My New Focus: FUN

I don’t feel like I’m very focused/organized about Grandma’s half training.  Probably because I’m not. 🙂  I’m very very loosely following the plan from the Grandma’s website.  This week running with the group (translated:  being social) seemed more important than following the workouts that the schedule outlined.  I’m ok with winging it though, because I’ve pretty much decided just to run Grandma’s half as a fun, solid race and not a crazy-all-out race.  I rarely get weekends away, so I’d rather have fun!

This week WAS a week filled with fun and new adventures.  I totally tried to pack in the fun, since starting tomorrow I’ll be confined closer to home because of the new puppy.  I actually went out 6 of the past 7 days.  Crazy, I know.  I rode a Harley.  I ate fish (walleye; didn’t love it;  only tried 2 bites, then kind of got freaked out).  I had much needed girl time with my Girls 10 group.   I saw Semisonic at a tent party.  I ate hamburgers in bars 3 nights.  I drank too much wine and beer.  And more fun stuff. 🙂  It was a great week, socially.

Fitness stuff was good too.  I would have liked to bike more, but see the preceding paragraph on why I didn’t have time!
