So week two following the marathon was one more week of doing whatever I felt like doing. This will not be the case this week as I plan to start adding back in some base and really focusing on getting in the pool.
Last week was a bit of a struggle as I was having trouble waking up in the morning early in the week and then later in the week, the pool was closed so I did not hit the targetted pool workouts. Not only that, the evenings were busy with working late and other committments, so the biking went by the wayside.
The plan for this week is to start back with the morning workouts which should be aided by the time change! Day 1 of resuming morning workouts is already in the books!
Saturday morning was the ladies Halloween Pancake Run. Despite the rainy forecast it ended up being a perfect morning for running! There was 8 of us that showed up to hit the trails of North Chagrin! As we neared the water crossing, a guy warned us that we would not be able to get across. E scoffed at that notion and when we stared at the rushing water, 4 of us looked at each other with devilish grins and proceeded to cross the water which was just below our knees, laughing the whole time. Then we went back across to head back up the hill with the rest of the gals! Oh, it was such good fun! After the run we headed over to Yours Truly to reward ourselves with some good food and lots o coffee!
The rest of the weekend was filled with a pumpkin carving party and my Halloween bash. Needless to say, I was wiped out by Sunday and enjoyed a very relaxing day on the couch!
