Isn't it Ironic

It's the first week of my training program and I am super motivated to run, and to run hard. Today, for the first time in what feels like months, the sun is shining and it feels warm (relatively speaking). And I can't run. Sophie is sick (double ear infection). My hubby was home with her all day so I could fight for justice in traffic court, so instead of my usual after work Wednesday tempo run, I have to hurry home so he can get to work. These are the days when I wish I had a treadmill.

Instead of running, I think I'll give the triple crown of the Shred a shot - all three levels of Jillian's 30 Day Shred after Sophie goes to bed. Boo hoo. Hopefully the super antibiotics will kick in (this is her second ear infection in three weeks) and we can resume the regular schedule soon.

"My hubby was home with her all day so I could fight for justice in traffic court" - classic!
Sorry Sophie is sick! And I hope you kicked Jillian's butt!

Sick kiddos are the worst, you feel so helpless. I hope she's feeling better soon ... for everyone's sanity (check Craig'sList for a cheap, used treadmill, perhaps?)

Awww, sorry to hear Sophie's been sick, hope she's feeling better and the mojo has stuck around long enough for you to want to run again!
