Let's just say that last week was an insane workweek - though that is at least partly an excuse. I did blow off work Thursday and get in a nice LSAR (long slow ass run) with Susan on a beautiful, sunny (if a bit cold) Thursday morning. Susan and I did our "standard" Katy Trail 8.4 miles (trailhead to Lewis and Clark marker at the river overlook and back).
Not sure why in my complete laziness of Thursday (workwise) that I didn't write this blog post then. Must have been the Halloween candy coma. Yeah, the eating hasn't been stellar. But the good news is that I passed the 300 miles run for the year mark. This is pretty huge for me because a year ago, I wasn't really running at all. Ok, so not ALL of those miles were "running", but mixtures of jogging/walking. Still - huge for me.
Had scheduled about a 30 mile bike ride with Walter for Saturday morning, but didn't count on a childcare snafu (both grandparents busy and I didn't have a backup plan). It was a warm and sunny day (though crazy windy). I had a couple hours of freedom in the afternoon while daughter was at a scout event and son was deer hunting with dad. I just didn't drag my ass out the door to get in the workout I should have. So the bike and swim distances are stagnant this week. With only 8 weeks to go, it is going to be tough to hit these goals. Maybe even impossible. But we'll see. The HBBC kicks off next week and might be just what is needed to get me moving. This week I'm out of town for a couple days and the kids have early release tomorrow.
