Hello! I hope your all having a good day and that you have made it successfully through the week. I am very ready for the weekend. With warm weather approaching, I have been busier than normal! Ever notice how everyone is so much happier when the weather is good? It definitely brightens my mood when we have warm weather and beautiful sunny days! So much to look forward to!
Adam is running the Seneca Seven race this weekend which is a team relay type race that is 77.7 miles long. He has 4 different legs of the race which equal to about 12 miles altogether. I will be relaxing with Porter somewhere around the lake and am equally looking forward to it!
Last weekend Adam and I did another long training run. We ran 22 miles and I found it very successful! I carried a bottle of water with me this time and the weather was a lot cooler than our 20 mile run. It was overcast and a little windy. After it was over, I felt tired, but great! No issues getting sick this time! This is why it is so important to train, so that you can try different things to make race day go as smoothly as possible.
We ran at Onondaga Lake park. The views you can find there are just terrific! It helps so much to have a run with great views because it makes the time go faster. It took us about 3.5 hours to complete the run. This weekend we have a 12 mile run planned, and then the following weekend we will run 24 miles, which will be our longest run of training. I will continue to carry water during the long runs to stop dehydration. During the race it wont be so important to carry water because there are water stations every 2 miles along the route.
Besides our training runs, we have recently re-sided our house, bought a sail boat and have been working on making an entry way table. Ever since we bought our house we knew we have wanted to re-side it. I have to say, I’m very happy with how it looks!
Since I met Adam in high school, he has always wanted to own a sailboat. So on Monday he made that dream come true! We are starting off with a small sailboat to get use to sailing and see how we like it and how much time we have to devote to it. I can’t wait to get it out on the water!
We have been staining, sanding, and applying poly to the pieces that will soon be our entryway table. Now all that is left is the assembly! I can’t wait to get it together!
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
