… Sometimes you just need to sleep in.
It’s been a long, long week. A “getting home at 11:00 and eating super at midnight some nights kind of week.”
But that didn’t stop me from having big plans for Saturday morning. I wanted to race — just a local 4 mile. The weather was nice and cool for mid-June, and after a few weeks of decent running I was looking forward to seeing what kind of time I could run.
On Saturday when I woke up 28 minutes after the race had already started let’s just say I was a little bummed.
But I was also still exhausted. Instead of getting up and going for a solo run on a beautiful morning I rolled over and went back to sleep. It happens sometimes. 😉
I’ll just have to live vicariously through some of the amazing runners competing in the Olympic Trials currently underway in Oregon.
Is anybody else busily following Internet coverage on their phone or watching on TV when you get a chance? Just me?
How about that decathlon WORLD record yesterday? Or the fab 3 in the women’s 100 hurdles? Or the crazy tie for 3rd in the women’s 100?
I’m not sure how I find time for this when I’m barely managing to fit in eating and sleeping amongst work. It only happens every 4 years though.
I told my husband this is my “March madness.” He will just have to put up with my undeterred interest in following track and field.
In farm news, things continue on busy as ever. As I alluded to above, we’ve been putting in some long days. Some of it was catch up, some caused by inclement weather, and some from chopping hay until early Friday morning.
I also had a scare on Friday morning when I couldn’t find one of my calves. He’d gotten out of his hutch overnight, which a newborn doesn’t usually manage. I suppose someone hadn’t fastened his yard quite right. After some careful looking I found him where we always find runaway calves. He was nestled quietly under heavy brush and forest cover.
It’s an instinctual thing I think. They want to hide from predators somewhere safe until mom comes to find them.
In this case that mom was me!
As I write this I can’t believe we only have a week left of June. Summer slips by so quickly doesn’t it?
Happy June Dairy Month, and Happy Olympic Trials — for those of you die-hard running fans like me. 🙂
