I know what my coach is up to. He’s piling on quality back-to-back workouts in hopes I’ll somehow build stamina sufficient to make it thru the Flying Pig 3-way. It was a challenging week. This week brings much of the same. I’m doing my best to pretend I’m a 5 run/week kind of girl but I’m already fantasizing about a short ‘runbattical’ following Flying Pig.
- The bunny for once, did not overbuy, er I mean bring too much candy.
- I stayed away from chocolate for the duration of lent…except for what happened on the spring break cruise…but still…minimal chocolate there too.
- I know weight is just a number. But is a picture worth a thousand words? Because yours truly saw her recent race pics and got a rude awakening. Although I won’t be launching an all-out assault during training, stay tuned for some developments on the weightloss front.
- We had a milestone in the extended family last weekend when my eldest niece was confirmed. What frustrated me is that nobody beyond her immediate family was invited. It is not for me to judge others or advise people how to celebrate, but at the same time, as her aunt and Godmother, I would’ve loved to share in that rite of passage. Just putting it out here because it baffles me and now I’m moving on.
Congrats to Meb, Rita and everyone who ran The Boston Marathon!
