Wow, Wednesday already??

Ok lots of catching up to do, starting with the weekend:

Saturday 12.25 miles/1:51:59/9:08 average pace

So my girlfriends arrived Friday and we had a late night of visiting and wine-drinking, but I did get up with Zach for our long run. Sure, we got a late start, but we did it. I ran with Zach for the first 4 or 5 miles, then turned on my iPod and finished it out alone. Felt really good and my pace was even.

I finished the week with 28.25 miles total, plus 2100 m swimming (I think I forgot to log Thursday's swim).

The rest of the weekend was wonderful. The girls left on Monday afternoon and I've been completely wiped out since. I slept all afternoon Monday and yesterday I came home from work at noon and slept/rested all afternoon. I don't think I'm sick, just absolutely exhausted from my super fun girls weekend.

I did get up yesterday morning for a run (which was supposed to happen Monday):

Tuesday 4.0 miles/38:12/9:33 average pace

I actually felt really good on the run, but I think I used all my energy up before I even got to work. I slept in this morning though, rather than going swimming, but I'm running tonight and will be back on track finally.

Here's some pics:

Hey Jen...SOunds like some awesome times with da Chicas :-) love the pics.

u look like ur all business with that Guitar...Rock on Dude !!

Here is a tip about that workbook...find a part on ur body that might have some aches...maybe quads or calf...

then LOOK up in the BOOK about trigger points in Quads/thighs then start to feel around for them, u will find some tender points and be amazed how u feel when u break up a few of those knots...

I agree with Kelsalynn = wine with best friends is the best time ever!

Sweet long run!

All that guitar strumming is hard work eh?

Great photos - your B&Ws always look good.

GG Park is so big - we missed the Conservatory of Flowers - perhaps on the next trip :)
