Another week in the books!
Training wise this was a rest week and thank goodness! When I'm getting back on the clean eating wagon, training is harder for me. It takes a lot of energy anyway and there is very little wiggle room when it comes to nutrition! This morning was a 45 minute easy run, the kind of run where Coach says don't bother with the heart rate monitor, just run by feel at a conversational pace. PERFECT. It was warm out and Tony and I "conversed" the whole way. Don't know how many miles. Don't care. :-)
Next week starts another build week toward BAM. Tony is going out of town so I will be on my own. Which is probably good for me. I've become very dependent on Tony to train with so I feel like working out on my own (or maybe with others for an OWS or ride on the weekend) will be good for me.
I'm already thinking ahead to the Utah Half and painting a picture in my head on how I want the race to go. The picture in my head is ambitious! Much more so than my current numbers indicate. Again, don't care. I know myself and absolutely know that I'm capable of executing an awesome race, in 90 degree heat, on a flat course! Naturally, I'm also glad that it's still over two months away, because there is much work to be done!
When I'm out there racing it I will be detached from the outcome, wanting only to give my best in every given moment. If I do that I am happy with the result. Um, yeah. Silverman is the perfect example of that. Silverman will always be on a pedestal in my mind. It was the very tip of the iceberg to a lot of things, bigger and better things! I think I really like the 70.3 distance and my two half irons this year will tell a lot in that regard. :-)
Our new kitchen is taking shape. Glenn is doing all the work himself so it's taking longer (and costing much less) than a typical remodel. When he figured out this morning what we've spent so far the figure is staggeringly low. The other side to that is that Glenn's business is slow right now which gives him the time to work on the kitchen. And we haven't ordered the cabinets yet. LOL! He has assigned me to clean the kitchen (there are tools everywhere) and I decided that blogging is a better option for me right now.
Uh oh. Guess I'd better get to it! We are going to the Lowery Fish Fry in a little while too. I'm looking forward to that! They always have great food there. And beer!!!
