My husband's arrival is within the next couple of hours, so I though I'd better post one more quickly since I'll be sequestered for the next week :). He keeps getting delayed though. At first it was home by 4, then 6ish, then 9ish, now 10ish...Dear lord. I had to open a bottle of cab just to keep from going crazy.

First I want to give a shout out to my girl Amy. She's doing Louisville Ironman this weekend and has been training her ass off with blood, sweat, and tears all year. I wish her all the best!!

This is what I've been up to this week -

Tuesday: 2 mile tempo, 2 x 1mile
long warm up w/ plyos
2 mile tempo/8:51 pace/177 bpm
RI - 2:18
1600 - 9:00/178 bpm
RI - 4:46
1600 - 8:45
RI - 5:21
400 - 2:00
Total: 9.4 miles
I need to get a grip on these RI. Almost 5 minutes - that's out of control! Thursday: 5k tempo
long w/up
3 miles/8:50 av pace/170 bpm

Total: 10.6 miles

I did this tempo run solo sans running group. I wasn't sure how it would play out since I wouldn't have the faster runners ahead of me, but it was all good! Saturday I have a 12 miler scheduled. Peace out.
