First off, I just wanted to mention a giveaway for all of you bookworms out there. Molly at I'm a Sleeper Baker is giving away a book called "God Never Blinks 50 Lessons on Life's Little Detours". I like to read inspirational books every now and then, sometimes they are pretty cool. Go check out her blog and giveaway.
Training: I did my first Brick on Wednesday. For those of you who don't know what this is, it is a bike ride and then a run following the ride. Why would I put myself through this torture? I would like to do a sprint triathlon this summer, just for the heck of it as long as I don't kill myself trying to run my marathon. This was my first time riding the bike outside since last summer and ouch! I put in 9 miles in half an hour and then got off and ran (jogged). My legs felt a little wobbly, but I made it.
No long run this weekend, since it is rest and recovery week, but looking at the 20 miler next week and Beth, I'm NOT looking forward to this one either!
Gratitude-I haven't done this in awhile:
1.) March Madness. I just have to say, since I'm a Mizzou fan-I HATE KU!
2.) Green beer on St Patty's day (or any day for that matter)
3.) Sports Massages
4.) Rest and Recovery weeks
5.) My trash men. They had to haul away a huge bag of dog poop today since I haven't scooped in a while. I'm sure they hate me, but I'm thankful for them!
Good luck to all of you racing this weekend. GO JILL!
