Cheese, 4 days to go

Thanks for your help on the christmas pictures!! finally ordered my cards.

On Monday I meant to go swimming but Nick was up from 11:30 to 12:30, so I turned off the alarm in the middle of the night and woke up too late to go! Tuesday I did Kate's workout of 1 mile warmup, 1 800 with 400 jog, and 4 400s with 200 jog then 1 mile easy. I liked it! Today I went swimming and tomorrow I plan to do 3-6 miles at MP. Friday I'll either take off or do a couple of miles and Saturday I'll do 2. I'm looking forward to Sunday but not planning on setting any records! I am going to enjoy the day and get back into the enjoyment of the sport!

Cheese - I usually cut out fat on the week before a big race. On Monday I joined Costco and bought this HUGE block of cheese for entertaining and everyday I've had a slice. D10 - you made me remember no cheese. BAD CHEESE!! My goal is tomorrow through Sunday - no cheese! Drink more water and lots of carbs starting tomorrow. I am enjoying this taper. I also ordered a case of Chocolate Mint GU and Vanilla Gingerbread. I can't wait to down them on Sunday. Woooo - tis the season!! With this taper week in action, I am really thinking about decorating for Christmas!

I'm hoping to meet Billie on Sunday and find Abby who got a spot in the race! Only a few days to go! Looking forward to those medals and fun shirts.

don't forget the clif quench giveaway

  2. I dont have a race this weekend, but I also have been loading up on cheese this week. I realized a local fruit stand sells cheese - cheap and awesome cheese. So I bought two small blocks of it and just keep snacking on it ... nonstop!
