It has, so far, been a bad week for running.
A very bad week.
Monday, little Monkey still had a fever, running during the day was not option. The only thing I could do was have him sit on me (and I’m not complaining, he was sick and cuddly and I want all the cuddles I can get, he is growing way to fast, see evidence below).

Me and Little Monkey a few weeks ago:
Tuesday, little runner boy’s fever was gone, but he was still whingy. I tried to go for a run anyway with them in the stroller, after 4km I called it a day, they did not want to be in the stroller (which is odd as they usually love the stroller).
Wednesday, me and both of the kids received the flu shot, no running but I did get to go to the gym. I did 20 mins cardio and 40 mins of weights, no running as running on a treadmill hurts and feels nothing like running to me (I’m all about the elliptical).
Thursday, the plan was for me to run as soon as my husband got home, I spent all afternoon dressed to run. But, my husband had to go downtown (boo!) for a meeting so it took forever for him to get home, and by the time he arrived it was dark, wet, cold and everyone was hungry.
On the bright side, the little runners napped today! I got a chance to try out thenew DVD that I just purchased for 10 bucks, Jillian Micheals Yoga DVD, it was only 30 mins, but it felt good.
I hate feeling like yet another week is gone and I have made zero progress.
Tomorrow I’m hoping to work out again when they nap and go for a run when my husband gets home, that’s if it’s not another night of cold rain (I would take -10 or snow over cold rain anyway).
