MIA = Missing In Action Butâ€¦BAN=Back again Now.
This month has been amazing!Â Such a lot to do, traveling, working, socializing, choresâ€¦it just went on and on. Now my life can resume some normalcy.Â I was able to run this past week while in Philadelphia, suffering on a treadmill with a non-working video screen and no music.Â Two days of speed workÂ and one easy, boring run, getting in a total of 18.25 miles on the mill.Â This week should be the first week since Boston where I've exceeded 25 miles. I'm expecting mid 30's range.
It wasn't so much running because I've started marathon training again, but just some exercise to maintain sanity while standing around all day at a manufacturing show.Â Along with "sanity maintenance", I did want to get a good mileage base in before beginning training next week.Â
A lot of good things happening this weekend. For one, it's Memorial Day weekend which means one extra day off, although catching up on 4 days of work missed won't make it seem like a long weekend. But after all is done, the fun begins.Â I'll go for a 12 â€“ 14 mile run Saturday, maybe half of that with my pup, Mr. Shane who I missed soooo much!Â I have a massage then some mundane things to do.Â At some point we will purchase our summer flowers, hanging plants and possibly a bush or two.Â Sunday is the first of Ted's scheduled triathlons.Â That will be so much fun!
Here's to good weather, fun with friends, successful eventing and a brilliant, wonderful weekend!
What are your plans?
