Head on over to Two Red Birthstones and check out my guest post. As you'll see in the post Danielle and I went to high school together and I am really excited to follow her 5K journey!
Make sure you go check it out!
Mike and I are currently on week 11 of marathon training and week 3 of 70.3 training. So far it has gone pretty well, we've had to cut out a few workouts here and there but nothing major.
While the Easter Bunny visits everyone this weekend we are going to be pounding the pavement and getting friendly with our saddles. We have our first 20 plus training run this weekend. I say "plus" because if this weekend goes well, our next 20 miler will be changed to 21 or 22 miles.
We are using the same 20 mile route that we used during our training for Wineglass and we are planning on meeting up with some of our friends along the way. Including these two lovely people!
We haven't seen Sarah and Mark in a little while and we are having withdrawals. It was time to change that so I asked Sarah if they would like to join us for part of our run and they said yes! I can't wait to see them while running along the canal path. Sarah and Mark are training for the mini-mussel which is the sprint triathlon of the Musselman races (where we are doing our 70.3). We're definitely going to cheer them on!
This weekend we also have a 35 mile ride on Sunday. I'm hoping we can get outside since it will be nice, but we have to go practice clipping in and out first while not on the trainer.
Speaking of Sarah and Mark, they are two of our teammates for Seneca7 which happens to be our next race! April is going to break our trend for the year of one race per month (who are we??), where we'll be racing not once, not twice but three times! I guess technically it is only two weekends, but it is three separate races.
We'll be doing Seneca7 again with almost the same team. My mom, Mike, Sarah, Mark and I are all returning but we have the lovely additions of Jenny and her husband, P. Unfortunately Rena couldn't make it since she moved and Cat is injured, BUT she will be our team driver! I can't wait! This year our team name is "Sole Sisters and their Misters".
Can't wait to do this again!
The following weekend Mike and I will be racing in the Flower City Challenge. We picked the Double Du which entails racing the duathlon (5K run, 20 mile bike, 5K run) on Saturday and racing the half marathon on Sunday.
This will be our final "long run" of our training for the marathon. Although it wasn't the preferred way to do it, it was necessary since the marathon will only be a few short weeks after Flower City!
What's going on in your blogging, training and racing life?
