So, in a nutshell, this week was pretty active. I probably should have treated it more as a recovery week (following Sunday's 15K), but I honestly felt great (until the DOMS on Saturday morning). Running knocked out 22 miles, walking logged 16, and biking had 31. Strength training saw both upper & lower-body work this week, the latter mixed in with stair-training.
In other news:
Friday Fashion Flair! Cold temps had me reaching for my favorite wool sweater. I had to layer some black and gold underneath...you know, because there was a big game on deck for Saturday against Minnesota. Do you sport your team's colors the day before (or the week of) a big game?
Say it isn't so...I awoke to this white stuff on the ground Friday morning. Ugh. I know, I know...it is that time of year. Last year, we'd already had two big snowfalls by this time (in October), so this was to be expected sooner or later. Still, it's a buzzkill when it actually happens...
Saturday (late) afternoon found me at another Iowa football game, this time with the oldest daughter (who actually is an Iowa State grad!). Gotta love a little mother/daughter fun, even on a cold day (for several hours) in a football stadium. The Hawkeyes defeated the Minnesota Golden Gophers, bringing their season to 8-2. Yes, it was a great day, on so many levels!
So that's another action-packed week all wrapped up. How did your week play out? Any of the "white stuff" in the air or on the ground? Any races? Any fitness endeavors with friends?
