My week in a nutshell...

Monday- I did a round of bricks 5 miles bike, 1 mile run, etc... I ended up doing 20 miles on bike, 3 mile run with 10 minute cooldown

Tuesday- Elliptical 30 min. Weight training 45 min

Wednesday- Elliptical 20 min. Spin Class 45 min. In the afternoon headed out for a 30 mile bike ride on the Silver Comet. I fell 2xs trying to clip out of my shoes. I know that I looked so silly, like a weeble I wobbled and I fell down. Very sore today

Thursday- Elliptical 10 min. Weight training 45 min.

School is great. I have 13 adorable pre-k children. We are learning about our Community Helpers. My husband came by in his Waste truck to show the kids how it worked. They are so excited, some cried, others jumped for joy.

I hope all of you have had a great week.
Keep training. Keep dreaming.

10k Classic

I decided to still run the 10k on Labor Day in honor of my dad. I was so tired from Sunday (Dad's memorial) but I really wanted to do it.
Hubby got up with me. I tried to convince him to run with me but he said, No way. Maybe next year. He dropped me off at Cumberland Mall at 6:15 am and headed down Cobb Parkway to the finish. They close Cobb Pkwy at 6:30. I went to the bathroom before lines got really long. I did some stretches and ran for about 30 min. to get ready.
It took me about 1:05 according to my watch. The official time was 1:19 min.

It was the hardest race, even though it was not my longest race it just seemed to wear me out. I cried most of the way. I am sore and over worked but it was worth it.
