Seriously now! I am back at it! Hockey is done for now and I have my life back!!!!!!! I have been a total slug since I got off work today and I've been reading and catching up on blogs for over an hour! My kids were fried from the weekend so they got to bed at 8:00. I was working all day and Joe was home and when I walked in the door from work my house was freakin' immaculate!! He cleaned EVERYTHING! Honestly, a 4 carat diamond couldn't have made me happier! Mondays have been very stressful always getting in late Sunday from traveling and heading to work and school in the morning.
Here's my random crap since last post:
Went to Monticello and St. Cloud for the MN Select Hockey tournament over the weekend. Ryan was chosen to play on the North team and she played awesome! The weekend was a lot of fun getting a chance to meet families from other towns! It is so fun for her to play with different girls and make new friends! I was on a mission to find a dress for myself for my mother-in-law's wedding in 2 weeks. Spent 3 hours looking. I swear I see a million things I want until I'm actually looking for them. Didn't help that I decided to wear my super cute new cowboy boots that I can't get off by myself. Every time I would go in a fitting room I had to bring Ryan with me so she could pull these stupid things off. Seriously, the security people watching the fitting rooms got quite the freak show!! Anyway, finally found a dress that I LOVED, bought it and too make a long story short, now can't find it! I've searched all the suitcases, called the hotel, searched the car, NO DRESS!! I am SO mad!
Got my Boston packet in the mail. Bib #10274-Wave1-Corral 10. Holy crap- 3 weeks. I am excited because my sister is in the same corral as me and at least I will have someone to hang out with before the race! We are very different runners and I'm not sure exactly where her training is at. She could be 10 minutes ahead, she could be 10 minutes behind so we likely won't be running together. We are however, running together tomorrow night for the first time since last September! Should be fun!
To the running! Just finished my first ever 70 mile week-66 of it outside which is a good confidence builder for me since I panic over all the treadmill running I've done sometimes. Here's the rundown:
Monday- 10.6 miles/7:40 with 6@7:15
Tuesday-11 miles/7:44. Mile 1 was slow and mile 9 I met some friends walking and started to walk and visit for a bit (9:25). Didn't stop the Garmin so average pace for the other 9 miles was 7:30 or so.
Thursday 22.43 miles/7:58. It was fairly cold (9 degrees) to start but this was a really good run. I felt strong the whole way through and not fried at the end.
Friday-5 miles/8:01 in Monticello. VERY windy! Was trying to run at recovery pace but so excited to be somewhere new!
Saturday- 10 miles/7:48 with Joe. We brought up the pace in the middle 4 miles and just enjoyed the rest. I LOVE BIKE PATHS! I am so tired of running on the road and super prick drivers!!!!
Sunday- AM-6 miles/8:16 PM-4 miles on the treadmill at home/7:58. Totally ran the 4 miles just to hit 70. JUNK miles yes, but rewarding just the same.
Managed the 30 day shred twice and a basic ab workout most days. Today was an off day and I'm totally relishing it! I will run one more 20 miler either Thursday, or Friday depending on the weather and then cut back!
Tomorrow night running with my sister, Wednesday night-my daughter Ryan's 12th birthday, Thursday night-hockey banquet, Friday night- it is one of my good friend's birthdays and 5 of us girls are heading to Rock Harbor Lodge in the evening. Should be a lot of fun since we've hardly seen each other with all the hockey travel (4 of us have kids in hockey). Saturday night-my niece Libby's birthday party, Sunday-Easter with the fam!! I guess my life is still pretty busy!!
I would upload some pics but I just bought a new camera and can't figure out how to load the software! Anyway-back to catching up! Have a good one!!
