Rainy, dreary, WINDY, but warm! I guess I'm thankful for the warm!!! March in Minnesota is crazy as far as weather goes. Now, will Boston be rainy, dreary, WINDY, or warm? My obsession begins.....
Yesterday was my daughter Ryan's 12th birthday. She is getting SO old. Now, if she would just get a little taller we could maybe at least start sharing shirts which would perhaps cut a few expenses for me! I'm sure she would be only to thrilled to have her mother wearing her clothes around town! Anyway, she had a great birthday and for the first time in awhile we all ate supper together and hung out in the family room the WHOLE night! I totally bagged the running and did not feel guilty one bit!
My niece Kaitlyn's 16th birthday was also yesterday. She takes her driver's test tomorrow morning which is my other niece Savannah's birthday. If she passes the three of them are going out to dinner and to a movie to celebrate! Ryan is so excited!
Somehow my boss found out about my inappropriate text message awhile back and will not let it die (I'm thinkin' my husband has a big mouth)! I sit next to him for 9 hours a day. He literally gave me crap for all 9 hours on Monday!
My mom is kickin' butt on her 5K training. I am so excited to cheer her on in Fargo in May. I'm so proud of her determination and this will be a major accomplishment for her.
I have an ENORMOUS amount of yardwork to tackle. The snow is all gone and it looks like a dreary mess!! I need a gardener because I don't know when I'm going to fit this in.
On the running front:
Monday-off to relax after the weekend and reward myself for NO off days last week.
Tuesday My sister came over and we ran 11 miles in 70 degree weather. Killer south wind. 11 miles/7:41
Wednesday-Off again for birthday party!
Thursday-(today) 10 miles/7:50. Very sick and tired of this wind. It is really knocking me out!
Plan is for 20 tomorrow! This will be my last long long run before Boston. My body is ready to taper-my mind is not. Have really been slacking on the speedwork the last 2 weeks. I've brought a few miles up to 10K pace but really enjoy just running around 7:40-8:00. I'm guessing this is where my marathon pace will be (hopefully on the lower end of it. Time will tell and have I mentioned I can't wait until April 20th!!!!!
AFTER-Sweat much!! No, I don't think I will be wearing this shirt in Boston..lol!!
