What a week I have had. 2 toilets fixed, 1 front end tie rod replaced, 1 water heater replaced and a garbage disposal that went on the fritz. That gave me a busy week, but wait, there's more. Also we had a 1 year old get the stomach flu who then in turned passed it to my wife and oldest son. Good times!
Luckily I have not gotten it, I already had this bug so I hope I am immune to it. So it was one heck of a week here.
I am tired of the Olympics already.
I am looking to buy some new running shoes, but since we still new to get the 3 boys their passports this week, it may have to wait.
Forecast calls for it to be sunny and a high of 52 this weekend. Please let that be true.
I have been hitting a new strength workout lately. "The 21" It starts off with 20 push ups and 1 crunch, then 19 push ups and 2 crunches, 18 and 3, 17 and 4 etc... So far it is a tough workout, when all is said and done you end up doing something like 210 push ups and sit ups. This usually takes me about 15 minutes.
I am really feeling optimistic about my training this month. I had good totals on the bike and running (more of that in a later post, still have a swim and a run to get in before totals are final)
Earlier this week, I emailed the RD of the 1/2 Marathon I am doing in March to ask him if it was iPod legal. He replied back that is was iPod legal but was my responsibility to watch out for other runners. I like running with my iPod, but I have NEVER raced with it, so I am torn on whether or not I should use it. On one hand, I always think that people using their iPods are racing just for the heck of it. (I know, totally an elitist point of view form me). I also think that it would really helped me on the miles. Not sure what I will do. What would you guys do?
