My kiddos will both be in school from 7:32am -3:10pm. Excitement, panic and an overwhelming wow we made it to this next chapter…….(Yes all you moms with young kiddos your day will come)
My days used to be spent playing all day….now we are off to School
stress free workouts are in my future....
Both girls are in school M-F full time this can mean a lot of things, I will be able to shower without interruptions, come home after my runs and drink water before I have to quickly get onto the next thing the list goes on. As excited as I am I have never have this much time on my hand before. I have to admit as a stay at home mom, runner and a wife of a firefighter, I have a system that works and our battleship fires and runs smoothly most of the time occasionally we have some maintenance issues. I have it down to a system; cutting and preparing food, getting up early to get runs in figuring out how to get in the second run, squeezing in core at swim practices and most important how to stay vertical until 8pm at night which then I literally fall into bed until 5am.
I am pumped for these new chapters but, have to admit I’m a little panicked. I am not good at relaxing; I am always doing 2 things at once and thinking 2 steps ahead. Now I am going to have TIME and I hope I like it. I will admit I have thought about getting a job from 10-2, I could still run and be home for my kiddos but, I am going to give this running 100% this year and it could not be a better year considering it is the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials and I’m going all in.
My main focus will be on rest and recovery and can’t wait to see if it makes a difference in my running and how I feel. I imagine I am going to feel like Sheera and like a fined tuned machine. I hope that’s true and if so watch out world this mama is going to fly; I am excited to find out.
I am not one to promote anything that I don't love and use, so here are some things that I have been testing recently and have grown fond of from my sponsors Adidas and Skratch Labs.
If you don’t want to look like your smuggling raisins while running check out the Adidas sports bra. These are comfortable and makes you look perky, Bonus.

I have grown really tired of smiley gels as they are hard to eat for me and seem to make me really thirsty. I have been using the Skratch Labs Fruit Drops which are chew-able and I have had luck with them before, during and post work out (no stomach issues). Orange is my favorite flavor.
With all my future time ahead I might blog more that once every 6 months.
