Life Update

Running

Ok, I've gotten through the first week of quality (speed) work-outs. I woke up this morning again at 4:45am and I was already sore from 3 workouts this week. I decided once marathon training started I would also get back to my core work-outs and serious ab time. Probably not smart to do this all on the same day but that is just what I did, hence the reason I was ultra sore this am.

Today's schedule called for 5 X 1000m around the Zilker tree. This is the work-out I mentally prepared myself for only to show up and find out I had to go do a 2mi time trial. Lucky Me!! My butt and quads feel like cement blocks hanging out of my hip sockets and my oblique muscles are howling. I must confess after all of that it's great to be sore, to know I'm pushing my limits again. And yes, I pulled off my 2mi TT in 15:17. I am ecstatic with the way this season is starting. Granted I've still got to crank out a 12 mile run on Saturday and a 45 minute run on Sunday. It's all good!


Dating


For the record I did hit my goal and go on a date with a boy from the online world. He was a NGB (nice guy but...) no chemistry. Yes, that is a very important part of dating. I've got plenty of guy friends and I'm not interviewing for that position at this time. I do have another date tomorrow with a friend of a friend. Life is good!!

i read it too... but really wish you'd step up to the plate and write more. it's annoying to check it everyday and read the same thing for 2 weeks!
; )

Excuse me, excuse me...apparently someone can't do math, Wiley. I've been writing more often than that. However, now that I know you read it just maybe i'll write more.;)

I'm reading too. Way to kick ass in the time trial!

Katie said...

Thanks Mike! I was excited since I half-ass ran this summer.

Hopefully your back gets better and you can continue to smoke my ass!!

Mike said...

Whoa, wait a min. A lot of crazy stuff happened at the PR party but I don't remember smoking any ass.
