I know it's not Sunday, but I'm pretending right now.
Last night (when it really was Sunday), just as I was about to start on the Sunday report, Noah came out of his room sobbing. At first I thought it was a nightmare, but it actually turned out to be an earache. Poor kid was beside himself. I gave him some medicine and brought him downstairs to snuggle by the fire, and he ended up falling asleep in my lap. It's been a really long time since that has happened, and I have to tell you it was just delicious. That is something I'm going to put in the bank to pull out the day he starts driving or something like that.
So, needless to say, I didn't get the Sunday Report done on Sunday, so now I'm pretending it's Sunday so I can get the Sunday report done. I guess I could just call it the Monday report today, but, for some very strange reason, I just don't feel okay with that.
I had a great training week in many respects last week. It was my first week back to running since the beginning of December, and I ran 5 days. Coach Mary and I are experimenting with more days of running per week, but less time of running each day to see how that works with my creaky old self. I have to admit that every single minute of my running this week was on a treadmill, mostly because I have a hard time justifying getting all suited up to run sub-freezing temps for a run that is 15 minutes. Seriously, it would take me longer to get dressed than it would to run, and since my treadmill is two steps from my family room, I went that route. I do miss running outside, though, and might try to get at least one run outdoors this week.
I also had my first long ride since Syracuse 70.3 (um, yeah, that was in September....I've been busy!). A two hour trainer ride, 90 minutes zone 2 and 30 minutes zone 3.
It was not pretty. Let's just leave it at that.
Here are the numbers:
Swim: 1h 30m 4550 yds (Do you think the pool missed me?)
Bike: 4h 58m 35s trainer/spin class
Run: 1h 48m 47s 10.73 mi
Yoga and TRX: 2h
Total: 10h 17m 22s
All in all a very good week. I now return you to your regularly scheduled Monday. Thank you.
