Yeah, I'm a bit of an internet slacker lately. Obvious much?
Last week's training was vastly impacted by my trainer kicking my a$$ at strength training Tuesday morning. I switched out speed work for miles on Wednesday, and was recovered enough to still run my 20 mile run on Saturday. With Easter, I took Sunday off. Plus, my ankle and foot tendons were tight on Sunday, so I would have taken the day off anyway.
|What she means is that she took the day off to play fun games with me.|
Monday: Rest day
Tuesday: 6 mile recovery run, 1 hour strength training, leg focus
Wednesday: 6 mile sore run, 9:50 min/mile avg

Saturday: Ran 20.2 miles, 10:27 min/mile avg
Sunday: Rest Day
I made a delicious Easter dinner on Sunday, surprised Avery with an egg hunt and an Easter basket. She gave the choir and brass ensemble at church a standing, cheering ovation, which entertained most of those sitting near us.
|They all live for my applause|
I've also been coming up with fun cold weather solutions for Avery's cabin fever.
Tuesday we went to the book store and played in the kids' book section until the mall opened. Then she enjoyed the mall playground until she tried take a nap on the bench next to it.
|This is MY kind of hill work.|
|Next you play with the blue one...|
|You put the blue scooter back in it's spot...|
|Now the red one...|
I spent last night on a Mom's Night out to dinner...and got typsy on a couple of glasses of wine. That's right, if I didn't like fancier wines, I'd be a cheap date. HA! I actually skipped my morning run this morning as result. "Feels like 20*F" when I feel slightly hungover from 2.5 glasses of wine just wasn't happening. Luckily, my running wife agreed to the cancellation. Of course, Avery doesn't believe in sleeping in past 6:15 am, so my reprieve was short lived. The current plan is to run after nap. The plan is that I will load the kiddo into the jogging stroller, run to a park about 2.5 miles away and let her play, then run back home. If the weather stays as promised.
How else did I slack this week? I did all of the runs for the Jellybean virtual races and the Running with Spatulas virtual race....and reported NONE of them to the virtual race sites. I think this is my problem with virtual racing...I'm too lazy. HA. If you can figure that one out...
How as your training week???
Anyone else being an internet slacker? (I guess you won't be commenting if you are...ha)
What's the best way you've slacked in the last week?
