I'm not a Real Blonde
Blonde moment number 2 million and 1.
Last night I did an easy 3 and a half mile run and then did a 40 minute bike trainer ride. I was really thirsty, so I filled my water bottle with the filtered water from the fridge door. I opened the freezer to pull something out and the water stopped. I stood there dumbfounded for a minute trying to figure out why I wasn’t getting any water out of the filter. I finally figured out that when you open the door, the water stops. Duh. I felt like such an idiot. The sad thing is, I keep having more and more of these "blonde moments" lately. Sigh. Old age?
Yes, that is a box of wine sitting next to my water bottle. Please, no redneck jokes about my box wine; I’m originally from Missouri, what do you expect. At least there wasn’t wine IN the water bottle and NO, I do not drink Stag beer. Even I have a few standards.
Training is going great and I am feeling much better then I did last week. My energy level is pretty much back to normal, which is wonderful because everyone around me is sick!
Monday: 5.25 mile fartlek run. Core work
Wednesday: 3.5 mile run and then a 40 minute trainer ride working on various cadences.
Tonight: 1 hour run with 3 miles at marathon goal pace (yeah!!)
Friday: Rest and recovery. Drink box wine.
Saturday: 16 mile long run. I will be working on hitting my marathon goal pace for about 4 miles of the run
Sunday: 1 hour trainer ride working at hitting high cadence.
I cannot believe that there is only 65 days left until my first marathon. Where did the time go? I keep reading all of your blogs about your various marathon experiences and I just can't wait! Who's taking bets that I'll make it this time? Ok, time to catch up on your posts now. See you soon.
