It was my mom's birthday, my SIL's parents are here visiting from Moscow, and it was the last weekend before a good friend moves to Tampa. Mr.Blondie was off doing his own thing this weekend (a fishing tournament), so it was just us girls fending for ourselves.
We had no problems making it here on the first flight of the day on Friday.
I started off Saturday with a spin class and a 2 mile run at the gym. Tough crowd there. I showed up 5 minutes before the start of class and not a single bike was available. I'd signed up for a bike when I got to the gym 20 minutes earlier. The instructor had to pull out the sign-in sheet and take a roll call to single out who didn't belong so I could get a bike. No one would 'fess up. Awkward, but be nice and play by the rules people.
We had a party planned for Saturday night to celebrate all the above stated occasions that turned into low-key "Hurricane Party", since a lot of people ended up not being able to attend.
We had delicious food like grilled shrimp kebabs and strawberry shortcake, and more questionable items like "Sardine Sandwiches" with garlic mayo and tomatoes...courtesy of the Russian contingent at our house. We had to try it to be courteous. My kid who won't touch PB&J loved them. She's so weird sometimes.
Fortunately we didn't get much more than a little wind and some heavy rain, but it was enough to keep me inside for my run on Sunday too.
I did an easy 9 miles on my parents treadmill. That wasn't the sky, just me raining on the treadmill. Yeah, I'm a super gross sweater.
My workouts following last week's race looked like this:
Sunday: 6 mi run outside (hilly route) in 48:53, core, stretching
Monday: 1 hr spinning, 2 mi TM (@7.0, 1% incline)
Tuesday: PT Trigger Point Needling session
Wednesday AM: 2 mi TM (@7.0, 1% incline), core, stretching
Wednesday PM: 6 mi run outside (hilly route) in 50:05
Thursday: 1 hr spinning, 2 mi TM (@7.0, 1% incline)
Saturday: 1 hr spinning, 2 mi TM (@7.0, 1% incline)
Sunday: 9 mi TM (@7.0, 1% incline), stretching
Totals: 29 miles run, 3 hours spinning
Remember when I told you about my 1st marathon experience? Here's the proof in all it's glory. My mom has this gem framed and hanging in the gym area of the house. (Love those shiny blue tights)
|I was too delirious to even pretend I wasn't hurting|
Hoping to get a flight back sometime soon, after the airports are straightened out. See y'all back in the ATL...eventually. Many T&P's for those of you in the hurricane zone.
