Not a morning person this week

Today was the second day in a row that I decided to skip core class and sleep in. I'm motivated to go but just tired @ 5:00 in the morning. I'm going to try and get to Pain's spin workout in the a.m. Just the thought of missing her workout when she knows I said I would be there scares me. I'll make it!
Today was a solid run for me. No land speed records were set but I am not about speed right now. It's about building strength and power in my legs so that the hills of Bandera won't kill me. So that is why I run hills all the damn time now. I hope this pays off. So after work I drove over to the PTC and started there. I ran down to the trail via Dawson/5th St and headed West on the South side of the river. Once @ the 1 mi marker I cut under the bridge and ran to Barton Hills Loop and onto Wilke. It was a nice 4.5 mi warm up with hills involved. Once to Wilke I did my 5 repeats that I didn't finish yesterday. The one BIG thing I did differently today is that I only rested once in between repeats. I just kept rolling into the next one. I really enjoyed that and I'll make that part of the next Wilke workout for the team. When I finished I ran back to the PTC and that got me about 7.5 miles. I was pleased with this workout and will do it again next month or so.

Things in general:
-I have seen Fish more in the past 4 weeks than I have in the past 4 years. Everywhere!!!!! It's always a pleasure but it's really weird.
- I can't stand people who try and one up another person. If you are one of these people.....get a f'ing life.
- My little sister has taken up aqua jogging @ the Y. April..... you are a better person than I because I could never do that. I would loose my mind! Keep it up..... it will only make you stronger and healthier.

Oh................... Beer Mile will be the Saturday after T-Day @ Circle C Metropolitan Park. 4:00 p.m. Bring your own beverage and I'll supply the course. No GLASS!

Wuhoo! I wore my beer mile shirt the other day and was wondering if it was coming back! Let me know if you need any help - my genetic disposition doesn't allow me to participate.
