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!
