I know... I have been MIA lately. It is hard to believe that I used to write blogs everyday (sometimes twice a day), but since the kids have been home from school, I just haven't found the time. I have made time to keep up with your posts and comment on some... but I have decided to MAKE time for the blog.
It has been VERY hot here. In preparations of my marathon training, I have been consistent with the runs, but just haven't gone long distances. I think my average is 4.5 miles during the week. I have also started to cross train in the pool. I did 1000 m on Tuesday. This of course was broken up during each adult swim. My kids serve as my lap counters... so I can keep an "eye" on them while I swim. I haven't gotten to the part where I am timing myself yet... but will start on Monday (official marathon training start day).
Tonight, Bob and I will run 6 miles in King Farm (a nice neighborhood near us). I have missed running with him. It has been a week. He did send me some videos from him phone that he took, but we will attempt them with a real video camera this week. We are also planning to go to DC and run along the Potomac for our long run this Saturday. My husband doesn't understand why we need to drive to run, but I know that you all understand how mundane the same course can be.
It started off that I DID NOT want to have a birthday party when her friends. Don't shoot me: I just think that birthday parties here in MoCo, MD have been taken over board... we once got a $20 gift card to Toys-R-Us in our goodie bag - see what I mean... OVER THE TOP!
