Happy Mother's Day!

I am relaxing after spending a wonderful mother's day with my family. Got in some golf with my husband and Sophie, a bike ride with my mom, and dinner with my mom, brother, and in-laws. Now Sophie is in bed and I am ready to be lazy! Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow running moms - hope you all had a wonderful day!

I wrapped up an okay training week - my last week before taper.

Monday: 3 miles easy (am), 3 miles track (pm)
Tuesday: 3.6 miles easy (am), 1 hr kettlebells (pm)
Wednesday: 1000 m. swim (am), (missed tempo run because of hurt toe!)
Thursday: 3 miles easy (am)
Friday: 1100 m. swim (am), 40 min. kettlebells (am)
Saturday: 17 miles (was supposed to be 20. I went to a very dark, angry place during this run . . . I think I vowed to give up running and devote my life to sitting on the couch eating chocolate.)
Sunday: 10 mile bike, 10 min. yoga

Anyhow . . . this happens to be my 200th post. To thank you all for putting up with me for so long, I've decided to have little giveaway. Leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Wednesday and I'll draw a winner Thursday. The winner will get some of my favorite things, plus who knows? I'll probably try to throw in things the winner may enjoy. :)

Congrats on 200 posts!! I love a little surprise giveaway. ;)

Must feel good to start taper. I'm glad your toe allowed you to run, even if it was a tough one.

Happy Mother's Day!

Congratulations on 200 posts!!! I have loved following you on your running adventures...don't you dare stop running! I guess the final weeks of marathon training can play tricks on your mind.

Sounds like an awesome weekend...just the kind I like. Happy Mothers' Day!!!

Congrats on your 200th post!!!

I think we all have runs where we question why we are not home laying on the couch instead. Hope your next one is better!

I think all of us contemplate a life of chocolate eating on the couch... heck I've managed to incorporate much of that lifestyle into my day already!!!
I hope the funk doesn't return and congrats on 200! Can't wait until your race!

Katie said...

I also want to give up and eat chocolate on the couch...but can't afford an all-new-sized wardrobe. ;) Congrats on 200!

Diana said...

Congrats on 200th post! They do add up in a hurry. I got my 500th coming up soon. May end up being my post RKC trip post!
Next time, take chocolate with you on the run.
Beats sitting on the couch eating it!

Sounds like you had a really nice Mother's Day!

Wait, you had a bad run on Saturday and you didn't share? I'm sorry! I have so been there and better Saturday than in the marathon! You had a great week, hope you can enjoy the hard earned taper this week!
Oh, and golf! That is something my hubbs and I vowed to start back up this spring! LOL! Thanks for reminding us!
Happy Mother's Day!
