Just a little over a week and a half until my fall half-marathon! I’m excited and nervous. I’m really looking forward to it, since it will only be a trek to St. Charles vs. heading all the way downtown and then getting lost and wondering where the hell you parked your car because everything looks different in the daylight!
Last week I put in 12 miles running, with a four miler and an eight miler. My training hasn’t gone to plan exactly. Of course. But I feel like I’m ready to handle the miles. My eight mile run was good, but after mile 6 I walked a lot more. I ran the first 4 solid, then walked a little of mile five, and then walked several times miles 6-8. I had been planning on going to yoga class, and hadn’t really paid all that much attention to the weather, and it wound up being much warmer than I anticipated and my full pants got pretty warm, pretty quick! But I managed to push through and finish. I already know I will be wearing crops to the race, so I won’t have a problem with my bottoms. I do need to figure out the top situation though.
I got no miles in on the bike last week, which is a bit of a bummer. And the one yoga class I went to got canceled because the teacher didn’t make it. So no yoga hours either. :(
This week is going to go a little similar most likely. I have a long run to do, but I’m not certain when I will manage to fit it in this weekend, between the senior pictures, alumni barnwarming, and other stuff I have to get done. I’m going to do my best to fit it all in some how. I suppose where there is a will, there is a way!
Yesterday was our 8th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been 8 years already! I got some beautiful flowers and a lovely card, and then we went to Ariaiki’s for dinner, and saw “This Is How I Leave You” after.
The movie was pretty good. It was a nice blend of funny and serious, although there are a few story lines I wish they would have explored a little bit more. But I think it was a pretty great movie all in all, and I definitely recommend that you go and see it!
Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have a product review for you, a race recap and review for you, and who knows what else!
