Sorry I've been missing the past two days! Here's a quick recap:
Wednesday night: 5 mile indoor track run - 6 inches of snow in Southern Indiana.
Thursday: Loooong work day, 1.5 mile run, 11 minutes of elliptical with slightly achy shin, followed by aqua zumba l
I get my car back today - three weeks after it went to the repair shop! Thank goodness. I have missed automatic windshield wipers and heated seats a little too much.
I get most of the three-day weekend off, minus coming in for while Monday to do some work. I have a long run Saturday: 2 hours. My first "major" run of Princess training; for some reason, anything under that time seems much less serious. I'm debating the settting of this run: outside on still-snowy sidewalks, or at the Y on a combo of treadmill and track. The biggest plus of being inside: I can start running earlier, and be done earlier (maybe in time for a quick hot tub soak afterwards!). The rest of my time off will be spend cleaning: my house is almost out of control dirty. I have only had 6 days off since Thanksgiving, and it shows. I also plan on cleaning out my closet, since I have tons of clothes that I simply don't wear any more. I pixie'd my hair in November, and it changes what clothes you look good in. I *LOVE* short hair (have had it most of my life) but it rules out certain pieces of clothing, like turtlenecks (no-neck syndrome) and plaid shirts (k.d. lang syndrome).
I am starting to get pre-Princess planning fear, and would like to get some idea of what I'll need to buy to take with me for the race. A question: anyone use a spi-belt or similar product? Recommendations?
What are your weekend plans?
