Week 3: Race Time!

As much as I tried to be a diligent runner, The Coach had to listen to me beg permission to skip some runs. Considering a very difficult half marathon course was on the horizon for the week's long run, I couldn't justify heading out into a dark, cold, wet night when I was having some Meniere's symptoms. Happily he gave me a pass. However, this meant I really only got in one 5 mile run before the half. I was fine with that. The run was challenging, but still I noticed my overall speed picking up. It gave me some confidence going into the race - which I'll post about next.

Swim class was really fun this week. Our teacher worked us hard. I left all 3 classes feeling tired and sore. I love it!! We had a bunch of races up and down the pool on Wednesday. Being a fan of running in races, I pushed hard so I wouldn't lose any of these silly swimming races. It made for an excellent work-out.

Not much else to report. My focus was on the weekend ... shopping, eating, friends and a little bit o' running on the side, too!
