Forgive my break from the blog world, my life has been a bit crazy w/ the house on the market and trying to keep everything in order. I don't have much to report running/training wise besides a feeling of BLAH. I'm trying to get some motivation back on the table and we'll see where that goes. In order to help me with that, I signed up for a 10k this weekend and have the Oddyssey Half Marathon in 2 weeks. There's beer at the finish and I will be running it for fun because I do better that way. I'm looking forward to meeting runblondie26 too!
In overall life, I feel very happy and thankful that I'm able to stay home with the kiddos and teach them. This time is precious and I love it. I will be teaching an online course for my school this summer which I'm looking forward to. I was doing the training for it and most of the day concerned that I was going to miss my little Kara crawling. It was nice to go back to the working world - for a day - but I couldn't do it. Amazing how a baby can change everything.
Last week I met Rebecca for the first time! She sees the husband of my friend as a chiropractor for her hip - husband and wife chiropractors. My hamstring is doing pretty well, it's moving up my leg and switching spots. The Graston seems to be working. Anyway, we had a playdate with our kids and it was really fun to meet her and her girls are so cute! Nick had fun playing with Elena and we had a nice time chatting.
Other than that I just need to get my A#% on the bike for the 26 miles in the tri that is in just over a month. I can't motivate!! I WILL go for a bike ride this weekend. It's just a matter of budgeting the time for me (and I'd rather be running, swimming, lifting, fill in the blank).
I started thinking about marathon training plans and trying to determine my best route and thinking about hiring a coach.
