Salty’s Training Log – 5.13.12

I’m feeling quite a bit better in this, my 11th week. I haven’t puked in over a week now and am slowly reincorporated foods like fruits and vegetables back into my diet. I still don’t feel spectacular or anything, but I can get by with a 45 minute nap and stay up until 10 and can handle our regular schedule for the most part.

That's the 11.5 week bump (and my driveway) from my vantage point

We’ve had a crazy weekend. The brakes went on my car with no warning, so my husband was a hero and fixed them yesterday in between planting corn, installing a fence and everything else he did! If he didn’t fix them I would have been stuck at home with the kids until Tuesday. That would have not been fun! Then today he kept the kids occupied in the morning and I slept in until after 8. I spent the morning with my mom and the kids. My mom made us brunch and now we’re getting ready to go to dinner at my in-laws. I love these crazy whirlwind family weekends, but I’m looking forward to a peaceful week on the home-front.

I think it's impossible to get a good photo of a 3 yo and an almost 2 yo and me. Someday they'll sit still. Right?

This coming Friday is my birthday and we have our first ultrasound scheduled. I’m a little nervous and very excited to see this little one for the first time! Anyway, despite the busy-ness I managed to get some decent mileage in this week: 36! Can I break 40 this coming week? Hope so!

Mon: 4 easy on the treadmill. 9:00 pace because the a\c was broken and girl couldn’t stand the heat!

Tue: No sitter and raced on Sunday so took the kids on a date to the track and dinner while daddy got some work done at home.

Wed: 6.25 with the stroller at the park.

Thu: 6 on the Y treadmill with a “workout:” 1 mile @ 6:55; .5 @ 7:00 and then 2 x 2:00 @ 7:00. I felt great for the first half of the mile, but then struggled. So I kept the rest of the “workout” a little easier and shorter.

Fri: 6 with the stroller and my friend B and her daughter.

The kids having their post-run Friday fun!

Sat: 8.5 on trails with my old training buddy M who I doubt I’ll be able to run which much for awhile.

Sun: 5.25 from home and to the park around and back.

Total: 36!

Salty Running boss and mother of 3 little ones with PRs of 3:10:15 (26.2), 1:25:59 (13.1) and 18:15 (5k). I love to write about running culture, mental training, and fitting in a serious running habit with the rest of a busy life.
