I am so falling off on my blogging other than the weekly training updates….life is good. We finally had a down weekend and I can see the counter again in my office which feels good. This week we had the book fair at school so I spent a night selling subway sandwiches in 3 inch heels (since I came right from work)…and MB and TB enjoyed doughnuts at school one morning.
We had a fun hayride and campfire night with our girl scout troop on Friday night….the weather got cooler (60’s) and we even had a little rain! As always there were lots of laughs 🙂
Saturday we only had one thing…SOCCER. MB played like her heart out for the first half..even talking a few slides after the ball! Was cold enough to wear her warm up suit…looking good!
So last week I managed to get in 18.5 miles! Woot! I found a great 5 mile route I can do from my office at lunch since the dark mornings and nights are working so well for me! Then today I went for my 9 along the canal. I didn’t fuel up like I should have but still managed to keep a pretty good pace with just a little walking here and there…I still need to figure out the canal system so I can stay on the trail versus sidewalk but I also hope to bring the lovebugs with me next time so they can ride bikes along. We met for lunch afterwards and then I got in a Dailey Method class…oh man did my thighs burn, but got in some good stretching and working on my endurance. 3 hours of working out….I think I have earned some nachos tonight!
Next week’s training looks good so far but lets see how the week plays out…we have a big chess tournament coming up this weekend which is going to make the long run a challenge but I will fit it in maybe in between matches.
Tuesday- 6 miles, hoping to do some speed work this time
Thursday- 6 miles, steady
Saturday- rest, maybe a family run (MB needs to get in some training for our 5K in Dec)
Sunday- 9 miles
Wish me luck….9 miles more shortest long run for awhile. OH NO!
