Weekend planning

I love weekends.

I love weekends the best when I have nothing planned and I can just relax. This weekend we have a slightly busy weekend.

Tonight my schedule is to get the family feed and then get in my 5 mile tempo run on the treadmill. I  hope I have some good recorded TV to watch to make it go quickly.

Saturday we will be up bright an early Evie's ballet class at 9:15AM, I am still trying to remember why I signed her up for such an early class on Saturday morning. After that we have to head in to the City to pick our our race packets for the St. Patricks Day Dash. Which I am sure will be followed to a trip to Dicks.

Sunday is the race, oh and Sunday is daylight savings. So not fair! I mean I am already going to have to be up at 7AM, to be in Seattle at 7:30 to drop the little on off with the in laws, to then drive downtown, park and get to the starting line by 8:30AM. The good news is after the race my schedule is clear to relax and enjoy the rest of the day with the family. 

My training schedule calls for an 8 mile run on Sunday, but with a 4 mile race planned, I am not sure I will get the other 4 miles in. Would it be bad to switch my Sunday run - 8 miles, with my 4 mile run planned for Wednesday of next week? I guess we will see what the weekend brings and if I can get the extra 4 in later the day I will. I know it won't be the same as running 8 miles straight. Please wish good weather upon us. It looks like the rain might hold off until 10AM, I am hoping to be back in my car by then. So please Seattle, don't rain on my run.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and did you see my new giveaway below - Hand Stamped Key Chain from Hand Stamped by Lorelei.


  1. Good luck Sunday! We're running a 15k. Not out for a PR this time. This one will be PACKED (about 35,000 people), and full of drunken fools (from all the green beer). Including me. lol

  2. Good luck tomorrow and have fun! I don't think it's a problem if you reschedule your 8 miler to Wednesday.

    We have two more weeks before daylight savings. It's always the last weekend of March here.
