Tryptophan Hangover Friday

I got my weights and abs in today to prep for my long tomorrow...well not that long.  My plan calls for a 7 miler - I may do my 8 mile loop.  My main goal in this training is to learn to pace, so it has me doing two days very slowly for time - distance irrelevant, but at a specifically slow time, then I do speed drills on one day (1/4 mile repeats, then tempo runs later), then a long at a certain pace that is less than marathon goal pace until a couple weeks before the race then some medium longs at race pace.  It sounded like a plan to me and I'm on it!

Leftovers galore, so no cooking for a couple days.  Just sent my Sweetie off to the salt mines with some turkey sandwiches in his kit!  Yum.  Now my daughter and I are off to do some birthday surprises and Christmas decorating.

    I was going to do 8 today, but I guess it'll be tomorrow, just didn't feel like it today.  We went and cut down 2 Christmas trees this morning, in the rain,yak, brought them home and we'll start decorating tomorrow.  This is the first time we ever cut trees in the rain, we've had lots of snow, bitter cold, sunny and cold, but never rain.  Lots of leftovers here as well, it's a wonderful thing.  Going to visit some friends later this afternoon, fun.

    I ran 4 easy miles today.  Probably nothing tomorrow, then 8 on Sunday.

    No runs for me for the weekend.  I ended up going home to MN for Thanksgiving and surprising my parents (with the help of my sister!) Man was it hard to keep that secret for two weeks as I talk to my mom every day! Went shopping (not early, went after the crowds cleared out) and walked around for 4 hours and then took the dogs on a nice walk.  Just a bunch of walking for me for the weekend and enjoying my family time


    It was the first time in about 5 years that my entire immediate family was in the same place for Thanksgiving (and that my mom has had to cook!) so it was a very very good day yesterday.  Along with my dad's reaction of "Oh Sh!t! What are you doing here?" when I walked in the door and my mom's of "But I just talked to you on the phone and you said you were going to Isaac's parents! You and your sister are liers!!" It was the best!

    Did a 6 mile tempo run this morning.  Started off with a couple of easy warm up miles followed by 3 at my short tempo pace and finishing with a final cool down mile.Finished up in good shape.  Scheduled for 10 miles on Sunday then a couple real short ones next week before leaving for Vegas Friday afternoon.

    Deer, a horned owl, and one last frog highlighted a woodland stomp.  One extra large buzzard kept close for a while but finally decided I wasn't going to be supper yet.

    I did 3.5 miles today on the treadmill.  Ugh.  However, I re-discovered the gym at our clubhouse.  It's not too bad.  Good circuit stuff and nice dumb bells. 

    I still need to get some weather running gear.  I've got nothing - and really, I'm a cold weather wimp.
