Whenever I get a cold I realize: this parenting thing requires 100% of a person. And when I've got a cold I'm at 80% at best. So our house slowly but surely gets messier, dishes stay stacked in the sink, and the kids watch way too much television. All because I don't have all my Mom Power.
But today I made a comeback. Though not entirely at 100%, 'surely, I thought 'I'll be at 95% Mom Power. So I ran the school run again. But if my heart rate was any indication, 95% percent was a bit optimistic. Even though my sons almost fell off their bikes from going slow enough for me to keep up, my Polar FT4 kept beeping, telling me I was definitely not 'in the zone'.
So physically speaking this was not a very good run, but on a psychological level it felt great. Going for my first run in a week, made me feel like Me again.
I'm sure my Running Power will do wonders for my Mom Power
