...that song has been the soundtrack to my past 2 days.
Busy busy busy busy busy! Whew. I am freaking exhausted and about to go to bed.
Haven't had much time to post to blogs but I'm trying to get caught up! :) Send good vibes to Curly Su, who's, uh, let's just say having a rough day. And also good vibes to DaisyDuc, who's du-ing her first du this weekend!
Had a decent swim yesterday. Nothing too fast, but not too slow. Then today had a early morning :50 min ride, and an after school run. I decided to do 1:15 instead of :45 and moved the :45 to Friday after school, since I am currently in the world of bridal shower hell this weekend. I'll spare you the details. Guys, be glad you don't have to go through anything comparable. That's all I gotta say.
Run today went well! I felt really strong again and am pretty pumped. I ran 2.5 miles up to the local high school and figured they were just about done with track practice--and, score, I was right. Then I did 6X400s with 400 recovery--wasn't sure how it would go since I haven't done structured speedwork FOREVER. Just lots of hills and fartleks and a few tempo runs. So, I was excited when it went like this:
1:47 (damn iPod earplugs drove me nuts and wouldn't stay put)
Really pumped about that last one! I looked up in my log what I was doing last year for my 400s before the Pig and I was usually between 1:47-1:55. So this was quite an improvement for me and it made me happy. Perhaps I shall try a 5K? Uh oh, here comes CS again....
Tomorrow it's a swim and hopefully some core/weights. This weekend should be INSANITY as I try to fit in a 3 hour brick and 2 hour run around bridal shower craziness. Hmmmmm.....
But next week, kids, I begin SPRING BREAK. And that is alllllllllllllllllllllllll good. :)
Monday night fly out to AZ to see the fam, Tuesday we are going to the D-backs game vs. San Fran (should I throw my empty Allegra container at Barry?) then Wednesday picking up my buddies and Thursday-Saturday backpacking in the GRAND CANYON!
So I will survive, I will survive, oh, as long as I know how to love (or tri) I know I'll stay alive.....
THANK GOODNESS FOR TRI! Or I woulda had to check into the funny farm a LONG time ago. :)
Have a good one!
