Just Enjoy the Moment

When I transferred to the 8K it put me in the training team.  Figured since I spent as much as I did on the half marathon that I would take full use of my fees and go into the training team for the 8K.  From the looks of todays group there are a fair number of seasoned runners  in it, few novice ladies. 
No way am I going to stick to such an easy training plan, There is no challenge in it. Might have to make some speed work days and run more.  The training plan is so basic......good for a novice runner but not challenging at all for an experienced one.
Yesterday Thing One lost all her keys.  House, car, dorm room.....John is driving up to Lynchburg this morning to give her a spare car key and have another house key made for her.  Help her get a new dorm key. ****He just texted me, he found her keys, they had been locked in her car.  I am sure that she had a big sigh of relief. 
Miss Thing is still asleep, not sure when she got in fro[...]

Pretty Running - lean forward, roll off your big toes, keep hand above your waist, look about 6 feet in front of you with your eyes, drive your elbows back and never cross your midline with your hands.

wonderful morning for a run.  This run felt good.  Amazing what 8 hrs of sleep can do.

Had to do my final weigh-in for DietBet this morning -- due to some ill-advised pizza for lunch yesterday, I was about a quarter pound heavy... so I donned my sweats and headed to the basement to do my run.  Success!  I ended up almost a pound below my goal weight.
I don't think I'll be doing DietBet again anytime soon ... it's a great idea, but the community aspect of it never really comes through and -- for me -- just a vague out-there goal doesn't get me motivated (as evidenced by the pizza I ate yesterday even though I knew I had to weigh-in).  I think this could really work if you got together a group of people you knew -- like a training group, or co-workers... something like that.  With non-random people involved, I can see how this would work much better. (Note:  the site DOES let you set up your own teams)
I'm thinking about getting my grocery shopping out of the way... just got to get up the energy to move..

7:05am:  Later night than I anticipated -- went over to my parents' house for dinner with my cousin who was in from CA and his new girlfriend.  My cousin -- who's in his 60's -- lost his wife to ALS a few years ago and the family was devastated (though happy she was finally relieved from her suffering).  We never thought he'd find someone else, but he has -- and she's absolutely wonderful and perfect for him.  I'm thrilled for him; he was much too young to spend the rest of his life on his own.
Going to be a busy-ish weekend for me -- nothing tonight (thankfully!), my brother's house tomorrow with cousins and Sunday I'm meeting my friend to run stairs in the morning and then another friend will be over in the afternoon to test ride the bike I'm hoping to sell to her.  All good stuff, but I always prefer quiet weekends.  :)
Workout this afternoon after work and then NOTHING.  Maybe some reading.  Maybe I'll spend some more time with the Roos[...]

Planned to swim. Brought my gear with me and then changed my mind.  Figure I'd rest instead and be fresh as possible for Cow Harbor tomorrow.  Work if off-the-chain crazy right now.

Drills and endurance. Longest swim to date. Had a physical in the morning with a blood draw . . . Felt tired on the endurance portion of the swim. Not sure if it was the physical, the physical activity, or what.

In the afternoon, I went for a short run with my son in the stroller. It was a really nice way to spend some time together and get in a run. He was very chatty and seemed to enjoy it, but probably not as much as I did. Gratitude.
