So, you all remember how I love summer running?
I even wrote a complete post on tips for surviving summer running. . .
But the transition from winter running (mostly) on the treadmill and with increasing temps and humidity = whoa. I’ve had some super tough runs lately.. .
And, oh man, Luke got heavy during the winter. pushing that jogging stroller is no joke now.
But he is also at a super fun stage, where he will tell me “Come on Mommy.” and then clap for me. He’ll also ask me “Are you all sweaty from running, Mommy?” Kid just cracks me up.
Summer is transitioning from running in the mornings on Tuesday and Thursdays to running after work. it is tough. I love running with Luke and Scott but that takes up the whole evening. by the time we get back, it is quick dinner and bedtime for Luke. and Scott and I have to do the same before we crash for bed too.
but I get to sleep in later on Tuesday and Thursday, so that is nice.
And I LOVE family running time. Best part of my day. So, 100% worth it.
I’m starting to increase my mileage on weekends again and it feels good.
I am really liking O2 gold . I feel like it gives me an extra edge for getting that long run done.
I was planning to do a half marathon in the beginning of May but with the new house and moving, I just didn’t have the time on the weekends to dedicate to running. . . now, that I am starting to have that time on Saturday morning and the warmer weather is glorious!
now, I just have to find a race to do. . .
maybe Des Moines again this fall?
but maybe another summer race too. . .
And we will for sure have the whole family at the Le Sueur Crazy Dayze 5K!
How is the summer transition going for you? Any races planned?
Linking up with Becky for Treat Yourself Tuesday because running (even when dying with the jogging stroller) is always a treat for myself.
