering cold and a mystery rash  .  .  .  they woke me up all night  .  .  .  I think I got about 3 hours of sleep total  .  .  .  I have 9 miles on the schedule for tomorrow but I'm going to swap it with next Saturday's scheduled 13-miler so my son can go to a birthday party he's been invited to  .  .  .  but it's supposed to rain tomorrow  .  .  .  and  there's the whole issue of the  no sleep thing  .  .  .  so I'll just have to head out early and get it done  .  .  .  the boys' illnesses have already caused me to miss two social events (and I really don't get out that much!) and it looks like I'll miss another tonight  .  .  .  but they need extra cuddle time  .  .  .  so what's a mom to do?

Stay at home. Take care of the boys. Hope they feel better (and hope I can get that run in tomorrow!).

Oh, and register for a few races. Sounds about right: When things are looking sketchy, sign up for a race. Or two. Or -- what the heck? -- three!

What's on your schedule for the weekend? Whatever it is, I hope it's a good one!

flexibility is key. I'm sure you will work things out with your schedule and need for sleep.

Sorry about your sick children. When you run, your legs just might surprise you with energy and rainy days make you feel tough if you're the only one outside!

Oh no, I hope the boys are feeling better soon - for your sake AND theirs!

Good luck with the run!

Hope they feel better and that you get some sleep. It seems when I am the most sleep deprived is when I want to run the most. I swear its the only way I get energy these days :) Chin up Mommy!!

You have a lot on your plate, but it sounds like your run will be great - even on just a few hours of sleep.

Running on low sleep is rough, I know from experience!

I hope your kids feel better soon!
