Rubber Chicken Relay Race Recap

image

Thanksgiving morning, it was a terrific 50-ish degrees out. I’ve never run a relay before, but having someone waiting for me totally increased my speed! Amber ran the first and third 2 mile leg, and I ran the second and forth 2 mile leg. All four of my miles were between 8:04 and 8:11. Felt pretty good about it!

Another race in the books! πŸ™‚

Turkey Trot 4 Mile Run

Fun 4 mile run this morning. It was put on by the local running club. It was sunny and nice out, started out at 51 degrees. Lots of gals that I run with and/or CrossFit with! It was nice to get my run in with these ladies! And tomorrow our running group! Hurray.

On a negative note, my foot was hurting today… It hasn’t hurt since Portland… What the hell?

Veteran’s Day 5k

Apparently, I’ve forgotten to do the recap on this race. Probably because it was freezing and I’m blocking it from my memory. It was 16 degrees at the start of the race. Flippin’ cold. And because of that very few people showed up. And because so few people showed up, I placed 3rd overall and 2nd in my age group. Fun race with a in group of ladies!

It’s Hump Day!

CrossFit in the AM and Swimming in the PM makes me one tired girl in the evening. One productive Hump Day!

And I found these memes and decided to force you to look at them too. You’re welcome.

I Did Not Drown!

Biggest news of the week: I did not drown! So Monday I officially started easing towards triathlon training. A girlfriend of mine and I did our first swimming workout. The local aquatic center lap pool has been drained, so we went to the gym instead. Which I was somewhat nervous about. But it was great! Salt water, it was roughly 80 degrees, and there were no other swimmers in the room! We swam 13 down and back lengths of the pool, which we were told was appx 1/4 of a mile. The sprint length is 1/2 of a mile, so heck, I feel like I may not drown at the actual race either!

Monday morning CrossFit was Fight Gone Bad, which is one of my favorite workouts!

After work, the girls had their CrossFit session.

Followed by our swim. And finally a lady date to Big Hero 6. Which was adorable.

Today CrossFit was incredibly exhausting!

And sadly, my bike trainer didn’t show up tonight… So no bike ride as planned… Fingers crossed for tomorrow.
