Green Everything..

This weeks spin class was a full on St. Patty's Day party!  We worked very hard and also laughed very hard...The ride was filled with tons of fast flats and quick leg turnover while the music was all Irish themed and fast beats.  We had green beads, green pins, green H2O, green wigs, shirts, shorts and Irish cookies to finish off the class!  This totally made working out and working hard way more fun....
My Beads!
LOVE these girls!
Wednesday was my speedwork day and it actually went really well... 2 mile warm-up @ 8:12 pace then 3 x 1600 meter repeats with 60 seconds recovery between each paces were 6:31, 6:22, 6:18... OUCH!  Then a 2.5 mile cooldown @ 7:41 - 7:50 pace.  I then joined Angel on the stairmonster for a few minutes and then pretended to do ab work! 

The past 2 nights at work have been very challenging and busy... so mentally I was drained and needed to take Thursday as a rest day!  Lately I have been putting way too much on my schedule and trying to squeeze it all in and sacrificing sleep....which I am realizing is an awful idea! 

I have a 20 miler scheduled for this weekend to fit in on top of a 8:30 am to 3:30 pm lacrosse play day for my team tomorrow and my son's first Reconciliation on Sunday!
Lord help me rock this last 20 miler before Boston!! 

I know I am getting old when it is St. Patty's Day Weekend and I have no bar hopping or green beer drinking planned at all!  Booo.

Oh well at least my mom bought this for me and my boys:
This Leprechaun cake/bread is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!  Go pick some up from Great Harvest Bread Co. before it is all gone! 

Any one racing this weekend?  

Good luck to everyone running the Ceasar Rodney Half Marathon on Sunday!!

Happy Running!
