I’m sitting here, feeling full and quiet after a late Mother’s Day breakfast with la familia. It’s been a full weekend (aren’t they all, really?). TriZones Open Water Swim Practice Yesterday was the Tri Zones open water swim. The weather was just too heinous to put everybody in the water; it was actually quite dark and… Continue reading Quiet Time to Get Caught Up
This morning, the hubby headed off for the airport and I got ready to go to workout, only to realize that my keys were in his car. I called frantically and, luckily, he had not gotten so far away that he couldn’t turn around and bring my keys back to me. I decided to sprint… Continue reading Hammie Time
I have been so wrapped up in several projects lately that it has been hard to post. My running log is behind, too, and I’m sitting here in sweaty workout clothes still. And I have places to go, things to do but I NEEDED to take the time to write. Triathlon Coaching and Training Yesterday… Continue reading Where Does the Time Go?
Actually, what I mean is…so many training opportunities, so little time…but training and social engagements are pretty much one and the same to me, so the line from Raising Arizona works. Trail Running & Coaching In May, I’m going to do a trail race (Pocatella 50 miler) as part of a 3-man relay. That is… Continue reading So Many Social Engagements; So Little Time
Where do the days go? Yesterday was such a wonderful weather day. I barely worked up a sweat on my run. Because it was so cool, I headed over to the new house to work on the yard. After the trees came down in the storm, the front yard changed from an oasis of shade to… Continue reading Yard Stuff at the Little House
I am an 8-hours of sleep kind of girl. I absolutely need sleep. When I fall short, I feel bad. It’s not just the usual grumpiness, but I feel sick and don’t eat well. It’s not a good thing when I have a sleep deficit. Because of high school band, Boy Child has to be… Continue reading Sleeping and Training Around the Kid’s Schedule
I forgot to post my totals for last week (Week 21) and here I am at the end of Week 22 already. This was a LONG training stretch. Because of graduation, my off day was a week ago Saturday, not my usual (and beloved) Monday. This threw my numbers off a bit and also meant… Continue reading Are We There Yet?
Wow, I have a lot of things to do but right now, all I want to do is write in my journal. Maybe I’ll be brief…working backwards throughout the weekend… Long Run Today, I had my long run. It actually went MUCH better than last week’s — I went further and ran faster, thanks to a system… Continue reading Big Ironman Training Weekend
On Saturday, we did the Spokes ‘n Spurs ride. I find that I look forward to these organized rides. It’s fun to be out there with a bunch of people, and it’s so nice having a marked route and volunteers at intersections and all. I am amazed at how cheap they are, when you compare… Continue reading Spokes ‘n Spurs Ride
I’ve had some fun this week with training. I seem to come out of each workout with a smile on my face and general joy in my heart. And that is something I haven’t had in quite some time. Thursday, I ran with my friend who’s doing her first half marathon at 3M. We did… Continue reading Badass Weekend Warrior
