I'm Flexible Like That

Have you gone for a lovely run this morning?  I haven't.  And I won't.  The kids have the day off for some inexplicable reason, so the run I was kind of sort of planning on is falling by the wayside.

It's not that bad.  I may hit the rowing machine later today if I get the chance, and there is always the core work I am trying to keep up with.  Tomorrow I might walk the dog and then Sunday it will be back to the routine.  (Hopefully.)

In fact, after several weeks of juggling my training plan days -  switching this day's mileage for that, taking rest days when I should be running, running long on short days - I am looking forward to the fact that starting Sunday, I should be back on track.  Barring any sort of surprises, I should be back to the land of training plan check marks instead of cross outs and write overs.

In the meantime, I have to try to figure out what to do with these kids today.  It's mid-February, cold, and snowy out.  I think we all have a touch of cabin fever, but I am at a loss for how to spend the day.  I am not very creative like that.  Tomorrow will be much more fun as we head to the frozen lake to watch a friend do her first (and most likely last) polar bear plunge.  Then later we are invited to still other friends' house for dinner.  Both excursions will be loads of fun.  But what to do today?

The days are long gone when I could just bundle the kids up and drag them along to wherever, knowing that whatever we did would be fun and - on some level - educational for them.  Now they actually have opinions.  Bummer.

Happy Friday!
