One day at a time.
I decided to get the wheel rolling on training again, working towards a goal or two in the fall. The exact race(s)/goal(s) are not yet in cement but I'm running & working with Lloyd - yay! And mixing it up a lot: running with various peeps like EG, ES, LK and SS, joining groups at times and hitting the trails. It's all a tremendously good time. With the warm weather and humidity you really need more options and ways to deal with the conditions. These peeps and new routes are a huge aid! And of course, I'm still lucky to get a few miles in here and there with Missy!! Not long now and her baby girl will join the world and start rocking out her new BOB stroller - cannot wait to meet this future Boston Qualifier with over 1000 miles under her belt come her birth day.
Finally got my carcass back to the yoga studio too and don't plan to stray in the near future. My body reminded me that yoga is part of the deal. No building miles and miles without adequate time at Kula. Summer time at the studio is especially fun and challenging and very slippery as temps in the rooms there can get to quite the stifling point. All in all it makes for a great 90 mins per session even if I do look like I'm coming out of a pool. I can practically hear my body sigh in relief after some time spent there or maybe that's just my pores gurgling with sweat - either way, it is so worth it.
And seeing as it's now over halfway through 2010, the folks at KR and I started checking in on our goals for the year to see where we all stood. As posted at the end of 2009:
- #1 goal is to run a strong marathon
- Run at least 2000 miles
- Stay healthy
- Expand my yoga practice
- Run a HM PR
Outside of running and yoga we've had a number of visitors in the last several weeks and have traveled to a big family reunion for my dad's side of the family. Good times continue into the summer - coming up next, yummy eats during restaurant week and catching Thierry Henry's debut with the NY Red Bulls vs. Tottenham.
Stay cool peeps!
Oh and yes my firebolt aka the mini stub of a ponytail shooting straight out of the back of my head - she's a keeper!
