Summer Run Streak, Day #9

Yet another "one and done" mile tonight.

Had a long conversation with the wife tonight after the kids fell asleep, about how I'm totally run down and thinking that I will have to give up running. I'm just so worn down and having a nightmare of a time fitting in the runs, or anything longer than a mile. I mean, you can't train for a marathon like this. I told her I was thinking about next year, and just not signing up for races. Her retort was that this will be so much easier next year, because the kids won't be as little and will be able to do more.

I know that's true, and I hate to quit on anything like this. So I'll tough out this streak until work is done for the summer, and we'll see how summer goes. Obviously I'm all over the place nutrition wise, too, and I need to get all of that back under control. It's the kind of thing where you don't want to make any huge decisions while completely sleep deprived.

Good mile tonight, comfortable temperature, if a bit humid. Felt like my heart rate was in really good shape, but again, by the time the kids go to sleep my heart rate is winding down for the night, so it's <60bpm. Just tough to get moving when your body is in sleep mode.

Tomorrow is a new day, and the plan is to take the kids to the zoo in the morning to walk around and test out the new double stroller. May also try to pick up breakfast somewhere, as I expect I'll probably be too beat to cook.
