I had to go back to work today, boo! I had a nice three days off to recover from the Relay! And I really needed it! I had no idea that I would be wiped out for so many days! I really didn't start feeling rested until yesterday, but I guess that is what happens when you stay up all weekend and party! LOL! It was so worth it, though. And I highly recommend to anyone who is ever considered or been offered a place on a relay team to DO IT! It is another running experience that is worth it's weight in gold. I have so many fun memories and so many new experiences that I am so grateful that I had the chance to participate :)
I still have Lake Tahoe Marathon September 26, but this is NOT the course to go out and kill, so I will use it for a good training run and LOVE the hills. BTW, LB is a FLAT course, my favorite. And I will still do SF half. I know that it will mean training in the heat of the summer, but I am a person that needs a schedule so this shouldn't be too bad. If I complain about the heat, you have my permission to come over and slap me since it is all self inflicted :)
That's about it in running news. I got in a nice five miler yesterday and some great ab work. I'm going to attempt to keep my running at 5 days a week until my training starts and then I will see how I do. I don't do so hot on days that I don't run, I just feel off. But I was hoping to make it a 5 day a week schedule, but if need be I can add a day just fine. I joined the YMCA by my house this week since my sister works there. It's convenient, has a pool and is never crowded. And best of all, it's free :) This should be helpful for the summer training. And work is DEAD. Which is good and bad. Nothing really on my plate, but it makes it hard to come and not have really anything to do. I should enjoy the down time but you can only sit and do so little for so long. We shouldn't see clients start coming in until at least July so for now it's dead.
So, thank you again to all of you who continue to read and support. I've had a little hiatus from bloggy land - I really checked out for the last couple of days from everything! (I needed it) I'm off to catch up with all of you!
Happy Running and Happy Thursday peeps!
