RUNNING + WORKOUTS
This week has turned out to be a fabulous week. We've had some rain here and there, but nothing major.
Saturday: 10 miles, intervals on the treadmill. + Melissa Bender (ouch!)
Sunday: 6 miles pacing my BFF at Sugarloaf.
Tuesday: 3 miles + Melissa Bender
Wednesday: 3 miles with my son on the rail trail.
Thursday: 1 hr of yoga with Rodney Yee.
Then a handstand challenge with my family. That counts, right?
Today: the plan is 3 miles.
A couple of weeks Ward suggested I do a race. I think he's nuts, but I also think it will be a great challenge for me.
Yes. It's a trail race. Oh and it's 25k. Ummm..... I haven't been running on trails. At all. But, it will be a great challenge for me. Ward did it last year and had a blast. So, why not.
Also, I know I've sworn off marathons until I turn 39. But, supporting Stacy last weekend at Sugarloaf, seeing my husband and brother-in-law kick butt and get their best PRs ever, and cheering on all of the other marathoners helped me change my mind. I am currently "shopping" for a fall marathon. I want to keep it local. Which narrows down my choices. I have it down to two right now.
The first marathon I ran was Maine. I enjoyed it very much so. Even in the pouring rain. Plus, it's only a 45 minute drive. So far this is the one.
Which is in NH. A lot further. But not super far. It's a new marathon and the course is doing a loop 2x. I do like loops. I know the logo says it's the ultimate Boston Qualifier. I'd love that. I really would. But goal #1 going into a marathon is get more marathon experience. Goal #2 - earn that PR. Goal #3 - BQ. Since I'm an older gal, my qualifying time is 3:40. I have a ton of time to take off my previous PR.
Hmmm.....decisions. What do you think?
My neighbor has rototilled my garden which means it is ready for me to get out there and get planting. Yesterday I went to the greenhouse and bought all of the seedlings I want to do and packets of seeds. I am thinking this will be a great activity to start this afternoon. Then I can finish it up Sunday or Monday, hopefully. I am happy to at least be on schedule for getting my garden going this year. Last year it was at least the middle of June!

I'm a huge fan of Pearl Izumi. The quality of their apparel is amazing. Over the years I've collected a few pieces and I've never been disappointed. A few months back, I was offered to try out a pair of the Flash Shorts.
These shorts have a nice wide waistband that sits flat at your waist and doesn't gather. This makes it incredibly flattering. This wide waistband is quite flattering for my not-so-perfect belly.
I also love the zippered back pocket. The size is perfect to fit my iPhone, keys, or fuel. Plus, zero chaffing! Sadly, I had to wait a long time to try these beauties out because the cold would not leave Maine! Now that it has, it's either my flash shorts or Spandits. I don't want to run in anything else.
