Back from hiatus

Please note that I have no circulation in my fingers again...I love having no heat in my office. I've had people say that it's the little things that make it nice....hmmm...

So weekend 4 of 9 out of NYC in the books. And best of all one weekend to go til my family obligations are finito for a while! Now don't misread that..i love my family dearly but traveling to jersey or philly every weekend gets old, not to mention tiring. The wedding is a week from this coming Sunday.

Anyway this weekend was the bachlorette party. It was well the usual. Do I really need to say more? I thought not.

As for the running front, I took it easy this week. I took 3 FULL days off...to allow ample recovery from last week's race. I guess its good to practice what I preach, no? I did get in a close to 11 mile run on thursday by accident. It adds up quickly. Between a pre-group reservoir, lower 5 group run and 2 more reservoirs with friends that showed up at the end....voila! To me it shows the fantastic shape I'm in as it really didn't phase me at all. I ended up with another 25 mile week as an off week. Pretty neat. I'm looking to maintain 25 as a low week and only go as high as 35 at any point. I've definitely noticed it has made a tremendous difference.

Now I shall ramp up for the mini 10k in 4 weeks or as I say, the redemption 10k. I'll also get back at the biking and swimming. There are a couple sprint tris I'm eying in july. Oh and in case you didn't think I plan ahead....
Races I'm thinking about in the coming months (til september)..definitely subject to change:
Mini 10k - june 10
Corporate challenge - june 22 (not really a race...but will be there)
Sprint tri - july
Some other race - july (depends on what weekend I do a tri)
Club championships-august
Hope and possibility 5 miler - august
H2C - august
Philly distance run - September

  • 2010 - Gunning for you!

    With a nice snowstorm halting activities tonight, it's time to think about what 2010 brings. Yes, it will be a celebration towards the big 3-0 but…

    This past week I had the pleasure of attending not one, but two tweet-ups! And as it should be, running was the occasion. Tuesday night I literally…

  • Where the heck did 2009 go?

    Yesterday I was sitting at work and I overheard CNN playing in the kitchen and one of the reporters was saying "and next month starts a new decade."…
