I was supposed to go to Beloit, WI this weekend for my grandma's 80th birthday party. Sophie got sick Thursday and we were up all night Thursday, at the clinic for three hours Friday, and up all night again Friday night. So the whole driving 7 hours thing? Yeah, that didn't happen.
By this morning, I needed a little break. My in-laws got up early and came over to sit with Sophie and I headed over to Siren, WI for a 5k.
Right before we lined up for the race . . . it was steamy out! I was hoping for a little rain during race to cool us off.
I got my wish - and more! It started pouring before the race started, and kept rainin steadily throughout the race. I was soaked. I don't know if it was the heat, the rain, the sleepness nights, or the countless squats and lunges Jillian made me do yesterday, but I was s-l-o-w. Finished in 26:57. Slowest 5k in a long time. Oh well. A crappy run is still better than sitting on the couch!
Post-race. This picture does not do justice to my drowned rat look!
The race today finished up a pretty decent week of workouts:
Monday: 5.5 miles (w/5x800)
Tuesday: 3 miles easy (am), 1 hour kettlebells (pm)
Wednesday: 800 m. swim (pool hours are reduced for the rest of the summer - I had to swim quick and get my butt home to get to work)
Thursday: 3 miles easy (am), 600 m. swim (lunch)
Friday: 700 m. swim, 10 mile bike, 2 mile run
Saturday: Jillian Michaels - No More Trouble Zones DVD
Sunday: 5k race
My long run for the week is pushed to tomorow . . . hope we get a little break from the heat and humidity. For now, I'm going to spend the rest of Sophie's nap time watching a triathlon on TV. That counts as training, right?
