In other news, I went to sleep last night at midnight. You heard that right- midnight. And I wasn't kept awake by a sick or screaming child. Get this: I just wasn't tired. Bizarre. See, I've had low iron all my life and I usually just deal with it by sleeping more. But, it was starting to get ridiculous. I couldn't even stay awake to put Lillian to bed at 8. I'd put Nora to bed at 7, then just sit down for a bit, but I couldn't get up off the couch to save my life, or even keep my eyes open. After missing family prayer for the bazillionth time, I broke down and bought some iron supplements and it's the craziest thing to have all this energy.
After we watched the Angel's lose last night, I looked at Tyler and said, "well what do you want to do now?" He was astonished.
In other other news, I'm training for the Sahuarita 8-mile Nut Run. I've never run 8 miles before, so this month of training should be interesting. I did 4.25 on Saturday and 4 this morning. My girls HATE the jogger stroller and start whining and complaining after about 15 minutes, so I'm not sure how going the longer distances is going to work. I have zero experience training for a run so I'm just making it up. I looked up a training plan for a 10K, and it suggested switching between long distances and short distances: 3, 4, 3, 5, 4, 6, 3, 4. Like that. Any other tips or ideas? Michelle, Bridget, I'm looking in your direction.
I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that my 4-year-old iPod's battery is just not what it used to be, and only holds a charge for about 5 songs. Maybe the iPod fairy will bring me a new one.
