1- I should clarify my comment in my last post about so many runners becoming bikers and swimmers. I was talking about the people who are developing a passion for these other sports, not those who do them to cross train. I am all for cross training and have (and use) a bike to prove it. I just can't imagine myself becoming passionate about it like I am about running, but I admire people who tackle all three sports. 2- I did my speedwork on the treadmill yesterday and man did I need that run! It was the first time I have cried during a regular old run. It was just that kind of day. I could go on and on about the things that were bothering me, but what really put me over the edge of sanity is I am starting to think someone took my 4-year-old princess while she was sleeping recently and replaced her with a screeching, squealing little person with a crazy amount of energy and attitude who is smart beyond her years, which is awesome sometimes but was not such a good thing yesterday.
