Runner of the week! Yeah!

Cross training on the schedule today.  I ended up biking about 19 miles at Stony Creek.  I drove home and was feeling pretty good so I decided to run the four miles that I missed yesterday.

Wow - a brick workout is tough.  I guess that's why they call it a brick, huh?

My legs felt like lead for the first mile but I did fine.  Finished four in this heat.  Yes, we are getting back to the 90's again today.  Just to be clear, I'm not training for a triathlon since I can't find one to fit in my schedule but I really am enjoying the bike again.  It's also nice to train on the bike without having a schedule.  I should try that for running sometime too.


I saw the Stony Creek King - Ken from Eastside Stony Creek TNT running this morning at Stony Creek.  It was already hot by about 8:30am when I saw him.  I was glad to be on the bike.  Little did I know I was going to run too.  Haha!


Warrior Dash tomorrow.  I decided I'm not racing.  I will actually be walking much of the course with my friend, P.  She hurt her ankle last week so she has to be careful.  She wants to complete her first half marathon in Detroit this year so I understand her not wanting to miss that.  I'm totally fine with walking because I know that I'll have so much more fun with her by my side versus going off on my own.  Do you enjoy running races alone or with people?  92 degrees for a high tomorrow - it should be an interesting time.


Welcome new followers!  For those of you interested in hearing a little more about my history over the past two years or to help you fall asleep, I was nominated as the runner of the week on Runner Dude's Blog.  Actually I'm not sure if I was really nominated.  I just submitted my story to him and he posted it about me.  If you have not checked out his blog before, he has some great information to share.  Click HERE for my story!  Thanks for sharing it Runner Dude!

Have a great day and....Keep Running
