The Dreadmill

101


Yeah, so, I didn't get up at 5:30 this morning when my alarm begged me to. I had to keep telling it to be quiet, but it wasn't getting the idea. So, after hitting snooze about 6 times I got up, got dressed and got some breakfast before the kids got up. Oatmeal with brown sugar and flax seed. Yum!

I ran Brianna to school, we ended up being about 10 minutes late cause she was dawdling. I came home and put of running again. I kept telling myself that it's just 3 miles and I can do it any time I want. I picked Brianna up, raced home, and got Caleb on the bus for school just in time.

After eating a banana and drinking some H2O I finally decide that I'll go for my run. The only thing is, Grandma (Jason's momma) and Jonathan were gone so I'd have to run on the dreaded treadmill. I hate that thing.

I start running.... Dusty whines and cry barks for the first 10 minutes. I stop it and tell her to shush. I start it back up, 2 minutes later Annabelle finished her food, so I stop it again and get her some milk and some more food. I start back up, Dusty is whining again, even louder this time. URGH! I stop and tell her to shush, get Annabelle some more food, fix Brianna's show, get my ipod and get back on the treadmill. I put my music on loud so I wouldn't have to listen to Dusty whine. I start rocking to Paramore and I hear Brianna, "Mom! It's your song!!!" She was watching Igor and "I've got a woman as big as a house" comes on. I love that song, it cracks me up. :) So, I listen for the length of the song and start up again. At this point I've gone from going 5MPH running to 4MPH walking. I started losing interest in the run. I finished my run going 6.5MPH, sweating like a pig, and promised myself that I would get up at 5:30 from now on so I wouldn't have to deal with the distractions and I could run in peace.

Then Grandma came home and I told her all about it and she says, "OH! If I would have known you could have run right now. I thought you did it this morning." Yeah, I wish I would have waited and gone when she came back, but oh well, next time.
