Last Week in Review

Last week was the first full week of just training, cleaning the house, taking care of my little one. I could get used to this!! But as we all know, the bills wouldn't get paid, I wouldn't have any extra cash to spend on my nasty Triathlon habit (hey its better than cigarettes!! BLECK!) and spoil my loved ones. So I will enjoy it while it lasts!

The beginning of the week was great, mid week was tough, the weekend was awesome. Its like a bad musical, starts out great, gets boring and the end you are out of your seat praising it is done. ha ha! No, it really was a good week.

I was asked to start giving some articles about anything triathlon, biking related to a local bike shop that my honey works at. Did I mention I get stuff pretty cheap?!! It pays to have a bike shop worker in the family!!! YES!! I win! But anyways, I don't know where to begin on this one, so if you have any Ideas for posting, let me know!

Yesterday was a gorgeous run!! Its been sunny here for the past couple of days. You know when it is sunny when all sorts of people come out of the woodwork. You know what I mean! LOL! Anyways, I heard the most beautiful sounds of the lake swirling around, the birds singing, the footsteps of other runners, the laughing of little children. I took it all in. I even heard some geese arguing with each other. Well at least thats what it sounded like to me. It was actually quite amusing.

I took a run to 370 which is a road going out to Baldwinsville. I needed some hills. I needed some redemption. Hills have been kicking my *ss lately and I am not liking it at all. So, I ran through Onondaga lake parkway, to 370 and back. Now I was going about 9:30 out, when I turned around I was keeping low 8's for about 15 min. while still keeping in the HR zone. Now you see some of the nice inclines 370 has. I love this road, although it definately has took a beating from the plows this winter. I trained on this road alot when I did Lake Placid Marathon. It has wide shoulders and rolling hills. Nice combo.

My mom, daughter and I went and watched PROM. I predicted the movie from start to finish within the 5 min of the movie beginning. This is why the movie wasn't great to me, but of course my 7 year old loved it. I personally wanted to watch RIO but no, instead we watched how teenagers act getting ready for their senior prom. GAG!
Well all that counts is my mom and daughter enjoyed it I guess.

We went to some awesome Mexican restaurant for dinner. Fresh Mex in Baldwinsville. I got Nachos and only ate about a 1/4 of them as they pile your plate to the ceiling! Geesh! I looked at the honey and told him we shouldve shared as he got the same thing!

All in all it was a great week!!
