Blogger deleted my Thursday post last week and my weekend put me behind on everything, so I'm here for a quick update on all things IHR.
Why did the weekend put me behind? Because I was at the Red Rock Relay in Moab. Other news: I started marathon training for St. George yesterday with my first run in a week. How can that be if I was at the relay over the weekend, you ask? Well, I wasn't in Moab for me.
My hubs put together a team of (all but one) non-runners a few months ago to get them motivated and moving. They all trained as much as their schedules would allow, and I'm proud to say they completed their 70-mile relay faster than they expected in spite of several nagging injuries and a crazy course. Seriously, when I drove up to find them Saturday afternoon, I couldn't believe how hilly the course was. When I finally got to their team vehicle, I wasn't the least bit jealous of their adventure. Yet in spite of that, there's a good chance I'll be running it next year. Anyhow, congrats to Team Half Fast!
My favorite part of the weekend, besides watching those guys run their guts out, was that my hubs has a new appreciation for what I do. And he has a whole new understanding of what it takes to run 26.2 miles.
This was a pretty good part of the weekend too though:
As I mentioned, I started my still-in-the-works marathon training plan yesterday. I think I've managed to sucker one of my favorite bloggers into coaching me to an awesome finish. My lower leg is just whispering at me occasionally, so I figured there is no time like the present.
Finally, I've been nominated on Circle of Moms as a Top Health and Fitness Mom Blog.
