After feeling somewhat sick, this week was full of new energy!
Monday February 29th
My boy (aka Love Nugget) lost his second tooth! And the tooth fairy left a glittery mess in his room! Also, I read that some Tooth Fairies are much more generous, some give up to $10! This house only gets $1 per tooth.
Tuesday March 1st- Hill Training
.25 mile hill repeat x 6, total : 2 mile ( Hill training is rough, but it helps me so much with speed)
1 hour zumba with Dana :~( - Very slow zumba class, was barely out of breath. I'm sad that this was such a slow class.
Wednesday March 2nd
1 hour of Zumba with Denise
30 minutes Weights with Roger - my abs and arms were sore for 3 days after this one.
Thursday March 3rd - Rest
Friday March 4th- Long Run
18 mile long run- Roger and I had planned for this to be a 19 mile run, but we cut it back 1 mile, because I had been sick the week before. It was a cold and breezy day, so I was glad for 10 less minutes of cold weather, even though I ended up outside waiting for Roger to finish his 17 miles.

|The trail where we ran goes past Hershey Medical Center, so we often see the Life Lion getting ready to go somewhere. This day, they were running flying test.|

Saturday, March 5th
Rest day- spent with my son and my family. I was very hungry the entire day ! And I'm not 100% proud of all my meal choices. We went to this lovely Vietnamese restaurant, and I ate my food, plus anybody's left overs. #noshame

Sunday March 6th- Progression run
9 Mile semi progression run. I had to do this one alone, Roger had a stomach bug on Friday after our long run, and was still recuperating Sunday. I ran the first 4 miles as progressions, took a short bathroom break and did the other 5 mile progressions. I was very surprised with myself, and how strong I was feeling for the last mile.
|Time for new sneakers! Breaking in the Nike Free|

Total Miles - 29 Miles
Zumba - 1.5 (Dana's class only counts for .5, bc I didn't sweat)
Weights - 30 minutes
This week Goals:
* I have to really work hard on increasing my weight training sessions to 3 per week, no more
* Short and easy runs this week, nothing longer than 6 miles until Saturday.
Next Race- Washington DC Rock and Roll Half Marathon: We finally signed up for the race, at the last possible minute I might add, and making a mental note to myself, don't sign up for a big race before going to bed, or I'll spend the night dreaming of the race.
