two weeks to oz. big week.

Whew, it's been a week. Or two. Busy. And when busy seeps in, blahggie land gets neglected. All I have for now is a lame and quick update about Oz training. It's going well, I hit my peak week last week. This included running two races in two days--more on that later--and my hardest set of speedwork to date.

The good news is training has been going well since I've gotten over the sickies. And that's about all I have to offer. Training = good. Getting nervous butterflies in my belly for the race already. Enough said.

Week 11 Training:

Monday - Killer Spin (i had a weak showing, still wasn't feeling great)

Tuesday - 4 Miles Easy (finally back to normal, sicky wise)

Wednesday - Yoga Thursday - 9 miles of speedwork: 1 mile warm up, 5 x 1 mile repeats at 7:30 with 800 recovery, 1 mile cool down. This was supposed to be 10 miles total, but i have a job and had to get going. I'm just thrilled i didn't throw up or get injured. SUCCESS!

Friday - Rest

Saturday - 13.1 Miles Easy, Rock the Parkway Half Marathon in KC, running with the buddies!

Sunday - Brew to Brew, 4.8 miles on hills and in 35 mph winds. So that was fun. No idea what my pace was (i was that genius who forgot her garmin for her weekend of races), I was just trying not to get knocked over.

I guess if you had to forget your Garmin, that wasn't a bad weekend for it... A couple of easy training runs in conditions that you might like to forget.
