I’ve got a big training week coming up including:
Tomorrow: Bolder Boulder 10K
Sunday 6/5: Longmont Sprint Tri
Neither of these are my “A” races, just part of my overall half ironman training.
Strange for a girl like me, I but I do not have a 10K PR time. I don’t run many 10Ks, and always do them with my kids. Tomorrow, I will actually run by myself. Along with 50,000 other people. I am not in my tip top running shape, but I’m going to push it and see what happens. I’ve got my playlist ready to roll. I call it “Beth’s Bolder Boulder” because I am creative that way:
Yeah, so it’s 1.4 hours of songs – hopefully will not be needing all of that time. Unless the poop fairy visits mid-race.
And, before you dis the Canon in D Power Music Workout, you should hear it. The processional in our wedding was to Pachebel, so it’s always got a special place in my heart. And, now, I can run to it!
In last week’s training I pulled back for a nice dose of recovery. Only 7 hours of training including 2 runs, 2 swims, 2 bikes. In addition, other weekly stats:
# of falls off of bike: 2 (I only wrote about one of them)
# of masters swims attempted: 1
# of son’s baseball games attended: 4
# of dinners cooked: 6
# of trips to Chipotle: 1
# of times I cried: 4 (post-masters swim, end of year slideshow, neighbor’s graduation, fall off bike)
# of times I cussed in front of my children (usually in the car, I love road rage): 5
# of times to Starbucks: 4
# of pissy comments I got on Facebook: 1
# of times I was the tooth fairy: 1
# of servings of almond butter: 6
# of dumps: 4 (yep, I never said I was regular)
About to do #5 if you know what I mean,
