Plan? What Plan?

You know what they say about best laid plans?

That is how I feel with my running schedule lately. These past two weeks it has been like a freight train came through our home just as we thought we had this parenting thing down.

Our poor little guy is going through a huge developmental leap, somehow caught his first cold despite neither of us being sick, and is cutting two bottom teeth. He is not a happy camper and I can't say I blame him. I am near the end of my candlestick too. I keep telling myself we just need to ride it out and I am trying to go with the flow.

Needless to say, I can't always make it out to run because either he is inconsolable, I am dead tired, or it is below -25. I didn't factor this in when I developed my master plan to get back into running.

So what is the new plan?

I think I will just hit reset and work through this new baby stage day by day. I am still running a 10k in April, but I am getting used to the idea that it will be a fun run with no solid pace goals. The "to complete" race is new to me.

I saw this quote on Pinterest and it spoke to me. It pretty much sums up parenting for me right now. I am at the point where the universe is saying don't worry you can handle this.  I am calling on all my race mantras to get me through each day : )


  1. Sorry to hear you've had a rough few days. It's so hard when they're sick and teething! Breaks your heart and there isn't a lot you can do. Hang in there and remember to be kind to yourself.
