Myrtle Routine

Wednesday - July 16

Still feeling tired from the race and long drive. I always forget what a toll, physically and mentally, a race takes on me. While it would have been great to take advantage of the beautiful cool morning weather, sleep won out today.

Next week starts marathon training. I purchased a custom training plan from Jason Fitzgerald of strengthrunning.com that, while run focused, also incorporates a maintenance level of swim and bike in, as well as strength workouts. Trying to cobble a plan together hasn't worked so well for me in the past --- there's just too much information out there and I tend to jump from one program to another.

Tuesday - July 15

Slept in a bit today, then went to the grocery store and picked up a few things. Got my tomato plants staked. I swear they grew a foot over the weekend. We are starting to get cherry tomatoes and bell peppers!!!! Went into the office around 10 and am slowly getting caught up. Body feels tired from the combination of racing a very difficult course on Sunday and then driving 13 hours on Monday.

My mom really enjoyed the trip out to Maryland, she and her sister were able to spend several days together and had fun catching up. I hope I can continue to get her out there once a year. Guess I'll have to keep picking Maryland races.

Monday - July 14

Got home tonight after driving 14 hours straight. Race was awesome. Will catch up on inspires in the morning!
