Good Week with a PR

The past week has been great in terms of spending Memorial Day with good people and getting a lot of physical activity in.

Despite some knee swelling, I earned myself a PR that wasn’t expected.  Overall, I’m happy with the results. 

May go for a long tomorrow.

Ah, My Weakness

Every now and then I MUST have this combo!  Such a vice is sometimes needed.  🙂

What a Walk!

My speed has fully returned.  It’s been some time since I ‘ve been able to accomplish this. 

I look forward to increasing my walking and running speeds soon.

Hi, Again!

It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted anything.  To begin, I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year and holiday season.  Things have been busy on my end, including my little 17 month old tyrant and my daughter turning 16.  🙂

Last night, I announced to my husband and daughter that I want to try to qualify for the 2016 Olympic Marathon Trials.  They’re both very supportive and understand what this means for all of us.  Loads of time training, most of my free time spent pounding the pavement, and lots of pain on my end.  The last time I trained for and finished a marathon was in 2011.  I will be 38 next month and I’m still active.  I’m ready for the challenge and will train hard to reach my goal.  Even if I don’t qualify, the journey itself promises to be amazing.

Back to Work

I started maternity leave on 8/31/12 and return to work tomorrow.  I will miss being with my little guy, but leaving the house regularly will be a nice change of pace. 

Of course, I will be checking on him constantly and requesting pics throughout each day!  🙂

Next…marathon training again!
