Summer Run Streak, Day #28

Very long day today. Have plans tomorrow to celebrate the end of the busy work season, so we headed out after work to get some provisions. Quite a bit of trouble to handle the two kids in the variety of stores, but I think we did OK. Got home, made dinner, and I headed out for a run.

Got in a bit over three miles at a pretty nice pace. I'm feeling a bit heavier, but I'm not sure if that's the fact that I'm carrying a bit of weight (just up three pounds or so, and I think partly because of the lack of sleep.) It was also pretty hot and humid out today, so I think that had an impact on my legs.

The infant has been temperamental the last couple of days, and it is taking an emotional toll on my wife. The kiddo just fusses a lot, and it's really tough to soothe her. Sometimes I can get lucky and get her to sleep in the wrap, but tonight even that failed. Eventually I just rocked her, swaying on the balls of my feet, until she fell asleep on my chest. Now I don't dare move her, though, because I don't want to wake her. Fun.

This weekend is going to be tough. Folks over tomorrow after work, then a birthday part for one of Daughter #1's pre-school classmates, and a half marathon on Sunday. Fortunately I'll be able to recover from my weekend on Monday!
