Happy Friday everyone!
I’ve been a good girl all week and did not attempt to run. I was very, very tempted on Wednesday. But Ron, ever the voice of reason (Did I really just write that? Hopefully he isn’t reading this. ) talked me out of it. Instead I stayed after work and jumped on a bike for an hour long spin.
One week off from running is not the end of the world. I’ve got plenty of time to make up for it before the marathon. Yesterday morning I did another ride on my bike. I was bummed that it was a cloudy morning but I still ventured down to the bay to hopefully catch the sunrise.
I got just a little peak but it was worth it. This is one of the many reasons why I love living in New Hampshire. I’m not the only one who thinks so. We were just ranked #1 as the best state to live in. Go Granite Staters! 😉
Anyway, my one week running hiatus is up on Saturday. I will be attempting a run. I don’t know how long. I’m just going out to see how it feels. My knee has felt great all week. In fact, my legs feel better than ever even though they are a little sore from using different muscles on my bike. All this week I have been living vicariously through other runners blog posts. If I can’t run, at least I can read about it! Here’s a few of my favorites.
2012 Lakewood Summer Meltdown 5k – Heather’s son wrote his own race recap for her blog. So cute! I love that he can’t wait for his Mom to sport a t-shirt that says, “Team Colin.”
Island Miles – Carrie ran 20.5 miles running loops on Maine’s Long Island. It’s only 4.1 miles long so that’s a lot of looping!
My Favorite Running Spot – I just want to run in Hawaii. That is all.
Join Me For Cross Country Practice – Virtually – I never ran cross country in high school but I would have loved to have Debbie as a coach. She means business!
Holy Crap, We Just Ran 14 Miles! – Jess and her hubby are training for their first full marathon. They hit a new PDR this week together as a team!
I’m a Half Marathoner! – Melissa just ran her first half marathon last weekend. She had a tough time but raced with heart. She even registered for a second half despite that! Congrats to Melissa!
Of course, my biggest inspiration is going to be watching all the amazing athletes during the Olympics. Can’t wait for the marathon, swimming, and gymnastics!
Have a great weekend!
