There are few things as sad as

a sick baby. I’ve been getting about 4 hours of sleep for the past couple of nights. Poor Sam has tested RSV positive and is absolutely miserable. He does seem better today than yesterday. I am just hoping this does not last the 2 weeks that I keep reading about. I think I will go nuts from lack of sleep. This has also put my exercise schedule on hold. I do plan on doing some yoga today, if he takes a nap after big brother goes to school. Sol is in afternoon kindergarten, so he will be going to school in about an hour and half.

I am very much afraid that this could lead to Sam getting pneumonia or bronchitis. All I can do for now is to pump myself full of vitamin C and make sure to keep nursing him as much as he will let me.

I am paying for it

I have slacked off horribly for the past week. I paid for it today when I got my arse up to go running. I completed Week 3, Day 1. I did it. It was not easy. I only did 1.64 miles and was feeling far more winded than when I completed the 2.45 miles a week and a half ago. Bleh. This was a harsh reminder that I need to stay focused and on track. It really doesn’t take long to get out of the groove. That is it for now. For tomorrow’s cardio, I will do some jump roping and walk to the store. That will be an approximately 3 mile roundtrip walk. Should be interesting as I will be pushing the baby in the stroller. It will be our first big walk together. Of course, if it is raining, I will have to put off the big walk until some other time. In which case, I will do push-ups and sit-ups instead.

A Quick Update

I haven’t had much time to get on the computer and blog. So, I am just writing a quick update as to how I have been doing.

I have finished Week 2 of C25K. I am taking my time with it. I have also been running with a friend who just started the C25K program, so I have been going back and forth between week 2 and week 1. I kind of like that. It really makes Week 1 seem like cake hehe. I have started to think about adding in a 4th run every week that is just a 1 mile run. It is not on the program, so I will have to figure it out on my own.

I did a pretty good run today. I was slowed down for a few blocks by a massive cloud of gnats. There were so many I had to cover my nose, mouth, and eyes. It was annoying. I will try to avoid that area in the future. In any case, according to http://www.mapmyrun.com, I ran a total of 2.45 miles. Yay me! That website is a pretty awesome tool.

Anyway, that is it for now. I need to get some sleep before I have to get up for a baby feeding.
