For the first time in years, I took off a week for vacation. I am so excited! The best part is that today I am driving to my dad's house in Ohio to pick him up and bring him back for a week with us. YEAH! I am looking forward to a great week off with photos to share.

I planned a long run this morning but stayed up way too late so dropped it down to a 3 miler. The weather was perfect and I felt good.

I am about ready to doze off but want to catch up. I've been so busy. Work has been hectic. My training is increasing. My MIL is still adjusting and needing help. My hubby is still off on diability for the pain in his neck and shoulder which they are unable to find the cause of. Oh- and I have 2 teenagers.

Now that I have all my whining done----

Last night the weather was much cooler and the skies were filled with storms. I went to spin class and had a good workout. I really turned the resistance up on the hills.
Tonight , I went for an easy 4mile run. I didn't watch my time just enjoyed the cool evening air.

I have taken a look at my upcoming schedule. I signed up for Powerman Ohio in September and never took at good look at the Distance. I know it's not an Ironman but I definitely am going to have to buckle down. 5 mile run/40 mile bike/ 5 mile run. Just roughly about 4.5 hours. That's like a marathon. I really need to look at my miles.

SUNDAY : RUN / 5.5 MILES / 1:17 / 10R:1W
MONDAY: RUN / 3.0 MILES / 5 min w.u.-30min-5 min. c.d.

After the big day on Saturday, I was tired Sunday but I did get some miles in at the prairie. The weather was perfect for me. It was cloudy and 65. As I started out, I looked to my left and saw that I was running beside the bike section of the Subaru Women's Triathlon. What a great turnout. I yelled out a big Wahoo.

Tonight's weather was the opposite-hot and humid. I felt good but slow.
Tomorrow is Hooch's 17th birthday. I guess we'll be having a few kid at the house. I can't believe she has grown into such an awesome lady so fast.
