What happens when I don't get sleep.....

Personalize funny videos and birthday eCards at JibJab!

Yeah-sometimes I don't sleep well and do sh*t like this.....I may even have seizures laughing by myself at my own computer.....

Off for a big hockey weekend!! Finally going to hit the 60's outside and I'm going to spend the weekend in a hockey rink! I'm so excited for a fun weekend with my family though!!! My husband leaves on Monday for a 2 week trip so good times before he goes!!

Training week-

Monday
-6 easy recovery

Tuesday-14 total-10 am which ended up being a little faster than I planned...this is becoming a regular occurence with my easier runs again. The "Jenn" plan....Jenn should not be writing plans.... 4 miles after school with Reese
I'm trying this print screen paint crop thing-yeah, won't be doing that regularly-way too lazy.


Wednesday -8 miles 5X1K repeats with 2 minute active recovery. Did them on the treadmill due to bad weather before work. Very tough. I used to find the TM easier for speed and now when I use it, I'm practically putting a hole in the wall from nearly falling off the end of the thing.....Would MUCH rather be outside. Have I mentioned that I'm hating Minnesota right now.....Anyway, I had to lengthen the recovery on the last two and still slower than goal pace. I am struggling with mornings....

Thursday-decided to wait until night to run this to give my legs a little more recovery. I needed to fit in somewhat of a tempo since I won't run tomorrow and want to long run on Saturday. I never run speed and tempo back to back and wasn't sure how my legs would feel. They didn't feel too great and I suffered through 9 with 5 in the middle at 7:18 which was a HARD effort (like damn near 5K effort) and slower than I would have liked. Whatever....

Friday-off

Saturday-Planning for 20-22 with first half moderate, next 8 or so MP+10 seconds and final 1-2 at HMP+10seconds. This will be a tough one for me I think but I get to run along a nice path on the Red River and a change of scenery will be nice.

Sunday
6 recovery

Good Luck to all those racing this weekend!!! I will be away from a computer for the next few days but will try to keep up my reading on my phone!!

It's looking as though my good buddy Amanda may not be able to race her HM this weekend BOOO!! except perhaps with the stroller pace team.... I'm posting this sign in tribute just the same!! Check out her post if you think I'm a freak for calling her this!!

Love the sign for Amanda! =D

Enjoy your weekend in the rink...hope you can get outside for that nice long run!

The Thursday run...well...golly, Jenn. I don't know many people who could pull off 7:18 miles after a wednesday workout like that. Sheesh! I would say to try it on your LR Saturday, but something tells me you are already running MP for that =D ..or HMP.

You are cranking out the miles!

1 buck for gut-busting humor is totally worth it. Maybe I should get on your ecard email list!

Saving some turkeys for your guys....

Love the video and your facial expressions. Fun!

You did 3 hard runs in a row! I think you should be very please with yourself. Had you done them with a rest or easy day in between, they would have been faster and easier. But, I just read something about how sometimes it is good to overload the body and then rest - you make gains quicker.

Enjoy the weekend! Hope you get some sleep...with all that getting physical stuff you can wear yourself out, you know:)
