My blogging has been slacking.
I could up with a zillion excuses as to why but really it just hasn’t been a priority. In the past week when I have had the opportunity to sit and write I’m just too tired. Imagine that. Sounds like crazy talk.
I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that in 2 weeks I have already logged more than 100 miles. Just barely but still. That’s a record for me.
If there was such thing as PRing in training I’d be on the podium baby. Doing work like a boss.
I’m taking this training for Chicago thing pretty darn serious. I have a real training plan and I’m sticking to it. I have an awesome friend/coach/mentor who has willing volunteered time to keep me on the straight and narrow and encourage me. It is beyond awesome and I am feeling pretty blessed. I’m running like I have never run before. I’m also hungrier than I have ever been.
I’m eating all things. All the time.
It’s pretty impressive.
This week is going to be just as runtastic as last week but with just a few more miles.
Plan is as follows (just in case you are training too!):
Monday: 5 miles easy- done
Tuesday: Track: 2.3 w/u. 6×800, c/d: Total: 8.01 miles
Wednesday: 5 easy
Thursday: Tempo, likely 2 mi w/u, 4 @ mid tempo, 2 mi c/d
Sat: 4 easy
Sun: 18 @ LR pace with a fast finish.
If all goes well I will end this week with 48 miles under the belt. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
In between time I am doing strengthening and conditioning as well as Yoga. Yoga has been a mental and physical savior for my body.
Class last Saturday: Yoga For Runners. With a view of Downtown SD. Fantastic.
If you are in SD check out her schedule and come to a class!
Alrighty, you now you are all up to date on all things running. Sa-weet.
Now for serious chat. How about an update on my MIL?!
She has had 3 crazy hard chemo sessions over the past 6 weeks. She has had good days and bad days. She is officially rocking all kinds of sweet wigs and battling like a true champ. We were told that she would have a Pet Scan after her 4th treatment but last week the doctor changed the game plan and decided to do it THIS WEEK. Thursday to be exact. If you are the praying kind we ask that you include her this week. Pray for encouragement: we are hoping that the chemo is doing its job and kicking this cancer’s butt. Pray for strength: These next few days all of our minds are running wild. We know we shouldn’t worry unless we have something to worry about, right? Pray for guidance: that if things don’t turn out how we hope that they do that we will continue to have faith and trust in HIS will.
Thank you my friends for continuing to check on her and being cool with me freely writing about what’s going on. While I have not talked about it in a while that doesn’t mean that things are happening. It is a part of our daily life. We never know what tomorrow will bring so we have to keep the faith!
Let’s end on a happy note.
We are getting ready to move in the next few months! It’s bittersweet because it is our first home but it’s time to move on. Last year we tried to sell the place and couldn’t. Now we have decided to rent it out and move into new digs. That means all kinds of projects and legal mumbo jumbo so that we don’t have to deal with landlord duties. Bring on the boxes. Can’t wait to decorate a new place. WOOHOOO!
What have you been up to? What’s new and exciting? What have I been missing out on?
If you are having any struggles please let me know so that I can encourage you 🙂
