But Wednesday, the weather continued to be pretty decent for mid-MO (40's-50's) and I knew I'd regret it if I slacked off again. So while the boys were at archery practice and my girl was chilling out to whatever her recent favorite Netflix show is, I took off in the twilight to get in a short run. I went with my short sleeve shirt and was pretty chilly the first 10 min or so. I ran to the end of the sidewalk, back through the Wakodas and back to the other end of the sidewalk (cue Shel Silverstein poem). I had it in my head this would be a 5K, but alas I was disappointed yet again to not have a GPS watch (see a theme I am working on to show my husband how much I need one?). It was 2.9 miles, but a pretty good effort so I'll take it. Took a pic of the pretty sunset with my son's MP3 player I'd borrowed for tunes.

Today I was determined to get my street project plans and specs basically finished come hell or high water. I'm putting it out to bid next week and I really needed to just get it to the point I could let it go. After slogging away at it for most of the day (minus having to go out for a new roll of paper for our wide format plotter - ugh), I was super glad to be heading to the pool. Husband was taking kids out to dinner so I was in no hurry to be anywhere. I knocked out another 1900 yards (or so - I lost count daydreaming about the GPS watch so it is possible there was an extra 50 or so). It took the greater part of an hour - so slow (about 2:18/100). But I got it done.
I was pleased to come home to a check in the mail from a client. Turned out that he had sent me a check in December that the postal service had lost. Was glad I followed up on the accounts receivable in January - yay me! That pretty much guarantees that tomorrow will be a run day. I'm long overdue a Walmart/Central Bank 5K. Will have to squeeze that in between our usual Saturday laundry and a lunch date with a friend who wants me to talk engineering stuff with her son who is heading to MS&T (Rolla, MO) in the fall.
So not a bad week with a little reverse triathlon. How did your week of training go?
Swimming = 3800 yds = 2.16 mi
Biking = 104.5 miles
Running = 47.3 miles
