busy week!!! work has been crazy this week, i am just coming up for some air from a crazy busy morning.
thanks again everyone – glad you guys didn’t think i was having a temper tantrum maybe if you could have seen my face as i was typing or seen the IMs i was sending to my husband it might have better warranted the temper tantrum title. either way, i have stuck to my plan this week and done lots of crosstraining, weight training and no running. i think its been good for me, i am really going to enjoy running when i get back out there (soon!). the foot feels 99.9% back to normal, i am power walking through the office like a crazy person and not feeling a thing – YAY! i have iced it every night and continued stretching too. i am really trying to focus on stretching more this time around.
tuesday i did arm weights and 30 min on the arc trainer. wednesday i helped a friend move furniture out of the soon to be nursery to get ready to make it a nursery, so we skipped the gym that night. thursday i did back weights and 40 min on the bike. its been a good week! we are planning on going after work tonight too… chris and i often joke that our dates are to the gym fine with me!
in college i spent A LOT of time at the gym and did A LOT of weight training. i realllly enjoy it, especially the results, and have missed it a lot the passed couple months, so this week was fun to get back into that, and man could i feel it! its another thing i am really going to work on incorporating into training this time around. i slacked quite a bit on the weights towards the end of training for SFM.
last night i stayed up WAY past my bedtime trying to watch the olympics. i love gymnastics and i just wanted to see the girls win!!! i ended up falling asleep just before the balance beam, but i woke up sometime in the night to see that they had taken gold and silver! i did get to see phelps win #6 – he is just insane. everytime i see them win i get all teary… i love the olympics! i am really looking forward to track and field starting and the womens marathon tomorrow!!
its been HOT here this week. in the upper 90s or 100s everyday, so i was happy that the week i was not running was a hot one since its my least favorite running weather.
last night i started reading ultramarathon man and couldn’t put it down. i wont be surprised if i end up finishing it this weekend.
speaking of the ultramarathon man… guess who is going to be hosting a fun run in the east bay next week before his book signing… oh yes you know it – dean! and i am planning on being there… so excited!
hope everyone has FANTASTIC weekends!!! i can’t wait until 5:00… get me out of here!
