This is one of those weeks when I wish there were a couple of me to handle all that there is to be done. The home front is always going smoothly, but work is just super busy right now. I feel like I am holding my breath this week, and will be able to exhale deeply on March 1st, when I get to turn my grants in! I could exhale now, but I really need all this adrenaline to carry me through so that I can get everything done. Thankfully, I really like my job.
I am still running strong and swimming strong. Chris sprained his ankle playing basketball on Friday, so now all he can do is swim, which he hates. He thinks my advice of convincing himself that he indeed loves oh so loves swimming is BS. Regardless, I love when we swim together. He swims effortlessly and fast, while I ...keep on trying not to sink (though I proudly swam 700m nonstop last week, onto 1000 this week). Since I am competitive, I push a little harder, which I love.
My little guy is a natural runner. He has such a great stride, lifts his knees, lands on his forefoot and pushes with his big toe! He's got my competitive spirit as everything needs to be a race with him these days. Love it!
I got myself a pair of Nike Frees. I found them with $29 at Nike outlet. Wow, they are amazing, super light and super flexible. Going up the hills on them is much easier if you run on your toes, and don't have a useless heavy heal pulling you back! I am taking it easy with them, though, only 10 miles/wee thus far!
Nothing really interesting to report on. I am so scattered that I commented on a few of your blogs while logged onto the blog I keep from my son. A run would help, I guess, but will have to wait until tomorrow!
