I've been MIA from the blog for a little while. Lots going on. I'm getting married on Saturday, so I've had a handful of appointments (hair, spray tanning to cover my many tri top tan lines, final meetings with all of the vendors), last minute shopping trips (did I really need to hand craft a monogrammed aisle runner 3 days prior to the big day?), wrapping up loose ends (making endless lists, finalizing vows, making programs), and family coming into town (Mom, brother JoshyPoo, and brothers fiance Heather are all here now). My training has slacked off a little, but I'm still getting some good workouts in.
Ken snapped this super flattering shot of me in the midst of program making.
Last week:
I had a few great runs in the 10:15-11:30 pace range. I also made it to the weekly VBC Time Trial and almost hit 21 mph again...on tired legs. I put in a 2.5 hour session on the bike trainer due to crazy windy rain outside.
This week:
Another nice run early in the week. A 42 mile bike ride with Jeff (who 5 miles into it helped me realize that "holy crap I have a wedding in 3 days, you hopefully only get married once, so really, it's OKAY if I don't get 5 hours in on the bike when I have piles of to-do lists sitting at home"), which included baying at horses and mooing at cows, sunny sunny sunshine, a 30min stop at a coffee shop, another coffee shop stop 5 miles later, and lots of laughing and chit-chatting. I'll be going for a run today, swim tomorrow, and then taking a few days off.Probably no more updates from me until I return from the honeymoon. Happy Training!
