My blogging style sort of reflects my workouts. If I take a day off from working out then I usually don’t post. Usually. Well, I did take a day off again yesterday from both! I woke up to see rain falling AGAIN. I went back to sleep and somehow the kids let us
over sleep until after 8:30. That just confirms that I needed the sleep anyway. I had flashes of wanting to workout during the day, but there really was not the perfect time to fit it in. I also don’t want to bring the kids to the Y everyday if I don’t have to. They have to come with me if I am working as it is. I was ( and still am) a bit sore from Wednesday’s M and M class. 2 whole days off for me this week. Unheard of! Not really. I am not even freaking out. Not a lot anyway. 😉 I always preach the importance of balance and recovery so I might as well listen to myself every once in a while. In the back of my mind I can’t help thinking about upcoming races though and the lack of training I have put in. July 2 I have a 10 mile trail run called the T-Rex Trail Race. I planned on doing some trail running before this race, but that did not happen. I did this race last year and it was brutal. Brutal for a person such as myself = awesome. I fell, I threw up a little, and I won my age group. * I have to add that I passed a lady in my age group with less than a half mile to go..I seem to do that a lot* I expect to do 2 out of those 3 this time around. Ha. I would love to win my age group again ( not sure how that happened), but I will be honest with myself. I won’t. My times this year have been on average way slower than my slow times of last year! So whatever. I will just go and enjoy the experience of running up dirt hills and the challenge of the race. So be it!
I am teaching spin today at noon. Wendi and I swapped classes. It was nice not getting up at 4 something AM. She is teaching for me next week too so I can stay out late with Mat Kearney while he sings to me all. night. long. 😉 He stalks me. It’s kind of
nice weird. 😉
Tomorrow is the Reed’s Lake Run. Matt and Amara are running the 5k along with Matt’s 2 uncles. I am excited to actually spectate a race of Amara’s. She is nervous already too. A sign of a true athlete! 🙂 I think she is most nervous about what to wear – shorts or a skirt?!? See, I am not sure where she came from….
I have to figure out when to fit in my long run. I will probably have to run by myself too. Boo hoo! I am thinking long run on Saturday ( 10 miles or so?) and a bike ride on Sunday – hopefully about 20 miles. My go – to duathlon in on July 16th so yea, I need to get in some real bike miles.
On tap for Saturday: Run long?
