I warned you it is pink!Second, your guesses on the Chocolate Island Boost contest are awesome. I'm flattered by your speedy guesses, and you all are motivating me to work even harder on race day! Thank you! Thank you! And if you haven't entered yet, you have until midnight on Friday, so get to it. What are you waiting for?!
It was a weird week here in Atlanta, leading to limited postings by me. First we had snow, ice, freezing rain and power outages that shutdown the city for 3 days straight. Then just as things were returning to 'normal', there was an earthquake east of the city. And to top it all off, it is going to be almost 70 on Sunday. It's a weird, weird world.
The icy hill on which we live. Luckily it melted quickly this time because there are very few plows.The wackiness that was Atlanta this week led to a slightly accelerated taper. I was unable to get to the gym as the streets were closed and the sidewalks were so icy, it was too dangerous to attempt running outdoors. I did the best I could and got in a few quality workouts this week. Needless to say, I should be well rested come race day.
Me, after being stuck in the house for 2 days.Though I tried to avoid it, I sustained an ice injured during the ice storm when an ice pack fell out of our freezer and took a 5 foot fall directly onto two of my toes. I may have whelped and made a bit of a production leading the Jayhawk to declare that they were indeed still attached to my foot. Ironically, I used the offending ice pack to ice my toes. I did have some swelling and blue nails from the event, so I did take off the rest of the ice storm (not like I could workout anyway).
Valentine's brunch, even if we are two days late! :)By Friday, I was back to running and my toes appear to be holding up nicely. Always fun to have a near injury during taper time to prove just how crazy you are.
How was your week? Any good taper madness stories?
