Monday I woke up early and ran 3.5 miles because, although this was Makayla's last day of school, they didn't have regular class; instead they had a celebratory picnic.
Tuesday I ran as usual, getting in 4.5 miles.
I took Wednesday off as a 'rest' day, but worked for three hours in the yard digging up the brick edging around two of my flower beds.
Thursday I woke up early and ran 3.5 miles again, only this time it was in the rain. Thankfully, it was a much warmer morning and the rain didn't bother me.
Friday was another 'rest' day with three more hours of digging up brick edging around more flower beds. Thankfully, my back handled all the bending, kneeling and lifting.
Saturday morning I manged to fit in 7 miles before taking Makayla to swimming lessons and then going to a church picnic. The notable moment of this run happened as I passed a thicket of weeds. As I ran by, a duck burst out of the tall grasses flying off one way while a rabbit dashed off in the opposite direction. I had the distinct impression I'd interrupted something. I felt like a policeman unknowingly walking by a drug deal or something else nefarious!
Sunday morning I woke up earlier than usual to fit in 4.5 miles since Mondays and Thursdays runs were so short compared to my previous routine.
With Makayla out of school and the weather really heating up, I'm short on convenient times to run - unless I wake up at 4 or 4:30 in the morning. Whatever schedule I do come up with is only going to be temporary anyway, since when the baby is born, I'm going to have to play each day by ear and probably won't have a good set running schedule again until Makayla goes to kindergarten in the fall.
