Training Recap + Weekend Recap = one long post

Good morning lovelies!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend!  I sure did!

First things first... Training Recap for the week:

Swim: 1800 yds, 2 workouts - My swimming right now is focused on breathing and correct form. The master's swim class has been worth every dollar of the $35 it is costing me per month.  Seriously.  You should find one in your area if you want to work on form, technique, and effeciency.  I have two more work outs focused on drills, then I will be worked into the normal workouts which average 3000 yds per workout.

Bike: 42 miles - Saturday morning are my long rides so this makes up the most of my mileage currently.  I tried a new ride with the PBA on Saturday and it's still too slow for my pace.  Not sure if I'm ready for the "tweener" ride (45 miles at 16mph average) but - I think after I get through this race weekend I may try it.  It is not a no drop ride so if I get dropped I can always make my way home.

Run: 5 miles (should have been 11) - I missed my Sunday 6 mile run.  Which means I'm going to have to work in the mileage this week.  Not sure if I will work in one extra 6 mile run on my day off or possibly work in two three milers.  I need to talk with Lea and see.  I bought new running shoes on Friday and was kinda ticked  I missed my run to try them out.  Oh well, if the weather cooperates today I may try and sneak in a few miles just as a test run.  (Look forward to a shoe post soon)

Total Mileage: 48.02 miles.5.5 hours

Weekend Recap:

Ummm... it was a baseball weekend for this girl.  My Texas Rangers came home with a 2 game lead in the ALDS vs. Tampa Bay.  Bill bought tickets for the Saturday night game and we loaded up and headed out for a tailgate after my bike ride on Saturday.  Poor Rangers couldn't pull it out - but that was a-ok because we had tickets for Sunday's game too.... 20 rows behind home plate to be exact :)  BUT - disappointing...couldn't clinch then either...so it's back to Tampa for game 5.

We purchased game 7 ALCS tickets (saying we go to game 7 versus the Yanks - first seeing that we wrap up the ALDS in Tampa).....

So I'm off to work...the big wigs are here....gotta go schmooooze...HOLLA!
