Another tough morning on the treadmill--but after all the melted chocolate I consumed yesterday, I knew I HAD to stick it out! I'm not sure why this week's morning runs are harder than usual--the mileage is the same, but it may be that I'm not getting quite enough sleep. This week has its own challenges, as eldest daughter and I are going to an open house at the HIGH SCHOOL she will enter this coming August (a mere 7 months from now!). I went to a parents' meeting at her current school last night to learn more about the registration process, and I'm fairly sure my parents did not have it this hard back in the day. Going from a small, faith-based private school to a large public high school will require a good deal of effort, but we'll get there.
The point of all that rambling is that my running may very well be my salvation this week, as it definitely de-stresses me. Just wish I had some extra energy reserves to power through. Thank goodness for great songs shuffling through the iPhone this morning!
