Three Things Thursday


1. I am really looking forward to my race this weekend. It has been more than a month since I raced (New Year's Day). I am hoping it won't be too cold or icy. A girlfriend is going with me to keep me company and hit a couple of outlets after. Plus Target which we DO NOT HAVE in Vermont!
The picture is from this race a couple of years ago. Last year when I ran this I had a PR for a four miler.

2. I had 3 very different workouts this week. Two were on the treadmill. During the first one I had a cold and felt lousy lousy lousy! I ran my regular distance but slower and with breaks. I probably could have skipped it but I tend to keep going. I use the rule, above the head you can still work out, below the neck skip your workout. Believe me I have looked on the web many times for advice on working out when you are sick. I don't know if I am looking for permission to continue or to skip it. The second workout on the treadmill - two days later after staying home from work and spending the day in bed- was an excellent workout - great pace and good distance. Then today I had a late meeting I wasn't thrilled to go to. Between school and the meeting I headed outside with my Garmin and wound around the streets until I had run 4 miles. It was brisk but it felt great to be outside destressing before having to sit still and listen to people talk for an hour. I was glad I had squeezed this run in.

3. I forgot to tag anyone when I did my bucket list. So if you haven't done it and wish to please do! Have fun with it.

Mystery reader (as this class does it) is basically where parents sign up to appear, unbeknownst to the kids, to read the class a story. Nothing too terribly mysterious! : )
