Saturday = Prolonged Operate Working day

For the past ~14 months or so, I have been undertaking extended runs on Saturday. Until a) on family vacation b) injured or c) in major taper method, I have operate double digit operates mainly just about every Saturday.

I am applied to these operates, and I Really like these runs. I love the by itself time, I adore the challenge, and I adore putting on supershoes — I only crack them out for extensive runs and speedwork, and come across them so a great deal exciting to run in.

So: here we go! This Saturday very long operate was a tiny little bit specific since it was 20 miles, the initially of 3 in a row just before my race.

4:30 Up, examine, program the working day a little bit (and update previous night’s time log!)

5:30 HEAD OUT!!! WhatsApp chat with Coco prior to I go away (she is 12 hrs in advance so winding down her times as I start mine!)

I remain in the neighborhood due to the fact J is with C in Naples for his tournament. A is ready to help G out if/when she wakes up. Temps are just alright (small 70s, 71-73) but it is not humid, which is terrific (and abnormal!). 3 jogging podcasts and an hour of Taylor Swift later on, I am household!

8:30 Property. I shower, drink a Main Electrical power, and try to eat breakfast (oatmeal / pb / dried cherries) even with not staying all that hungry but. G theoretically has tennis at 9, but I request her if she’d do gymnastics make-up at 10 as a substitute (this was self-serving but also type of made feeling since she has an “in-house meet” upcoming weekend). Fortunately she is high-quality with that system.

9:45 Get women to gymnastics, write yesterday’s DITL submit, study some weblogs, answer some e-mail. Also spent 20 min chatting on the mobile phone with another person I function with (she referred to as about a probable recruit to our division. Any ped endo looking through this want to transfer to South FL?).

We give the birthday reward and then G jumps in and starts off actively playing with the other soccer siblings (they have really gotten to know just about every other this calendar year, it’s extremely adorable!!). Josh and I sit on chairs and truly feel grateful that absolutely everyone can now swim.

I pull up OpenTable and look for readily available tables for a family members of 5. We find just one at Deep Lagoon. Drag G/C out of pool (A was hanging out in the space) C showers and G gets a speedy bath.

7:15 Head out to evening meal! I am ultimately hungry immediately after that extended run. I drink a glass of sauv blanc and we enjoy rolls with cinnamon butter, conch fritters and then seafood (I experienced fish with a Mediterranean style sauce, mashed potatoes, and broccoli). Kids experienced stuff from the kids’ menu and everyone was satisfied.
