Catching Up

I've been swamped. Not so much the working hard variety (although there's been some of that), but more the playing hard variety. We were up at a friend's cabin this weekend and had a super fun time. Even managed to fit in a run (to the bar to pick up our truck - aren't we responsible?). With all the um, business, I only managed 13 miles last week.

Time to get back at it. I'm headed to the track after work and hoping to get in a good, hard workout before I need to hurry home, shower, and go to a meeting. If I get home early enough from the meeting, I'm also planning on doing a little 30 Day Shred. I have my big 50-mile bike "race" coming up on Saturday, so my plan is to work my legs hard in the beginning of the week and then take it easy so they are nice and rested for Saturday.

Looking forward to also catching up with all of your blogs. Happy Monday!

Hi Heather,

I apologize I am writing to you a comment on your site. This is not a spam. I just didn't find your email to send you a direct email so I chose this solution. You can delete this comment anytime.

My name is Ana. I am a publisher on This is a site me and a couple of my friends own and where we post reviews on treadmills we test ourselves.

Our website is pretty young and we need the support to reach our
targeted audience (people interested in running). I wanted to ask you if you would like to help us and publish our link in your blog. I have read some of your posts and I think the themes on our websites match.

As an alternative, if you agree we can send you a short review about
our work and you to post it on your blog after reviewing it. This
would mean a lot and we would highly appreciate it.

If you have the time I invite you to see our site and have some fun
with our quizzes. After reading your blog I think you would like this one especially:

I really hope you enjoy it and I look forward to your reply and feedback.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my email,

Always better to be swamped with playing and not working, in my opinion!

Jeri said...

Sometimes I actually relish the run to pick up my car after a hard night. It always kinda sucks but then you feel sooo better afterwards!
