The "running" lunch

As eluded to in my last post, my dear, sweet hubby is not too happy about me training for another marathon.  I'll admit....last time it was all-consuming.  I think I've gotten better with each training cycle, but he still begs to differ.  So as to minimize impact to his exercise schedule and for the sake of keeping him sane and healthy, I think I'm going to try to do at least 1 run/week during my lunch break.  This never would have worked at my previous job.  Going to see patients after sweating it out in the 80-90 degree heat would have not been good!  Thankfully at my new job, I don't have to see patients and my cubicle is a distance aways from the rest of the people.  I mean, I'm not like Milton in Office Space...they're not purposefully putting me far away from everyone.  The nurses share my cubicle area and since this is "home care" they're never in the office!  So anyway, I need some tips for the running lunch.  How do you clean yourself up afterwards without taking a complete shower?  Do you take your make up off before the run and then re-apply afterwards?  Maybe you just say to heck with makeup that day?!  Anything else I need to think about or consider before making this a part of my weekly routine?

Speaking of weekly routines, I did in fact go back for week #2 with the local running store's running group.  I only got there a few minutes early and didn't really have time to go around and ask everyone what their pace/plan was for the day.  The girls I ran with last week weren't there.  I was pretty sure I was going to end up running by myself.  And in fact, I did run the first 3 or so miles by myself.  I had hoped to get in 10 miles, so as a pair of runners passed me, I asked them where the turn-around point was for the 10 mile route.  About that time another girl came up and asked if she could run with me.  She also wanted to do 10 miles, but didn't want to keep up with the pair that had just passed me.  We ended up running the remainder of the run together.  She is a clinical pharmacist, so we had lots  in common.  I forgot to re-start my watch after one of the water stops, but I think our pace was around 9:30-9:40.  That's pretty good for me!  Of course she is training for a half iron man and running isn't her "strong" sport, but I was happy to have the company!  Sadly, I won't be able to go back to the running group until June 19th (my baby girl's 3rd birthday!), because of vacation.  To say that I am looking forward to this vacation is an understatement!  Our lives have been pretty stressful over the past year (hubby in school/working full time, me working part time/changing jobs, training, etc).  We are ready for some time away!  I don't dare say "relaxation" because there is no relaxation with small kids.  But at least I won't have to cook/clean/work for a whole week!  Hopefully the weather will cooperate for maximum beach time and the drive there and back won't be as dreadful as expected!  At the last minute, we've decided to drive overnight (maximize the kids' sleeping time).  This makes me incredibly nervous.  I know I won't be able to stay awake.  I'm just praying my hubby will be able to.  Any tips for that?  I'm also hoping to get some good runs in while there.  I know it's going to be hot and humid... Good training for my upcoming running lunches, I suppose!

I would try to use some of the face wipes for your face and body wipes or baby wipes for your body. I would say start the day without makeup then put it on after your run.

Good luck on vacation! Where are you going? I just got back from a trip out west that was a blast! Enjoy : )
