Best Husband Eva

Still sick. My dear husband called me up today offering to take the three girls out so I could have some peaceful rest. Once he told me this I decided I better take a nap to rest up for my "peaceful" time, so I talked the girls into watching a little Spongebob in my bedroom while I dozed in and out of consciousness. I know, not the best mom - a little selfish, well actually a lot.

For my peaceful time I decided to go for a run. I don't think this is what my husband quite had in mind, but my logic is that I need to sweat out some of the crud that has lodged in my head and chest. It was a hard run, much slower than my last and I sweated MAO (I wish). Seriously though, I thought I was going to pass out, and my lungs hurt so bad! When I was done, sweat was actually pouring down my face into my eyes. Weird - I only did three miles, between 9 1/2 to 11 minute pace, and I didn't have this type of sweating with my previous run which was longer and at a faster pace. I followed it up with a nice soak in my new tub, solo this time.

I'm hoping I feel better tomorrow so I can run a decent time for Nancy's Nine on the Ninth, if not I may need to hold off until Sunday to do this race. I;m excited about this run though because I have a hot pacer and cool trainer.
So after three hours of quiet time, the family arrived home. Chuck spoiled the girls sufficiently with princess makeovers at the local strip mall and and a new cell phone for the teenager. Best of all he brought me home a bottle of wine to help with the sore throat. What a guy.
