Three Things Thursday - Sanity Edition

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. I am hoping getting caught up on sleep and getting back to her regular schedule now that we are home from Arizona brings my sweet little girl back, otherwise the treadmill might get worn out.

3- I am going to add P90X into my workout plan starting next week. I am not going to do it every day for the next 90 days because I don't have the time (or more accurately I am not willing to sacrifice the time) it takes to do it every day in addition to my running. Instead, I am going to use it as a cross training tool a few times a week. I am hoping this will force me to be better about strength training and might help me drop those few pesky pounds that keep hanging on no matter how much I run.

  1. Thanks for the the link love!

    Maybe your four year old and my five year old have been reading up on the same stuff. Bedtime has been torturous here!

    Good luck with P90X once I finished, I needed a break. I think I am going to start doing it on the days that I don't run.

  2. Age four is a tough year - in my house it was almost worse than 2, and that's really saying something!
    I hope you like the P90X. I haven't tried it, but I am both intrigued by and afraid of it.

  3. Good luck with P90X and your 4 yo :)!

  4. No matter how my kids behave, I can't do anything but laugh.

    Of course, I don't own a treadmill...

    Glad running was able to restore your sanity. It's helpful like that.

  5. Getting back to normal after a vacation is tough for kids. I'm sure your 4yo will be sweet again :-)

  6. I think a lot of people use the ab stuff from P90X. Good luck!

  7. It must be the same person that swapped my four year old too. She just woke up one day and decided she needed to run this house herself.

  8. I admire people who develop passions for swimming and biking, too. I like to add some swimming and biking as cross-training but I agree that I don't know if I could ever be as passionate about it as I am about running.

  9. I need to cross train - the little bit of P90X I've done was fun! Dude is funny. Enjoy!
