Run of the exhausted mommy

I am beyond exhausted. Matty has been sick the past couple days (although doing better now), so I am working off very little sleep. Wednesday night, the poor guy hardly slept at all, and neither did I. I ended up rocking him almost all night. Then last night, he woke up just about every hour in a coughing fit, which woke me up, too. So in the past two nights, I think I've managed about seven hours of sleep.

Nonetheless, I plodded my way around the neighborhood tonight for a little more than two miles. I had to wait until Tim came home from work, so it was dark out, which didn't help with my sleepiness. The run felt icky poo (my eyelids were heavy the whole time, my left shin developed a cramp and I was cranky), but I was glad I finished it when I was done.

I am off to bed now (finally). I have a busy day tomorrow. I am planning a long run, followed by painting a medicine cabinet that has been sitting in our dining room for almost a year. Then I will be going out to dinner with a couple of my new biology friends to celebrate the end of the semester. I can't wait!!

Today's stats:
Distance: 2.25 miles
Time: 25:15
Pace: 11:13 minute/mile

Hope Matty feels better soon. I'm sure you slept like a baby last night!

Now that's determination! Good for you, but I hope you are all rested up. Take care of yourself, too!

I hope Matty is all well soon, and that you can get some sleep!
