A 5k While Baby Sleeps

A 5k While Baby Sleeps

Last night I set my alarm for 5:15am.
Then I changed it to 6:00.
Then 6:15.

This morning, I got up at 7:00. Not enough time to run before JRoo got here. Darn it. Why am I so lazy?

She took her first nap at 9:15 today, and I wasted no time hopping on the treadmill, except those minutes wasted when I couldn’t find my running shoes. ??

I figured I had 30 minutes.

I hopped off and checked on her at every mile because I recently gave my monitor away and was afraid I wouldn’t hear her, although she is in the room next to the exercise room. But the droning of the treadmill and THREE fans I have going makes it difficult to hear her tiny cry.

The beautiful, sweet angel slept 2 hours.

So in that time, I ran 3.1 miles in 35:54.

And then I actually got a shower and did my hair and makeup.


She’s awake now. It’s time for another kind of running!

How do you sneak runs into your busy day?

  1. Awesome! Way to go JRoo, good, good, girl. And holy cow what a sweet photo. I get up at 4:30 to get my run/workout in. Borderline obsessive? Maybe.
