a bit of catch up
✔ annabel is sick. not terribly sick, but she has her first official ear infection [yes, i took her to the pediatrician and no, i didn’t look in her ears myself]. she earned a 10 day course of amoxicillin and extra rocking, soothing, and a nap with mom in bed today. thankfully i didn’t have clinic, so i just missed a day of lab work. and really, i’m pretty thrilled that she’s made it through 6 months of day care before her first full sick day + need for antibiotics!
✔ she is also officially crawling. as of today! she had been getting around with a backwards scoot for weeks, but today she finally decided to do things the ‘regular’ way. so, our sick day ended up being a pretty exciting one, too.
✔ i’m kind of getting INTO running again. not just to prove something or get back in shape, but really and truly as a hobby again. i logged some faster miles this weekend, at least according to mapmyrun on my phone [i think that app overestimates pace a bit, but at least it provides me with a basis for comparison with other mapmyrun workouts].
— 3.3 miles with the stroller, moderate hills on saturday at 9:10/mi pace
— 6.9 miles on sunday without the stroller. 8:08/mi for the first three [east campus], then 8:33/mi for the rest [tobacco trail]
i was even inspired by meggie to take advantage of the holiday deal at believeiam. i don’t think there is a specialized paper product that i’m NOT at least somewhat interested in . . . and this sweatshirt looks like perfect comfortable lab wear.
