Color me exhausted!

This summer is wiping me out! We've been busy, busy, busy, which is great, but the boys have been waking up far too early (like, hours early), which is not. It's all a bit exhausting! Running around with two little boys sometimes feels more tiring than racing.

And speaking of racing . . . last week was my post-Boilermaker recovery week and it went well. I went out for an easy run on Monday and my legs felt tight as can be. By my Tuesday run they'd loosened up some and on Thursday they were back to form. On Saturday, I ran 6 at a nice 9:15 pace with my last mile at 7:45. It felt good to really blast out the last mile after slow running all week! Yesterday I settled on 3 easy miles because I could only get out midday for my run and it was super hot. Recovery week . . . done!

Bring on half marathon training!

First, though, since I need to boogie off with the boys, I'll quickly share some goodies going on elsewhere:

  • I have a new book review up at BlogHer. You can check it out HERE. It's for What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen. A teen book but, well, you'll have to check out the review to see what I thought :-)
  • I also have a giveaway going on over at my other site, HERE. It ends tonight at 11:59pm EST so be sure to enter soon!

Hope you all had a good weekend! Thanks for stopping by.

I remember fitting in running when my kiddos were younger and it is hard! And exhausting. Hang in there, you will persevere. I just know it.

Sounds like a great recovery week - glad those legs are feeling fresh again.

Great week, glad your legs shook out ok. I heard you about the early wake ups... I'm blaming the bright sunshine!
