Three Things Thursday

1. Recovery week! Oh, how I {heart} thee! I am trying very hard to take it easy. I would like to maintain my fitness level, but also recover, and I have put some significant stress on my body these past 8 weeks or so. I am also in a bit of a conundrum over the next three weeks. I think I should move into some race specific training, but that doesn't jive with the spirit of this training cycle. I will find the balance that makes me happy!

2. Due to time constraints, I ended up on the treadmill last night at 9:15 PM. Don't ask. At least I let the two bowls of Jambalaya I ate settle. I was holding a 6.5 mph pace in low zone 2!! I was like: WTH? Where is this coming from? It was a nice show of progress with my training.

3. The kiddos are going to Panama City for spring break. That leaves just me, Teh Bug, and the puppies at home all week. Guess what I'll be doing? Not that you perverts.... If anyone wants to come by, I'll have paint brushes and beer enough for everybody!

Have a great slide into the weekend :-)

You're making progress for sure! I need to get better about watching my training/recovery, probably why I am feeling so rundown and exhausted today.

That's some awesome progress your making! Way to stay in Zone two and still be speedy!

Nice job on the mill. (I hate them, but they do come in handy sometimes.)

If I lived closer I would definitely stop by for a cold one.
