crazy. I see pix like this and still think it's a
good idea to sign up for the event.
I can already see that he'll spot one element that is missing - the treadmill hill work, but I'll let him figure out where to shoehorn that into the schedule. (I have an idea of where I would put it, but I want to see if he thinks that makes sense.) In the meantime, I am pretty pleased with how I managed to fit in all the key elements I need, including allowing for a couple of mid-summer races, all while having the kids off of school. It ain't easy being a running mom....

The Week So Far
Workouts this week have started out well enough. I am back to full distance/workout time, after two weeks of taking it relatively easy after the Half Marathon. Both yoga classes have been great, and I've managed to ramp back up to six miles for my mid-week runs and 6K for my mid-week rows. Tomorrow I am scheduled for another six-mile run, so we'll see how that goes... With the Little Guy's pre-school year coming to an end, I've had to get up early to fit in my workouts, and it is starting to take a toll. Tomorrow's 5 a.m. wake-up call will not be easy. At least living in the North, the sun rises before any sane person would be out of bed. That makes the early reveille easier to take.
Totally Random - Food for Thought
Reading through a Facebook posting by Stern Magazine, I found this blog called Never Seconds that I think is brilliant. It's so simple but really very intriguing to read through. A primary school student in the UK is documenting her school lunch. Simple, right? I think I like it because it brings up all sorts of thoughts I have on the situation, especially now that E. has started grade school. The cafeteria lunches leave something to be desired, and I am appalled by how "healthy food" looks a lot like the crap I "treat" my family to once in a while. (Corn dogs? Really?) Anyway, E. has packed a lunch for all but one or two days all year. Mostly, I think she is worried that on those rare occasions that they do offer a vegetarian option that they'll run out and she'd have to take the meat option. To play it safe, she'd rather pack lunch in. That's a far cry from LG who vacillates between announcing to anyone who will listen in restaurants, "Yuck, that's meat!" and bemoaning the fact that he can't try ham. Why he's picked ham, I don't know. Anyway, check it out if you are interested.
