Half day Wednesday!

Yeah, I only have to work for 3 more hours and I can get out of here and hopefully forget about work for 4 long days!!!!! Highly doubtful b/c work is very stressful right now and it's been causing me to lose sleep and grind my jaws, joy. I love sleeping in a mouth guard!

Anywho. I got up this morning and went to spinning. Wednesday's teacher is the guy I wrote about before who likes to throw out all kinds of obscure quotes and references. Today we learned about why a cross country skiing marathon is 33K. It's b/c in 1260 the king was a baby of 8 months old and the village was being attacked, with the intention of killing the baby, so his guards got on skiis and skiied to a nieghboring town that was 33K away. Okay. So, we had to play along and pretend like we had 12 lbs of baby strapped on our back and climb up a mountain. Very challenging today, my legs were really giving out on me. I guess they are still worn out from Sunday.

I am already packed, so I just have to zip home, load the hubby and dogs into the car and go! I soooo hope it doesn't rain the whole way. While I am home I plan to run each day. My goal is 30 miles this week, I have 17.5 done. The CTC virtual triathlon starts Friday, I am excited for it. I think it will be very motivating. It's basically a 3 months contest where you accumulate points for every mile ran, lap swimmed and min/mile biked. Should be fun! I will try to come out of the gate strong by running 10 miles on Friday!

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!

Have an awesome trip home. I'm sure it will be great to get back and see the family again. Where will you run in Danville, around a track or something??

Your spin teacher sounds like a lot of fun. I think i would take that class just for the history lesson alone!

Happy Thanksgiving!
