Weekends Here-Finally! Racing, random, and running!

Happy weekend everyone!! My goodness it was quite a long week, huh?

Running for the week (so far)
Tuesday
-12 easy miles.
Wednesday-7 miles-1 hour-lots of hills!
Friday-10 miles tempo-1:25 minutes

Sunday I have a half with my girlfriend. My one goal is to help her break 2 hours:) she has worked SO hard, I know she can do it!! It’s a very hilly and challenging course-of course, neither of us knew that until AFTER we booked it… We have been training on some of the toughest hills around…so she is READY!!:)

My plan is to turn my Sunday run into my long run by getting up and running 2-3 miles before we leave for the race. I really wanted to do an awesome 15 miler around my house on Friday but let’s be real-it’s not smart to do too many longish runs only 2 1/2 weeks before Boston.

I seem to have ADD to be in a random mood..these are my random confessions and obsessions for the week 🙂

1.) I felt reallllly cool yesterday…for about one minute. I actually taught one of my students (note:I teach mostly seniors) something about the IPhone. I can sometimes be technologically challenged, and usually find myself asking my students for IPhone help, so this was a biggun for me.
I read this article, and learned a lot about the phone I basically use just to text and check my Facebook/twitter. These are pretty much the only three things I knew how to do.. Also, I should probably confess..I didn’t use Siri until Friday night… She’s cool and all, but I think I’ll stick to my basics 😉 . This was my favorite new thing I learned:

It always drove me NUTS that I couldn’t see the times that my texts came in. Now you know how to see it too… You’re welcome.

2.) I have officially begun obsessively checking the weather for April 21st. I scoured the World Wide Web until I found a site that gave me the weather for the whole month of April… it’s looking good, folks.

3.) I am loving that spring is finally trying it’s hardest to appear..please see the small, yet pretty, flowers below(they are purple)…>

I also wore shorts on two of my runs this week …loving this weather..#40isthenew80

4.) Sent to me by my friend, Raquel…I plan to do a large post on this very soon, but for now:

I will be first to admit…when I pass a boy/man/man-boy… I am so much more energized because it’s a member of the opposite sex. Yeah, maybe it’s sexist and shallow, but I’m cool with it…Plus, then I get to chant “you got beat by a girl”..even if it’s only in my own head 😉

5.) I have official started wearing my marathon jacket.I know that people are superstitious, and think perhaps it is bad luck to wear it before finishing the race…but I am here to tell you: there is no way that I will have any bad luck. Why not? because when you survive a bomb blowing up ten feet from your head…I’m pretty sure that you have been officially blessed and meant for bigger/better/awesome-er things. And also…I don’t believe in bad luck…Because I make my own luck 😉

And This is where I leave you. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! Today I get to see my patient partner Everett and his family, YAY!!!!!

Tell me something random from your week!
