Things are looking pretty good here in B.o.B.-land. I am said to say however, that like all good things, the Week of Sloth has come to an end. I hit it hard this weekend, and now I must repent. Carbs, wine, and couch – be gone! This little lady is ready to hit the streets again.
I signed up for a 5K on the 27th (let’s see how fast I can go!).
AND the bigger news…
First Triathlon – July 31st. Look out sharks and minnows here I come!
I’m pretty pumped about the above to events, but am also excited about my sister’s wedding this weekend. It should be a good time. I’m very sure that the stanky leg, cabbage patch, and running man will all make an appearance. I’ll try to get a video and some photos so you can all see my mad dancing skills. These are basically the same three or four moves over and over and over. Word!
I did get a 6 miler in on Saturday and was sore and slow. But hey, I just ran a marathon. I also got up at the butt crack of dawn today to meet Speedy Jess for some hills. I ran a whopping 4 and felt good, but not great. I have to hand it to those who are training for Boston. The rest of us are relaxing and they are out there everyday workin’ it. You go BQ’ers!
By the way, I saw the new Alice in Wonderland yesterday, and as a HUGE Alice fan, I must say they did a great job. Any Tim Burton, Helena Bonham Carter, and Johnny Depp collabo really hits the spot on a Sunday. “Off with his head!”
I’m off to work now. Have a super Monday. Toodles.
Wow – a you're gonna do a TRI?! You'll do great, I know! I was just thinking yesterday how I'm not sure I'll ever do one of those….as I was biking 15 dang miles! LOL
Yay for a TRI! Good thing you excel at running and swimming so when you do the bike part with your training wheels on you'll have already be well ahead of everyone! 🙂 J/K Love you Boo!!! Week o' Sloth be gone!
wooohooo! first triathlon on deck!!
Go Tri girl! I'll be hitting the bike as my slothfullness must end somehow.
Yay for the tri- that's about the same time I'm doing my first tri, so we can virtual train together. 🙂
the transition to a tri!!! yay girl 🙂
Yay, a tri – that should make training a bit more varied! Enjoy the week.
Wow! A Tri! I bow down in your excellence! I am super excited to read about the training for this! And great job on getting out there this weekend for your recovery runs! Happy Monday!
Alice in Wonderland was awesome!
Glad to hear you are back at it. I am sure you will feel better as you start training again. Those first runs after an event always suck.
After I hopefully meet my goal of running my 1st 1/2 this weekend I think I'm going to go for a duathlon. I just think the swimming would kill me in a tri. My swim is just a modified dog paddle.
Our little girl is growing up so fast! A tri????
ATTA GIRL. I knew you could step up! What distance? Which race?
You rock! Seeing you out at hills this morning made me smile even though I was freezing and tired! Hold that head high for getting up at 0-dark-thirty, only a week after your marathon to run uphill in the freezing temps!!! You are going to be smoking in that 5K! Can't wait to hear about yet another PR!!!
First tri- yeahyeahyeahyeahyeah :))))
The post marathon glow is shining through! Your new adventure sounds good and I can't wait to hear how it goes. And I think you're crazy for doing hills right after a marathon! You are supergirl!
Triathlon! Go girl go!! you'll do great. So inspiring 🙂
Mmm, I want wine now. 😉
That was basically the only kind of dancing at my wedding. It was fantastic!
warning: tri's are addictive. you cannot only do one.
i am waiting with baited breath to see the dancing spectacle. it should be amazing i'm sure.
Boogie till you just can't boogie no more girl 🙂 …Yay for the tri!! I am very impressed!
The triathlon sounds great! It'll be fun to train for it.
Have an excellent time at the wedding!
yay for the triathlon! don't worry once you start getting back out there it will all come back 🙂 Have fun at your sisters wedding!
Good luck with the tri! I've always been a lotta nervous to do one. Have fun!
Wait a minute. You just ran a marathon and you're already back to running? I'm sick of running and I still have two weeks to go!
Congrats on the tri commitment. I will *never* do one, unless I can get a stand-in for the swimming leg. I just *do not* like swimming enough…
i don't know about all the boston-ers out there workin' it… you should see my running log 😉 haha.
i wish i bounced back from marathoning as well as you! i think i'm still longing for the couch even though NYC was 4+ months ago 🙂
it is not the minnows and sharks we are worried about – it is the squirrels and frogs on the road we are worried about as you careem out of control on your tricycle! 🙂
