Pain in the Neck

This was a great week for marathon training - perfect weather, high energy, great workouts.

Monday: AM 3 easy miles, PM 5 miles (with 6 x 800)
Tuesday: 1 hour kettlebells
Wednesday: AM 900 m. swim, PM 6 miles tempo (into the WIND and I still nailed it!)
Thursday: 10 mile bike
Saturday: 20 miles
Sunday . . . just waiting for Sophie to wake up from her nap and my mom to get here and we are headed out for a bike ride. I might also try to fit in some yoga later after the family leaves.

I did something goofy during kettlebells Tuesday night and my neck has been hurting ever since. It started to get a little better, but by bedtime last night it was screaming. I think it was a combination of the 20 miler, two hours raking the yard, and the Mariokart championship with my hubby that pushed it over the edge . . . anyhow, when I was up at 5:30 this morning watching Curious George (isn' t that what everyone does at 5:30 on Sunday morning?) it started spasming. Lovely. I think I'll be at the chiro tomorrow!

Hi Heather,
Nice work on your training! Do you like Yoga? I attempted it when I was in my twenties and I wasn't digging it...I wonder if I would like it now? Sorry about the neck, take care of you:)
