Posts from the ‘Not running today’ Category


Whew! I’m tired! It’s been a looong day! On my own with all 3 kids all day and the boys are potty training (ugh!) they are not getting it! and they didn’t nap. so of course, no running for me today. wont get to all week. keli will be gone everyday getting donations for this benefit. I guess I could get up at 6 and run but I am NOT a morning person and then to be on my own with all 3 kids all day would be too much. Got to see what it means to “do calves” yesterday. Tried to learn how to “flip” them but i’m not strong enough so I just tackle them. I spent a lot of time on the ground and took a few dives through the mud. Also got my head ran into a pole. ouch.

Keli & Brayden

My amazing mini chocolate cream pies

My little helpers.



Brayden was there too but I didn’t get a picture of him.

Damian said the pie is good..I can’t eat it because i’m doing the World Vision 30-hour famine..

oh. and I don’t get to run today..Keli left to go to the hat at 8 this morning. I was tempted to run though while the kids were all sleeping-but I didn’t. (Just a short run!) Not sure that Keli would approve of me leaving the kids home alone. If they were my kids I would do it in a hearbeat. (Would that make me a bad mom?)

No running again today. This really sucks. As for that storm we were supposed to get…we didnt get it..until this morning that is. I got up this morning expecting to see lots of snow. Yeah- that didnt happen. It has now been snowing since yesterday morning, but it hasn’t amounted to much. The power went out at 11:15 this morning and just came back on 15 minutes ago. Keli insisted on driving herself to the doctor to get some more muscle relaxers..I told her Iwould drive her (she can barely move!) but she said she refused to take the kids out in this weather..she also refused to call anyone to come and drive her..stubborn..I told her Iwould be livid if she didn’t phone when she got there..she phoned..and I gave her strict intructions to phone when she was leaving..Damian woke up screaming..guess that means i’m done on here..better go get him..

Didn’t run today. I wanted to but it snowed all day and we are in a blizzard warning..also I didn’t feel right leaving Keli with all 3 kids so I could go run..she’s done something to her back and can barely move. She says it a muscle spasm and there’s nothing you can do? I don’t understand it but I do know she is in an immense amount of pain. She did take some muscle relaxers and went to bed early. I am keeping Tanika and I told her I would get up with Brayden. I haven’t let her do much of anything today other than watch Tanika when we went to playgroup but if I had known she was in that much pain I would have taken Tanika or stayed home. I did have to leave her with all of 3 of them for about 20 minutes while I went out and brought wood in and I could hear Brayden crying/screaming and her saying she couldn’t pick him up..made me feel bad for leaving her alone with them but I wasn’t about to let her go out and bring wood in. So that is why I didn’t run today-Keli’s back and this weather.

Not running today. I have figured out that the reason I kept getting sick was because I was doing too much. How do I know this? After taking 2 weeks off and doing absolutely nothing now I can run 7 miles and not get sick. Before I would run 1 mile and get sick. So anyway, I am taking it slow. Only doing long runs (5+ miles) 2 days a week and short runs 2-3 days and taking at least 2 rest days. I DO NOT want to get sick again. So I went to Kindersley today and got running tights. My legs get so cold in this wind and then when I come in and start to warm up they swell and itch. Like the worst itching you’ve experienced..I’ve had hives-this is worse than hives.
