Tis the Season!

Wow,  where has time gone?!?!   This past week has been a whirl wind and jammed packed with lots of work, fun, exercise and family time.  It has been an emotional week for me and I just needed a few days to disconnect and figure some things out.  But now I am back in the blogasphere and ready to reconnect.  OK so here is was my workouts this week looked like:

Sunday:  10.25 miles in 74 minutes and this run just felt right and everything clicked!  It was pretty windy and cold but I didn't care because running at the beach is my all time favorite!  This also happens to be a part of the Rehoboth Beach Marathon course where I ran. 

Monday:  Worked Sunday night into Monday so after a quick nap I rode the Expresso Bike and did 11 miles of constant hills followed by the stairmonster for 30 minutes. 

Tuesday: 9 mile run that looked like this... ran 4 miles of hills with max incline of 4% with a pace of 7:47 then switched gears and ran 4 miles of speed intervals ( 800 m repeats with 400 m RI ) and finished with 1 recovery mile.

After my workout Nicole, Shirley and I loaded up and went to PA to go to our Annual Harrisburg PA Craft Show!  We have been doing this for, oh my goodness, 11-12 years now and always have the greatest time!  This is something us girls look forward to every year and we always have a feast of steak, salad, potatoes with cheese sauce and crab legs at Aunt Patty's house when we get there.  If you are in PA or close by I highly recommend going to this craft show it is amazing and has such great finds. 
Wow all the decorations!

My shopping battle wounds from carrying bags

Wednesday:  Craft Shower power walking!

Thursday: 8 mile run in 62 minutes with a average pace of 7:45...this was a rough day for me and I just laced up and hit the road.  It is amazing how running can be so therapeutic.  I got called into work and worked 12 hours on midnight shift and had the nicest patient who reminded me why I love my job!

Friday:  5.2 miles in 38 minutes followed by some much needed leg lifting!  I tend to get so focused on my running and cardio and sometimes slack off on the weights.  This reminded me today that I HAVE to start back up with 2 x a week of lifting!!  My hamstrings are practically non existent and were screaming after 2 sets of weights!  Oh boy!
Wall squats and walking lunges!
Friday was also report card day and I am so proud of my boys!  They also brought home there school pictures:
My 8 yr old linebacker!

My 5 yr old model!
