Random Bits

1. I seem to be finding not a whole heck of a lot to blog about these days. I continue to train for my next half marathon.  I went back to the middle of the cycle to end at the beginning of May when I once again attempt to go to the ocean and do a half.  It will not be canceled and it will be just lovely.  My training goes well.  I think I am deciding that the tempo run is the hardest for me. I am doing well at the pace run, the speed intervals and okay at the long run. I am doing the tempo but it tires me out!

2. This weekend I have a race coming up. It may be more of a fun run but I am gone for two weekends in April and this was about all that I could find that was close. I am temporarily not traveling for races.  Been there, done that, no race.  So I'm sticking close to home. I am hoping to talk my son into it but have a feeling that won't happen.  My April trip is ALL ABOUT BIKING with a few runs thrown in to keep me in shape for my half.

3. And speaking of biking........today is gorgeous. There is still a lot of water in the road from all the melting snow. I was hoping to get out biking Saturday but the forecast doesn't look great.  But I will do it if I can. I am itching to get on the bike.

 4.. Speaking of my son how did he get to be 27?  He is my baby, my youngest, my last born.  How in the world is he 27?  Oh my!

5. We went out to eat on his birthday and I managed to get a new stamp on my brewery card, something I don't think I've done since last fall!

Time to get outside to get some good pics!

27. Time flies. I've been eyeing my bike as well. I'm sure I missed an opportunity to get out on it because I'm so focused on running right now. Soon though.

Yea for biking!! And birthdays! Hope your weather cooperates.

I've had lots to blog about but no time to blog. Sigh.

Oh, and tempo runs are my very least favorite.

Well, despite the dry spell for blogging you're still out there and very active which is more important. And wow - 27! My oldest is 19 - and that seems very grown up to me at the moment!

Tempo runs helped me to improve the speed, now they are "mission impossible".
27, what a wonderful age! My younger is 29 and the "old" is 34.

I don't seem to have motivation to blog, I'm just so tired. I'm glad you visited yesterday. What race are you doing this weekend? Jameson's cake looks amazing!! I love cheesecake.

Hope the snow melts so you can bike. It is almost gone here.

Hope the snow melts quickly and stays away. I'm taking a break from traveling for races too (unless they overlap with travel I'm already doing). It can be a lot of hassel!

I love tempo runs more than running repeats! 27 is a great age!

Char said...

I didn't realise that Jameson was the same age as Sam. How on earth did those little boys get to be so grown up?!!

I wouldn't worry about not having anything to blog about. Your core readers will always be here for you when the inspiration presents itself. I actually appreciate bloggers such as yourself who don't blog about nothing at all to ensure their social presence is up to date.
