5 miles. I felt a lot better than the day before.

Splits: 8:55, 8:25, 8:11, 8:22, 7:55

I'll let you guess which mile had me discovering "my" port o john was gone!

6 neighborhood miles. I was a little speedy because I was angered by the Big Brother episode that aired the night before (OMG I HATE VANESSA!!!!)

Now that my port o' john is gone, I really have to stick close to my house.

What kind of workouts did you have this week? Let us know how your training is going!


  1. Awesome week in workouts! Bummer your potty is gone, now. I had a good week too. 4 run days w/ rowing/weights, 2 bike days & 1 complete rest day (missed my swim this week so back to the pool next week). I am really gonna miss summer because when winter comes the weather dictates my workout schedule.

    1. Me too! Super duper cold days I will lift and "warm" days (like 15 and above haha) I will run. As long as there is nothing slippy on the roads. Now I no you don't do the treadmill so if the weather is bad I guess you end up doing more swimming or biking? I loathe the treadmill so much, so even though it's an option for me, I am more likely to just lift, even a couple days in a row, if there is snow on the ground.

    2. When the snow comes, I use my yak trax on my shoes so I can still run it's just very slow. I don't love to bike inside so I will probably swim 2 x per week and hope to get out for runs on the other days. If we get a time when the snow melts and the roads are clear I will bike but anything below 32 on the bike is too cold for me!!

    3. I do also have the indoor track at the rec center!

    4. That's cool! I never ran on an indoor track.

    5. it is really small (14 laps = 1 mile) .... so definitely a mental game but for me the only other option since I can't do the tready.

  2. Sounds like a solid workout all week, way to go. I've been incorporating a lot more strength training lately. It really helps!! Have a great weekend!

    1. Awesome, I am glad you are benefiting from it!

  3. I hear ya on the portapotty. There is actually one that stays out all winter on the bike path by me...it's a beacon, calling me home on those winter long runs...

    1. They can really save the day. I don't understand why this one is gone. It has been there for soooooo long. All winter too. So sad.
