originally i was thinking about birds to tie in our invitations, or horses as a nod to the year in kentucky, but when i was shopping on etsy last week i came across these and i couldn't resist.
i am not a) losing or b) chasing after a boy! :)
these little runners are made by heather boyd. she was very easy to work with and shipped them out immediately. i am hoping to turn these into christmas ornaments or something after we devour cake; they are too perfect to just be stored away. she also makes little bicyclist figures, hint hint to you cyclists/triathletes out there ;-)
week in review (7/5 - 7/11)
total miles: 13.35 (major fail)
time spent running: ~ 2 hrs 04 mins
avg hr: unknown. still didn't feel like wearing the strap.
avg run pace: 9:21/mile
off days: 5... good lord lindsay.
my new trend: two weeks at 30+ mpw and then 'cutback' to 10-15mpw. wouldn't want to overdo it! technically i only had 4 off days. i biked again on sunday when i slept in and it was too dang hot to attempt a run (i haven't been sleeping well at night, so i cut myself some slack at getting up early -pre sunrise- this weekend). also, my mac got fixed under the warranty. the hard-drive crashed and they couldn't recover anything. thank goodness for backblaze.
sunday (7/11) am bike ride: 27.40 miles, 1:53:40 (still ~14.5 mph)
same route, no improvement.
