Week in Review: the week I tried to enter a bunch of races…

Week in Review:  the week I tried to enter a bunch of races…

April 9th-15th

I was tired on Monday so I opted just for yoga and no bike (maybe next week?).  The extra sleep was much-needed.

Monday was also the day our htc applications were due for the NUUN blogging team.  About a week earlier I’d decided I wanted to enter, but the weekend got away from me and I figured I was too late.

Some how inspiration struck and I managed to finish the post.  You can check it out here:

At the finish last year. Love this race! Hope I get picked!

I managed and easy 6 on Tuesday and was set for my return to the track… yeah I know.  I also entered this little race… but am waiting to find out if I got in.  Geez lots of waiting!

I hope I get in… I want another one of these…

Wednesday’s workout was 2 x 15 minutes of fartlek with a 4 minute recovery.  We then got to jog for 15 minutes and run 6 x a hill (about 300m).  Welcome back.  I could barely run home.  If you want all the details here they are:

Thursday I ran the slowest 5 miles of my life and I’m not exaggerating.

I was feeling better by Friday and managed and easy 8 followed by and easy 6 on Saturday.

Saturday was a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest!

And then yes… another race day on Sunday!

Arrrrgh… an 8k!  And I finished 2nd!  It was a challenging race but I’m glad I ran it.  You can checkout my recap here:

So now I wait. Fingers crossed!
