Goofy 17.5/Wine & Dine Half Marathon 1.5

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Very miscellaneous blog from Sunday. I squeezed in a training run of about 10k, and it went better than Saturday's, although still pretty tiring and labored. I'm still fighting the ear infection, unfortunately, even though I had almost convinced myself that it was getting better! I also took Timmy shopping for some "big boy shoes," and did some more running-related shopping (not the kind where I actually spend money, just the kind where I "window shop" online and make lists of things I want lol...)

    Thanks to you i have opted for a slice of that cheese too. You did an outstanding job of comparing the two HM's and again, thank you. See you there!

Timmy and the baby bunnies...how precious. What a true gem little Timmy is and how proud you must be. You are such a good Mommy! Maybe a little nutso at times ;-)...but a good Mommy despite that fact LOL.

Hope your ear FINALLY clears up this week! You too, huh?

Goofy 17.4/Wine & Dine Half Marathon 1.4

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I'm a couple of days behind on blogging, so this entry is for Saturday. I struggled through a very tiring, overheated training run (that ended up being a walk) but in better news, I finally fit into a running skirt that's basically been too tight since I bought it! There's always a silver lining. *Grin*

Goofy 17.3/Wine & Dine Half Marathon 1.3

Friday, August 26, 2011

Last night, I was able to get out for my first training run since Madison Mini Marathon. I'm happy to report that it was a success! I think I'm just about over my illness *knock on wood* and my post-race "recovery" is feeling very much like a non-event. My decision to take it easy in last Saturday's half, definitely a good one. Just five weeks and one day until Wine & Dine half marathon. I am psyched!

Goofy 17.2/Wine & Dine Half Marathon 1.2

Thursday, August 25, 2011

I hoped to start training for W&D last night, but as luck would have it, my ear infection is still keeping me out of the running (literally). So I took another easy rest day yesterday (other than some Wii workouts...), continued to contemplate my future racing schedule (too many races, too little time), and thought about the impending arrival of my favorite season of the year...FALL!

Goofy 17.1/Wine & Dine Half Marathon 1.1

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

I'm still up on cloud nine after the Madison Mini Marathon, but it's time to shift gears and think about my next event, the Wine & Dine Half Marathon (at Disney World!!) in six weeks. Last night, I was due for my first post-Madison Mini training run, an easy four miles, but my bum ear was making that kind of impossible. So instead, I took it easy and spent some time sketching out ideas for my 2012 racing schedule. NEVER too soon to start planning! Here's a link to last night's training/planning blog, with a (tentative) 2012 racing calendar!

    Wow! Your racing schedule is filling up fast for '12!! Love it!! I'm so in for the WI HM but how is the Madison one in May? Did you like it? Is it like the Mini? Will consider that one too, if you recommend it. :)

    Hi! I'll be at WDW that weekend, too, but only doing the 5k, as I'm still recovering from ACL surgery. Have a great time and tell us all about it! Also, I'm doing the Donald and the Chip n Dale relay in January, so I hope we get to meet up some day at one of these events.

Good luck and happy training!

    RB, I made the comment to Jim that Wisconsin races are seriously on my radar scope since it is a relatively short drive for us. It just seems to me so far that Wisconsin does it right! And yes, Door County is on my bucket list as is Whistlestop at Ashland, WI. SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!
