40,000 of your closet friends

Thursday is my FRIDAY!

Heading out of town to enjoy the Cooper Bridge Run (40,000 runners for this 10k) on Saturday followed by the Bridge Ride on Sunday. A total girls weekend!

Notable Workouts for this past week:

Tuesday night is our local ride here where anywhere from 150-350 cyclist show up on any given Tuesday. A smaller group of about 12 headed out together making our way through the country. I tried to pull as much as possible (Ironman practice)and only rotated to the back 2 or 3 times for a brief recovery . I felt strong and was even more than pleased to see the avg. pace(18.2 mph) when it was all said and done. A quick change into my running shoes and I was off for a short run with a dear friend. She is kicking Cancers ASS and training for another tri. I was honored to run with her!!

Wednesday had several challenges in the afternoon so my best options was to pull my butt out of my cozy bed for a 5am run. When I opened the front door I was greeted by rain. It was not much of a factor and I just focused on the assigned workout plan. At mile 6 my legs began to talk a little trash but after the lightning and thunder hit I all but sprinted back to the house. Amazing how I still had that one in the tank..ha!

Closing in on week 16…… getting closer and closer to IMKY.

Nice! I so wanted to do the Cooper River Run this year but couldn't work out the weekend away. It is definitely on my "to do" list. Have a great time :)
