Thanks to the beauty of the TimeHop App, I was reminded that today was my girl's first 5k! It was very cold, very snowy, and very icy. She complained the entire 3 miles until she saw the finish and turned on the sprinter legs. Freaking SMOKED me.
I also decided today that a little redemption was in order after running the Jax Bank Half last year in the pouring rain.
I'm gonna run it again this year :) Hopefully in much better weather. Nothing like planning a half marathon with 10 days notice to motivate you to run!
With numbers like this, you would think the scale would be moving in the right direction, but sadly, no. Le sigh.
Yes, I know there are other ways to measure progress - like being able to run a 10 mile long run and feel ok afterwards, even if it took 8 miles to find my groove. Or getting in all your strength workouts and feeling like you've kicked your own ass.
I like the strength training I'm doing and the spinervals make the bike work go faster, but overall I just feel like I'm literally spinning my wheels and getting nowhere.
Biking: 39.26 miles
Strength: 4 workouts
I run. I eat. Sometimes I'm a triathlete. I parent 16 year old twins. (That last part also means I drink a lot of really great beer.)
