Favourite Run: I ran 8 x 1000 on Tuesday of this week and felt fantastic start to finish. Started at tempo pace and worked my way down to 5K race pace. It was a dark 5am run with 5 other ladies and it was so quiet and peaceful – even as we gabbed away on the recoveries.
Most Hardcore Run: A speedy 5K (24:42) brick run after a 22 mile ride to work in Week 11
Book of the Month: The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein – not about running, but about racing cars and told from a dog’s perspective. Very sweet and touching story.
Song of the Month: Someone Like You by Adele – for singing-along-in-the-car purposes only. Good thing nobody can hear me.
Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Bachelor Pad! who doesn’t love some Monday night trashy reality
Obsession of the Month: 70.3 races and training plans for next year. there, I said it.
Indulgence of the Month: Yogurtys
Drink of the Month: chocolate milk – I’ve been craving and enjoying it after workouts like whoa
Current Wish-List: a Kinetic bike trainer and a new bike
Current Need: running shoes! I’m waiting on a new model to be available at my local store and the old model is not available in my size anywhere!
Triumph of the Month: earning myself the “triathlete” title – top spot on the podium was nice too. 🙂
Current Bane of my Existence: Morgan’s injury – and not because I’m tired of hearing about it but because this girl deserves to be healed dammit.
Current Blessings: The ability and opportunity to do what I love.
Current Excitement: joining a masters swim team! starting coached practices later this month. so pumped!!
Current Goal: not wiping out on the beach at my first sprint tri next weekend. It was good for a laugh, but I don’t really want to make a habit of it.
