Week 4 (31 weeks to Ironman)

Tomorrow is 2013 and I really believe what you do on New Years Day defines how you want your year to go.  I always love going for a run on New Year's Day - I think the best way to start the New Year.  So tomorrow is a run with mile repeats :)

I got a short trainer ride in tonight as the boys watched football.  Yes, I am a dork riding on a trainer on New Year's Eve.

We haven't gone out on New Year's Eve in years.  Not sure why....I guess as you get older the thought of going out with a bunch of drunks loses its appeal.

I started watching Deadwood tonight...I really hope it's a good seris!

Week 4 - This week was not very eventful - 1 bike and 3 runs. I had a really good run on Sunday though and made me feel confident about the Napa Marathon coming up. It would be nice to break 4 hours again.

Monday - REST - well, kind of. Made dinner for 12 guests at our house - didn't get a workout in.

Tuesday -  REST - Christmas Day - Didn't get a workout in on this day either.

Wednesday - 
Bike - 1 hour trainer ride.  Woke up to pouring rain and decided to ride instead of run.

Thursday - 
Run - 1 hour run in the morning  - Z2, not too hard.

Strength - got in pull ups and pushups at the park

Friday - Whoops!  Put off my trainer ride hour after hour.  Until it got to 8 PM and just couldn't get the motivation to get on it.

Saturday - 
Run - Another hour run in the morning - ran faster and felt really good. Maybe all these rest days are helping!

Sunday - 
Run - Great 13.1 run.  This run felt great and held a 9:07 pace for a 2 hour 1/2 marathon.  Felt like I could have kept going at the end.

I am currently on the 1st week of the Be Iron Fit 30 week plan.  I really want to get every planned workout in.  So far so good :)
