So only 6 more sleeps until AROUND THE BAY!!! There are quite of few of us Ontario Bloggers running this 30km event. I know most of us have been checking the weather like mad...looks *okay*...I am a little worried about the WIND....This will be my first ATB ever so from all the stories I have heard I am not expecting any miracles with the wind/rain/weather in general... I am pretty pumped....Plus I haven't had a "race" since Chicago Marathon...it is the kick off to my Spring Race Season...
Week 10 in Review
Monday: 60mins Cycle on the Trainer...watching the Bachelor...It was awesome...actually and before that I went to Port Huron, MI to Dick's Sporting Goods and picked up two pairs of my Asics 2150's...They are last season's model but I did so well in them I figure why not keep with them for a little bit more...plus at $69.99 a pair...I couldn't go wrong...Even better is when I crossed customs I was completely honest about my purchase and the lady thought I was nuts for A) needed more than one pair of shoes and B) training for a marathon she let me through and I didn't have to pay duty!
Tuesday: 6km Tempo....Fastest tempo of this cycle! Love it...getting faster...still not at where I was but it is coming every week! This day I was starting to get a cold :(
Wednesday: Full blown cold...but I did run 12km and complete 7 hill repeats...just took it a bit easy...It was tough but oddly enough it "cleared" my nose and head for a few hours...It made me feel a bit better...
Thursday: still sick but had a great 8km steady run...it was such a gorgeous night out :)
Saturday: We moved the Long Run to Sat. 29km done and done...due to my cold I wasn't feeling that great but we someone finished it and surprisingly I felt great!
So far so good...I have taken 3 rest days so far this month and I feel like they have all been needed...If tonight goes according to plan then it will be Cross-Training #6...Also known as sit on my bike and watch TV :)
