reading racing weight and the quick start by Matt Fitzgerald. Damn. It seems every time I try and focus on my weight, it goes up. I did have a beer last night and a slice of white bread with my chili, but otherwise, super clean day. Pisses me off. :(

I did however have an awesome time celebrating Kim and Dan's accomplishments at Kona with the team last night. So good to see so many peeps! A few are doing IMFL and one couple new tot the team are doing IM Australia on 12/7 for their first. I offered to ride with them if they'd like company. Ugh! :) So glad to not be on a focused plan at the moment.

I also heard from my Kona Krush Marie. Missing that girl! Wish I was coming to visit mid November again. Not wishing to be racing IMAZ though...and happy to be in the Keys that weekend. I may get in trouble for stalking the Potters and my EN teammates! ;)

1 mile wu
2x th miles, 2' recovery
rest to time z1/2
drills afterwards

First hard pace based run since before IMMT. Oh, yeah, that kind of sucked lol. It was harder in my mind than actually doing it. It was time to put myself back on a plan. Done. It was time. :)

In other news, my better half booked us a trip to go to Key Largo in 3 weeks. He and my brother are scuba diving, me and my sissy in law are chilling, and I'm pretty darn sure there will be some kayaking on our part. :) I'll run and swim while there and am thinking about bringing my paddle board. It's inflatable and we'll be really close to a huge park to play on it. Kinda excited about this surprise trip! :)

Paint creek with Bob

Nice long run at Paint creek (its been about a year?) in the cool crisp air while the rest of the Metro Detroit running world was racing the Freep Marathon and half. Gorgeous morning for it, but yeah...lots to remember and wear when running in 32 degrees! :)

Had much better success with errands today and Kaity drove me everywhere. She is driving much better. Still stressed behind the wheel, but much more competent. Hoping she can get her license soon.

  • Walking
  • 25m

walked the pups with Dave

had fun with Jo, Megan and Seashell at breakfast and the farmers market in Royal Oak. Got some gorgeous yummies. :)

Then I ran some errands, that well, were annoying and not too fruitful. Got home and all I wanted to do was sleep, but walked the pups in the chill fresh air with my hubby, showered, jumped in my pjs and had a nice dinner with my sis in law and the family. I fell asleep in the chair watching the boob tube, went to bed and Kaity and Nikki decided to laugh so much they woke me up. Not the worst way to wake up for sure. :)
