Tuesday's workout was a Tempo run of 7 miles in 49:23, average pace 7:03. I felt great and right in the zone on this run. We had a fun filled day of hanging out with my mom and brother and celebrating Chase's big day:

Wednesday I was having a pretty off/bad day! I had a ton going on and was reaching my breaking point ... so I went out for a run. I got to 6.5 miles in 48 mins and called it my "Stress Relief" run! It helped but I needed a great girlfriend to get me back to reality. It is amazing what exercise and a great chat will do for you!! I had to work Wednesday night into Thursday and all these little babies wanted to be born so work went by pretty fast.
Thursday I did 11 miles in 1:26 @ 1% incline. I did this run on the TM because it decided to get humid again here in Delaware. Geez! I felt great and it was going smoothly until the last 2 miles when my left hip flexor got a little tight. It is shocking how quickly the body wants to compensate and adapt to the source of discomfort. I followed my run up with my PT exercises and worked my hamstrings and back.
At 8:55 pm I got a text from my girlfriend Alicia ( who is 37 wks pregnant ) MY WATER JUST BROKE!! Of course, this happens when I am not working and my hubby was working late!! Little Mr. Mason decided to make his arrival on Sept. 28 @ 01:33 am...He is the cutest little man:

So today after having a great PT session and getting put back in proper alignment I feel like a new person! I have a few areas to improve in mobility but all in all is good. I decided to take today off from running so I did the Expresso bike for 20 miles in 1:15 and it was full of hills.
We have a weekend full of football, soccer, parties and a 20 miler!
What are your weekend plans?
