Chillin' at the Pool

Well...I did it. I went to Tarjay and bought the kiddo pool *children rejoicing*! Now, between rainstorms, the kiddos rush outside to sit in the pool. Miss Peach is beside herself...The Little Man is a bit more cautious about the whole idea. Something tells me this thing will be well worth the $9.99 I spent on it!

On the running front...I ran 8 miles on Sunday morning. Five miles normal pace, followed by one mile fast, one mile normal, one mile fast:o Doing four miles easy tomorrow morning, followed by five miles worth of fast slow on Wed. morning. Yeah, I'm tired just writing it...What have you been up to?

  6. I've been meaning to run out and get the boys a pool too. That was $9.99? It looks really nice. And big! Wow!
    I haven't run since last Tuesday due to a migraine and some flooded basement issues. Ugh. I am planning on going today. Hopefully.

  14. My mom bought my kiddos an inflatable pool too...well worth it. They love it!

    Have I said how much I admire your discipline? I can't even talk myself into getting on the treadmill lately.

  15. I bought one too this year.. but in my mind it has to be 95 to justify it, so it is sititng in the box in the garage.. I am sure we will get it out one of these weeks.
