Umm... Yeah... (Starting... Now!)

So I haven't been doing very well with my recent kick to get back on track with running.

And I have tons of excuses for why (and they count since they're mostly baby-related :-) ).

But before Thanksgiving, I did manage to squeeze in TWO runs that week. So that counts for something, right?

The first was a quick 2.8 mile run around the neighborhood on Monday night with the dogs. I was planning on going to the gym for it (and I even brought my bag to work to force myself to do it), but it was so nice out that I decided to do it outside instead.

That, and the puppies always seem to need to burn some energy.

I kept it pretty easy on all of us since it had been a while, so it took us 27 minutes total (just under a 10:00/mile pace).

The second run that week was on Sunday. That time, the pups and I went to Tom Sawyer for some trail running and just about got lost. We ended up doing about 3 1/4 miles before it got too dark on us.

So yeah, that's all the running I've managed since my last blog about getting back on track.

Pathetic, I know.

I'm really hoping to get out and do some more, but things have been pretty crazy lately, and running is at the bottom of the priority list so it's the first to go.

It's supposed to get into the 70's today, though, so I might have to sneak out of work a little early to squeeze a run in before it gets dark.

On a much more positive note, the baby's room is coming along really well! I'll be back with more updates and pictures soon, but this past weekend we successfully hung blackout curtains, picture frames, and I built some book shelves. The ottoman for the glider is completely sanded and ready for staining, and I bought and tested out the stain on the underside of the chair (and it's looking pretty good). I just have to finish sanding the chair in the places that I couldn't get to with the power sander and it will FINALLY be time to stain!
