The Sunday Report

Aren't Sundays so bittersweet?

I've had a pretty good week.  This week was my last crazy week of the semester.  I taught Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, had a performance on Thursday night, and graded a recital Saturday night all in Ithaca.  The semester is really winding down from here, and I'm really looking forward to returning to a more normal routine for the summer.

Despite all of the craziness and travel this week, I was still able to get in a pretty good week of training.  I didn't hit all of my workouts, but when you lead a crazy life, you pretty much take what you can get!

Swim:  45m 2000 yds
Bike: 5h 1m 58s 47.57 mi
Run:  2h 52m 18s 17.33 mi

Total:  8h 39m 16s

I am especially pleased with my run numbers.  I'm starting to feel stronger on each and every run.  I have also started to remind myself on a daily basis that "I am a runner."  This may seem kind of silly, but I find it helps me so much to speak that which (I want to) believe.  I may not be there yet, but I believe in the power of words to help us reach goals.  You should try it!!

This week Ryan is on spring break, so after working M-W, Ryan, Noah and I are going to have some quality mommy time.  I'm not sure how these plans will mesh with training, but life goes on!!

Have a great week!


  1. Nice week Kelly! Keep up the great work!

  2. Great job this week! I totally know what you mean about being a runner. Have a good week!

  3. haha about "I am a runner." I tell myself "I am a swimmer" but it's not helping!

  4. Nice week, I hear ya on busy weeks. You got what you could in, and the numbers still look good! Hope you have a great week!

  5. You are right positive words do work. I try to do it all the time.
