Muscle Man was busy so I thought it would be FUN to try to push 90lbs of Little Stud and the HEAVY double Jogger solo. I got the boys snacks and closed the garage door.. Just then I realized one of the wheels was a little flat, URGH!! Not wanting to stop and make the guys wait, I opted to chance it..
The first mile was GREAT, our neighborhood is pretty hilly, and the first mile is mostly downhill. The boys were cute chatting away saying "Hi" to people and pointing out every "Daddy Car" and "Sheriff Car" in site. I am barely strong enough to turn the jogger, and with the semi-flat tire this made for some SLOW turns. First mile chimed 8:11 NICE!! It was time to cross the street and I realized the sidewalk did not have a break in it. I had to stop and lift the front wheel.
I was starting to get TIRED so I gave the boys a BIG PUSH and ran behind the stroller.. Well they loved it and thought it was a game "Do it again Mommy!" I would hear that phrase over and over the next 2 miles.. I could feel my pace slow but I could not do anything about it, pushing and running is tough work.
The Little Studs were too cute
LS#2 to Big Brother who was resting on his legs "Are you tired?"
LS#1 "No I am not tired."
PAUSE.... LS#2 "Are you tired?"
Irritated LS#1 "No I am not tired!"
Mommy "He thinks you are tired because you are leaning on your legs, sit up."
LS#1 to his little brother "Are you tired."
LS#2 "Yeah I'm tired." And on and on....
I added a little loop around a neighborhood so I would end with 3.11. the last bit is a steady incline... The boys cheered me on "Go Mommy Go!" We made it to the top, successful solo Double Jogger performance 28:20 and just over 9:00 pace..
