We have plans tomorrow night, the night I have been doing my mid-week run. Since I have only been running 2X a week, its not such a good idea to skip it. I decided earlier today that I should actually run 2X midweek in addition to this weekend, because I think (if I remember my last conversation with my running partner) we were going to try to do a 6-miler this weekend. So I should run today and Thursday, with my longer run on Saturday or Sunday.
This morning started off with another early morning wake-up. Unfortunately, Brooke appears to have become extremely sensitive to noises in the morning and waking up with even the smallest things. She used to sleep until 7AM, but lately its been closer to 6AM. Last night I didnt get in bed until 11PM, and she woke up at 6:20 this morning.
Her early wake-ups make for a long day. By lunchtime we had been playing for 6 HOURS already and her mood hit a sour note. She spent most of lunch crying in her high chair and went down for her nap in a cranky mood. She woke up great, but didn't sleep long. And her mood again went sour later in the day.
On the nights I run, Jeff puts Brooke to bed so I can get out around 7. For the past few nights she has been crying when he tries to take her to bed and calling for "mama" instead. On and off, sometimes we force her to go with Daddy, sometimes we let her win. Because of the sour mood, I knew tonight she wasnt going to let Daddy put her down ... and I was right. I brought her up to bed and she had a horrible time going down, which is unusual for her. She didnt want to read books, then she did. She cried when I told her it was time to sleep and insisted that we "rock" instead. I finally put her in bed and didnt get downstairs until after 7:30.
Its hard enough going out for a run after a long day, but going out at 7:30PM, and then not eating dinner until 8:30PM is just too much for me. So I didnt go for my run after all :(
