Hi, My name is Adena, I did a 5km once BUT it was at the end of a sprint triathlon, I'll just be going now. I told them I would be their sweep and asked them to be kind when they lapped me.
The course was for 6kms with a few hill repeats mixed in for fun, yay. Of course I was at the back of the pack but I was surprised at how well I did. I ran for 11 minutes in a row without walking which I haven't done before. My old smoker lungs were burning by then so I went to a run/walk, I have to say the burn felt good, like finally after all this time my lungs were starting to kick some of the crap out of them. Anne (who has run Boston) kept me company for the first 3kms and then Sonja took over doing hill repeats with me. She's injured and has such long legs that she can practically walk while I run. It was really really nice of her to take the time with me. I even did 4 hill repeats, 2 extra, before heading back, my ankle was starting to talk to me. Final wrap up, I was warm and could have ditched a layer, but I'm not sure which one, probably the arm warmers and t-shirt but that is my favourite layer.
The Barefoot Science inserts/insoles are working really well so far. At first it kind of felt like the Princess and the Pea but my feet are definitely adjusting quickly. The directions say that I should wait for the level 1 insert to become comfortable and then move up. I think I'll be moving up soon.
We got our running programs last night and since I know some of our group workouts coming up I'm going to make a shell of my training plan for the next 12 weeks in excel later today (over a glass of wine). Saturday will be our long endurance rides, Sundays are long runs. Defininitely Monday and/or Wed with Sonja and Mike for spin, a few runs on my own plus I need to throw a few swims in there.. will be nice to have it all laid out and on the fridge where I can cross out my workouts as I do them. The half marathon goal is daunting but really motivating.
I am working from home today and as I was getting my coffee cream out of the fridge this morning it occured to me since so many of you wanted to see what was in my drawers (not my underoos) I thought I would take a picture of my fridge, off the cuff, no taking out bad stuff, just let it all hang out. I have way too many condiments on the door and will be throwing most of them out on garbage, I generally only use about 5 of them week to week.
What's in YOUR fridge? Take a picture and post it on your blog or make a list and leave it in a comment here. I love to know what's in peoples fridges.
that's all I got..
oops, I lied.. go head over to Jason and Matt's blogs today. They are having a sweet potatoe challenge and I can't decide!!!
