In other news I barely managed to run 4 days last week. The weather is back to cold and gross so I was only able to take peanut out once. The other weekday I snuck out after mrp got home from work milking the daylight for all it was worth! I had plenty of time for 4 miles, but I'm not a big fan of running on the roads at that time because a-holes are in a hurry to get home and drive like maniacs on my twisty turny hilly street. I was a glowing bright pink beach ball out there, but all it takes is some jerk on a cell phone or eating a big mac and I'm diving in a ditch. So, it kind of takes the fun out of the run a bit when you're constantly assessing the jump-in-worthiness of the ditches.
Oh, and then the weekend was crazy! On Saturday mrp and I put on our Pheasant Valley farmer hats and had a meeting with a farmers market board to try to get them to take us on for a Saturday market. That would be so sweet! I still managed to get in a solid six and still get back in time to make it to my last prenatal yoga class of the series at my local yoga center. My mother-in-law gave me a 5 class pass for xmas. So nice!
Yesterday, I had tons of work and then a baby shower for the fab Jen C. When I got home mrp had also just arrived with peanut asleep in his truck. I totally had given up on a run for the day, but mrp insisted--"GO!" He said. "Just get out and do 3 or 4 miles." So, I did. And I'm so happy. The sun was still shining even at close to 5 o'clock and there were no a-holes and no ditch-diving strategizing. Just me, the road and a little bit of winter sun.
