Thanks again for all the comments on the Boston stuff! I got my marathonfoto order in the mail (thanks mom!!) and will add that to my wall of glory, haha. But seriously, I have one.
And Phil, I met Bill Rodgers at the marathon Expo, which is also where I met Grete Waitz, Carrie Tollefson, Sarah Slattery, and Amy Rudolph. I met Kathy Switzer at Bill Rodger's Running Store the day after the marathon. :)
So I have been a busy girl! I took a solid week OFF after Boston, doing nothing. I didn't even go to work. :) The following week I did some light stuff... swimming, walked to work, elliptical, but NO running. This week, I'm back in action!
Sunday: 30 laps = 1500 meters swim in just under 40 minutes.
Wow- that's far! Nearly a mile! Who am I??? Needless to say, that's a swimming distance record for me. :)
Monday: 3.0 miles/27:41/9:14 average pace
Aw yea, Aw yea, I ran, I ran! Felt fantastical. No pain whatsoever. Yay! Also, walked to work this day.
Tuesday: 20 laps = 1000 meters swim in 25 minutes in morning, Weights with Zach in the evening.
I am really doing great in the pool and don't need to rest practically at all. I'm still pretty slow, but that's fine. I think I've got good form and that's what matters. As for the weights, OW, I am sore today.
And now, the rest of the week:
Wednesday: Group run 3 miles (YAY group!! It has been months!), plus I walked to work (in the rain, luckily I wore my Boston jacket and it protected me)
Thursday: swim in morning
Saturday: 5 or so mile run with Zach
Also, Saturday or Sunday: BIKE! My bike is ready - I visited it yesterday- but Zach's won't be ready till the weekend. Then we're ready to roll. I'll definitely post pictures.
