The first week of Kindergarten was tiring. Well, it was tiring for me. I'm not quite convinced that Dizzle was any more tired than usual. Not that I am shocked. We're talking about a kid who walked approximately 5 miles a day for an entire week when we went to Disney and never took a nap or crashed early.
OK, so back to my point. Kindergarten wiped me out. I thought that having one less kid to manage would free up some time, but instead, I found myself running around like a chicken with its head cut off.
Maybe I had more going on. Maybe I have been slacking all summer. Or maybe, just maybe, my overachiever personality kicked into high gear and I tried to accomplish as much as I possibly could in those 6.5 hours each day. Who knows?
Fine. I know. I did it to myself. I overloaded my days and I struggled to get my runs in. But I DID get them in. Between early morning runs and late night treadmill sessions, I logged 42 miles during my cutback week. But I am going to be honest, it was hard. I'm not adjusted to this new schedule and it's a little overwhelming. Oh, and did I mention that this week I'm scheduled to hit my peak mileage of this training cycle (52 miles)?
I think I need to breathe.
Plus, our schedule gets another shake up today. Doodle starts preschool at 9 a.m. And like Kindergarten, I am sure it will be a blessing and a curse - at least until I figure out how to juggle it all.
Do you think there's any chance of a nap and/or a 26 hour day? No? Me either.
