Some Saturday Stuff!

Happy weekend everyone!!!!!

I have been loving my weekends lately. Training for a marathon and teaching first graders full time is just plain exhausting so I love having nothing to do on Saturdays and Sundays! Today is one of those freeze-your-face-off days where staying cozy inside is certainly appealing. :)

This week was a scale back week in training and I was very grateful. I enjoy ramping up the mileage don't get me wrong, but there are times when I also enjoy a little break. ;)

On Tuesday we had a snow day! It was so nice to have the day off but the conditions outside were deplorable! Snow, ice, freezing pellets and wind. The weather did calm down a bit in the evening and I strapped on my Yak Trax for a run. Other than a couple of cars I saw no one. I was so impressed at the great footing the spikes gave me. I literally only use them once or twice a year but when I do I am reminded at what a good investment they were!


 Winter came back, AGAIN so Lola has been sporting her sweater and loves it just as much...NOT! lol.

I scoured every inch of the Boston expo last year for one of these Momentum Boston wraps and came up empty handed. :( This year I decided to order one as my one month Boston Train-aversary...lol. Yes, it's a word, maybe???

With the icy streets I was glad that we had our bi-weekly speed session at the Canada Games Centre this past Wednesday with Coach Ian and the BLT Runners.

My Garmin was nutso and kept stopping/pausing and just plain being cranky. It did give me this at the end but it was no where near what Stacey and Marg ended up with so I just deleted it and copied their data since we ran together!

Apparently it was "Blue" night. Maybe for our Valentine's day session we can all wear Pink and Red!!!

Speaking of Valentine's Day I sent Matt this Giordanos screen shot and drooled uncontrollably.

Oh, and yesterday was Groundhog Day! As I'm sure you're aware. My class was so excited lol. We changed our light up sign and watched Shubenacadie Sam on the live feed.
 Apparently we are in for an early Spring? Yeah, we'll see Sam!

Matt and I got our Chicago Marathon Race Results books! It took me an embarrassingly long time to find my name even though I knew my net time to the second---the reason being I was looking in the Males section! LOL.

 This morning's run was so COLD!!!

It took me longer to get dressed and prepped than it did to run the 5 miles and 8 strides, no joke.

 
And I'm off...

 Lola says, "Hi." <3

How was your week in training???

Thanks for visiting guys!

Happy running,
Heather :)
