Last week was a bit different because of the holiday, but most of the training got done.
Wednesday - Zumba with Denise, and 4 miles (mix of speed work and rest).
Saturday - 3 easy miles
Sunday - 10 miles long run
Ran- 17 miles
Zumba - 1
I'm linking up with Holly and Tricia for their Weekly Wrap post
On Wednesday, I went to zumba with Denise. I think she was mad at me... just so we are clear... I make up things in my head on reasons why people are mad at me... So my reasoning was that she was mad at me because I have not been to her Hip Hop class in a while. But really, she is a busy woman who is about to close her studio, the last thought in her mind is whether or not I have been to her Hip hop class.
After that I met Roger to do some speed work in some very thick and humid weather. We were to do 16- .25 Mile reps, but it was so hot, that I gave up at 11.

Fun Story- On Friday for our 6 weeks of trips, we took a trip to our backyard... ok, so we don't have a backyard, but I call the Hampden township my backyard. We went to the pool! It has been a very hot week, and my son has been begging to go to the pool since ... I don't know... February. So we headed there, with all stuff ready to enjoy a few hours there. My son and Roger jumped in the pool, and 20 minutes later, it started pouring! and the rain didn't stop until 7 that night. There go $26 !
Saturday my siblings and I headed out for some canoeing along the Brandywine River. This is starting to become a yearly tradition with them, and we all really enjoy it! Again, because of the weather, we had to cut the trip short.

|The check out cat. This adorable thing was hanging by the check out cashier. He was not at all disturbed by the humans working around him.|
I also run in my hometown, Oxford Pa. My Dad told me to have a good run, which is amazing, because my Dad has NEVER had the chance to say that to me. He doesn't go to my races.
I had to do my Sunday long run alone, because while I was at my parents, Roger injured himself. He hurt his back and hamstring, and now we is not sure he will be running our fall goal race, the Hershey Half Marathon.
Calves.... how much longer can I complain about my calves? I wore one compression sleeve to test if they would help with the pain during the long run. And it did. So I'm debating on wearing them both for long runs.

Loving this week :
My son is always saying awesome things, this one is my recent favorite:
"Mom, you are the only person I know who has one a Marathon. My Dad has never done a Marathon." *
*Not that I'm competing with my ex-husband, but it feels good to be winning with my son on at least ONE thing!
I know you love when I post random Spanish songs... this is my current favorite, giving me good vibes all over! Men with shinny suits synchronized dancing are obviously my thing! Just a tad of history, the man singing is a very popular Rock En Español singer Leonardo De Lozanne, and the band is one of the most popular Cumbia bands Los Angeles Azules. the only thing that doesn't make sense to me is the orchestra, it sounds forced.
Not Loving this week :
Can we please make the Justin Timberlake song stop already! I have hear the new song a grand total of 3 times and it has been 3 too many! I hate that song!
How was your week of training?
Caught in any rain this week?
Hating any songs?
I'm sorry if you love the JT Song.
