Week 5 was the start of more real training but still an easy week. I have been cleared for 1 long run and keeping the others short. This week the crazy heat and humidity was here but now back to “normal” summer. I swam again this week! I am actually considering a tri for 2014 but not just any, since the many years of being in California for the Napa half which is the same weekend (used to be) as Vineman I have been wanting to do this, so I have until Nov to decide since it sells quick. Do I jump right in a do a 70.3? Go big or go home, right?!
Monday: Swim 20 min (100m more than last time)
Tuesday: Morning strength with trainer. Evening 5.25 mile easy run coaching
Wednesday: Busy morning with fun kids/moms event: yoga, healthy food, crafts etc Evening 5K race
Thursday: Morning 2 mile walk and Strength and evening 5 mile run with MRTT
Friday: Spin class and 2 mile walk
Saturday: 14 mile run in my old neighborhood on the routes I ran 7 years ago with a speedy running friend and an unexpected kid free afternoon meant ~15 mile bike with Matt

|O showing off her yoga skills on Wednesday!|
Week 6 means 10 weeks to go and I am rethinking my goal, even had a crazy idea of using Lakefront and a training run for a different marathon in late October. We will see how things go, hoping for a better week, better weather is here and more morning workouts and another swim.
Monday: 4.5 mile run 37:01 (including 2 min cool down walk) back to morning workouts! J Had to try out my new shoes on the TM. Core/pilates
Tuesday: ?Spin and strength with trainer. Yet another appointment with sports doc this morning. Evening easy run coaching
Wednesday: Walk with friends to start the day. Swim and core later.
Thursday: Strength and evening 5K race (much better weather!)
Friday: Spin class and run to/from gym
Saturday: 18-20 mile long run
Sunday: Recovery run/walk and strength
After Saturday's run I hit up the new running store and thanks to my friend and the Adidas rep I was convicned to deviate from my loyalty to Kayano and give these bright beauties a try. The reason the for the TM run today, after working out a few kinks with lacing I think I like them. Can you image me racing in these with the lime green/pink ProCompressions?
