June 9th, 2010 – 2 Mile Run
The continued prayer is, “Lord keep me focused. Keep my mind stayed on You. Help me to bring You praise. I know You believe in me. Please help me in my unbelief. Amen.”
Tonight’s was another 2 mile run. It was another Taekwondo night. I intended to run to the studio from the BGC which would have made it a respectable 4 mile run, watch Jordan practice, then run another 2 miles to get home. But Jordan didn’t end up going to the Club today. Instead he went to a neighbor’s house after school and Chris took the day off. So I had to go get Jordan, then go home to get Chris so he could take the kids to class and I ran to the studio from home.
I showed up at class sweaty but very happy because I kept up a 10-minute mile pace for the entire run. I usually stick with a 12-minute mile pace when I’m running my normal 3.65 mile course.
There may be some merit to the shorter workout, just to work on speed.
I should have run back home after class, but Jayda hurt herself at school today and she seemed to want to keep me close.
There will be other days to run, but these days where my kids want me close to comfort them are fleeting and will be over far too soon. So I chose to kiss owies and cuddle my kids while we watched Disney Princess movies.
