Fist bumps are wonderful!

Apparently our Garrison Commander visited the Child Development Center (CDC) today, and visited Thomas' classroom. Well, Thomas likes giving fist bumps to everybody and anybody, and if you're leaving the room or he's leaving the room, you'd better be prepared to give him a fist bump. So the ladies in Thomas' room at the CDC said the Colonel was saying how cute Thomas was and everything and they were getting ready to leave and Thomas went up to him (the COL) and said "Bu. Bu." (Which is Bump. Bump.) The Colonel was like, "oh how cute" and the ladies in the room said, no, he wants to give you fist bumps. So the Colonel bent down and gave Thomas fist bumps!! Oh to have been there to see it! Thomas is definitely getting quite a little personality and he's such a joy to our lives!

Wednesday Wrap-Up

It's been a crazy week and I didn't get my Marathon Monday post done, so I'll call it Wednesday Wrap-Up this week. Same post, just a few days late!

My running this past week started off ok and went downhill from there. But life gets in the way sometimes and some miles are better than no miles! Here's my recap of this past week's training. . .

Monday – On the schedule (OTS): 5 miles
                What I did (WID): 3.6 miles – I didn't get up with my alarm so I ended up running after work, and I only had time for 3.6 miles before having to do end-of-day mommy duties.

Tuesday – OTS: Rest or XT (cross train)            
                 WID: My friend/CrossFit trainer had been sick and didn't make it to the gym. Since I was there, I decided I should still do a workout and I got on the rowing machine and did 2500 meters in a little over 12 minutes. Nice short total body workout!

Wednesday – OTS: 7 miles        
                      WID: 4.5 miles – Again, I didn't get up in the morning and I ended up having to run after work again.

Thursday – OTS: 4 miles
                  WID: Nothing. Again. I haven't gotten a Thursday run in for almost a month.

Friday – OTS: Rest or XT
              WID: Rest. We had a ceremony with an early formation and then work got crazy and I didn't leave the office until almost 1 so I didn't get to go to the gym.

Saturday – OTS: 17 miles
                  WID: Sat on a bus for 3 hours, marched a short parade, ate lunch, and sat on the bus for the 3 hours home. Formation was at 0430. Once we got back, we had family fun time and went bowling.

Sunday – OTS: Rest or XT
               WID: Ran 5.8 miles. I wanted to get at least something in this weekend. I had planned on getting up and getting a couple hour run in before church, but that didn't happen so I ran in the afternoon after we got home from church.

Total miles for the week – Scheduled: 33, Actual: 13.9. Yeah, not so good, but again, some miles are better than no miles!
Total miles run for this marathon training cycle so far – 158.4

I'm ok with how this week went training-wise. I'm starting to finally get it through my head that life gets in the way sometimes and you do what you can when you can. I still have 6 1/2 weeks until my marathon.
