Sleep Success and a Running Mommy

Last night, the babies slept very well.  We fed them around 6 and then went to our Life Group at 6:30.  I held Miles and our friend, Ian, held Vivienne.  I'm pretty sure that this was the first time that Vivienne has slept at Life Group.  Maybe Ian should hold her every week.  =)

After Life Group, we got home around 9 and put them in their nursery (still buckled into their infant seats).  Surprisingly, they slept until 1 AM.  Whoohoo!  I'm hoping that we have many more nights like this.  Hopefully it wasn't an anomaly.

Today, while our amazing doula, Pam Diamond, was here, I went on my first run in a year.  I went about 3 miles, and it was painful.  I ran an average of about 11 minutes per mile.  That's really depressing considering a ran a half marathon at about 9 minute mile pace 2 years ago.  But I'm so glad that I got out and got my legs really pumping again.  I'm hoping to run more frequently in the future.  Once the babies have good neck control, I can run with them in the BOB stroller.  I'm really looking forward to that.


  1. The slower running pace is the fat burning pace, that's what I keep telling myself, hehe.

  2. Don't worry, you'll get it back. I run with the BOB weekly, and it's quite the handicap. It doesn't feel like it so much at the time (it is so smooth!), but if you get used to it and then run without it, you'll be amazed.
