This morning Muscle Man recruited me to his home GYM..AKA land where he got Buff. We spent the morning lifting and toning, my left leg needs some major strength training. Before we knew it hours has passed leaving little time to RUN. My ambitious side hoped to post a Half Marathon today, but with the rain, lack of time, and HEAVY jogger to push we opted for the lowest mileage and ran 1 Mile as fast as we could as a family.
Look at the adorable bib!! Love it.. I wanted to print it and pin it to my shirt, but this was a busy week and I never got to it.. BUMMER!!
Yes Little Stud #2 has Cheetos...it was dangerously close to nap time, the Cheeto Puffs were our way to avoid a major blow up from the almost (late January) terrible 2 year old.
Quick pre-race photo and we were off.. Muscle Man had not run in a few weeks and my legs were a little tired from the home gym lifting...but we were going to TRY our best to post a good mile time.
The puddles were FULL and my feet got wet instantly, time to toss my Asics with the holes in the toes (photos soon it is pretty funny). The double jogger pulled us down the first hill and I could not breathe well with a congested head. YUCK!! We got to the half mile point and I knew we could get a sub 7 minute mile...pretty darn good for a Rainy day while pushing our kids after having worked out for over an hour.
As we approached the next downhill Muscle Man said "I will go ahead but you don't have to keep up, you will catch me on the uphill." I fell behind a little but tried to get my speed back up. One Mile goes pretty quickly. We knew where the finish line was as this is our usual 3 mile training route. I promised Hubby that we would walk back after the mile, so he gave a final PUSH. My boys surged ahead as I trailed 3 steps behind. Garmin Chimed.
Stats for First Virtual (Family) Turkey Trot:
Weather wet and cold. Ready for TURKEY!!
Little studs were awesome...pretty easy to keep them happy for 20 minutes.. But they LOVE LOVE to push on the rain cover, one day the foot will go through I know it. I was so proud of Muscle Man for giving it his all and posting a sub 7 minute mile.
Unleash the kiddos.. When we got home I had 30 minutes to shower, get pretty, change, get the boys dressed, pack for the day, get the veggie tray ready (Muscle Man Stepped in), and buy flowers....SPEEDY!! Pretty sure I moved faster in the house than I did on the road. We were blessed with amazing food and family at the Tall Grandparents house.
