On my training schedule for my half I have made Wed/Thur cross training days.

Wednesday was yoga, bike ride, yoga.
Thursday was yoga, heavy legs day at the gym, short bout on the arc trainer.

I like cross training days. I like feeling challenged and pushed, remaining active and occasionally forcing myself into new areas of fitness. [considering taking a spin class; eek!]

What I like most about cross training is that I come back to my running strong. I don't feel like a boob that just sat around for X days nor do I have my running muscles screaming at me for over use. It's a great feeling.

Tomorrow is the long awaited bachelorette party for the bride to be. (Note: I am the Maid of Honor in said wedding and thus the organizer of said event.) Alas, I will still be getting up early (oh, in my world early means prior to 10am) to do my 3.5m run prior to the festivities.

And, the festivities will include: an afternoon wine tour, a nice classy dinner at the lake restaurant, and some drinks at another bar on the lake. The best part?

Goose is the driver. I'm psyched; he's really great to have around at events like this, the perfect fit.

Luckily for me Saturday is my day off so I don't have to worry about a curfew...

Feeling strong, feeling motivated, trying to keep things in perspective, watch triggers, learn along the way....

Just keep on keepin' on.


  1. Good job working cross training into your plan, and even better job sticking with it. It can get hard to not get sucked into being too running-centric.

    I wish my early meant before 10AM. Much jealousy.

    Enjoy your night out.

  2. I appreciate your vote of confidence. It's still early enough to be gung-ho! :) I hope my motivation remains high. Thanks for your kind words.
